Covid-19 How It Affects Corrie D Marketing

Coronavirus Crisis & Business Support

By | Uncategorized

Coranavirus Crisis & Business Support

Sadly, our thoughts are with anyone who has been severely impacted by Covid-19 and our deepest condolences are for loved ones and their extended family members.

To anyone who is ill, we wish you a speedy recovery along with your families and loves ones who are also battling this pandemic.

At Corrie D Marketing we’re always extremely impressed with the resilience of the NHS and all UK frontline emergency workers!

And would like to express our deepest gratitude and admiration to the NHS and medical professionals who are treating those who are ill and working on the frontline.

We also want to take this opportunity to inform you that Corrie D Marketing is here to serve your needs during these uncertain times.

As you may already be aware, our business model means we work virtually using the internet and online technology that is available.

Working remotely we can communicate using Skype, Facetime or use Google hangouts and can share your screen remotely.

Every organization responding to this unprecedented crisis needs agility, to embrace digital and to change the way they work effectively.

To transform your business from an offline business to an online business, and we are here to support business owners, in any way we can.

While more and more people and families/households are advised if experiencing symptoms to self-isolate, and others due to their age/health.

Whilst others are being advised to work from home.

Meaning, there are more opportunities right now than EVER BEFORE, for ALL types of business owners.

As people are consuming their news online and on social media networks, to be kept up to date with the latest press releases from the government/coronavirus etc.

This also offers businesses an unprecedented opportunity NEVER SEEN BEFORE to advertise and promote their products/services via digital marketing and online advertising platforms.

As more and more people consume their news about this pandemic online on social media and on websites therefore giving you the ideal opportunity to tap into these people.

So that when your business re-opens (if currently closed) then you are like a sprung coil, ready with a list of leads for you to contact on opening day.

This may be a very different world when it re-opens.

The financial markets have said we could be heading for a recession, so every business needs to grab as many customers as they possibly can.

To think you are saving money by not advertising is a fallacy!

This is simply not true – Think of it like this: If you have a B&B but you don’t advertise it or market it, then all you have is a house.

BE READY FOR THE BOUNCEBACK! 

We know and understand that these are uncertain times and many business are worrying.

So we’ve included below some useful links we thought may help your cash flow, during these difficult times.

Facebook Page Manager

By | Facebook

Are you a business owner with a Facebook business page?

Do you understand the importance of page roles?

Do you know the difference between Admin V Editor roles and their relevant permissions?

As a page owner, we always recommend your page role is “admin” as this is your property, it is your business, you own this.

The person who creates the page is automatically the “admin”.

And sometimes…Unfortunately, web developers, friends, family, well-meaning members of staff.

Who set this up for the business owner, but the business owner is not made an ADMIN but they are the business owner

but have been set up with a lower ranking page role with less permissions than ad admin has, such as an “editor”…

Which means you do not have as many privileges as an Admin and does not allow you to add or remove admins!

Only admins can assign ie add/remove page roles to your Facebook page.

Only an admin page role has the necessary privileges or access required to add or remove admins.

See table below

Corrie D Marketing Facebook Admin Roles

We always recommend any of our clients ie the business owner should always be the admin we recommend having a few on there,

not just one because if the ONLY person that is the admin has there page taken down or removed then no-one can gain access to the business page.

Plus as the admin you have the greatest control over your page as this is your business and your collateral.

See more on this table below ?

There are 6 different types of roles for people who manage Pages. When you create a Page, you automatically become the Page’s admin, which means you can change the Page the style and how it looks and you can publish as the business page.

Keep in mind that multiple people can have roles on a Page, but each person needs their own personal Facebook account.
If you’re looking for help marketing your business online, we can help! From Facebook page management, Social Media management, Facebook Ads, Online Ads, Branded and customised Facebook pages inc logo icons, cover images, video covers. Perhaps you have multiple pages and want to merge those together. We have 8 years experience of helping businesses with their social media and online digital marketing. ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING at all – We can help!

To summarise – The hare is very confident of winning, so it stops during the race and falls asleep. The tortoise however continues to move very slowly but without stopping and finally it wins the race.
