Ever since the pandemic hit the world, there has been a major impact on the economy worldwide. While grocery stores have been left with empty shelves while restaurants are like ghost towns.
In such a scenario, your first instinct would probably be to cut on costs where possible, but your marketing budget should not be one to immediately be put on hold. The smartest companies in the landscape right now will be taking the lemons of uncertainty, panic, and global disruption and turning them into lemonade.
People will be online now and shopping a lot more than they normally would. So here are some tips for what you should consider doing at the moment, which will not only help you generate income in the short term, but also make your business more resilient in the long term.
Balancing present campaigns and always-on activities
In this time of the pandemic, you should have two types of activities happening on your Social Media. One, very specific to the cause, and the other one thinking about the long term; an ongoing activity that continues to retain a brand’s presence in the minds of people.
Review your STP
Although this one might not necessarily relate to Digital Marketing, Digital Media plays a major role in segmentation, targeting, and positioning for a brand. This might be a good time to evaluate these 3 core elements of marketing.
Improve your digital value
A website needs to communicate the core brand offering and brand personality. It should give a great opportunity to add value to the customers and so develop a preference towards their brand and support purchase intent. This may also include using a new tone of voice to communicate with your customers digitally.
Create or extend your online ad campaigns
If you already have an ongoing campaign, review and analyze it. Check google analytics to understand which campaigns are running well and would still be relevant and which ones should be called off. If possible, also create new ones.
Create video content
There is nothing more interactive and communicative as video content. Period. Videos are a very effective way to develop brand awareness and to make people discover your products. Statistics say that video content is proven to work better than picture content.
Pay per click advertisement
At this time, most of the people are at home in front of their screens, possibly looking anything relevant that comes in front of their eyes. So this is a great time to use PPC to your business’s advantage since it is also one of the most cost-effective ways.
SEO and online reviews
Use local SEO strategies to increase your chances of appearing in “near me” and thus increasing chances of people turning up to you first. Another great way is to get positive reviews on google for your brand. Google reviews are proven to shape the customer’s decisions to opt for your brand since they are most open and flexible.
