Resources for U.S. SMBs (small-business owners)

Do you know McKinsey’s #1 tip for businesses willing to be up and running again?

“Take your business online.” It seems obvious, but many small business owners still hesitate to do it as they don’t believe it’s easy. One of our thankful clients told us “As a beginner entering this digital world, the online presence was a hard thing to achieve.” I want to tell all entrepreneurs: the market is already offering excellent solutions to small businesses. These are tools that anyone without coding and designing skills can use. And some of them are even free. Like Boxmode.

So, don’t be shy. Go online. Because all your competitors and customers are already there.
