Why Do Brands Need to Change the Promotional Strategies After Lockdown Has Been Lifted
COVID-19 has struck the world economy unlike any other event in the past. Predictions are being made about the global recession that could be more severe than the ‘Great Depression of the 1930s.
Post Lockdown Scenario
Businesses are struggling to compete as the lockdown restrictions imposed to contain the spread of the virus are severely impacting them. The demand is low now and sales have nose-dived. The existing promotional strategies are not working, and brands must change their strategies post lockdown to gain customers.
Brands will face a different world in the post lockdown scenario. Though the spread of the virus may not be abated, governments are likely to lift restrictions to get the economy running. People will be cautious venturing out of their homes. Retail stores, malls, entertainment centers, and other crowded commercial spaces will witness low footfalls. In such a scenario, brands cannot promote themselves on existing strategies. New, bold, and innovative strategies will be the need of the hour.
Building and executing such new strategies in a short time is a daunting task for any brand. It is here International Communications services-Dubai (ICS-Dubai) comes into play.
