One thing that the Coronavirus pandemic has cemented for me is that adaptability is the key to success. With no time to prepare, business owners
all over have had to suddenly pivot away from tried-and-tested strategies to the unknown and unfamiliar. This shift has led to the growth of e-commerce
(check out our multi-part series on eCommerce, A Guide To Getting Online, with part one focusing on business strategy, and part two focusing on technology) and the rise of online meetings, virtual happy-hours,
and in-home training.

Over the past decade, the rise of video has been dominating the digital sphere. Nowadays, video is everywhere. Users are active on social media platforms
such as YouTube, and videos continue to populate our Twitter and Instagram feeds. YouTube first made its debut to the masses in the digital world back
in 2005, and the platform has grown at an exponential rate ever since. As a pioneer in video streaming, YouTube gave way to other video platforms over

will either be intere...
