It has been a hard time for businesses across the Caribbean and beyond, as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to take its toll. To help these local companies get back to business, Trend Media is giving away a digital advertising package valued at US$5,000 to qualified applicants.

Commencing on June 22, 2020, applicants will be required to fill out a form and detail the effects of the pandemic on their business in order to be selected to receive the four-part ultimate advertising package. The offer will be facilitated through Loop News which has over 13 million page views and three million monthly users. Awardees will receive a native story feature, as well as a standard banner ad design to facilitate a homepage take over and a guaranteed 350,000 views.

“At Trend Media, we are amplifying our commitment to helping SMEs in Jamaica and Barbados to adjust and return to this new digitally-led normal. With this initiative, companies will get the ability to gain exposure through our media house, Loop News,” stated Kishner Cowell, Group Head of Sales at Trend Media.

Research has shown that the most widely affected industries are those within the small and medium-sized enterprise bracket with a projected bounce back rate of only 47 per cent.

“COVID-19 is dramatically changing consumer and business behaviours and compelling companies to re-evaluate how contact points are leveraged and the benefits of using digital channels to support business continuity,” said Andrew Brown, Senior Marketing Manager, Trend Media.

On the up-side, every change creates room for more opportunities. Business leaders who act now by taking a proactive approach to their changing markets will do much better than those who don’t.
