Marketers Must Rise Above Chaos-Inspired Exploitation

By Wendy Coombes on 20-Mar-2020 11:03:30

Last week the WHO declared COVID-19 a pandemic and since the global situation is evolving pretty much by the hour. Exactly how should marketers behave during such an unprecedented time?

In the same vein as the panic buying and hoarding that continues to go on, I see some of my fellow marketers and business owners resort to some frenzied and frankly questionable tactics.

When it comes to promoting our businesses, it’s essential that we elevate yourself above the chaos and begin responding in a thoughtful and ethical manner.

Most of us have a sixth sense for businesses that are exploitative of people who may have lost or are on the verge of losing belief in survival of their business or future.

The vast majority I know in business and work with possess a strong moral compass. Unfortunately there are also plenty of charlatans who do the rest of us a great disservice. One example in particular is the area of life and business coaching. Unfortunately for each trustworthy coach that is out there doing great work for their clients, there are several that come across as superficial and, frankly, opportunistic.

But unfortunately the coaching sector is not the only example. I’ve seen plenty of very questionable practices over the past week in particular.

This is exactly why the certain sectors as well as the marketing profession gets a bad rap.

It’s time to stop the frenzy.

It’s time to stop reacting and start responding.

Marketing is one of those things that lands on health and wellness professionals "list of least favourite activities" or the "too hard basket".

It can feel like such a "hit and miss" activity and, frankly, like just a waste of time. After all if you had wanted to be a marketer you would have enrolled in marketing school. Right? 

You might feel frustrated and disappointed with the results from your marketing activities. Or, perhaps you are starting out in your own and you want to avoid the biggest mistakes.

If either of the statements above resonate, you will find this article helpful.
