Many businesses took a hit last year, in 2020, when Covid-19 spread both germs and lock-downs over the globe. They were forced to close their doors, losing customers and revenue. But there is a bright and shining hope for business to make a comeback in 2021! We want to share a few success stories with you!  

Home Grid Energy

How Small Businesses have made a Comeback in 2021

Home Grid Energy installs battery systems in homes that are chargeable by solar. This battery not only sources lights and fridges but can power all home energy.

 When Home Grid Energy began marketing and sales efforts in November 2020, they faced difficulty closing deals. They contacted solar companies, but it was challenging to build trust when there was no face-to-face contact. This slowed their potential for growth.

 As lockdowns have ended in 2021, Home Grid Energy is able to visit solar companies in person and shake hands with them. This has made a night and day difference. Seven, the Marketing Director at Home Gird Energy explains that, “Putting a face to our company makes other more eager to believe that it is legitimate.” They are picking up the pace for growth as things are opening back up. They plan to open up Hawaii, Texas, and California markets this year! This growth is also made possible due to the cheaper costs for housing and travel. Business travel is more affordable which makes their budget go further.

 Home Grid Energy capitalized on an issue that arose from the pandemic. Energy consumption definitely went up in 2020, and is still on that rise as families continue to work and attend school from home. Additionally, the recent calamities, such as the power crisis in Texas, generated motivation to become more self-reliant this year. Families are more interested in sustainability through solar battery energy in their homes. 

Home Grid Energy is making their comeback this year as they expand their markets and provide a solution to the current energy issues!

Set Fire Creative


How Small Businesses have made a Comeback in 2021

In 2020, when various businesses had to lock down and say goodbye to customers, they also had to say goodbye to the digital marketing team here at Set Fire Creative. McCain, our VP of Client Services, explains that “It is interesting being a digital marketing company that helps other companies grow, because when the pandemic hit and all these companies and industries were affected, that in turn affected [Set Fire Creative].”

In March, there was one specific day when Set Fire Creative received a plethora of calls from clients telling us that they had to shut down and needed to pause their contract. On the other hand, ecommerce clients turned to Set Fire Creative for guidance. Our team had predicted that people would be shopping online more than ever before— and we were right! Our ecommerce clients thrived during the pandemic and our ma & pop clients saw the need to go digital. 

Because of this, Set Fire Creative launched a new product at the beginning of 2021. Our Business Validation Process helps new companies establish their key audience and assess public interest in buying the proposed product. The pandemic has taught both Set Fire Creative and our clients that successful businesses take time to develop and require research to back up business decisions. 

Set Fire Creative had an outward focus during the pandemic. We have done our best to help other businesses stay alive through partnerships, outreach, and our marketing services. That kind of mindset comes back around— the more you give, the more you receive. Set Fire Creative continues to add value to their services to help other businesses grow. Along with our new Business Validation process, Set Fire Creative is making its 2021 comeback while helping others do the same.

If your business is ready to make a comeback in 2021, be sure to contact Set Fire Creative today!
