Whilst it’s clear that we’re all going to be feeling the impact of Coronavirus on the way we live and work for a while to come, that doesn’t mean your business has to wait patiently. Instead, adapting to the so-called ‘new normal’ – be it by launching an online delivery service, holding digital events, doing more in the way of mail-out campaigns and so on – is a great opportunity for your brand to demonstrate how receptive and flexible it can be, in even the most challenging of circumstances.
Similarly, whilst face-to-face contact with in-store customers might not be on the cards for a while, that’s not to say there are no other ways to reach them. Rather, planning direct mail campaigns and tapping into the new range of wants and needs people have is a great way to show that your business is always there for them.
And let’s not forget about your staff! Whether they’re working from home or you’re looking for ways to ensure your workplace is as COVID-secure as possible, reminding your colleagues that you appreciate their support and hard work during a challenge period is crucial, as is demonstrating that you have their safety and wellbeing at heart. From introducing social distancing measures to providing your colleagues with their own name-printed items to avoid the potential for contamination, there are all sorts of ways you can go about doing it – and we’re here to help.
The Total Merchandise team has been busy creating a wide range of new product categories throughout the year, with items to match the needs, wants and concerns of your business, customers and colleagues.
