Well I'm sure I'm not the only one that's finding this 3rd lock-down more of a slog. But importantly most businesses seem to have far better adjusted to working remotely or safely with PPE and spacing, etc. To date, there seems less of a drop in business activity compared with the severe economic shock of the 1st lock-down, March 2020.
Where needed phone transfer systems have been put in place if office receptions have been unable to re-open Covid safe. Therefore reaching prospects has become easier and bit less reliant on emails. Online noise pre-Covid was already very loud but with the widespread shift to remote working, online noise got even more amplified.
Going forward, I think the human approach will be really quite refreshing after all the time spent out of the office or wherever your regular place of work is.
With the ongoing vaccination program really helping to accelerate traction out of lock-down, plus the government's recent provisional road map out of this, good times are starting to look more like a possibility sooner rather than later. Spring is in the air and economic growth looks like making a comeback too! Which means:
There might be a great V shaped rebound, especially for some sectors that will finally be permitted to properly open. For those lucky enough to have experienced full salary or incomes throughout the pandemic, there's a lot of pent up demand just waiting to splurge or spend at least some of their increasing forced savings pot.
There are good grounds for optimism that this time we will get back to at least near normal conditions so businesses can function as they should and reach their pre-Covid potential again.
Time to plan, kick start and ramp up your prospecting activities.

Have a good Spring.
