COVID-19 has had a major impact on small businesses, especially those within the tourism sector and across Marquette County. Small businesses are needing to adapt quickly to social-distancing requirements through digital marketing strategies to ensure they can still reach customers. Tourism-linked businesses are also finding ways to successfully reach travelers safely as the summer travel season continues with innovative new product offerings, messaging, and the use of digital technology.
