In response to the slump in demand and decreased sales arising from the COVID-19 induced economic challenges, many marketing teams have had their budgets slashed and their resources cut, thereby making the marketing function ineffective. This, together with the volatility in the marketplace and the constantly changing customer needs, present managers responsible for a variety of marketing activities with the difficulty of developing the most effective strategic marketing approaches during this recession. 

There are a variety of factors that influence the appropriateness of specific marketing strategies for a  company. These include the overall objective of the strategy, the availability of human and financial resources to implement the strategy, the geographical scope being considered and the elasticity of demand in the marketplace, to name a few.  Common to all strategies is that some kind of payback is required, in that every strategy should seek to provide a return on investment.
