The global pandemic has created unique challenges for businesses of all sizes, especially for small businesses. According to GoDaddy’s entrepreneurship survey 66% of small business owners and entrepreneurs in the MENA have said that their top concern during the pandemic is reaching new customers This is followed by concerns around keeping the employees motivated and expanding their online presence to sell their products.
