As we slowly work our way back to normal, practicing proper COVID-19 protocols is an important part of keeping everyone safe and gaining confidence with clients, especially at trade shows. Most of us have not been to a large gathering in months, so creating an environment where everyone feels comfortable has become a key part of running an event.
We wondered about it back in April. We tracked the daily developments throughout May and June. We watched as some colleges planned to have in-person classes, while others (like Harvard) decided in early July that fall 2020 classes would be online only.
Like everyone else, we crossed our fingers that a sense of normalcy would return after the summer and that the Back to College time frame would find us all a little more back to business as usual.
Enhanced Product Content (EPC) is a big deal.
Many brands and online retailers have mastered it. Others, hoping to jump into the mix—and capitalize on an ecommerce industry that has seen several sectors spike during the COVID-19 pandemic—have done so without a proper strategy.
EPC is no different than any other marketing tactic: you’ve got to do it right. No cutting corners. No “hoping.” The preparation is equally as important as the execution, but we’ve seen too many examples of businesses not taking the necessary time to nail it.
Spoiler alert: it doesn’t end well.
