Communication

Virtual communication can be challenging. As a result, your customers and clients are bound to have more questions related to your business than before. Make sure you maintain a strong customer-business relationship where clients feel comfortable, amidst the uncertainty of the world around us. An easy way to do this is to have a consistent communication schedule with consistent virtual check-ins via Zoom or email. This is just one way of ensuring your clients are kept in the loop during the pandemic. 

Social media marketing

It is no longer an option to have solid digital assets behind your business, but a necessity. With this in mind, it’s important to harness this new digital adoption of consumers and focus on social media marketing. Social media now has one of the biggest influences on brand exposure, with billions of users on Instagram, FaceBook, TikTok and LinkedIn. 

The ability to leverage constant engaging posts on social media is what will help your business boost brand awareness. For example, studies say that you should optimally be posting on LinkedIn at least once a day. Having a strong content strategy with firm goals and a structured plan will help you to make sure your business is not isolated from consumers. To aid with this, you could create a content calendar. Here you could schedule your content for the week ahead to ensure that you stay on top of your posts.

Website optimization

Your website is the first thing consumers will see when they search your business online. Therefore, it’s vital that you have a website that is easy to navigate while also conveying a strong brand image. You can improve your website by adding new images, blog or news posts and any content that directly resonates with consumers needs and preferences.

Undoubtedly, COVID-19 has acted as a catalyst for change in the working world, especially with regards to digitalization. This has been a series of challenging years where we have plummeted into a new world of vulnerability. We have had to change and adapt our working lives. However, with the right agenda and outlook, businesses can use this vulnerability and uncertainty to build a prosperous digital future.
