How to Increase Sales using Digital Marketing during COVID Lockdowns

digital marketing during lockdown

Are you a fan of the football game? I am

It’s ok if you’re not a football game fan. If you’re interested to know how you can increase your sales using digital marketing during COVD lockdowns then this article is perfect for you.

I watch football like crazy. There are times that I watched the entire match on my feet standing in a sports bar. 

I have noticed something very crazy with this sport. Even at the last few minutes the opposing team who are lagging by 3 goals will try to move the ball towards their goal and defeat the opponent team.

From my experience, it will take a minimum of 40 – 60 seconds for 1 goal from the time the umpire whistles.

They will lose even if they score 2 more goals in the last 3 minutes. But, still, they try and go for a goal with full energy.

If you look at the game, in the last few minutes you will feel like they can win because all the team players will not show a sign of defeat in their gameplay.

So, why football now? 

I know you have this question.

It’s simple, business isn’t a game, it doesn’t have intervals, breaks, referees, yellow card or red card.

It’s not the last few minutes of the game. It’s an evolution. Be a part of it.

Business is a constant evolution of getting better products/services to your customers.

Now during COVID times your customer can be sad, feared or confused so you as a brand can make them feel confident by creating campaigns that touch their lives.

Why should you not stop marketing during COVID?

You shouldn’t stop marketing instead just change the marketing messages.

Make sure your brand sends a strong message that is in sync with the current situation of your customers.

I know, these types of campaigns and their results don’t reflect in your revenue books.

But ultimately if you create your tribe the tribe will pay you and you can have complete control of your company’s financial future.

Only customer happiness can create a brand and not just the product/service.

The brand Coca-Cola exists because the customers feel happy when they drink their products. Otherwise, it’s just a sugary carbonated drink.
