In case you missed it, Google Optimize have released a new feature for you to quickly update your website to inform your audience of any changes to your business operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Check out the banner at the top of our site as an example.
Quickly add a message about your opening hours, remote working situation or alternative contact details within an informational banner at the top of your website.
You can even set an end-date for this banner, so you don’t need to set a reminder to remove it once your business operations return to normal.
