Business hours changing because of COVID-19? Don’t forget to tell Google, Yelp and Facebook

Open signs, real and virtual

With COVID-19, it’s more important than ever that customers know when you are open and how to contact you. Make sure that the information your customers find is accurate.

I’m writing from one of the U.S. hotspots for COVID-19. Many businesses I frequent have been forced to close their storefronts or limit their hours. Disruption to business hours is the new normal right now.

Just about everyone is trying to stay inside to help slow the spread of the disease and keep safe. But, life needs to go on and people are searching for safe alternatives to do business.

Maybe you recently had to turn off your storefront’s physical Open sign. But, don’t forget about all of your virtual Open signs that are hanging out on the internet.

Google, Yelp, Facebook and your website all provide your customers with your business hours, phone number, location and other contact information. Be sure that information is correct.
