It only takes a few minutes to put a simple plan in place so your business is covered if something happens.
To get your back up plan started, start by making sure someone knows your passwords and can access your online accounts.
I recently read in the Etsy forums about someone who had paid for an item and waited almost 6 weeks with no contact from the shop, and when they checked the shop again it had disappeared. They don't know what happened or if or how they were going to get there money back.
If something happens in your life and you are unable to tend to your online business it is important that your customers don't feel like you abandoned them.
When you are ready to come back and run your business again, you want your customers to still do business with you.
A few other things to consider creating a back up plan for:
• If your computer crashes
• Something happens with your home or car
• If you or someone in your family were sick for several days or weeks
Making a plan now and having everything in place, will give your peace of mind.
