We understand the current situation is not very promising and everything looks very down, but I am sure you would agree that it won't stay for long & things will get to normal pretty soon.

Our understanding working with few of the worlds most successful companies is that they have benefited most during such slowdowns, as given them time restructure and strengthen their backbones to be prepared to take up increased demands.

And Many Printers are genuinely affected badly so they don't know what to do next. If you are print business please share your comments on the below questions.

1. We have had a slowdown, but not to the extent of a lot of companies on here. We do a lot of work for the Real Estate segment and while they have slowed, they haven't stopped which keeps us going.

2. Im using this slow time to develop an online store and marketing campaign for our real estate customers. It will also give us a way to market more promotional products towards them too.

1. How do you see your business affected during COVID-19?

Ans: COVID-19 is much more than we think. Printers who don't have an online presence as they are badly hit and 100% closed and lose business to competitors that do have an effective online presence. So now they realised the importance of taking the business online.

2. What are you planning & doing currently to get prepared when things start getting normal?

Ans: Printers you need to have an online presence and utilize their quarantine period in the web to print technology which makes your business 24X7 available because your prospects and customers expect you to have one.

We chose not to participate in Covid19 hysteria and continue offering top quality, superior service, at a fair price... it’s worked for 36 years and I expect it to continue. Customers really prefer the small local relationship we offer. This internet thing is just a flash in the pan. It won’t last.

I completely agree, w2p geek! I'm dismayed to read that one of the other responders thinks "this internet thing is just a flash in the pan"! Really? Red-Tie has been around since 2003 - hardly a "flash in the pan?"

I think @Fyshy was kidding @ehurwitch - LOL

We at SmartSoft are software developers - and all of our offerings are Saasy / Cloudy - while no one has been to the office in nearly 3 months except to gather monthly checks our of the offices mailbox, we have seen absolutely no change during this Covid-19 crisis - and since PresWise is a LAMP project, all the Devs have been working from home since 2006 anyway, so, there really was no big issue for sales and support to work from home.

Congratulations on hanging around so long... especially in the cold impersonal online print business. I have done extensive research in our market and the numbers show that customers prefer stopping by my shop and visiting with me before placing their print order. The stats don't lie. 2 to 1 they prefer the personal service touch we have offered since 1984. Yes, we polled 3 people and are happy to say that 66.7% prefer us to online print buying (2 divided by 3 = 66.7%)
"Shop local... build a stronger community".
