A B2B Website in the Age of COVID-19

October 9, 2020 | website | No Comments

In the age of COVID-19, there are minimal networking, tradeshow, or face-to-face selling opportunities. Many B2B companies who relied on these tactics for lead generation have been caught flat-footed and are in a state of panic due to the lack of leads.

Bop Design has a current client that has relied on a 1-page website for years because most of their sales were based on networking at trade shows and one-on-one relationship building. Since events and in-person meetings aren’t possible now, they realized they needed a better B2B website to help them with sales and conversions.

COVID-19 has exposed the need for every B2B marketing strategy to be multi-faceted. A multipronged B2B marketing strategy reliant on multiple lead generation tactics is always the best approach. This way when something unexpected comes up like a pandemic, you can turn to lead generation activities that are viable. Right now, and for the

InvestorPlace – Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

Internet of Things stocks continue to see strong growth when it comes to market size. But from my observation, neither investors nor consumers have grasped just how large this market will become.

Year by year, more and more devices are linking up. That’s creating a rich web of connected devices, meaning an explosion in data, and therefore a need for faster internet infrastructure.

As a result, there’s an entire realm of growing stocks that are benefiting from the Internet of Things (IoT). It’s also a group that will continue to benefit from growth for years to come, particularly as connectivity infrastructure builds out and 5G networks become mainstream.

Once upon a time, you would walk into a coffee shop and pray it had even a shoddy WiFi connection. Now it’s a shock to walk into a coffee shop, library or

Yelp has a zero tolerance policy for racism.

The company, which publishes and aggregates crowd-sourced business reviews, announced Thursday it will be placing a new “Business Accused of Racist Behavior Alert” on Yelp pages to warn users about businesses that have been said to display “overtly racist actions.” They will also include a direct link to a news article for consumers to learn more about the reported incident.

“We know these values are important to our users and now more than ever, consumers are increasingly conscious of the types of businesses they patronize and support,” Noorie Malik, vice president of user operations, wrote in a blog post. “In fact, we’ve seen that reviews mentioning Black-owned businesses were up more than 617% this summer compared to last summer. Support for women-owned businesses has also increased, with review

Uber app

Photographer: David Paul Morris/Bloomberg

Ride-hailing giant Uber Technologies Inc. outlined ways staff can support a state measure that would designate drivers as contractors rather than full-time employees, seeking additional backing for a controversial initiative that labor unions and at least one in-house engineer have publicly opposed.

In a companywide email Friday obtained by Bloomberg, Uber’s head of global public policy Justin Kintz said data “show a tight race” to pass California’s Proposition 22, a measure written and funded by Uber, Lyft Inc. and other gig companies that would replace an earlier law designed to treat drivers as employees. Kintz’s email, which includes links to talking points from the Yes on 22 campaign, also suggests ways employees can get involved, including joining a texting bank, and links to a sample email staffers can send to family and friends. Uber will have a special Town Hall-type meeting Oct.

The PS5 launches around the world in a little over month, and while there are still many lingering questions about how the system works, Sony has now shared some more details about PS5’s backwards compatibility. As with Xbox Series X, it appears some previous-gen games will get a performance boost when played on PS5 thanks to the console’s Game Boost feature.

As detailed on the PlayStation support website, Game Boost allows certain PS4 titles to “run with a higher or smoother frame rate” when played on a PS5. However, Sony notes that this will only apply to “select” games; it appears the performance boost won’t be applied across the board, as Xbox Series X does with Xbox One games.

Although Sony did not yet specify what games are able to take advantage of Game Boost, the company shed a bit more light on how it will work in a PlayStation

Between a pandemic and the 2020 presidential election, life in a cave is looking more and more viable these days.

That’s the appeal of a new stay found on Hotels.com, where they’re offering visitors a chance to “live under a rock” during the first week of November as a respite from the world’s ills.

Between Nov. 2 and 7, escapists can take cover in a design-inspired cave, carved out 50 feet below ground in New Mexico.

It’s the perfect opportunity for “those who are experiencing election stress disorder (this is a real thing!),” according to their website. And five nights at the inn costs just $25 plus tax — an “Abraham Lincoln-inspired” rate fit for a president of the late 19th century.

“After you’ve cast your ballot, you can check out of the newsfeed negativity and check in to a man-made cave,” the website continues.

The bedrock digs are booked

– By Ishan Majumdar

The Covid-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the way people are living their lives these days. This has led to a number of behavioral changes in the life of the average consumer, and one new aspect that has particularly gained importance is the use of zero-contact solutions. Consumers and businesses alike are looking to minimize contact with others as far as possible, whether through grocery delivery, healthcare, or payment solutions.

This “zero-contact wave” is likely here to stay for a while, and there are a number of companies providing solutions within this space that could heavily benefit from this new consumer behavior. Here are some of my picks.

Phreesia Inc.

The need for contactless healthcare services, particularly with the capacity of healthcare facilities being used heavily by Covid-19 patients, has pushed many consumers to telehealth providers. However, telehealth is not a solution for all kinds of healthcare
