With lockdown set to be released in the coming weeks/months, how can you kickstart business after a long time out of the game? Below are 4 ways you can get ahead of your competitors and help build up business as we try and get some normality back in our day to day lives.
Keep your customers informed!
With the situation changing day by day it is important to keep your customers up to date with any changes you’ve have made as a business. From your opening hours, to your new policies, to any special offers or promotions you might start to run, it is important to keep your customers in the loop!
This can be achieved through your website, various social media platforms or through an email campaign.
Take a leap of faith!
Have you been planning on changing how things are run in your business? Do you need new processes, new marketing strategies, a new website?
Why not now? Why not get ahead of your competitors and lead the way! A fresh and effective marketing campaign can help to increase business when we all begin return to ‘business as usual’. But don’t leave it too late!
Run a promotion!
Who doesn’t love 10% off or buy one get one free? Now is the ideal time to run a promotion and offer something to your both your existing and new customers.
On average, an online shop will see peoples shopping cart value increase by up to 30% by running a 10% off promotion! It doesn’t take a genius to work out that this is some good business!
Write a Blog!
Blogs are a great way to market yourself for free. You have no limitations and you can write about anything (try and keep it related to your business). It will help people land on your website from their Google searches and an informative and relevant blog will make them want to find out more about you (this is where a good website or a nice promotion can come in handy!).
