How can you prepare your small business during the Coronavirus?
I know I'm not the only business owner rethinking our strategies and adjusting a few things in our marketing plans for spring.
Below are 7 ways various small businesses are able to adjust their marketing plans during the Coronavirus to ensure a secure future:
Gyms/ Owners/Trainers/Music Teachers: Turn your sessions into online meetings using Zoom, create an at-home method/training for your students to follow, you can text daily workouts & meal plans, etc.
Restaurant Owners: You can match gift card sales, for example...if a customer buys a gift card for $40, you will match them another $40. You can also add a doorstep delivery.
Retailers: Add products to your website so people can shop from home, and/or add a doorstep delivery.
eCommerce: You can have a sale for buy one, get any other item for free.
Service Providers: If someone signs a contract, and pays their deposit this week—can you offer a steep discount as an incentive?
Travel: Offer steep discounts for summer/fall if people book now.
Showrooms: Can customers “FaceTime” your store to see your products without coming in?
What industry are you in? Has your business been affected?
