Businesses who are open at this time can now showcase themselves on a new web page developed by local website developers Catalyst Directions.

Catalyst Directions’ Social Media Manager Andy McLucas said it was important that potential customers know who they can still do business with.

“We felt as though people in the area needed a simple, one-stop-shop area where they can find out exactly what businesses are still trading – and in what capacity,” Andy said.

“By having links to their social media platforms and websites, their customers can still get in touch with them at the click of a button.

“It can be quite difficult to find a large amount of information through Facebook, you may need to scroll through a lot of other stuff to find the information you're after.

“But we can offer a simple solution by having it all on one web page.”

Service free to all businesses

The service is free to all businesses in the Bundaberg region.

“We hope that every single business will reach out to us so we can list their opening hours and links to their website and social media.”

Information to be featured includes business name and industry, trading hours and if it's been altered by COVID-19 restrictions and their links to their Facebook page and website.

Catalyst Directions Digital Production Manager & Designer, Tim Sweetapple said the new web page, on Catalyst Directions’ website, has been launched and will evolve as things change.

“We’re hoping people will share this to their network of friends as we want local businesses to have the best chance of making it through the unknown,” Tim said.

Catalyst Directions will also be releasing regular blogs, which will give people tips on how to make the most of their online marketing and information on working remotely.

“In the coming weeks, we plan on running some digital seminars which will give businesses a tips and ideas on how to make the most of this down-time.

“We are here to help in any way we can – stay tuned on the Catalyst Directions Facebook page and our website for info.”

Businesses wanting to be included on the “COVID-19 Business Opening Hours” web page can send details to [email protected] or message via the Catalyst Directions Facebook page.
