Yes, we wrote about this not too long ago, but this is important, particularly since September is National Preparedness Month.

 

Disaster.jpgWe never know when a disaster will strike; small business owner in particularly need to have a plan in place to keep your business up and running.

 

Earlier today we issued a news release with a long list of helpful tips to help you be prepared, below are some key ones specifically for small business owners.

 

  • Back up your archives and documents, including critical business data, stored on your computers. Verizon’s Online Backup & Sharing will allow any small-business owner to back up these important files to secure remote servers that only the user can access from anywhere with an Internet connection, including via a smartphone.

  • Consider adding a Jetpack to your disaster survival toolkit.  A fully charged mobile hot spot can give you 4G LTE access instantaneously.  Plus, Mobile Hotspot users can share their signal with several devices, enabling fellow disaster victims to gain access.

  • Update the “Contact Us” page on your website to include an email address. This is an additional method of communication for your customers to keep in touch with you.

 

  • Add sign-up forms to your website and other social media platforms to capture contact information for your customers. This will allow you to communicate with them in case you have to temporarily close your business.
