The fact that there might be a Covid-related government lockdown of a specific area in 2020 is an idea that we have gotten used to.
However the fact that much of the economic life in a give area has been suspended for a period of time doesn't mean that your business needs to shut down and that you can't market your products or services.
In relation to this we often get the question - Can you deliver leaflets in London during lockdown?
Many companies like restaurants, online tutors, dentists, surgeries and councils can and should operate during a lockdown. People working in these industries are Key Workers and so are our distributors.
We at The Private Postman have worked with many councils around London in April this year as well. We've delivered crucial information to the residents of many boroughs and helped surgeries, dentists and council communicate with people.
No matter what is happening in the world people need to be able to receive information from their local government and health service providers. And this includes people who are not comfortable using the internet.
As such distributors are Key Workers and our service were used during lockdowns by many organisations. So - Can you deliver leaflets in London during lockdown? Yes we can.
If you are running a restaurant and are struggling to talk to your clients using only crowded online platforms leaflet distribution can be a really powerful tool.
The same applies to Yoga teachers, language and math classes and many other services that can be provided over the internet. The fact that your services will be provided over the internet doesn't mean that you marketing needs to focus there exclusively also.
Especially if you normally provide your services face to face. Being local and gaining new clients that you service Skype or Zoom over this period can and will translate to more face to face business in your local area when the lockdowns are lifted.
This is especially the case when your leaflet distribution drop is focused on your local London area. Leaflet distribution is an amazingly powerful tool to market important services and businesses during lockdowns as people are home and that is exactly where your leaflets will be delivered.
You can and should use online marketing methods to get new clients and keep yourself in business no matter what restrictions are implemented but leaflet distribution is something you shouldn't overlook.
Leaflet distribution has proven to be a helpful tool for many businesses that need to be able to provide their services through the time when restrictions are in place but might have a hard time reaching people in their local area.
Vet Clinics, GP surgeries and even restaurants can and should operate during this time.
So can you deliver leaflets in London during lockdown? Absolutely. And it is something you should consider using in case of a local lockdown in your London area.
