COVID-19 Survival Toolkit: Innovative Marketing

Kicking off our Experts to Entrepreneurs webinar series, marketing expert Jose Martins from HubSpot for Startups and co-founder of ClinicSense, Daniel Ruscigno, began the conversation on the importance of marketing during a crisis and how to do it right.

Marketing Through Uncertain Times

In the first half an hour, Jose focused on three areas:

1.      Integrating an offence strategy to your existing defensive stance

2.      Why empathy and value creation are crucial in your communication strategies

3.      Cash preservation verses cash optimization and why one is better than the other

Following suit, Daniel spoke about his own Clinic Management Software company coming to the realization that if all of their customers were required to be closed, there would firstly be a significant decline in account openings. Secondly, as core features of the service were no longer valuable to their clients, there would also be an increase in account closures. In 20 minutes, Daniel walked us through how their team worked to pivot their value proposition to better support their client community and reduce churn.
