We are currently living in challenging times with many brands and businesses struggling to negotiate a future whilst living under the tyranny of Covid 19. As day-by-day we see seismic shifts in consumer behaviour and brand perception as this global pandemic dictates the terms, it has never been more important to maintain a level of adaptability, awareness and lateral thinking when it comes to maintaining a successful, burgeoning brand. It is more important than ever to consider your branding strategy and brand health:
- How healthy is your brand?
- How do consumers see you now?
- Have you made the necessary adjustments for those consumer changes and are you still communicating effectively with your core customer base?
These are vital questions because it may seem superficially that there is no economic growth or healthy business, but as quickly as the pandemic swept it, it will eventually recede. It is important to maintain positivity and look forward, be prepared for the more positive developments ahead.
Now is the perfect opportunity to take stock and consider your brand’s position of where it is now and where it will be post pandemic. What face will you present to the world? It is also vital to look deeper into consumer behaviour and understand changes, which may be here for quite some time. How will this affect your strategies and how will you now market your product or service? Are you high or low in customer perception and wherever you are placed, how do you maintain a grip on that position or fight to regain a better, stronger position?
Look at the world through different eyes. This does not have to be a period of stagnation and should instead be time spent using creativity to invest in a strategy to invigorate or even take advantage of a superior positioning in the market. It could even signify new opportunities for you, as gaps in the market may open up.
