Since the stay-at-home order took effect in March 2020, and the world was forced to grapple with the Covid-19 pandemic, companies and businesses alike were pushed into unprecedented action, including but not limited to closing their business’ doors, and stopping certain advertising strategies altogether.
The sudden shift in business plans rearranged schedules and dwindling finances left many people in business with limited budgets devoted to advertising. But the pandemic is still raging on, more than one year later, which begs the question; as an entrepreneur, will you wait until things get back to normal to continue advertising? Definitely not.
If you are looking for a way to get your business back on its feet and thrive in these covid times, this advertising agency will not only give you a competitive edge against your competitors but also, help you focus on your customers’ needs as much as you can on your own.
Let’s look at some very creative advertising ideas that you can use during these covid times to set yourself apart from all your competitors.
1. Invest In Facebook Ads
Almost everyone that is stuck at home is also scrolling through social media pages such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. More or less, social media platforms are the safest avenues allowed for social interactions currently. As an entrepreneur, you can use Facebook creatively and put your business in Infront of your consumers.
Facebook ads are usually quite affordable even for the smallest of businesses. Even with a small budget, you can showcase the progress you have made in your business and if you have covid 19 exclusive discounts, Facebook ads give you the chance to let your customers know.
Thanks to Facebook’s granular audience targeting capabilities, it is possible to reach customers based on demographics such as gender, location, profession, marital status, and interest.
Facebook ads that are well targeted are quite effective and will truly help you to scale your business. They allow your business page to gain likes, create brand awareness and also inform customers about new deals that you may be offering. You can also start a conversation on your Facebook page and allow your followers to engage with your business. Remember, advertising is only effective when it is done consistently and repeatedly.
2. Hope On YouTube Live

Take time to create interesting content such as leading a live quarantine workout, or answering your customers covid 19 questions. One good thing about YouTube is that the live videos can be saved and customers can watch them later. Be aware that customer’s needs are changing and many of your customers will be different post-pandemic. Be sure to create adverts that relate to their new behaviors and needs.
