How does your workday look different compared to a few weeks ago? Whether it’s dogs barking during a call, sweats becoming your go-to work attire, creating new social media profiles to stay in touch, or being glued to your laptop more than ever before, work looks very different for a lot of us..
In Part 2 of our Work From Home series, we’re sharing a few more simple ideas to stay on track..
Take some time to research new channels, organizations, and businesses to reach out to, now or later on in the year. Keep track of your findings in a spreadsheet, documenting things like name, contact information, potential needs, and possible solutions you could provide. Reach out or schedule emails a few weeks in advance.
Brainstorm new marketing ideas to experiment with over the next few months. Consider creating a referral rewards program to encourage customers to send business your way, launch a social media campaign around a happy customer, or develop how-to guides and other helpful resources customers can refer to down the road.
Preparing for new opportunities can include reconnecting with old opportunities. Take this time to reach out to former clients or prospects to check in and see what kind of support you can offer during this difficult time.
Revisiting the basics of selling, listening to clients, product research, and building online stores are a great refresher with long-term benefits.
