Know the market and plan carefully
The shock in the global economy due to the pandemic was felt by practically every country in the world. It is no different and the maxim “hope for the best, prepare for the worst” is worth it here, that is, plan.
There is no need for an annual plan, set in stone, but keep in mind the steps of your business or brand in shorter periods, with defined goals and key objectives to be fulfilled, as well as agility to change the course of the strategy according to your results.
For this, always keep in mind the following questions:
Does my team understand the company’s strategy?
Is my team executing the strategy?
Is the strategy generating satisfactory results?
Planning that focuses on achieving the best results but is prepared for a challenging scenario and a team 100% attuned to the strategies are the first steps on the path to success.
It is common to see within companies, in times of crisis, that the first cut in spending is on training and investment in employees. This is a big mistake.
Before you can charge your team for results, you need to empower your workers to serve a fluid market and consumers who change needs all the time.
Of course, monitoring is essential to see if investing in people is generating results as expected.
But to provide complete experiences to your company’s customers, first, you need to deliver internal experiences to your team that shows the way to success.
Keeping an eye on trends
Finally, among so many movements in the way of consuming, seeing the world, and dealing with processes in general during the pandemic, Deloitte’s Global Marketing Trends 2021 survey highlights 7 trends for brands that want to drive results and grow in this new year.
Organizations that know why they exist and who they are targeting are in a unique position to navigate a scenario of frequent and abrupt changes.
This is the right time for marketers to take advantage of relevant digital tools and create an organizational roadmap to make agile marketing a reality.
Direct your company’s mentality about the time of creating products and services, guiding the efficiency and enhancement of the human connection.
To build trust in turbulent times, brands must look at what people value – rather than how they are – ensuring that their commitments are in sync with their competence to deliver consumers’ needs.
Marketers can benefit – and stay ahead of the competition – by developing an engagement strategy based on the client’s active participation in their various relationship channels.
Organizations can better assist customers by creating innovative experiences through cross-sector partnerships.
As the marketing landscape undergoes rapid changes, talent models must evolve at the same time that the area is positioned as a competitive differential.
Putting it into practice
To exemplify and show how the application of these tips can bring results, we can observe the Natura brand that was considered, according to a survey conducted by TM20 branding and Brazil Panels, released by NeoFeed, the brand that caused the most impact positive during the pandemic, according to consumers.
Early in the crisis, the brand accelerated the process and increased the offer in digital tools, such as e-commerce, betting on online sales, avoiding the challenge of face-to-face restriction.
But this was only possible due to planning and prior knowledge of the market. The company that has existed for more than 50 years, has a culture of planning, seeing in the long term, and finding opportunities in all situations, as we can see in an in-depth case study on the brand culture.
Natura also has a perspective on caring for insiders. In other words, both employees and their resellers spread across the country, have in mind the purpose of the company, in addition to understanding exactly the way of the brand to do business and sell.
