I’m sure you are tired of hearing the words unprecedented times? But it's true.
COVID-19 has forced businesses to close, pivot and think on their feet. Arguably, most of us have never seen something of this scale before, which means we had to think fast and re-align marketing and brand strategies to navigate through this pandemic and the good news is - IT’S WORKING!
We know it’s been tough but as an experienced team of marketers and digital experts, we’re here to help you get through this. We are fortunate to be all working from our office (in separate rooms, practicing social distancing) because it’s hard to be creative on your own at home.
Our office hours and days remain the same, although our night light has been burning to help our clients communicate through this new chaos.
We’re ready to help your business pivot through and beyond COVID-19 so that you can survive.....and thrive.
Which demographics is your campaign directed at? How will this appeal to their needs and perspectives? All these will assist you to make informed decisions along your marketing plan pathway.
Once you have decided who you need to target, you need to understand how the target audience behaves. How do they consume media? Do they use the internet at all, or do they operate more on signage, billboards or word-of-mouth? This will help you determine which channels are most effective in your marketing process.
Sure, a post on Facebook or Instagram could be nice, but why stop there? Perhaps your marketing could take on a more auditory or even physical angle. Force yourself to think outside the box and do something truly novel and memorable.
This is the crux of the marketing process. Understanding the way social media is used and consumed, and knowing which platforms connect you best with which demographics is pivotal to the success of your campaign.
After deciding where and how you will deliver your campaign, it's time to make a campaign road map and get ready to launch the campaign. Plan out when you will distribute different parts of your advertising and how it will change between different platforms and audiences.
You launched your campaign, fantastic! But you can't stop there. At the end of the process and throughout every step of it, you need to be analysing the statistics and engagement and letting that drive the way your marketing progresses and changes.
