Customer & Messaging: Intentional stories to communicate your business post-COVID

COVID has impacted the global economy, our business communications and our way of life. It has seen an unprecedented adoption of online behaviours, tools and transactions. What would have otherwise taken a decade to accomplish or be foreseen as almost impossible, has now been normalised, rapidly overruling the naysayers and resistance to the digital transformation of our world.

As we adjust to working from home, working with the remote toolset, schooling our kids and social isolation, the question is now being asked – what will your new business model, product, service or offer be, and what strategies do you have in place to re-emerge and reboot your business post-pandemic?

COVID self isolation is giving us the time to reflect and refresh our business offer, consider opportunities for innovation and address what we want our ‘new normal’ to look like.

For every business founder, there are a plethora of unanswered questions, but few as intentional as understanding the customer, what drives them and our messaging to help them engage with us. At the early stage many business founders are asking:

  • How does my customer process my offer, post-COVID-19?
  • What triggers them to react and drive the outcome we seek?
  • What does my customer messaging look like?
  • What does my founder impact messaging look like?
  • How can I be really intentional and design ahead for these situations?
  • In response to this, GC Hub and Bernard Schokman are joining forces to present a practical workshop to consider the above and more, helping you to define your own unique customer messaging strategies!
