A day in the life of Square’s global head of marketing

The pandemic has been especially harsh for SMBs, many of which have been operating under survival mode to stay afloat. About a third of SMBs were forced to temporarily close down, according to a report released in May last year. 

Digital payments player Square, which has been successful among SMBs since its inception, has adapted to the pandemic by upping its business solutions for merchants, such as access to PPP loans, customer refunds on software fees and curbside pick up and delivery services.
