They’ve also set up a virtual pub so members of the community can meet online on a Friday afternoon to chat and network without leaving their houses.

Co-director Jo Ciriani said: “Many of the people we speak to are feeling very unsettled and anxious about the future of their businesses.

"We’re trying to encourage people to think about how they can adapt and use this time to make the most of their online presence.”

Co-director and partner Graham Todd added: “Social media gives isolated businesses a chance to carry on. Don’t stop marketing now because what you do online now will be remembered for months to come.

"When all this is over, customers will come flooding back, so you need to get ready now.”
