COVID-19 hasn’t made creating social media content for businesses any easier. Because it’s hard to come up with and produce content while we are all dealing with the ramifications and new rules in place due to the pandemic, Empty Desk Solutions has decided to share 30 content ideas that are easily do-able for any business, despite the current situation.
