Kickstarter is not only the name of the pioneering start-up from New York, but also the term for the type of financing that the American crowdfunding platform has introduced into global digital business. In light of current events, however, giving companies a kick start, i.e. providing support to get off to a flying start into digital business is not only something for start-ups.
Many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are currently also facing the challenge of quickly and productively getting started in remote business, or expanding their digital presence. Starter packs for B2C and B2B would be greatly appreciated. Therefore, we started working together with our partner Salesforce because »we’re all in this together«, right? 😉
E-Commerce Quick, Easy & with Long-Term Success
COVID-19 is turning healthcare, politics, society and not least the economy upside down. The shutdown is important and the right thing to do, but it requires retailers, manufacturers and publishers to critically reflect on themselves more than ever.
Those who have not yet taken the step towards e-commerce now have no more excuses – they have to react, and they have to do so quickly. Because for (too) many companies, #flattenthecurve also means #flattenthesales. However, that does not have to be the case. Physical presence, something many SMEs have primarily relied on so far, is not necessary anymore.
Whether consultation sessions or product presentations – with the combination of the right mindset and toolset, classic sales and service processes can be transferred from analogue to digital and customer requirements can even, if not more so, be met in times of crisis.
» Besides critical self-reflection, we as a digital agency see another major challenge companies are currently facing: the mental readiness to adapt to a ‘new, more demanding e-commerce’.
Many small and medium-sized companies – especially in B2B – have rarely been willing to adopt new perspectives and to use modern technology. We hope that these companies in particular will be able to recognise and seize the opportunities arising from the crisis and use them sensibly for themselves and the future of their company. Especially now and especially when time is of the essence. «
