Outline a detailed plan for successful execution, including how to measure results. By the time things go back to normal, your agencies will be well equipped to get you back on track.

  • Embrace technology – Start using Zoom to have your meetings. Decisions can still be made through brainstorms and consultation online. Create an online system for your approvals.

  • Focus on your customer – Explore digital ways to connect with your customers and get their feedback on your products and services. They will have time to get detailed, giving you valuable information for improvement.

  • Merchandise – As people are shopping more, and in bulk, ensure that your products are well merchandised in all your stores. This will require dedicated people on ground, or even take safe measures to seed your product.

Learning from home is an excellent way to keep active, and engage the mind.
