Internet usage has increased dramatically over the last two months. While part of this is people turning to Netflix and the other streaming networks when locked-down, much of it is for communication purposes. And social media is now a preferred form of communication for most people.

People may not be thinking about being close to their hairdresser or taking their car in for a service. They may not be allowed to order a takeaway or go to a bar. But they will still be interested in you. They will take particular notice of useful, engaging content you may share, and are likely to remember your name, even if they have never used your services previously.
