If you've temporarily closed shop due to the coronavirus, you're probably missing out on leads. Make sure these potential customers are ready and waiting by incentivizing visitors to sign up for a notification when you reopen.
Just because you've paused temporarily doesn't mean people have stopped needing a product like yours. Use a prominent call to action like a banner to clearly state that you'll be reopening soon and direct visitors to a field where they can enter their email addresses to get notified. Then sweeten the pot by offering a nice discount on their future purchase for doing so. Collin Davis (@collins88) of Blue Digits has a client in the travel space who added a lead capture like this and now 2% of visitors who would have otherwise bounced are becoming leads for later. Don't add their emails to your standard mailing list, though — keep the barrier to entry low by making it clear that you'll only contact them when you open back up.
