SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. –
To help auto dealers and other small businesses continue their sales online during the COVID-19 crisis, consumer engagement technology company Digital Air Strike is partnering with GoDaddy for its #OpenWeStand campaign.
To help businesses and consumers do more online and virtually through video, AI, social media and automation, Digital Air Strike is giving away its Virtual Retailing Program.
Digital Air Strike, through the #OpenWeStand campaign, is offering GoDaddy’s customers Video Logix video technology free for 30 days. It is also offering Power Texting text blasts and a free budget review that it says can help businesses identify which vendors and ad expenditures show a return on the investments. A Digital Air Strike page features its offers.
GoDaddy says the #OpenWeStand website has become a central gathering place where entrepreneurs can learn, ask questions, lend advice and use resources available to them.
Along with brands such as Salesforce, Slack and PayPal, GoDaddy is contributing resources, tools and insights to help sustain entrepreneurs and the small microbusinesses they operate during the crisis.
Digital Air Strike and GoDaddy say their goal is to provide online tools to allow businesses to continue operate while their storefronts may be closed. Digital Air Strike was founded during the 2008-2009 Great Recession, and the company says it understands that to survive a financial crisis, “innovation and the willingness to adopt new technology and solutions” are important.
Digital Air Strike works with more than 5,000 businesses worldwide. Those include thousands of companies such as auto dealerships, major automobile manufacturers, senior living centers, dental offices, entertainment centers, and educational institutions.
The company says #OpenWeStand is for everyone who “supports small businesses and their resiliency.”
“This is everything that Digital Air Strike stands for,” the company said.
Digital Air Strike co-founder and chief executive officer Alexi Venneri said business owners should re-evaluate their tools and processes while embracing new ways of doing business during the current challenging times.
“There will never be a time like this in our shared history when the entire world slows down enough to allow each business owner or manager a chance to learn new ways to engage consumers and take advantage of so many free tools, technology and free trainings,” Venneri said in a news release.
Venneri continued, “When the dust settles, retailers that have learned to adapt will come out of the slowdown much faster and be more efficient. Consumers will ultimately win and appreciate retailers that are doing business in a new way.”
