Tips for Human-centric Content Amid the Pandemic

June 12, 2020

What does it take to deliver a human-centric content amid this pandemic?

Answer: The same qualities it took to deliver a customer-centric experience prior to the outbreak.

The current climate will require tactical changes. Brands may have to focus on reshaping their sales and marketing messages. They surely will have to harness digital and remote work capabilities. Despite the drastic change in the way we do things, one thing remains constant: the need to create content that tells a story to connect with your audiences on an emotional level.

With many countries taking the lock down approach, this pandemic has left many adjusting to a new normal and learning new ways to do things. Your consumers are experiencing the side effects of a pandemic such as income changes, limited social interaction, and fear for their own health as well as their loved ones’.

No matter what industry you’re in, creating content in the time of COVID-19 is no easy feat. For content marketers, it can be a struggle to determine what types of content and interactions are appropriate during these difficult times.
