How Did COVID-19 Affect JDWeb Solutions?
We Did Not Know What to Expect
I’ll admit that I was not sure what the impact would be on JDWeb Solutions when COVID-19 marched onto the scene in 2020. In fact, I was rather surprised by the very pleasant impact that this season of time had on our agency. Clients were calling our phone off the hook! Suddenly, everyone got it, the importance of “going virtual.” For years we had consulted many clients on the way they could increase engagement and income by implementing virtual solutions. Almost overnight it was no longer a choice. It was “swim virtually or sink!”
Loss of Life
First, let me say that in a time when many businesses shut down or were adversely affected, we are tremendously grateful that we were able to be the knight in shining armor to so many small businesses and organizations. Make no mistake about it, COVID-19 did affect some of our staff. One person’s mother, husband, and daughter all contracted coronavirus which affected her ability to work on JDWeb projects on various occasions. Another team member loss her father during this time when he was having complications due to other health issues and decided to receive the COVID vaccine and consequently was diagnosed with COVID. One of our clients contracted the coronavirus, and one of our clients very sadly passed away during this time.
So yes, we were affected, but not in the ways many businesses have been who are now closed down for good.
