The tension is very real since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. It has quickly swept our lives, and radically transformed the world and businesses in less than a month; forcing countries to enter into a state of lockdown and the economic downturn changing even large, established companies literally overnight.
We can only imagine the impact it has for smaller businesses and newer ventures that do not have the resources or cash flow to maintain their operations for long periods.
The vast majority of marketers are now putting their marketing on hold to conserve their funds during this financial uncertainty. Almost nine in 10 marketers are now delaying their campaigns in response to COVID-19, according to Marketing Week.
At the same time, press release distribution company MarketersMEDIA stresses that marketing is still, if not more important than ever to remain relevant and competitive.
There will come a time when the coronavirus pandemic is over and the businesses who will come out as winners are businesses that have never stopped their marketing efforts to remain connected with their users and customers.
“We see a need to aid businesses to continue their marketing without having to worry about their costs,” said Daniel Tan, the Founder of MarketersMEDIA. “So when the crisis is all over, businesses can rebound quicker especially if they have remained engaged with their customers throughout the crisis.”
The press release service debuted a marketing aid of US$1.5 million in press release credits to help small and midsize businesses get through COVID-19 with one less expense. Businesses can apply for the initiative to receive a First Tier press release where they can use to reach out to their users and customers to ensure business continuity during the crisis.
A First-Tier press release with MarketersMEDIA will help them get their message to AP News, USA Today, MarketWatch, Comtex, ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, and over 500 authoritative media outlets in different verticals, in addition to reaching thousands of newsdesk journalists and archival systems.
This can be extremely helpful in times of the lockdown when more and more people are looking and searching for news updates.
