What’s Your Marketing Recovery Message?
By Jessaca Gutierrez, Content Creation Specialist
I’m writing this while my 2-year-old merrily chomps away on a post-nap chocolate chip cookie, my 9-year-old slogs his way through a 3rd grade writing assignment on the computer, my husband takes another phone call from his WFH office in our bedroom, and in the background, my 5-year-old is serenading us with the latest song she’s created. This is my new normal. I’ve repeated Denis Leary’s quote, “Crisis doesn’t create character; it reveals it,” so often in my head lately, it’s become my MO for forging ahead. In marketing, this quote is especially apropos. The way a company responds to a crisis not only reveals a lot about brand, it also has a long-lasting impact on your relationship with customers.
In Shane Barker’s Marketing Madness podcast with guest Ted Rubin — a social marketing strategist, author, speaker, and Photofy CMO — Rubin said now is the time to focus on reaching out to your customers and strengthening your relationship with them. He coined the phrase “return on relationship” or RoR for the accrued value from that process. Never has RoR been more important, and like everything else, your plan and message needs to be thoughtfully built around a new normal and with the goal to bank some RoR.
