To reduce the impact of the COVID- 19 crisis on small and medium-sized businesses, PARC Communication specialists provided support and strengthened the general communication matters of the Organization of Small and Medium Enterprises Sector Development (ODIMM), under a contract with GIZ Moldova.
To inform SMEs on the importance of business digitization, during the COVID-19 crisis, in order to raise their awareness of the benefits and stages of this process.
Against the backdrop of restrictions imposed by COVID-19, both SMEs and consumers were motivated to digitize the promotion and purchase of products, but stereotypes did not allow this transition to be effective.
The agency developed a strategic communication plan and a creative concept, proposing two communication lines – SMEs and consumers, united by the same purpose, which motivate everyone to change their attention and thinking towards the possibilities and benefits of the digital environment. “Gândește digital – Dezvoltă-ți o afacere inteligentă!” and “Gândește digital – Cumpără online local!” The logo and visual identity were developed and was offered support to ODIMM communication activities:
