How small business survived the COVID-19 Pandemic? 

The COVID-19 global pandemic has implemented strict quarantine measures both for government and local communities. The outbreak shuts down the economy – industries related to non-essentials were forced to close. The unemployment percentage increases, those who have work were now experiencing “without a paid job.” Businesses without contingency plan will continue to suffer loss of equity and resources. Vulnerabilities were revealed to business with traditional operations. Likewise, opportunities were also revealed to business models who are ready to disrupt the process. 

Existing businesses who earlier embrace the functions of technology are now doing as usual. In fact, they are regarded as essential services. With the consumers’ high demand, automated services are geared towards new normal. Even before the start of any emergency crisis, this type of business renegade itself as a major alternative – services that are accessible in the palm of your hands.

Examples of brick and mortar industries are the: Traditional side-street store or business like small grocery store, cooperative stores, auto parts and services, local salon, eatery or carideria, bakery, fruit and vegetable stand, poultry supply, lifestyle custom store, etc. These are the business models that provides product and services through face-to-face transaction.  

As a result of the pandemic, some of these small business experience struggles. Others were able to operate because food business, processing and manufacturing were essential goods and services. The local government allowed them to operate. Due to fear build-up, some people tend to depend on services that offers instant delivery. This is where digital presence comes in handy. Local community sellers came up with a portal, say social media page creation for Barangay Batasan Hills Community Vendors. Sellers and resellers starts to have online orders and deliveries. For sellers who aren’t capable of delivering the goods, the buyer (customer) avails a logistic delivery (drop shipping) of pick up/pay/home deliver.
