Businesses and startups alike around the world are facing a similar problem. All must have to rethink how they work and meet, as well as outreach to their customers.

For many, virtual events were one of the most effective and impactful ways to engage directly with both potential clients and current customers. During these unprecedented times, face-to-face events are not possible so many are turning towards a digital solution. For some, this will be their first time navigating various tools to deliver a virtual event and strategy.

To help your startup make this transition as painless as possible, the Zendesk for Startups team compiled a how-to guide to building your upcoming virtual event, from planning to execution.

We hope this framework will come in handy for you and your teams as you do your part to keep moving forward, staying together with social distancing, safe and healthy.

If you are looking for additional guidance, our recent Zendesk Ask Me Anything discussion features Zendesk leaders sharing how Zendesk has prepared for the pandemic, and how our company has quickly mobilized our employees to be remote. In another recent blog post, we also discussed how COVID-19 is impacting customer experience, and what we can do to help each other during these difficult times.
