5 Ways to Use Digital to Improve Consumer Confidence 

  1. Many customers – especially those at risk – will be more likely to return if they know you are taking extra measures to protect their health.  
  • What are you asking the customer to do?  
  • What do you expect from your employees? 
  • Do you sanitize shopping carts after every use? 
  1. The same individuals who have may not have visited your store in person in almost a year will need to know how your business has changed.  
  • Have your hours changed?  
  • Do you offer special hours for those at risk? 
  • Do you offer curbside pickup? Delivery? 
  1. Share how you would like customers to act while shopping.  
  • Do you want them to wear masks?  
  • Do you enforce social distancing? 
  • If ordering pickup, will you bring it to the curb or do they need to go inside? 
  1. Once inside, digital technology can help with wayfinding and remind customers of enforced rules or new procedures. 
  • Direct customers to high volume items such as toilet paper, medication, etc. 
  • Communicate capacity counts 
  • Highlight areas with available seating 
  1. The world as we know it will likely not return to “normal” post-COVID.
