A digital-first marketing strategy is everything right now
As everyone is well aware 2020 has made every business evaluate, pivot and make changes in this unprecedented time.
You may be receiving Job Keeper to help to pay staff temporarily or you may not have qualified for Job Keeper and only have the additional cash from the small business stimulus.
Regardless of any additional help that your business has received, if you haven’t already, you should be urgently making changes to how you do business. Perhaps you are even evaluating if you can stay in business long term.
Do you have the type of business that relied heavily on in-person events, trade shows and networking events to gain clients?
Have you had all your eggs in this basket while largely ignoring digital marketing?
No business in any climate can take the risk of putting all their eggs into one marketing basket or one type of marketing basket and just hope for the best. If you are a business that relied on trade shows for the bulk of your sales to keep your business afloat for the year – 2020 and beyond has changed this drastically.
What are you going to invest your time and money into moving forward?
