The platform will share an “industry standard” 55% cut with creators which is the same figure Facebook grants to its influencers.

Facebook Launches Facebook Shops For E-commerce

To help small businesses Facebook launches Facebook Shops, a feature that will allow them to turn their profiles into digital storefronts. E-commerce is on the rise, so this is an excellent opportunity for these companies to set up their online stores on the platform and communicate directly with their customers through Whatsapp, Messenger and Instagram Direct. 

Facebook also ensures that they will not store information about individuals and stores they visit unless they give permission.

Facebook Launches Audio Calling App CatchUp

Although there are many calling apps these days, what sets this new Facebook platform apart is that it is audio-only. CatchUp will allow users to make calls with up to 8 people and let them know when a friend or family member is “Ready to Talk” with on-screen notifications. This new app will not require a Facebook account, as it will use your phone contact list.

Google Ads Creates Retail Category Feature

Google Ads has added a new reporting feature for e-commerce users that includes the Retail Category performance depending on where the ad was displayed: in Shopping or Search. While this information was available on the platform, it will now be easier for retailers to obtain these metrics without having to plan specific campaign names to identify them.

Instagram Allows Users To Create Messenger Rooms 

Facebook extends the use of its video call platform, Messenger Rooms, to Instagram. From now on you’ll be able to create rooms from the Instagram Direct section and invite anyone to join. Since messenger is a separate app, once you start a room with other users on Instagram you will have to switch to the Facebook messaging platform.

Google Lifts Its Coronavirus Ad Band  

Due to criticism from Democratic lawmakers, Google will begin to lift its ban on coronavirus-related advertising. Until now no government entity, hospital, NGO could launch ads related to the current pandemic on the platform.

For now, Google is still working on ways to allow these specific institutions to run ads related to coronavirus.

Marketing Strategies For Cleaning Companies During The Coronavirus Outbreak

As Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases worldwide continue to rise, businesses have been struggling to maintain their operations… except for commercial cleaners. 

Professional cleaning of all kinds of facilities, from healthcare to food production, has taken on new urgency. Concerns over the rapid spread of the virus have put cleanliness first in everyone’s mind, creating explosive demand for commercial cleaning services.

Check out this graph measuring interest in the search terms “commercial cleaning” and “office cleaning” on Google. A value of 100 is peak popularity. “Commercial cleaning” went from a 75% interest in the past 12 months to a 100% interest rate in the last month, with “office cleaning” increasing from 50% to 90%.

Here’s another example of search results for these and related terms in the United States for the past 90 days:

While demand is skyrocketing, Coronavirus also creates new challenges for marketers, who must switch from their traditional marketing channels and activities to approaches focused on online platforms that can help their businesses survive for the long haul. 

Here are some of the marketing strategies we’ve been implementing with our commercial cleaning clients to retain current customers and to ensure a steady flow of new customers during the Coronavirus outbreak:

1. Communication with your current and potential customers

Retention is critical at this time and is crucial as a cleaning company to keep your clients updated, to set expectations, and to let them know you’re still in business and ready to serve them.

It is crucial to maintain communication with existing clients, reminding them of the power of your products and services and take advantage of the opportunity that some customers will be interested in adding more days to their cleaning contracts. 

Communication with your current franchisees and employees is also essential since they could be afraid of losing their income. They are putting their health on the line to continue working, so they should feel a sense of support from the company and motivation to keep moving forward. 

2. Content is king 

During the Coronavirus pandemic, content marketing is one of the most effective ways to stay in touch with current and potential customers, promoting your products and services. 

Generate valuable information such as recommendations and cleaning protocols for businesses and individuals to avoid the spread of the virus and to keep their workplaces as clean as possible. 

Through content marketing, you have the opportunity to showcase the value of your company differentiating from others with the competitive value of your products and the awards and recognitions your business has received so far. 

Videos from your senior staff are a great way to gain the trust of your audience, as well as educational infographics and blog posts; all shared through social media or email newsletters. 

3. Optimize your Google My Business profile

Google My Business is a free and easy-to-use tool for companies to manage their online presence across Google. It is a simple way to make your business more discoverable, but most importantly, to stand out from the crowd.

Having a fully optimized listing in Google My Business is crucial for local SEO (search engine optimization) because it enables your listing to appear in local search results for queries specific to your products or services. 

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, many businesses have updated their profiles with their current business hours, clarifying closures, and limited service, as well as any other changes in their schedule due to ongoing restrictions.

4. An opportunity with online advertising

Many PPC advertisers are pausing their campaigns amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Google Adwords is usually very competitive in the commercial cleaning industry, and the cost per click can generally be very high. However, that’s not the case right now. Costs have come down, fewer competitors are advertising on Google Ads, and there’s a high demand for keywords like “disinfectant,” “cleaning services,” and “office cleaning.”  

Get ahead of the game and use this opportunity to position yourself at the top of Google search results.

5. Video conferencing with your potential customers

If you’ve mostly done your business in person until now, you already know you’ve got to adapt… fast.

People across the United States are firing up video conferences to relocate meetings due to Coronavirus.

Commercial cleaners take notice; this is an excellent strategy for these challenging times. There are video conferencing options, with Zoom, Google Hangouts Meet, and Skype among the most popular. 

 

Conclusion

The Coronavirus has affected the economy worldwide, and of course, we hope it will end soon with the least possible further impact.

While many businesses are affected by the pandemic, there are opportunities for those providing services in renewed demand. In these challenging times, no opportunities should be overlooked. 

Despite the fact that many customers are canceling or putting their contracts on hold, we’ve never seen such high demand with the cleaning companies we are working with, not only for recurring services but for one-time services as well. 

Use these strategies to build your business, and if you’re looking for experts to help, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re ready to take on the challenge of building your commercial cleaning marketing strategy.

Welcome to a new edition of Marketing Updates With Motion Ave! Google dominates the headlines this week, from new tech to phaseouts! Curious? Read on!  

Parallel Tracking Now Mandatory For Google Ads

As of March 31, all Google Ads using video must incorporate parallel tracking. This function prevents slowdowns for users by causing their browsers to handle data requests from click measurement providers in the background, while they can get straight to (and through) the ads. Parallel tracking is already mandatory for Search, Shopping, and Display campaigns.

This feature creates simulations using activity across the web from the past 7 days to test such adjustments as higher targets and budgets. While it’s not psychic, this kind of pattern analysis is an unprecedented insight to help marketers budget and price.

R.I.P. Chrome Apps: 2013-2022

Chrome apps are on death row- support ends for all desktop OSes by the end of this year, and Chrome OS gives the boot in 2022. While some of the community is undoubtedly displeased, this move doesn’t signal a wholesale elimination of independent and open-source development: Chrome Extensions aren’t going anywhere.

Get to know all about the phase out process here: https://blog.chromium.org/2020/01/moving-forward-from-chrome-apps.html

https://www.pcworld.com/article/3514529/google-will-wind-down-chrome-apps-starting-in-june.html

No, Seriously, No Cookies: We Mean It This Time

Chrome is going on a deeper diet than just cutting Apps- Google has announced plans to end support for third-party cookies within two years. Assuming they follow through, this represents major action on Google’s public sentiments of committing to greater privacy. If implemented as thoroughly as Google promises, this will be a cataclysmic change for digital marketers- one of the core sources of user data and activity metrics will go entirely dark.

Prepare for the analytics apocalypse here:   https://techcrunch.com/2020/01/14/google-wants-to-phase-out-support-for-third-party-cookies-in-chrome-within-two-years/

Facebook Confirms It Won’t Ban Political Ads

Facebook confirms that it will not limit the way political ads target its audience and voters. Many consider this a bad decision, as it still does not limit the lies and misinformation in those ads. The only solution the platform offers is to give users more control tools so they can manage the amount of ads they see.
