With a second wave of Covid-19 happening, many small businesses are keeping their stores closed, causing an increase online shopping and package deliveries.
Legacy Brokering continues to strive on operating as an essential service to small shipping businesses. To help keep your business moving during these uncertain times, we had to put together a strategy of survival kit to help your shipping orders and communication flow smoothly and continuously during the pandemic.
Do not Panic
Many business owners, especially those who may have just started their business, have not experienced this kind of chaos. If you have been in the business industry for a long time, remember the Great Recession that took place in 2008? Now more so than ever is the time to reevaluate what you will be doing, how it will be done, and where you can improve to get through these hard times. Start by putting strategies into place, building community and customer loyalty, and embrace the tools that are available to you.
Reassure Your Customers
Emailing your customers builds loyalty and can encourage them to share the support in hope to help support local small businesses. Creating social media content helps you engage with your community to encourage them in their struggles.
Another great approach that small businesses begin to do is reassuring customers to purchase gift cards or pre-purchased products and services. This way small businesses are still getting revenue coming in and customers still eventually get a benefit of redeeming the order once this pandemic is under control.
Connect with Other Small Business
During times like these, it may be worth to find an opportunity to partner with another business for each other’s success. It may just turn into a long-term venture that is fruitful for both.
