    We are experiencing an unprecedented time right now. Everything we've known to be true has been turned upside down. 

    We're trying to navigate a space and span of time in business (and life in general) that none of us have ever experienced before. And, it's one we'll likely never experience again in our lifetimes.

    It's a time that was unfathomable just a few months ago. A time of social distancing, stay-at-home orders, work-from-home mandates, marketing budget freezes, eLearning for our children, Zoom fatigue, and so much more that's shocking our lives and world right now.

    5 Things E-commerce Needs to Do Right Now to Survive

    Posted by Joanna Ellis-Escobar

    Jun 14, 2020 10:25:26 AM

    While we're certain to see a new type of normalcy post-pandemic, the question we're wrestling with here at Flair right now is what type of lasting impact COVID-19 will leave on the world of e-commerce.

    In April 2020, e-commerce retailers reported a whopping 68% increase in year-over-year sales, and the categories that surged are a close reflection of the general consumer mindset:

    So our questions are this: will these consumer trends continue or will new buying patterns emerge? What should e-commerce companies be doing, right now, to make sure they can make it through these turbulent times and survive one we're on the other side? 

    Of this, we're certain: both in the current market conditions, and going forward into an uncertain future, the brands that survive will be the ones that are willing to change tactics, update strategies and even alter the fundamentals of their business. In short, they're the ones who will be agile and able to adapt.

    Let's look at five ways that e-commerce can adapt to changing conditions to not just survive, but thrive.

    Surviving COVID-19 Summit

    COVID-19 has changed the business and marketing landscape in unprecedented ways during recent months. Things are changing fast, and they'll continue to do so for the foreseeable future and beyond.

    Digital Marketing Strategy Tips for 2020

    Posted by Lisa Kirschner

    Dec 31, 2019 11:54:37 AM

    So you haven't created a 2020 digital marketing strategy yet? Never fear...we've got your back!

    Here are five things you should keep in mind as you're developing your strategic plan for 2020:

    1. Keep it simple. Don't have time to create a full strategic plan that includes all digital marketing tactics you need to implement this year? Start small and create a high-level summary.
    2. Set goals. You absolutely must have clear, measurable and specific goals in mind as you head into the new year. Think about what your primary goals are for 2020...do you need more traffic, better leads or higher conversions (i.e. more customers)? Document those goals, including progress you plan to make by month or quarter.
