Pivot to Survive & Thrive
For local businesses, 2020 has been a series of unprecedented challenges. Across the nation, customer favorite businesses that were previously successful have closed their doors for good. But many are still open and even some are doing well. Local regulations seem to change almost daily: closed vs. open, online only, takeout/curbside but no inside, inside but 50% or 25% capacity, complicated contact tracing requirements, employee and customer safety concerns, and more. It was hard enough to run a local business during ‘normal times’, but now what is the business owner to do? Pivot!
It’s Connection, Not Location
This is your ‘lightbulb’ moment. Once, having a prime location, was key for local business success. But now having a ‘connection’ with your customers is far more important than your ‘location’. You must be able to email or text them directly about your special offers, safety efforts, ways to find you, order and more.
The Tactics Are Not New
The tactics and systems to create a connection with customers are proven. Many of them are used by large companies, such as national retailers and restuarant chains. Many local business owners either were too busy to implement them or thought the cost of these innovative tactics were too expensive. Technology advances have made these tactics very affordable and the current crisis has made them imperative.
The Time To Pivot Is Now!
Today, enhancing your online presence is more important than ever. This will continue to be the case once we get to a new ‘normal’. The pivot steps you take now to stay engaged with your customers will not only help you now but will position your business to thrive going forward.
