By Dean Schwartz (SWAG Master): COVID-19 has flipped the world on it’s head. No matter the industry, no matter the country, we’re all feeling the impact of this devastating disease in one way or another.
So, how will your business respond in this “new” world? Luckily, SOBO has a few ideas. Below we’ll discuss some of the potential pain areas that may arise within your company, as well as a list of the ways you can help your company remain productive and sustain growth during these crazy times.
Top 10 Ways SOBO Can Help Your Company Respond to the COVID-19 Outbreak
1. Employees working from home – Send them kits as they adjust to their new work environments and to keep morale high.
2. Set up an incentives program – Engage those customers that support your business or gamify your employees workload by rewarding for accomplishing goals, making sales, figuring out ways to reduce costs, etc. SOBO can implement the program and even help you create a unique site for your participants to track their progress or redeem for a reward.
3. Cancelled trade show – If you’re the trade show organizer, reach out to sponsor s/exhibitors and offer to send direct mail gifts, on their behalf, to everyone that would have attended the show. SOBO offers a trade show in a box program that takes care of everything.
4. Sponsored events cancelled – You may not be able to meet with them in person, but you can still send fun mailers out to everyone that was scheduled to attend and reward them for going online or for purchasing.
5. No more promoters to hand out SWAG – Use social media to build your database by giving away aspirational prizes.
