With many coffee shops, bars, venues, restaurants and retailers shuttered due to the pandemic, these are difficult times for America’s small businesses. Charter has rolled out new online tools and resources to help them navigate the economic challenges brought on by this difficult time.
The Spectrum Business website now contains a new set of tools and resources for small businesses, including links to the federal Small Business Administration’s (SBA) various pandemic-related financial assistance programs. The company also is working with SCORE, a nonprofit partner of the SBA, which has mentors and advisors to help business owners navigate SBA loans; the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act; or any other challenges business owners might be facing.
In addition, small business owners can search articles within Spectrum Business Insights to help them make the most of working remotely, tips for using products such as advanced calling features, which enable business owners to stay connected while they are at work or away, or access to Security Suite for antivirus software and malware protection, at no additional cost to customers.
Spectrum Reach, the advertising arm for Charter, is also working with local businesses to provide guidance and support, including access to resources, insights and creative solutions aimed at helping businesses and their communities rebound together. This includes a partnership with Waymark to offer a free 30-second video that any business can create and use on their website, share on social media, or use on television with a discounted TV campaign.
Small business owners can count on Charter to continue delivering services, support and reliable network performance so they can stay connected to their businesses, suppliers, customers and communities when it matters most. More information is available here.
