Stuck at home? Got nothing to do? Bored out of your mind? Bless the heavens for the internet!
The sensational digital advancement that saved us all from staring at empty spaces pondering how to be productive with limited movement. With it, we can easily connect online in just a click of button or a press on the screen –that easy! Using it as a platform provided us with a variety of things to do while stuck in quarantine, you can even say the possibilities are limitless!
From finding information, communicating with people all over the globe, managing finances, starting an online business, listening to music, watching videos or movies, finding a job -the list goes on and on never running out. Without a doubt there is myriad of things you can do, but with all those mentioned, how important really is the internet amidst the pandemic? Or is it even that important? Well, it is, and here are the reasons why:
- Looking for a Job
The pandemic brought disaster upon disaster, it is not even limited to it being a health crisis, it even bred an economic crisis. Thousands upon thousands lost their jobs crippling the economy of many countries. Workers are not allowed to attend to their jobs like they did before in fear of the virus spreading. They are stuck at home either retrenched from the jobs or even losing it at all. The severe damage being said, how does one remedy this? The solution –world wide web. It is called the internet for a reason, interconnected networks provides a vast capability for connections. These connections paved way to what is now called “work-from-home”. A man from Japan can now work at his home with clients across a thousand miles with the simple use of the internet. Teaching and selling can now even be done through the same use of this platform. So, not only do you get an option to work at the comfort of your own home, you can even become your own boss in the business you started online, all these while being quarantined. So when lots of people lost their jobs, thankfully the internet came to the rescue, they can now provide food and other essentials to their families through looking for a job in the internet.
- Looking for a Client
It has been explained earlier that the internet can be used to look for a job, on the flip side of that, it can also be used as a great tool for looking-up potential clients. When you have started a business online, the next step is looking for clients, be it offering services or goods, an ideal businessperson with good acumen will always use effective means to get more of the market share or the clients. With that being said, it is a no-brainer to use the internet since it is the widest known network available to showcase and market one’s business. Majority of the world is connected through the internet, which means that if you invest on marketing through the internet, majority of the world can also have access to what you can offer –no matter the distance! Words can now even describe how convenient this is, despite the pandemic compromising your ways to get potential clients near you, with the use of the internet you can now have a bigger avenue to look for those potential clients. A bigger lake to catch bigger fish!
- Expanding the Business
With points two and three already established, the last point would be sustaining the momentum and expanding the business or service. Starting your own business may seem hard but the competition that follows after without a doubt is tougher. Great business ventures will also lead to greater competitions, if you lack the ingenuity, craftiness, and creativity to promote your brand, it will only die together with others that failed the cut. In order to avoid this, it is advised to expand and invest in areas where most eyes are focused on. Where do you find that? The internet. With many among us quarantined in their homes, more and more people are spending a lot of time in the internet, these people are not just your regular citizens -they could also be investors, businesspersons, contractors, and others like you wanting to earn some profit through connections. Being affiliated with these people and getting your brand to their eyes is a great way to expand the business and ripple possible clients and revenues. The investment is not even that costly yet the results magnify that little courage to expand through the internet. It is like getting free money just because you decided to press a button. How amazing!
The internet is definitely a multipurpose tool no matter the situation. When the world is suffering with a plague, there is a call to be resilient and not give up to whatever trials that come. A call to persevere no matter the odds and still hope for a better future in store for everyone. The internet is an avenue for all of these, it gives hope to the beaten to rise up again and see that better future. An important symbol of unity and human resilience amidst these dire times.
