6 Key Things Marketers Need to do During COVID-19 Pandemic – Part 3 of a 6 Part Series

Now that you’ve taken a deep dive into your target audience's buying behaviors, you’re on track to keeping abreast of how your customers redefine value in this climate. Here’s Rule #3 of Pandemic Marketing.

Pandemic Marketing Rule #3: Customers First

The good ol’ 80/20 Rule "80% of your sales come from 20% of your customers” is so important during this time. Hang onto those customers for dear life, they will be your largest asset during this time. You cannot effectively retain their business and loyalty if you aren’t communicating with them. And let’s face it – every organization in the country is sending emails on how they are handling COVID19 including your florist so let’s not pretend that email is going to cut the mustard. Focus the bulk of your marketing efforts on your existing clients. Send letters through the mail. Pick up the phone and call. Send text messages. Reach out through Facebook messenger and LinkedIn mail.
