Multiple businesses had to adjust to survive during the pandemic, and one way they did this is by switching to an online platform to offer their services. However, not all businesses can afford to switch over and operate remotely and offer their services online due to the nature of their respective industries. Because of this, some businesses thrived during the pandemic while others suffered.
Among the businesses that fared well during the pandemic are delivery service, e-commerce, fast-food, cybersecurity, remote work applications, gaming, and virtual assistant industries. Some of these industries had no problem operating during the pandemic since their services are essential. Others had to rely on VA services to help them adjust, particularly virtual assistant services Philippines which are cheaper than those in other countries.
Businesses had to hire Filipino virtual assistants to assist them in their shift to remote work setups, especially when securing their systems and learning to use remote work applications.Virtual assistants were instrumental in keeping many businesses afloat during the pandemic, and the industry thrived because of it.
If businesses are part of the industries mentioned above, they’re likely to have thrived during the pandemic. If the business isn’t part of the industries mentioned above but still managed to stay afloat thanks to virtual assistants, then they’ll likely thrive once COVID is over, especially since the VAs can offer a good lockdown exit strategy.
