The year 2020 would be infamously known in the future for having had the worst start of a decade. January brought us horrible news in the form of Australian bushfires and World War-III rumours followed by the Covid-19 outbreak which turned into a pandemic by the beginning of March. With such a rough start to a new decade, various companies who had already scheduled their marketing schedule for the first quarter have had to adjust to the pandemic.

The Covid-19 outbreak spread rapidly across the world due to its nature of being highly contagious and due to this most of the countries resorted to quarantine. With millions of people and companies now switching to the “Work from Home” concept, everyone had to change their approach of achieving profitable business and growth.

Below explained are the 10- major concepts for digital marketing and budget that companies should embrace in order to be relevant during the pandemic:

1. Identify your Gross Revenue and Holdings:

Companies need to accept the fact that businesses will take a heavy toll and as a result they have to adjust and adapt to the conditions. Having a good idea of the total revenue and also an estimate of how much earnings can be achieved during the pandemic will give them a clear idea of the budget for marketing purposes.

2. Making Digital Marketing as the main priority:

With millions of people confined to their homes all around the world, traffic on the internet will be at a record high. Companies need to take advantage of this and target the top social media platforms with their digital marketing campaigns and draft out a budget accordingly.

3. Analyse and Implement Tasks:

Companies can plan out a systematic schedule for their digital marketing campaigns for multiple platforms. They can mainly focus on carrying out marketing campaigns on major social media and digital platforms which will help them target millions of users worldwide.

4. Paid Promotions:

Due to the quarantine effect taking place all over the world, companies can plan out a budget for each social media platform and carry out paid promotions depending on the traffic that each social media platform contributes towards their brand. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube are the major platforms having millions of users and perfect for carrying out paid promotions.

5. Improving SEO keywords for better results:

Companies can improve upon their SEO keywords in order to rank higher in the search results. They can either spend their budget by taking help from other companies specializing in SEO or carry out detailed analysis on other platforms in order to improve upon their SEO.
