Business During COVID-19: Why Digital Marketing is so Important Right Now

Due to recent world events, countless people in the Valley are staying at home to keep safe, as they should be. For many business owners, though, this period has been one that’s tough, to say the least. With many people avoiding crowds and in-person shopping, small- and medium-sized businesses are taking a hit, especially if they lack a web presence.

If you’re one of these business owners, then the first thing you should do is find out how we can help you. Secondly, you should read on below to find out why digital marketing is so important in the time of COVID-19. Check it out!

Keep in Touch with Customers on Social Media

Although plenty of businesses are open for walk-ins, some have opted to remain closed while others offer services like curbside pick-up. Despite this, many people are simply not shopping out of care for their safety. If you have a Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram account where you engage with customers, then good for you!

Now is a better time than ever to take advantage of social media marketing. Many people are stuck at home and spend a lot of time on social media. Why not share your offers and deals to catch some attention? And always communicate with customers to let them know that you’re still in business.

Make Sure You’re Found Online

With so many sticking to their homes to wait out the pandemic, guess what they’re doing most to pass the time? You guessed it; being online! Going off of what we said earlier about many switching to online shopping, be sure that your business can be found. This is done through a variety of ways that each fall within digital marketing:

  • Web development to create or update an existing site.
  • Search engine optimization (SEO) to help customers find you through certain keyword searches.
  • Social media marketing, which we highlighted earlier, to easily engage with customers online.

These are only a few methods we use to help your company set up its digital footprint, and we encourage you to do business with us to build your online brand!

Keep Your Campaign Going When Things Go Back to Normal

If and when things go back to normal, you might want to discontinue your digital marketing campaign since you did so well without one before the pandemic, right? Wrong! Digital marketing is an ever-growing industry that changes and adapts to what happens both in the online and real world. When people go back to shopping and living their normal lives, you’ll still be reaping the benefits through digital marketing. COVID-19 changed the game for sure on how to successfully implement these campaigns, and the industry will still be flourishing when the dust settles, so keep your campaign going!
