Dify Social® COVID-19 Communications


An important message to Dify Social's small business customers and network (23 Mar, 2020, page updated 19 Sep, 2021)

Try not to be a business "deer in headlights" during this challenging COVID-19 pandemicnow is NOT the time to stop communicating with your networks and target communities.

Share what you are doing; what actions are you taking to keep yourself, your staff and your customers safe.

Even if you do have to close or suspend services for a period, tell people what you are doing ‘on the business’ so that when you resume you’ll be able to offer a better service (or products). Otherwise people will simply assume you’ve succumbed to the crisis.

If you need help (*see response below) with your social media, Dify Marketers are  available to conduct online webcam chats, '(BNI) one-to-one' meetings, 'audit & consults' and 'setup & planning' sessions with Whereby refer => https://whereby.com/difysocial/stevehubbard (room has capacity for 50pax).

To check availability and to book an appointment, please phone 1300 DO SOCIAL, email marketer@difysocial.com.au, or visit Facebook page

Stay healthy, remain informed and don’t stop communicating!

Steve Hubbard, Dify Social, Director & Social Media Marketer
