What's your current business status

You should notify your existing and new customers with your current capacity for new projects, different services offered, delays to expect, changing operative hours.

What method is best to notify your customers?

Different customers are best reached using different methods, this can be through website notifications, blog posts, newsletters, printed media, or social media posts or best yet all of the mentioned methods.

Popups

Popups are prevolant, they demand attention are often the first thing you see when you land on a website making them a perfect way to relay important information.

Notification bars

You may have noticed these already appearing on top sites like Amazon, ASOS or eBay. A notification bar at the top of the site is less intrusive than a popup whilst still being noticable and informative. They can also be utilised for other information such as promotions once lockdown has passed.
