There’s no doubt about it, we’re living through some very strange times at the moment. I feel for anyone who is struggling for whatever reason, whether it’s for financial or mental health reasons, or anything at all. It is affecting everyone differently and we’re all doing what we can to get through it.
So, what about Webfooted Designs? Well we’re still going! I can’t tell you how lucky I feel to have been able to continue working through the lockdown. We moved our business home for a couple of months but are now back working in our office. It has really made me appreciate our office even more – getting out of the house to go to work is an absolute joy.
It’s been an interesting learning curve for me running meetings through Zoom. I think I’ve always shied away from providing a service through video chat because I’m a bit camera shy. But I’m really seeing the benefit of it now, particularly with being able to see the person I’m talking to and screen sharing to discuss different parts of their website. It’s so much better than a phone conversation, I think I might be a real convert!
I’ve also been taking part in some webinars with Truro and Penwith College, to help me get some inspiration for how to continue developing our business in this brave new world. That’s also been really interesting to see how webinars can be used for training, and I’m picking up some really good ideas.
I haven’t quite brought myself to take part in online networking … yet. But I think it’s only time before I dip my toe in. If you’re thinking of trying out some online networking have a listen to Trevor Lee’s podcast on the subject.
