Life after the Covid-19 Pandemic

Here’s what to expect long term from the coronavirus pandemic: “Stay Home”

The coronavirus has uprooted life as we know it. Everything from our social gatherings to our daily errands has been completely changed and most of us are not too fond of the switch. Realistically and sadly, though, life will not go back to what it was for quite some time. Life is going to look different for the next few years, but what exactly does that mean?

Expect the world to change to a mask-wearing culture

A year from now, and even beyond that, expect to still see people wearing masks in public, especially people who are more vulnerable to COVID-19. Mask-wearing will become a new normal, the way it has been in many Asian countries in recent years.

There will be fewer business trips and more remote work opportunities

With the increase in digital technologies and the realization that some industries can easily continue without sending staff across the county or across the globe, expect business trips to be reduced for people in most industries. With the increase in digital technologie, we no longer have to be physically in the same room to accomplish many things. Expect corporations to be more flexible with remote work policies, especially if work is still getting accomplished at home while keeping people from getting sick and helping the company with operations costs.

Concerts and sporting events

Do not expect crowded sporting events and packed concerts to become part of our new normal. It is going to be hard to convince people to go back to large indoor entertainment and recreational gatherings. What you will see is clusters of people at smaller gatherings. The new normal will be for people to avoid large gatherings in enclosed space. Outdoor social and entertainment smaller gatherings will be preferred and part of the norm.

Expect significant psychological, societal and cultural impacts

People are profoundly affected by the major events that occur in their lifetime. Accordingly, t is to be expected that modern-day society will be shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic. The psychological after-effects of disasters typically emerge six months after the event ends. Long-term mental health effects and societal changes as a result of the pandemic, which has kept millions of people isolated socially and physically for months, are to be expected. There are going to be many long-term effects. We will see a significant increase in depressions, suicide rates and marital problems.

Expect certain levels of discord throughout communities

While the vast majority of people are counting down the days before we find a vaccine, dark days are to be expected. There is a tremendous likelihood of conflict, social discord and unanticipated consequences with the arrival of the vaccine. The distribution of the vaccine will be chaotic and problematic. There will be inequities and many will refuse to be vaccinated. Communities, co-workers, friends and families will be faced with tough decisions regarding everything from the topic of how to safely socialize after months and months of isolation to sending their child to school where there may be unvaccinated students.

Finally, do not expect the virus to go away completely

The COVID-19 coronavirus will not disappear when the vaccine is deployed. Many are opposed to vaccines. We are already seeing people saying they will refuse for themselves, their children and the members of their family, to be vaccine thus, severely limiting the ability to create any form of herd immunity, which would provide protection for those who cannot get the vaccine or have not yet been vaccinated. The virus will still be circulating even after an effective vaccine is widely available as a result of those who choose not to get the vaccine.

NEVER LET A GOOD CRISIS GO TO WASTE

The COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic: A major opportunity to transform your business and reinvent all your processes.

Never let a good crisis go to waste. It could be a great opportunity.

No one can predict when a crisis will occur.

Most people, corporations and brands will experience a potential crisis about every two years and not all public relations firms are fully equipped to handle events disrupting your business operations, threatens to harm people, damages your reputation, and negatively impacts your finances.

Most crisis management companies are communication experts with backgrounds in public relations, social media, and reputation marketing. While those strategies alone may have worked in the past, they will not be enough in 2020 and beyond.

Crisis management planning begins long before an issue arises. It can be tempting to put off risk management when things are going well. However, inadequate preparation can have serious operational, legal, and public relations consequences.

CRISIS & REPUTATION MANAGEMENT

How you Respond to a Crisis Will Affect Your Reputation for Years to Come.

The evidence is irrefutable.

Without proper preparation, individuals, public and private organizations of any size can be blindsided by a long list of possible crises.

How an organization responds to a crisis can dramatically affect your reputation, revenues and even your share price. How you communicate to media and key audiences following a crisis situation is as important as how you respond to the crisis.

Knowing when and how to respond to requests for media comments, acting quickly and prudently is key to maintain or restoring your reputation.

Targeting Customers on Social Media

Is Your Business Digitally Ready to Face the New Reality?

COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC 

Focus on the short and sweet

Minimizing the Coronavirus Impact on Your Business

The 2020 Coronavirus Effect and Your Marketing Strategy

Is your Business ready for what comes next?

“It doesn’t get much better than a moment of delight on social media.”

For most businesses, social media engagement seems like a slam dunk strategy. Everyone should be doing it, right? But it certainly comes with its blind spots and questions.

One of the quickest and easiest ways to set yourself apart on social media is simply to reply to all your customers, all the time. A helpful and happy response, will invariably propel you ahead of the curve. All it takes is engaging with the people who want to engage with you.

Eighty-eight percent of brands do not respond to messages that need a reply. Simply by engaging with your customers and clients, by engaging with the people who want to engage with you, be among the elite twelve percent.

JMD Systemics can help you do just that. Here are some tips that you can implement today.

1. Social media engagement is public

Social media engagement allows you to naturally amplify your brand’s voice and tone. Social media engagement allows you to propel your interactions front-and-center before a larger audience.

Traditional private one on one private interactions like email are fine, but with social channels like Twitter, these interactions can be public, at least to start. The same goes for engaging with your audience in Instagram comments or Facebook reviews.

You are already wow-ing your private audience in other channels like email and live chat! With social media, the awesomeness you are delivering becomes visible to everyone. Those amazing audience interactions that create strong word of mouth marketing for you are now amplified to a much larger audience.

Existing and potential customers get to see first-hand that you are responsive and actively supporting your products and services.

2. Social media engagement is fast and focused

You can deliver delight very fast and in a focused way, chatting with your audience about specific topics and campaigns or helping solve particular problems that they are facing.

Focusing on the short and sweet, something magical happens: the barrier to entry for your audience drops dramatically. They now have an easy way to converse with you, anytime. Focusing and specific topics mean you can reply faster and engage deeper with your audience.

Faster responses equal happier customers, which equals more ROI. Happier customers and clients are the one big factor that affects any bottom line: faster responses actually generate revenue for all brands.

Because of its fast and friendly nature, social media is often preferred over other channels of getting in touch. The more and faster you respond to your audience, the better and faster prospective customers and clients learn that social media are great places to connect directly with both, you and your brand.

3. Social media is where your customers are.

Today, in these days of COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, social media is where your customers are. You can achieve a huge scale of engagement by being responsive on social media.

A vast majority of your audience of your prospective customers and clients are on social media throughout the day. It is where they are at and where it often makes the most sense for them to reach out and get in touch. Today, people spend most of their waking hours staring at screens.

Let it be known that people spend an average of nearly four hours a day consuming media on a screen. A growing percentage of that viewing happens on smartphones and apps.

What are you waiting for?

The Present Belongs to Crowds

Today and tomorrow, like it or not, the future belongs to crowds.

We are now living in a society where there are too many chiefs and not enough indians.

Remember the images of the Chinese pro-democracy protesters dispersed by troops in Tiananmen Square; the images of the several million mourners streaming through the streets of Tehran to the funeral of Ayatollah Khomeini; the images of a “tent city” emerging in Tompkins Square Park; the images of hundreds of English soccer fans penned against a chain-link fence during a match at Hillsborough Stadium, in Sheffield?

The year 2020 is now defined by images of crowds to rival those of the past: people waiting in mile-long lines at food banks; police using tear gas to disperse protesters; thousands of people gathered in support of Black Life Matters, Pro-life, LGBTQ rights and so on. More than ever, the protests of the past few years have shown that the most immediate and dramatic way for people to register discontent and call for change is by massing in the streets in frank and perilous defiance of the establishment and public order.

More than ever, people are standing in the streets rather that in the voting polls.

A dire consequence: governments, legislators and politicians are no longer adopting legislations and policies to build a better society, they are doing it to please the crowds and make sure to be re-elected and maintain their own personal power. To make things worse, news media in search of better ratings, are throwing oil on the fire: news commentators are no longer reporting, they are commenting; the more incipient and incendiary they are, the more profit. The real problem of the world today is not the Covid-19, the real problem is the degeneracies and degeneration of the people.

Imbecility is now the trademark of most of our populations.

Among the younger generation, progressive values are hegemonic. On issues ranging from LGBTQ and women’s rights to anti-racism and immigration, younger people are attempting to communicate their moral values on social media to the older generation. “Black Lives Matter” is just one flashpoint in that struggle.

2020 is getting really crazy, perhaps the most astounding year in generations, a year of norm-shattering abnormalities with an unlimited potential of destruction that might culminate in world-wide conflicts.

Based on the crisis-infused year we are in now, it is easy to predict that the balance of 2020 will unfold with even more craziness and long forgot aberrations. As I see it, as for the deluge, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, the Covid-19 is a benediction that will purge the earth from all the Trumps of this world, from all the malefactors of an evil society.

Minimizing the Coronavirus Impact on Your Business

Long-term trend toward online purchases gains momentum that will last long after the pandemic is over.

The COVID-19 global pandemic will likely be one of the defining events of 2020, and that it will have business implications that last well into the decade. The actual trend toward online purchases is gaining momentum and will last long after the coronavirus crisis is over. Coronavirus has drastically shifted the world’s buying habits, and businesses are rapidly adjusting to the new pandemic reality.

There is no escaping the fact that regardless of what your perception of the actual crisis may be, the truth actually is that the COVID-19 impacting our way of life and the economy in dramatic ways. The coronavirus pandemic is deepening a national digital divide, amplifying gains for businesses that cater to customers online, while businesses reliant on more traditional models fight for survival.

Sadly, many businesses are losing money and some are on the e brink of having to shut down their doors permanently.

Can this be avoided?

No matter what your opinion may be on the merit of this virus crisis and its threat to society, there is no denying that it is creating a multiplier effect on what was already a trend towards online buying behavior. This current outbreak is taking that trend to a whole other level inciting and forcing people of all ages to rethink how they live their lives and how they buy.

Consequently, if you own a business, now is the time to really think hard about how your business is investing in its online strategies and whether you are prepared to cater to this new world. It does not matter if your products or services are designed for in-store experiences, now is the time to re-think how your business can evolve to ensure it survives this changing dynamic. Whether it is creating new product lines, better leveraging content marketing and social media strategies to keep customers connected to your brand, or even thinking bigger about new business ideas that capitalize exclusively in a digital world, you have to think differently. Subscription-based delivery services and remote focused technology offerings are going to explode in growth as more and more people choose to shop and make their buying decisions from the comfort and safety of their own homes.

The situation is rapidly evolving

The amount of people deemed safe to gather in a single place has dwindled from thousands, to hundreds, to ten. Restaurants, bars, movie theaters, gyms, businesses and most public places in many major cities are either forced to shut down or restrain their access to the public. Meanwhile many office workers are facing new challenges of working remotely full time. Essentially, people are coming to terms with the realities of our interconnected world and how difficult it is to temporarily separate those connections to others.

To say that we are living in unprecedented times feels like an understatement.

One of the responses we have seen to how people are approaching this period of isolation and uncertainty is in huge overnight changes to their shopping behaviors. From bulk-buying to online shopping, people are changing what they are buying, when and how they are buying.

As more cities are going under lockdowns, nonessential businesses are being ordered to close, and customers are generally avoiding public places. Limiting shopping for all but necessary essentials, making masks mandatory and enforcing social distancing is now, like it or not, becoming a new normal.

Brands are having to adapt and be flexible to meet changing needs. The Coronavirus Pandemic will last for at least another 18 months with business implications that will last well into the decade.

JMD Systemics, a division of King Global Earth and Environmental Sciences Corporation is here to help you make the best decisions for your brand during these uncertain times. At JMD Systemics, to help you determine what choices you can make for your business, we have gathered some facts and numbers around how behaviors are changing, what products people are buying, and what industries are feeling the strain.

JMD Systemics Website Design & Development can provide not only the platform on which to quickly launch your online store and stabilize your business, but also the resources and tools you need to make the process as smooth as possible.

Will Trump Try to Steal the 2020 Election?

Presidential election of 2020 in the United States of America

The way things are going, this could be a very legitimate question and this is a concern that is shared by the former Vice president of the United States Joe Biden and the actual Senator of New Jersey Cory Booker saying that would sooner die than let it happen. As for Biden, in the eventuality of Trump losing the 2020 election, he is already contemplating and welcoming the possibility of the military evicting Trump from the White House if he loses the election but refuses to leave office.

“Mark my words: I think he is gonna try to kick back the election somehow, come up with some rationale why it can’t be held,” Biden said in April and repeated last Wednesday June 10. “Trump will “try to steal” the general election in November by limiting Americans’ access to voting,” said the former Vice president. Furthermore, Biden acknowledged raising the possibility that Trump would not assent to a peaceful transition of power and suggesting leaders within America’s armed forces would eventually force Trump from office.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany and Trump’s Chief Apologist and Lie Teller, responding to Biden’s remarks, dismissed the notion that troops would be required to remove the president after the election, calling it a “ridiculous proposition.” “This president’s looking forward to November. This president’s hard at work for the American people,” she said.

Yes indeed Kayleigh! A lot of people are looking forward to November, to kick your boss out of the office.
