Covid Impact on Global Digital Marketing Agency Service Market 2021How the coronavirus is driving new changes in digital marketing 

The coronavirus lockdown has blocked many business processes, from manufacturing, supply chain, logistics and marketing.

Some companies have temporarily closed or stopped their digital marketing activities, citing the health problems of their employees. If you are on that side, what you will end up with is a drastic decrease in online traffic, sales, engagement, conversations, and lower search rankings.

Digital marketing isn’t a quick fix to gain momentum. It doesn’t give you visibility overnight. If you’re using digital marketing ūüíĽ techniques like search engine optimization (SEO) or social media marketing (SMM), I think you already know that their implementations take three to four months to pay off.

So, if you choose to stop working on digital marketing, you would see a severe downfall after a quarter or so.

The solution

This is a difficult time for all of us. You, as an employer, will need to keep your workers motivated to ensure that work is not delayed or interrupted. Asking to work from home will be great support for your employees, as well as your digital marketing.

But the bigger question here is: What strategies should digital marketers follow?

Consumer behavior has changed dramatically. Today we all see a different consumer. As previously mentioned, markets are closed, basic necessities are out of stock or are being sold at rates above 30% to 50%, buyers and their families are staying at home, some of whom have lost their jobs and have sources of limited income.

This change in behavior has also changed the market scenarios. We have a completely different market to serve.

That said, we’re going to need a different approach to marketing.

Develop a short-term strategy and see how the market conditions behave

A tip for digital marketing is: keep it flexible. If there are any changes to your digital marketing strategy, you can adapt to any situation.

Which strategy fits your business and which doesn’t; it can only be measured once it is implemented. Your digital marketing strategy needs to be flexible enough to get out of any situation.

Returning to the current situation of the crown, it will be necessary to develop a different short-term strategy to be implemented during the lockout. You can start with:

  • Understand¬†the audience
  • Assess whether your product is in demand
  • Evaluate the amount of¬†website¬†traffic and its source
  • Notice how¬†the user behavior¬†on your website

Prepare a marketing strategy around these factors. If your product is in demand, you can drive a lot of traffic through local distributions.

More focus on pay-per-click (PPC)

Believe it or not, cost-per-click (CPC) ūüď≤ is proving more profitable for marketers during the crown lock. Because the product offering is limited, there are fewer ads on major marketing channels, including Google Ads, Twitter Ads, and Facebook Ads.

Traffic and searches are high, but the competition and with that, the cost of paid ads has taken a downward trend. It could be a great opportunity for your brand to gain exposure and increase traffic and sales.

You can combine SEO, SMO and PPC in your digital marketing strategies. Here’s how to get started with your click:

  • Identify your ad¬†and campaign¬†objectives
  • Discover the best¬†marketing channel
  • Determine your funnel
  • Observe the¬†results and refine your¬†implementation

Organize webinars and webcast

Webinars and webcasts have become a great marketing tool in recent times.

In fact, it’s the most attractive type of content today. Statistics show that over 80% of users prefer to watch brand videos instead of reading their blogs or scanning their social network text updates.

You can take this opportunity to interact with your audience and get new signups and sales eventually.

If your physical events, such as a product launch or marketing seminar, have been canceled or postponed, through which you intended to gain traction, you could still go that route.

Prepare a content strategy, pick the right platform and bring the teams together and you’re ready for your webinar or webcasting.

Quick tips to help you get started with your webinar and live streaming marketing:

  • Always do a live-run test beforehand
  • Use¬†the questions asked for your blog topic
  • Promote the¬†event across social networks in advance
  • And most importantly, plan the content and context of your¬†webinar¬†well

Bottom line

When traffic and sales go down, many marketers forget about their customers. What they focus on are sales, sales and sales.ūüďą

But who gives you the sales? Your customers, of course. During the coronavirus lockdown, people don’t buy much.

If you forget them, you will lose them. And getting new customers after closing is going to be tricky business. Therefore, the best practice is to never forget them.

You can stay in touch with them on social media. Just like a friendly reminder: social media is a marketing channel, but that doesn’t mean you should always use it to market your brand. Rather, use it to empathize with your followers, hear their stories and tell them yours, and respond to their comments and mentions.

Many brands use social media to show how they are contributing to the well-being of communities during the crown crisis. If you’re also doing social work, social media is the place to tell everyone. It will help re-establish yourself as a responsible brand, which would undoubtedly be one of the best for your marketing success.

Hopefully, the Coronavirus ūü¶† passes soon and it has minimal impact on lives. For the time being, try not to socialize with others too much or go into crowded places.
