What is happening right now?

There’s a lot of fear around right now and rightly so.  The coronavirus has changed the world and the world of business. It is well known that the fear of change is one of the most common fears!

I also think it will change the way we do business in the future, with less travel, more online meetings, decreased need for office space, with more people continuing to work from home, etc.

Right now several things are happening in business:

  • Online sales are increasing massively
  • Use of social media is skyrocketing
  • Use of the internet has increased hugely
  • Sales of online advertising have decreased (halved in some cases)
  • Less people are advertising online

The fact that more people are buying and less are advertising and the cost has halved might be an opportunity right now.  Don’t get me wrong – I am not saying we should take advantage of this terrible situation, but neither should we sit back, do no marketing and watch our businesses fade and die.

So I believe NOW is a good time to market your business

Not because you are going to get thousands of sales, but because:

  1. You may get some sales and that might be the difference between success and failure of your business
  2. Your competitors aren’t
  3. Advertising is a lot cheaper than it was just a few weeks ago
  4. When all this is over you don’t want to be starting again from a place of obscurity.  Where no one has heard for you.  You want to be ahead of your competition

So, if you need help because:

  1. You need a new website
  2. You want help with your social media, or you want to out source it to us
  3. You want to outsource and of your marketing needs
  4. You don’t understand digital online marketing and you want someone to do it for you
  5. You understand digital marketing, but you don’t have the time right now
  6. Or, you feel uncertain about what you should be doing right now and you just want some advice
