One thing this crisis has done is to increase awareness and use of REMOTE means to have meetings, ie, Zoom, Skype, Facebook...or one to one.
You will see more and more short videos being sent to business owners and if they are done right, can substitute for face to face, belly to belly presentations.
It will save tons of run around time, increase the number of pitches made, and should benefit all users.
It is a new day. Let a short email video be your sales person of tomorrow.
AND a short 3 minute video can have all the elements, persuasion, influence technique you need to get the business person to take action and follow up with you, more than likely with a phone call.
NOW more than ever, the methods and strategies of REMOTE INFLUENCE are going to be critical to some remote direct marketers.
Of course, I think you're right!
It's kind of funny... I've been in a kind of Covid-19-free "cocoon"...
My wife just gave birth to a healthy baby girl.
But here at the hospital, people are screened twice before entering...
Once to enter the hospital. And then to enter the locked birthing ward...
So I've felt pretty safe here.
Back to the wider world again tomorrow, though...
(Will still be sleep-deprived, probably, as I am now!)
It's a time of rapid change.
