The silver lining
As they say, every cloud has a silver lining. Even a cloud as dark as COVID seems to have an upside. Consumers and customers have long been using online resources to decide what products and services they consume. So has the business world. The convenience of researching purchasing decisions without leaving your desk or home has driven this trend. So has the empowerment of making informed decisions without pushy salespeople. COVID 19 has allowed businesses to catch up with consumer expectations.
Scaling your digital presence
Remote work has probably motivated you to update your business software and moved key business functions into the cloud. You may have even started managing all of your business transactions online, with e-commerce and customer portals. Now is the time to complete this digital transformation by catching up with competitors and scaling your digital presence and starting with bringing your website more in line with customer expectations, then continuing with a consistent social presence, email campaigns and digital marketing.
A single digital touchpoint is no longer enough to build your business. You need to know where your customers are making their purchasing decisions.
Keeping up with…. well, everyone
