To Our Ripl Community,
As the world confronts the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, all of our lives are certainly being affected. Ripl is taking all the steps necessary to keep our team, families, and community safe, as well as working hard each day to do everything we can to support as many small businesses as possible.
We believe that one of the most important ways you can support your business and community at this time is to continue to connect with your customers and advocate for your business through social media. In this time of “social distancing” and the disruption of our social lives, social media is playing a primary role in helping us all remain connected. You love your small business, and your loyal and frequent customers do too, so now is the time to use the power of social media to share that love with each other.
Ripl is committed to providing resources and support that you — and every small business—can use during this time. New design templates are being released daily, free for all Ripl users, to help you create the specific kinds of social media posts to keep your customers informed and aware of how they can support you. We are creating blog posts with curated small business industry news, best practices on how to respond to the COVID-19 changes, and resources to keep you informed. We are also actively seeking sources of inspiration for your business to grow and stay connected with other small business owners during this time. (See below in the “P.S.” for more on this.) Finally, we just released a special limited-time offer of a Free Month of Ripl Pro – our premium subscription membership with all Design Templates and Pro features unlocked – to help small businesses new to Ripl look great and engage their customers most effectively on social media right now.
Follow Ripl on social, visit our “Making Waves” Ripl blog, and turn on your Ripl app push notifications to stay informed over the upcoming weeks and months.
Stay healthy and safe,
The Ripl Team
P.S. We want to hear from you. Let us know if you have any questions or want to share ways that we can help small businesses at this critical time. We also would love to hear your personal stories of innovation and adaptation during this time so that we can share them within our team and feature them for the Ripl Community. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or share on our social media channels.
Here are some of the resources available to you now and where we’ll continue to add more.
