Consumers who are changing their habits
Consumer habits have been forcibly changed and the online channel has quickly become the most impactful lever because it is the most accessible in these circumstances.

It’s also important to make sure that all of your products are available online and up to date, and that you have as much positive feedback as possible. If you don’t have an e-commerce site, now is the time to register on Marketplaces like Amazon, etc. or to create your own website to give visibility to your products online and attract more prospects.
Adapt your social media strategy
It is essential that you can manage your digital strategy by continuing to be present on social networks even during this period of Coronavirus. Review your entire communication strategy to adapt it to this health crisis. During this period, it is not enough to communicate for nothing. You have to adapt your speech, limit your speaking. Your communication must be useful for your customers, thoughtful and limited so that it comes closer to the expectations of your target, and that it is in line with their daily lives.
Work on your SEO, while waiting for business to resume
People spend a lot of time online and this can be seen in particular through Internet searches. This is a great opportunity to focus your efforts on developing your brand image by engaging with consumers and providing them with quality content, optimized for your website’s SEO.

There is no perfect communication strategy in times of crisis, and this coronavirus crisis is one of them. In this complicated period, the key word is to keep in touch with your partners and especially to prepare for the aftermath by fine-tuning everything you don’t have time to do when your business is running at full speed.
