Your employees have been through a lot this year and so have you as a business owner, even though we are not even halfway through the year yet. While it is easy to watch the news the entire day and focus on all of the sadness and chaos that is going on in the world with the novel coronavirus claiming hundreds of lives daily, it may be better to try and focus on the things that you do have some control over, seeing opportunities in the chaos.
Use This Time to Strengthen Your Connections
Now is also the time when you want to strengthen the business connections you have, to grow your customer base, and to go all-in on your vision. Instead of picturing ways in which our society can be affected negatively in the upcoming months, focus on things that you can do to help your business not only survive, but grow.
Be Creative in Your Approach to Business Growth
You want to be as creative as you possibly can when it comes to how you grow your business. When your budget is limited but you still want to make an impact and reach a lot of people, it forces you to think creatively. Be bold. Take chances. Do things that will help you stand out. Give them a gift they will talk about and tell their friends about.
Give People Something Small to Be Excited About
If there is one thing that most people love, it is getting free stuff – whether it is promotional pens, water bottles, or high-value items like Barron bags, gifts, or apparel. How many people do you know who mainly rely on promotional pens when they are writing? If you give out a lot of promotional pens, for example, and people use them to write wherever they go, then it can do wonders in terms of boosting brand awareness. How many people “steal” pens? People often use someone else’s pen and then walk away with it, only to forget whose pen it was later on.
Many people like free promotional handouts, such as Barron bags, gifts, and apparel. Do not just give them a pen – give them their new favourite pen. Make a statement. Give them the best when it comes to gifts and choose Barron. Barron bags and apparel are always worth getting excited about.
Reach Out to Important Connections
Whether to friends, family, or business acquaintances, it is important to reach out to people in times when a lot of people are stressed out. You can check in with people you work with and have worked with to hear how they are doing. You can even write letters to people you care about and/or wish to thank for something they have done for you.
Do not just say thank you to someone who has positively impacted your life and business via email. Send them a gift! One they will love. Sending a gift is one of the best ways to stand out as a company, especially if you pair it with a handwritten thank you note. It will make a bigger impact on the person you are saying thank you to.
Give Gifts to People That They Want
If you are going to opt to send out corporate gifts, then you have to send the right gifts to have the biggest impact. If you give a promotional gift that is not something that the person you are giving it to likes or wants, it could send the message that you are not compatible in business and sabotage any future deals.
Do your research on the people who you want to give promotional gifts to and give them something that they would like. Your best bet is to start by looking at the Barron gifts, bags, and apparel we have available.
