About the Episode:

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit many small businesses hard. While unable to sell their products and services, many businesses stopped marketing altogether. But as Christine says, “If it’s time to eat, it’s time to market.”

Knowing how to utilize online marketing, especially during a pandemic, can be challenging. That’s why creativity is necessary.

The beauty in online marketing is that it allows you to reach a wider audience than traditional marketing allows. It also allows you to stay in front of others, even when they can’t visit your business in person. And when they are finally able to visit in person again, they’ll remember you over your competition because you didn’t let them forget you.

One thing to keep in mind while marketing online is you need to leverage the human connection. People don’t want to be sold to. So instead of asking them to buy from you, tell them more about what you’re selling. Provide value, show them behind the scenes, and make a human connection.

Listen to this episode to hear how other businesses have gotten creative during the pandemic.
