For the past few months, the world economy has struggled with the devastating impact of COVID-19. With everyone trying to cope with the “new normal,” businesses are scrambling to create a new standard operating protocol for what is ultimately uncharted territory.
Thirteen trillion dollars were allocated by governments worldwide to secure and rebuild their country’s economy amidst the pandemic. Yet, analysts expect most of the affected countries to face serious recessions. Countermeasures such as social distancing led to the closure of markets, offices, businesses, and events. And the continuous spread of the virus and the constant rise of the number of cases have increased uncertainty over a drastically worsening situation.
Errin Duffin, published in Statisa.com that as of June 9, the COVID-19 pandemic posed a level seven threat to businesses globally.

Nevada had the dubious distinction of boasting the country’s worst unemployment rate at 25.3%.

Also, shops, malls, and restaurants are now allowed by many governments to open, albeit with precautionary stipulations in place. Still, we cannot ensure that consumers will immediately return to their buying habits due to financial challenges. One marketing strategy that some businesses have adapted to overcome their challenges is outsourcing.
