Let’s face it, the COVID-19 pandemic has been arguably very hard on small businesses. However, this is not the time to slow down on gaining new leads and revenue streams. Many businesses have found creative ways to survive and thrive during these tough times. If we’ve learned one thing, it’s that now is the perfect opportunity to focus on transformation and repositioning your strategy.
With the current climate of the world, this is an especially important time to provide as much value as you can to your customers. When focusing on doubling down on your brand you must be as helpful as possible with your content and work to benefit those in your community.
Achieving this can be pretty simple, you want to always be in the mindset of giving. This is probably why you started your company in the first place! Whether you are providing your help, information, or expertise – there is something you can bring forth to everyone. Essentially, you are lifting the veil on your secrets and helping those with your content and services.
What is the importance of this you may ask? Giving to those around you positions yourself as a helper and will encourage people to do the same for you. Providing value is also noteworthy for boosting your brand reputation. You’ll soon be known as an expert in your field because of the insightful information you’ve provided. Your community will know you for doing the right thing without expecting anything in return.
This is really the ethos behind content marketing – you’re giving all your advice and resources online. This way when someone is looking for a thought leader in your industry, they’ll look to you for more value.
Doing things to help your community has been especially important during COVID-19. Different businesses have stepped up in many different ways. An example from one of our clients in the car wash industry has been sponsoring high schools and sports teams whose parents stop by. Looking to do something of this caliber for your company? Take a moment and think what would make sense for your business and run with it. This can really help cultivate your brand and how you’re perceived.
