Marketing During a Pandemic:
It’s a good time to do good
Posted on: May 26, 2020        Categories:   Crisis communications  |  Marketing Insights

By now you have probably noticed that many brands are stepping up during the pandemic to provide help and relief to people in a variety of ways. Naturally really big brands are getting the lion’s share of attention for these good deeds, but the truth is thousands of smaller companies are also helping, much of which is focused on their local communities. 

Whether you’re an international, national, regional or local company, providing real help to consumers can also create the positive side effects of  building your brand’s awareness and growing brand loyalty.
