CoronaVirus and its Impact on Media Industries

Digital Transformation

COVID-19 is a terrible thing. It has taken thousands upon thousands of lives as well as causing people to lose businesses, jobs and more. That said, online media offers some hope for those who have not harnessed the power of Digital Transformation.

Doing it Digitally

As we have discussed with fans of this site and self proclaimed media nerds, the fact that in-person business took a terrible toll, many are getting even more involved with the web as a place to be. This translates into the importance of Digital Transformation in which a business figures out all the aspects of their business that can be done digitally and shifts to that use.

New Hope

Also, another factor of the horrible reign of the Pandemic, is that many folks are becoming interested in what the web can do for them, which is why more and more people are starting home based businesses and are becoming Home Business Achievers. Setting your sites on becoming a Home Business Achiever can be a way to leverage the media industries in the face of the virus! Hope eternal!

You Have to Work for It

As Easy as Pushing a Button?

We wish it was as easy as pushing a button. Unfortunately it is not. Your online business is going to take work. But also be sure to work smarter and not harder. Know what your most effective processes are and work them.

Plan Now

But how do you uncover the best way to run your business? The answer is that you need to go through a “business-marketing plan” phase. This is when you can plan how to do what you want to do.

Dry Run

Give it a dry run before you fully embrace it. Once you have your systems in place you’re ready to go. But remember: you have to work for it.

We Live in a DigiComArts World

Communication

We live in a DigiComArts or Digital Communication Arts World. Communication technology is all over and thank goodness for that. If we did not have the technology we now have, the Coronavirus would have an extra level of stress. How would we find out about updates? How would we communicate with others?

The Spanish Flu

Compared to the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic, Covid-19 may ultimately prove to be worse. 500 million people all over the world were affected by the Spanish flu. The fatality rate is estimated for the Spanish Flu to have been about 2 percent.

Reaching Out

The percentage of deaths of those caused by the Coronavirus are said to be about 5%. In the United States it is estimated to be under 3%. Again, thank goodness we have the means of communication that were not available in 1912. DigiComArts refers to technology in the arts but these same techniques are in common usage for reaching out to others. This same technology allows for staying fashionable even as the death toll rises.
