As the saying goes ‘Mother is greater than heavens’, everyone out there is eager to shower their immense love and respect upon their mothers. As Mother's Day is just around the corner!
However, this Mother’s Day is going to be quite different. With home quarantine and lockdown enforced in various regions across the globe, nobody can go out for dining, a casual drive, or a picnic.
Though social distancing has become a new norm, people can still remain emotionally attached. If you are a print store owner, it is time you respected and helped your customers express their feelings this Mother’s Day by offering them a range of personalized products.
Before we proceed with the list, read on a few crucial points to consider.
- It may not be practically possible or easy to fulfill all deliveries - especially the far ones. Therefore, focusing more on the orders from the vicinity would be beneficial and practical.
- Enlist the regions where you have stopped accepting orders from for now on your website, social media, and other channels. Also mention regions where you can accept orders from but their deliveries could take more time than usual in the wake of the lockdown situation.
- Otherwise, you can also ask customers to enter the zip codes of their regions to check whether they can place orders from there or not. Customers will then be able to decide whether to proceed with placing orders or not. At the same time, it can save your reduced support staff the hassle of answering a huge volume of enquiries over calls or emails. Further, chances of a delivery failure leading to a decline in your brand repo also reduce to a minimum.
- Keep your customer updated about their order statuses continuously to retain their trust. Notify them of the delivery statuses via emails and messages, especially when there are chances of delivery delays along with proper reasons.
