These are crazy times, for sure. I couldn’t think of anything in recent history that was to this scale and so global. Yes, we’ve had hurricanes and other disasters but not much that has reached every part of the country, nevermind the world. Here are some tips for your content over the next few weeks to be sure you are connecting with your audience on a personal level.
Be Sure That Your Previously Scheduled Content is Sensitive
As a content creator, I encourage you to look at what you have scheduled to post this upcoming week or two and be sure that it’s still relevant and sensitive. If you are advertising an event or service, is that still happening? Be sure to take those posts out of the scheduling queue if “social distancing” will negatively affect your in-person business over the next few weeks while things shake out.
How Can You Serve Your Customers in the Next Few Weeks?
Can you offer services remotely? Can you offer a discount for those who need it? Re-evaluate your products and services and see how you can modify to help the community over the next few weeks, then tweak your messaging to reflect that.
Share How You Are Handling COVID-19
Right now, everyone is glued to the news and social media. We are all interested in how this issue is affecting our neighbors, communities, and local businesses. This is a great time to share how you are handling the current state of affairs. Whether it’s sanitizing your brick-and-mortar business, or changing your products and services to bring them “online” instead of in-person, your customers will want to know.
We’re all in this together. It’s new and unprecedented, and we’re all handling this as it changes day by day. It’s okay to be real with your audience - let them see what you’re going through. Because we’re all going through it together, your audience wants that connection. People love behind the scenes! Take photos or share your thoughts on how you can modify your business in a positive way.
Share Some Inspiration
This is a great time for us to pull through and look ahead with positive thoughts. It’s inspiring to see how the community is coming together for the greater good. If you’ve got something positive to share about these current times or something for people to look forward to, post it! We could all use as many uplifting thoughts as we can get.
