The economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic continues to take a toll across all industries. Unfortunately, COVID-19 will likely remain an issue that businesses will grapple with for the foreseeable future.
However, there are still ways for brands to stay relevant in this uncertain time and keep the conversation going with their clients and customers. These tips can help you continue to spread you brand message through 2020 and beyond.
Create a unique and personal connection.
Branding begins and ends with connection: connection to a purpose, connection to a product and connection to people. At the end of the day, that’s what consumers are looking for — something, or in this case, some brand they can trust. Unfortunately, in a lot of markets brands are a dime a dozen, so in order to stand out you’ve got to go big. Owning your own story never gets old and is essential when connecting with people.
Be consistent but flexible.
Consistency is normally the key to success, but what is the key to success during COVID-19? Flexibility. Every day there is new information, different challenges and a cornucopia of feelings that come with living through the coronavirus era. Staying nimble and embracing change allows your brand to meet the evolving needs of your customers and the rollercoaster ahead.
If there was ever a time to assess your brand, data and overall marketing strategy, it’s now. What’s a hit? What’s a miss? What’s new that is worth exploring. Those questions will lead to active change instead of passive or reactive movement. Just remember, your data should drive decision-making and overall change. It’s never too late to reboot and restrategize.
