Reaching International Customers During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted how businesses engage with international clients. Learn how a comprehensive digital marketing strategy can help your company reach customers around the world.

For companies that depend on international clients and audiences, the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed what was once “business as usual.” Travel restrictions and trade show cancellations have made it almost impossible for some organizations to continue growing their businesses. While the recent approval of new vaccines and relaxing of local quarantine guidelines offers hope for a return to pre-pandemic life in the near future, many companies have no more time to spare and must do all they can to continue to safely reach and engage with their international clients.

For these businesses, implementing a comprehensive digital marketing strategy can be a gamechanger.

Helping Local Businesses Reach Global Audiences

According to the Office of the United States Trade Representative, Maryland-based businesses exported $12.1 billion of Made-in-America goods around the world in 2018. In 2016, exports from Maryland supported an estimated 45,000 jobs, making it the 29th largest state exporter of goods. Most importantly, small- and medium-sized companies generated nearly one-third of Maryland’s total exports in 2016.1 

These same small- and medium-sized businesses are the ones that have experienced the most serious impacts associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
