It’s June of 2021. Back in March of 2020, none of us anticipated that, by now, we would still be enduring a pandemic. Thankfully, there are signs that we are seeing the tail end of this thing. With so many people in the country getting vaccinated, there is the hope that, by this time next year, this whole pandemic thing will be a somewhat distant memory.
As a business owner, you have undoubtedly endured numerous hardships over the past year and three months. Certainly, you don’t need to be reminded about how much COVID-19 has impacted your company. However, at this time, it’s likely necessary to inform you of some important steps you can take to help your business recover from the pandemic.
Create new revenue streams.
In all likelihood, one of the primary reasons your business suffered, during the pandemic, is because what it offered wasn’t considered essential. Your products and services weren’t mandatory during lockdowns so your company’s revenue stream hit a standstill. Has the experience taught you how you can expand your offerings? Instead of just selling products, can you offer experiences?
By creating new revenue streams, you’ll not only grow your bottom line but help your business to thrive during periods that would otherwise be slow. “The hallmark of a strong business is when there are multiple revenue streams and passive income,” contends Kimanzi Constable on Entrepreneur.com, “The key to growth is having a diverse customer base, allowing you to lose one or a few clients without setting you back.”
Put stronger efforts into content marketing.
In today’s world, your business practically doesn’t exist if it isn’t online. However, just having an online presence isn’t enough. In order to have a strong impact on your target audience, your social media accounts must be regularly active. As well, it’s vital to enrich your website with new content on a steady basis. It will help to generate greater traffic to your site and prove your company isn’t just reputable, but an expert source.
“You don’t increase sales by merely posting sales offers,” insists Constable, “Potential clients want to know a business understands what they’re talking about and one that delivers on its promises — your content is how you prove that. Lead generation happens when you nurture consumers through good content that adds value and solves pain points. Your content is worth the effort you put into, and it’s a form of marketing that can be repurposed into hundreds of pieces of content.”
It may first appear like flaky advice, but it’s worth taking. Don’t get too down about the fact that COVID-19 has hampered business operations for more than a year. Remember that you’re not alone in having endured hard times. Your positive thinking will help your brand recover in ways other businesses may not.
“People will want to do things they weren’t able to during quarantine like eat out, travel, purchase homes or go shopping,” GreenLotus.ca reminds us, “With that being said, it’s best to put yourself in a more positive head-space and avoid the psychological warfare that you are never going to recover from this because one thing that’s evident in history is that Humanity always wins.”
