How Better Connectivity Helped Businesses Thrive Amid the Pandemic
With better connectivity, many businesses attempted to innovate during the pandemic in an effort to stay afloat. It was also an opportunity to reexamine their business purpose.
Amazing Playground, a local business specializing in apparel used social media to study how their products can better serve customers, and at the same time find a sustainable way to maintain their business.
Thanks to technology and the availability of reliable internet, Amazing Playground found an opportunity to create a new line of products. Using retazos from their original clothing line, the company came up with a line of face masks that mirror the same unique style of its clothing line.
“Right now we’re doing better online. Through online connectivity, nagkaroon kami ng plans (we now have plans) to expand. Like now, for example, we’re trying to have a branch in Las Vegas. Unlike before, kung ano lang ang malalapit na areas (whichever areas are near), ‘yun lang nag nagiging market namin (that’s our only market). Now it becomes wider. Without connectivity, I guess maraming opportunities na mawawala (there will be a lot of missed opportunities),” shares Amis Tumang, Owner of Amazing Playground.
