If you are a digital marketing agency owner or working with any digital marketing agencies or even if you are looking forward to starting to work with a digital marketing agency then this may be your primary thought. Here are the Ways Digital Marketing Agencies will change due to COVID-19.
Hiring newbies will be a challenge for digital marketing agencies.
Most of the digital marketing agencies will continue to work from home even after the pandemic. Well, WFH might seem like a better option for employees and digital marketing agencies since the employees can cut their travel expenses and the agency can cut-down their rent. But when it comes to newbies, they won’t get the necessary exposure. The exposure of team building, learning new things from the experienced, work culture and many more will remain as a challenge for the newbies.
Strategies will change.
The way the digital marketing agency works to fulfil the client requirement will change. Not in all cases but in most of the cases it will change for sure.
Strategies will change because of
- a change in customer requirements
- a change in the interests of the target audience
- change in the audience themself
- the government regulations
- change in the budget of the client
- the changes in the work culture
The client communication, as well as communication with the digital marketing agency, will change a lot. Most of the things will be restricted to online modes. Right now we are facing a situation where the hugs and handshakes are considered to be the weapons and staying far is the sign of showing love and gratitude.
How communication will change:
- using applications like Zoom, Google Meet, Skype will be the new norm
Just make sure the online meetings are as professional as possible. Just think of this in a team meeting, there are two people – one, well dressed, elegant, and has a board in the background with a schedule written on it and the other person who is in his sweatshirt and has clothes hanging all over the place in the background. Whom do you prefer talking to? The second person right. The same follows with the client as well.
When things were normal, it was easy to manage things as everyone was in the office. Things now will change towards the virtual methods. Company managers, CEO’s and managers will have to use a few tools to get updated with the employes work progress. Meeting at times is also a possibility. Nevertheless, the entire organisational methods will change for sure.
The digital marketing agencies will have to take a deeper look into the area of the client. There may be enough audience for the niche, but the interests of the audience might have changed. Not having a huge audience is fine, but targeting the right audience and not getting results will be the worst thing that could happen. It is suggested to better stay away from these kinds of niches. The travel agency is one of those niches. People will not be travelling for vacation for at least two to three years. Even the business trips will be halted for a while.
The entire world has experienced a huge magnitude of loss because of the COVID-19. But we are humans, we can come out of this getting even stronger and digital marketing agency is not an exception. “Even this will pass and you will come out stronger.” Right now it is all about adapting to the changes. Just read all the Ways Digital Marketing Agencies will change due to COVID-19 again and think of how you can adapt to it.
