Here are the 5 important ways that you can take note of in the post-lockdown era. Because these ways will help you and your business get back on top with an impactful bang. Keep reading to know more.
- Transparency with your Customers
Words can’t express the importance of transparency with your customers at this time. As a businessman – it should be your top rule to instil trust among your customer base – people who are already in dread of going outside to do even the simplest and most basic tasks. If your customers are ordering online from your website, it is your responsibility to empower them with dynamic updates about where there scheduled package is and when it would likely be arriving at their doorstep.
And if you don’t really have the means to be transparent with your customers, hire or take help of a tech-enabled tool that will provide your customers with constant updates about their scheduled order. For instance, once you create a responsive website with the help of Shiprocket Social and start shipping products to your customers through Shiprocket, the latter will ensure to continuously send updates through SMS and emails to your customers.
Because that is the only ethical way to reset your business and get effective results.

Because in a world where the trend of physical markets is dying a fast death, and people are aiming to aggressively practise social distancing, don’t you think that eCommerce is the only real way to ensure that your business not only survives but thrives.
So yes, we urge all you sellers to hop aboard the eCommerce bandwagon. Go ahead, use our easy-to-use site builder and start shipping products to your customers directly to their doorsteps. Give them convenience and safety, because those are the most valuable things in the world of business right now.
- Keep Your Team Motivated
Your team is constantly working from home to ensure the smooth operation of your business. And why would they not? They have all the incentive in the world to make your business a successful one. However, as an entrepreneur, you need to make sure that your team is motivated whilst working from home and connected with you through video conferencing tools such as Zoom, Slack, Skype etc.
The more you stay connected through technology and keep working things out, the more your business will lead toward the path of a reset.
- Automation is the Key
The idea post lockdown is to mitigate the fears of coronavirus and at the same time keep practising social distancing while completing your tasks related to the business. And what better than technology to help achieve this? Your business needs to automate the logistics side of things so that everything keeps running smoothly whilst flattening the curve.
