‘The baseline forecast envisions a 5.2 percent contraction in global GDP in 2020, using market exchange rate weights—the deepest global recession in 6 decades.’
‘The pandemic is expected to plunge most countries into recession in 2020, with per capita income contracting in the largest fraction of countries globally since 1870.’
The above excerpts are from a report on The World Bank’s website. The Covid-19 pandemic has hit the world economy hard. Around the world startups, small-medium scale businesses as well as big businesses are shutting down and crumbling under the pressure of the global pandemic. In plain words, for many businesses the challenge for now is survival rather than growth.
A question arises here: How to sustain a business during the Covid-19 pandemic?
Sustenance and survival depends upon a number of things. Because of this situation due to Covid-19, you will have to get a number of things absolutely right. The goal right now should be to do enough to exist for now but work hard on branding in order to build a catapult launch pad for your growth and development in the future.
Then again, how to sustain a business? Here I have listed out some things that I think one should be doing during the pandemic to help sustain now and further grow a business in the future:
Take your Business Online
We have heard in numerous places, ”Take your business online, it will yield great benefits!” So, does integrating or even switching to an online marketplace actually help grow and sustain your business? Definitely YES! We are currently hit by a worldwide pandemic and no one knows when or if things will get back to normal. People are confined to their homes most of the times. Almost everyone is online most of the times. In this situation when direct dealings and shop visiting is not possible, an online store will benefit you very much. From clothes to cakes, electrical supplies to websites you can sell anything online and it will definitely help you sustain and bolster your business during the pandemic.
Focus on Branding
During hard times, only those who are tough come out swinging! This is your opportunity to focus on your branding and reach. Conduct giveaways if possible, engage people with your content, do things that will make the people remember your brand, try and be unique in your approach. This might not seem very important right now, but in the long run it will help you heaps. So, focus on your branding during these times and reap the benefits later on!
The most vital part of online businesses is creating proper engagements. You need people to interact with the things you post and share. To accomplish this, make sure you post relevant and trending content so that people get stimulated by your posts. Be quick to catch trends!
The days when people used to stay in front of their TV screens when free are long behind us. The internet is the new global platform where people pass their time. We should definitely use this to our advantage. Advertise your product and services online via social media platforms, search engines etc. The more people see your brand, the better for your sales and branding purpose. Is it costly? Not at all! The cost of online advertising is meagre in comparison to print and other forms of advertising. Along with that you get to target the audience according to their age, interest, demographics and other parameters as such which is not possible with traditional approach to advertisements. This is how to sustain a business.
Perseverance is key!
Last but not the least, one must show perseverance in their work. As mentioned above, economies are crumbling all around the world. It is definitely tough to sustain and grow your business during these touch times. Regardless of the present results and sales, you must continue your hard work and dedication so that when finally all this mess clears, you will have a great launch pad to continue your business.
How to sustain a business is a challenge and dealing with setbacks is a major part of running a business. This is a setback. How you come out of this all depends on you! Good Luck!
Every year, Nepal is hit hard by monsoon that causes a huge number of deaths, destruction of property and infrastructure. Nepal is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world because of its jagged surface and unique climatic conditions. It is ranked fourth in terms of vulnerability to climate transformation impacts. The country is susceptible to all sorts of disaster — man-made and natural disasters, like floods, landslides, windstorms, hailstorms et cetera. This year as well, like previous years since the development of Nepal Flood Relief application, we will enable it with specific features that aims to help the flood victims. Nepal Flood Relief is one of the most useful platforms to address all type of emergency response needs that may occur during the flood and landslide related disasters in Nepal.
Nepal Flood Relief aims to help flood victim in a way we can, here are some essential features:
- Push Notification Communication – Status post and updates, Quick help request,
- Latest Flood Status – Live updates, crowd sourced,
- Need Assessments and lists,
- Location Based Volunteers,
- Join Teams and Collaborate
The southern part of the country is battered by monsoon floods whereas the hilly districts are affected by landslides every year. Especially in the Terai region of Nepal, due to the rapid population rise, we come across many cases of encroachment of land and deforestation which ultimately results in flood and landslides. Currently (Monsoon of 2020), more than 25 districts have been facing problems of flood and landslide with the most severe damage observed at Siraha, Sarlahi, Saptari, Mahottari and Rautahat districts of Province 2 and Sunsari, Morang and Udayapur districts of Province 1.

What is vector image and how is it useful?
If you are wondering what a vector image is? Then in simple words vector image is made up of points, lines, and curves that are based upon mathematical equations, rather than a solid colored square pixels. This means that no matter how large or small or how close you zoom in on the image, the lines, curves, and points remain smooth. The benefits are:
- They are small and flexible

Day 53 of the nationwide lockdown today when I am writing this and as of now, the duration of this pandemic can only be guessed. It could be months before it is safe to return to our pre-Corona lifestyles. Personally for me, it has been quite an experience adjusting to this life in lockdown. Everything from work, learning, communication has been online and without much social interaction, things can get quite monotonous and it might affect our mood, behavior and mental health.
HOW AM I COPING WITH THE LOCKDOWN?
As soon as I realized that this lockdown could last a very long time (that was a week into the lockdown), I decided on some things to help adjust with this unfortunate situation. These were what I decided was required:
• Acceptance was first in line. I accepted that the fact that we are in a perishable situation and staying home is what must be done in order to control the spreading of the virus. It can extend to an indefinite period of time.
• After that I needed a routine. How to get along with my day? As I am working from home, it was perhaps easier for me to deal with being locked down as work keeps your mind off other things. Working at Cellapp Innovations and SmartPalika, it is amazing to see how efficiently things get done even while working from home! If you are not working, you could think of things to do like learning to play a new instrument or watching all the best rated movies in IMDB or anything else. It does not have to be a compulsion, just make a flexible routine but meet your targets, get things done!
• I decided to follow a daily workout routine (I don’t really exercise)! As our movements halt, no sports, no going out for activities, we must at least stretch our body once a day. Just to condition the body.
• As I went on thinking about ways to cope with the lockdown, I decided to focus on the positive things that is happening due to this lockdown. Personally for me, I thought of things like: Spending quality time with family. Healthy homemade food every day. Watching sunsets. Working from your bed (not advisable). Learning new skills (I cut my dad’s hair). You could have your own experiences, but we must always try and look forward with optimism and positivity.
• I decided to take at least 15 minutes every day to meditate. Does wonders, trust me!
After all, we must make the most out of what we are dealt with in life!
SO, IS IT WORKING? AM I REAPING THE BENEFITS?
I would say that I am doing very well. In terms of my mental health and well-being, I feel fresh and I look forward to each day with hope, optimism and positivity. The things I do every day have made it easier for me to adjust and mold into this lockdown.
Professionally, I am proud to be able to contribute in helping develop, distribute and implement a Covid-19 Management System to use for local governments of Nepal, free of cost. You can check our work timeline HERE.
It is a difficult time for all of us. Just remember that in a crisis, the winners come out swinging! Stay safe!
