3 mega-obvious ideas for businesses to create a post Covid19 strategy, but ignore at their peril
Economists around the globe are threatening us with a major depression. Shops are simply disappearing from the malls. Individuals and corporates are thinking three times before any new investment.
So what can the business owners and sales strategists do?
I was going over the notes of a webinar presented on behalf of Invest Hong Kong by Conway Inc. They encourage overseas agencies and companies to set up shop in the territory. (By the way, I can tell that despite corona et al, several more Israeli organisations have done just that in the past six months).
On slide in particular caught my eye: “3 ways to redirect marketing strategies”. And I quote:
- Go virtual…..or get left behind
- Brand building………with impactful content
- Develop partnership opportunities (+ stay alive)
Let’s be honest. After 2-3 months with corona, there is not a lot of new stuff there. Yet, when presented together and on the same page, you suddenly enter ‘wake up time’.
In fact, reflecting on how I have tried to help my clients change and pivot, this is exactly what thy have all been struggling to make happen. That is the very role of a business coach and mentor.
The take away. Maybe it is time to give up on what you see as your main poles to hold on to. They may not be so relevant or even that stable today. It is not important what others will think of you. Find that way to change, or “get left behind”.
