Brands share free giveaways for their customers during these difficult times. Don't miss the Shutterstock one.
As the world stands united against Coronavirus, by taking care of the safety measures, some brands are sharing the email to their customers, and this strategy just might push the customer relationship bar to the next level is my personal opinion. I have my contributor accounts set up with a lot of brands, I earn through a few of them and others are for sharing content and affiliate links. I recently received an email from these 4 brands sharing their best wishes and it was a great feeling.
The email from the ASOS CEO in which he is trying to keep their customers informed about their current situation now I know that he might have not to handwritten this email, however, it certainly can bring the customer a bit closer to the brand. ASOS is an online fashion and cosmetic retailer. The company was founded in 2000 in London and with an experience of 19 years, it sells over 850 brands as well as its own range of clothing and accessories, and ships to all 196 countries. The email from the CEO said,
Dear ASOSers, The coronavirus impacts every person, every town, every nation and every business around the world. So, I think it's important to share some of the steps we're taking at ASOS to keep things running as normal as possible for you, so you can carry on making orders and receiving your ASOS deliveries. We're making decisions and acting quickly as we gain new facts. We're following official directives and advice. Most importantly, we're also protecting the safety of our team, customers, suppliers, delivery partners, and our communities at large. This is an uncertain time, but I want to reassure you of a few things we're doing. Our very own ASOSers are all working hard to ensure we keep giving you the service you know and love. Our fulfilment team is making every effort to ensure deliveries aren't affected, so you can keep on shopping without having to worry about not receiving your order. We'll also keep on inspiring and entertaining you with our content – we'll be on our channels 24/7 and the conversation with ASOS is always open. We're going to carry on doing us the best we can, and we hope you carry on doing you, whether you're social distancing, in self-isolation, or just trying to act more responsibly... continue to be your best self, stay connected, stay responsible and act with kindness. Thanks, Nick x Nick Beighton, ASOS CEO

Being one of the most successful digital platforms, it did not miss keeping in touch and sharing their regards with their audience. While the email communicated with the audience like the others but Team Etsy has also introduced 2 things to ease out the seller's life. Etsy has promised its users to invest $5,000,000 the next month to drive a smooth business for its sellers. And there is an extra grace period in case you are not able to pay on time. Here's what he email has to say:
To the Etsy community: We are all going through very trying times. As Etsy’s CEO, I’m acutely aware of the important role we play in the lives of our entire community. In times of crisis, small businesses and the self-employed face enormous financial challenges. This is the community that Etsy is built to support, because behind every purchase, there’s a person, not a factory. Etsy is here for you At times like these, we long to surround ourselves and those dear to us with objects that provide comfort, joy, and relief – a cozy blanket, a kids crafting kit, some calming candles. From self-care to workspace organization to games and toys, Etsy has it. But unlike other retailers, when you buy those items here, you’re directly making a difference in people’s lives. You can help small businesses Small businesses need support now more than ever, but supporting them can seem hard when visiting the local shopping district is discouraged. Simply choose to shop on Etsy. We have well over 2 million sellers open for business, often working out of their homes to create something that you’ll use and cherish everyday. a) Etsy will invest $5,000,000 over the next month to drive sustained business for sellers b) We will also provide a one month grace period to any seller who needs extra time paying their bills We believe these programs will meaningfully help sellers during these challenging times. We’re one community History has shown us that during times of greatest difficulty, we see the best of humanity. Our choices have the potential to meaningfully help those who need it most. Thank you for being a part of the Etsy community.

How will it benefit?
These emails have an emotional touch to them, communicating with the audience in such difficult times might not have a huge impact, but it definitely makes a difference to the customer.
Adding something extra:
I really loved the way how Shutterstock has gone a step forward to be thoughtful about their new business owners by sharing a collection of free images. That might really strike a chord in the customer's mind about the value the brand is providing to them.
