It's very much a case of 'business as unusual' as we navigate through these challenging times, but we wanted to take this opportunity to reassure our clients, colleagues and contacts that sixredsquares is very much open for business during the COVID-19 pandemic and we will be continuing to support our clients in any way we can.
We have been busy taking all of the responsible steps to protect our team and they are now all working safely from home, with all of the necessary tools and resources to service our clients with minimum disruption. As a creative agency, we are probably better suited to these new constraints than most businesses and we have been fortunate that the current crisis has not hampered our ability to deliver. To our existing clients, we would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that we remain fully motivated and able to accommodate and complete your projects. And to any businesses seeking help with brand, web or marketing projects, our doors are wide open (well digitally anyway!).
However, we are acutely aware that many businesses have been placed under significant duress by the Coronavirus crisis and if there is anything that we can do to support our clients, old and new, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We feel that it is vital that we all support each other through these difficult times. Official government guidance for businesses is available here and is being kept regularly updated. This is a fast-moving situation and we will continue to work closely with all our partners and communities to ensure the safety of all.
In the meantime, we thought we’d share 5 useful tools that can help you work effectively from home and keep your day organised.
Forest – this is a great app that helps you stay away from your phone and stay focused on your work. Learn more about it here
Trello – a great tool for managing tasks and projects in a collaborative and organised way. Take a look here
Whereby – a lot of people are using Zoom, but we love this for video conferences and meetings. Check it out here
Roadmap – this is perfect for visualising ideas, aligning remote teams and tracking progress. More details here
Slack – an old favourite but still one of the best internal communications apps out there. Learn more here
We hope the above is helpful and provides some reassurance. If you need advice on any aspect of your marketing, from putting together social media content and writing blogs, to tackling Adwords and Google Analytics, we are here to help. We’re also offering free website reviews for any businesses looking to improve their online presence in the face of physical restrictions.
Stay fit and healthy and let’s carry on business as unusual.
