With the COVID-19 pandemic’s virtual new world, many of the in-person methods for businesses to advertise, gain exposure, and demonstrate their sophistication are unavailable.
Now more than ever, having a professional online presence – a modern, accessible website, a digital marketing campaign, and advertising strategy – is crucial for your business’ success.
Our guest this week is Dawn Verbrigghe, CEO and Founder of Jottful, which works hand-in-hand with small business owners to build their websites and online presence in a “D-I-T” (Do it Together) fashion.
In addition to discussing websites, Dawn will share her experiences of finding silver linings to Covid-related challenges, and will discuss how Jottful emerged from a precarious pandemic with positive outcomes.

About Employment Law Today
Helping Business With Employment Law Issues.
For many business owners, it can be overwhelming to keep up and comply with the federal and state labor and employment laws that govern how they run their business. With the COVID-19 pandemic, there are new laws and regulations regarding hiring, firing, and workplace practices and protocols — all of which can increase business owners’ anxieties about regaining traction or thriving again. On my weekly show, we will be discussing the most common employment law related questions and challenges that business owners have been facing in these uncertain times.
The show will have three main goals: (1) to inform businesses about employment law updates, (2) to inspire businesses by giving them the tools to move forward, and (3) to demonstrate how some business owners have overcome their employment law problems, walked through the challenges imposed by this pandemic, and have taken steps to regain traction during the reopening phases of this pandemic.
Our guests will include professionals who advise businesses from an H.R., legal, and financial perspective, along with thriving business owners who will share their experiences and insights into running a successful company while complying with labor and employment law mandates during COVID-19.
