In these challenging times, marketing can often be the last item on the to-do list. If you stop altogether however, you may find that people won’t remember you once things start to return to normal. To help you future-proof your business, we’ve put together a list of 5 marketing ideas that you can work on now.

5 Marketing Ideas to Help You Future Proof Your Business 

Loyalty Programs for Existing Customers

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, and now is the time to be focusing on strengthening the bonds between you and your existing customers. Implementing a loyalty program is a great way to say thank you to your customers for their loyalty. Use a rewards program to encourage customers to reconnect if they’ve recently changed to your competition.

Consider New Markets

During a down-turn, some industries are hit harder than others. If your regular customers are likely to be hit hard, now is the time to diversify your customer base by reaching out to new audiences. Consider how your products might be beneficial to people in other industries. Need to develop an aquisition program? Kwik Kopy can help!

Think Local Marketing Ideas

When times get tough, communities tend to focus inward, so it’s a good idea to start thinking with a more local area marketing mindset. Get active in the community, support local charities and businesses. Start connecting with the people nearest to you so that when things get tough they know who you are.

Step Up Your Social Media Marketing

Social media marketing is always a good idea, but particularly when money is tight because it can be a very low investment. Get some logos and digital banners professionally designed and start building up your followers. That way, when things start picking up, you’ve got the platforms all set up and the customer base all ready to receive your message.

Show Reliability

In times of economic uncertainty, people tend to value stability. Your customers want to know they can rely on you and your business. That’s why we recommend implementing a regular marketing campaign. Whether it be a monthly direct mail campaign or a weekly email newsletter, the reliability of your campaigns will instill a sense of stability. When the ground feels a little shaky, they’ll remember you.

In lean times many businesses make the mistake of cutting back on the marketing budget or even cutting it out entirely, and often it’s their downfall. If possible, now is the time to step up your marketing efforts. Not sure where to start? Contact your local Kwik Kopy Centre today to find out how we can help.
