The coronavirus crisis has pushed huge swathes of the U.S. population out of the office and into home environments over the last few weeks. Some people are working at their job from home, while others have lost their jobs.
Millions of people are spending more time at home during this crisis. According to the experts, having much of the population at home will reduce infection rates and save lives.
But what will be the effect of all of this home-based activity when the crisis is past? And how can you market a home-based business?
More Home-Based Businesses
Although no one can be sure what will happen this time, past recessions usually lead to a new wave of entrepreneurship and home-based businesses.
Although the danger posed by crowds makes starting up businesses particularly challenging at this time, there are still recession-resistant businesses, providing services and products that people want and need. Even at this challenging time, people need home repairs, some senior citizens need help at home, and people always need help with cleaning projects and yard work.
In fact, many famous IT businesses started in a garage or attic and eventually led to larger companies employing many.
The Key to Success
One thing that all startups and home-based businesses need is credibility. Customers need to know that a business is legitimate and trustworthy.
In many cases, print marketing can build the reputation of a strong, home-based business.
Business cards are one of the least expensive forms of marketing available and tell people how to contact you in the event they need your services. Brochures and booklets can tell your story in more detail and can spell out how you can help clients in-depth. Door hangers and mailers can reach new prospects without having to meet them in person. Don’t forget simple promotional products like pens, mugs, apparel, and specialty printed items also help keep your business in front of potential customers. All of these materials can tell people where to go for more information or to place orders online.
So, if you are starting a home-based business, create a marketing plan including both digital and printed marketing, and be sure to use a professional design and printing company to create an outstanding image for your business.
