Have you recently found yourself looking at the images on your website and in your marketing material with a fond nostalgia? Maybe you’re noticing that those group shots or busy office images are Simply no longer appropriate to use on your social media and even on your website.
Will many feeling apprehensive about venturing out, yet businesses relying on customer support to weather the storm, it’s important to show people that your business is safe and your doors are open.
Depending on the nature of your business the actual layout of your premises may have changed to accommodate customers, clients and guests. Shops, restaurants and hairdressers in particular have had to take extra measures to keep customers safe and distanced – whether using Perspex screens, hand sanitising stations, additional PPE or revised layouts. Some have also taken the opportunity to refresh and redecorate, even more of a reason to show off the ‘new normal’.
Headshots and people
With so much work now virtually focused is your profile picture up to date? How does your Linkedin headshot look – will people recognise you? Business dynamics are changing and shifting with furlough and redundancy but for some industries new hires have also come onboard. Fresh and consistent headshots and team shots will let everyone know who they are dealing with.
Business as usual….
Whether the re-opening of your business has seen changes to the staff behind the scenes or amendments to the aesthetic appearance, updating your images shows people that you are very much ‘open for business’. Keeping them informed and prepared for what to expect on their next visit can also be psychologically very reassuring – and the difference between them coming or not.
One fact remains, that life Simply must go on and we have to accept that things (even if it’s only a temporary measure) have changed. The need for professional and consistent images across your marketing portfolio remains – as does the Simply C ethos to take creative, candid photographs that will enable you to stand out from the crowd, strengthen your brand and ultimately boost your sales.
