This episode of the Channel Mastery podcast offes another installment of the series for effectively communicating as a specialty business during the Coronavirus crisis. It was recorded live on Facebook Live on Monday, March 23, 2020 and is available on that platform as well.
The message of this broadcast focuses on taking steps forward and the paradigm shift that is happening right now as we continue to learn how to navigate through these difficult times. Two weeks ago, we were seeing people in preparation mode, and while we still may be in that to some extent, we’re seeing a shift of the human spirit in that people are going from preppers to helpers.
As a business in the trenches of this with all of us at Verde, it is absolutely imperative that you are not tone deaf to the news cycle and how your audience is receiving and reacting to it. I have promised to continue to be available here with you through this and will continue to offer resources to your brands. I hope you find this episode to be helpful and wish you, your employees, your families and friends health and safety during these trying times.
