Like most of you, we've been reading the news about the spread of Coronavirus and have received a number of emails from services and companies we work with. It is an uncertain and trying time for our nation’s economy which will likely impact your business or the one next door to some degree. As a reminder, we’re all in this together.
As a remote team, we still feel empowered to support our partners and clients who are not accustomed to the daily work from home grind. Below are our helpful tips for adjusting from an office to home environment for business while some are experiencing isolation or social distancing.
What Does COVID-19 Mean for marketing?
It means there’s an opportunity to grow and invest while gaps begin to form in the market. This is a chance to strengthen your offer knowing that when this passes (and it will), there will be an opportunity to advance in the market because larger competitors are likely reducing their marketing dollars by quite a bit right now. Moral of the story, don’t think of this as a detriment to your marketing plan, think of it as a new opportunity to refocus and position yourself.
There are as many opinions about how to handle this as there are people in the world. No one has a playbook here so let's continue to stand together, supporting the health and well being of our teammates, customers, partners, vendors, etc. and do our best to be part of the overall solution and not part of the problem.
51Blocks is still fully operating to support clients and partners as we wade through this unknown territory together. Supporting each other in a positive, uplifting manner is the path through this and to our continued success.
