Coupled with the product launch season and holidays, the quarter is the busiest period for the freight movements in any given year, but this time it is different.

From October 1 to 8, it is the ‘Golden Week’ holidays in China, when people travel back to their hometowns for a week-long vacation. On October 9, the supply chain from the factory of the world restarts along with the manufacturing units and rises up to the busiest period of the year.

Historically, the October – December quarter is the peak season for all modes of transport, and especially for air freight, due to the upcoming holidays in the Americas and Europe as well as the sheer amount of electronic product launch happens during this time.

In Pakistan, e-commerce has empowered local manufacturers to sell their products across the globe. This was not possible a decade ago because potential buyers abroad had not been introduced to the finished products. However, certain hurdles have hampered the growth of e-commerce in the country. These include a lack of public trust in online payments, the delivery of substandard goods, and delays in delivery.
The e-commerce industry is getting wings during the Coronavirus-pandemic period. When millions of people get stuck in their lives and the normals of life have been changed. With the new normal, this should be the time when millions of people are served by online stores.

Importance of Digital Marketing for courier companies:

The idea of digital marketing is growing day by day. Although it has been adopted by many industries, especially advertisement and sales, it is only now that some industries, such as shipping and courier are becoming more and more dependent on the virtual marketplace rather than the traditional market.

THE Ultimate market OUTREACH!
Outreach and brand awareness is the first reason why courier firms should engage in Digital Marketing. Take Facebook, Instagram, Linked In, Twitter, Pinterest, Whatsapp and Youtube as well as the smaller trends, and you have a social media room that encompasses more than a billion citizens across Pakistan, a company who is dealing in courier services in Pakistan should adopt this medium of marketing. More fundamentally, these platforms have the authority to push public opinion and get instant and frequent feedback from all the customers and consumers, and the general public which can eventually help us to forecast our future campaigns and also measure our previous results as well.

POWER OF Word of mouth
The main purpose here is to build systems for brand loyalty that inspire clients and ideally influencers to spread the word about your product. Brand loyalty programs can take the form of coupons given to consumers who post about your brand for their audiences and they will have better engagement and authenticity which can help us to get maximum reach.

Good Sales funnel is the key
Branding, publicity, leads, and sales can be handled by digital media alone it's just like a one window solution. Reputable online visibility with lots of followers, related advertising and a strong social media presence, and expansive website outreach, will jointly promote the services of a delivery firm, create leads and attract more consumers.

Time for results
Therefore, to have better outreach investing in digital marketing is undoubtedly a beneficial and wise choice. It is a fact that we live in a digital age where people from all age groups spend a major part of their day surfing through social media and other digital platforms, which has increased even more after COVID-19. Hence, the word of mouth generated through digital marketing about a brand is the most effective in today’s post COVID world.
