The latest update on First Move and COVID-19

Like all companies, we are closely monitoring the impact that Covid-19 is having.

We are working closely with our suppliers and partners to ensure that we respond effectively to the COVID-19 outbreak in order to minimise its impact on our customers and colleagues.

Working within government guidance, we have ensured that we are able to maintain effective operations, whilst many of our colleagues work remotely.

We understand that you may have questions about how your business is going to operate whilst this pandemic is ongoing.  We are open for business and taking every precaution to ensure that we can deliver safely for our customers.

We have put in place a number of measures to ensure the welfare of our employees which include.

  • The ability to work from home if their role allows them to do so
  • Daily communication to all staff on any changes
  • Regular calls to staff working from home to check on their well-being
  • Social distancing and thorough hygiene procedures where necessary for employees required to be present on site
  • A new shift pattern for our production teams to maximise safety whilst maintaining our operations

Our commitment to you is that we will work with you to ensure that we do everything we can to help you to operate during these current extreme circumstances.

As new information becomes available, we will react accordingly and we will keep you updated.

Thank you for your patience and understanding at what is a challenging time for us all.

Direct Mail Marketing During The Coronavirus Recession

These certainly are unprecedented times we’re living in. Businesses all over the country are experiencing uncertainty and reviewing their marketing wondering how best to reach out to their customers or even if they should at all.

If you cut your marketing efforts now you could do your business damage that lasts well beyond the pandemic. This is the time to reach out to your existing customers – they know your brand, they’ve bought from you before and they’re the most likely to buy from you again, now or in the future. But how do you deliver your message? They need to know you’re still open for business!

One thing we can be sure of is that more and more people – in the short term at least – are going to be at home waiting for the mail to arrive. Where direct mail sets itself apart is its ability to create a connection with the recipient and to put your message directly in a customer’s hands. We know that mail makes your customer feel valued and that it enhances the perception of your brand.

When you combine this with research that shows direct advertising mail spends on average 17 days in the home (be honest, we all have that coffee table where we leave the mail). This presents a real opportunity to refresh the connection you have with your customers and their households.

We’re very much open for business as usual, so why not give us a call on 01494 885490 or fill in our online contact form to discuss how we can support your marketing efforts in the coming weeks.
