Infographic Customer Survey - How Has Covid Affected SME Marketing in 2020?

It’s been a tough year for most of us.

Between the ongoing pandemic and the upcoming Brexit deadlines, almost every SME in the country has had to face challenges and make changes to the way they run their businesses.

And with so many unexpected shifts in consumer behaviour and customer buying habits, plenty of smaller businesses have had to radically rethink the way they connect with their customers and reach new audiences.

So what exactly has Covid-19 meant for SME marketing this year?

We wanted the facts – so we went straight to the source.

In November 2020, we asked more than 1,100 Print-Print customers to take part in our biggest survey yet: a 20-part questionnaire designed to dig deep into the most important marketing problems and solutions that businesses like yours are dealing with.

We’ve now collected and processed all of that data – and we’re ready to share our insights back to the huge number of businesses that helped us compile these essential marketing insights.

So if you’re one of the 1,100 businesses that took part in our survey – thank you!

You can check out our handy infographic summarising the key findings below. you are welcome to download it. (see the links at the bottom)
