How to communicate effectively with customers during the second wave

January 8, 2020

With the second wave of COVID-19 lockdowns hitting retail and foodservice sectors, many business owners are using the lessons learned during the first wave to navigate the ever-changing business environment.

Some businesses have pivoted to new service models or products to maintain a positive cash flow, such as online ordering and food delivery. Others are using their production facilities to produce much-needed medical gear. In either case, having an ongoing dialogue with customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders has been crucial to their recovery.

Whether or not you have the means or opportunity to offer new products or services, establishing an external communication plan to engage with customers will be vital.
