The ability to deliver and manage applications with more flexibility on a lower cost curve is key. For example, Walmart is adding small fulfillment centers beside their stores that use automated bots to retrieve goods for online orders. Some of these fulfillment centers will also have automated pickup points for customers and delivery drivers to quickly grab orders. For example, e-commerce platform Freshop provides a consumer-facing app and a fulfillment app that communicate seamlessly, allowing a frictionless ordering process for customers and a simple fulfillment process for pickers and delivery personnel. As consumers have increasingly welcomed the convenience and safety of same-day delivery and curbside pickup, retailers have homed in on improving their last-mile delivery capabilities. Individual stores have become fulfillment centers with pickers scouring the aisles for consumer orders.

CRM, which is powered principally by first-party data, or customer data that the company owns (with the consumer’s consent, of course), is the driving force for initiatives like coupons, personalization, or email marketing. Now, finding your perfect match may be less about chance and more about data and algorithms.

Will lower resistance to transparency for health reasons spread to other areas?

If this new benchmark is met, it will recuperate the £1.8 billion decline in ad spend reported in 2020 and could pave the way for a healthy 7.7% additional rise in 2022. To help marketers keep on top of what this means for them, their jobs and their industry, we’re collecting together the most valuable and impactful stats in this roundup, updated regularly since 20th March 2020. Of course, this has wide-ranging ramifications for marketing and advertising – as well as a number of other sectors like travel, entertainment and FMCG. Physical meetings in office spaces are now replaced with online collaboration tools with capability to deliver real-time experiences (live-streaming conversation, white board ideation, chatbot helpdesk). To manage isolation, consumers are using digital to connect, learn and play—and they will continue to.

In addition, NLP techniques can allow regulators to unlock rich sources of data that may have been previously underutilized. While consumers were concerned about making their monthly debt payments for many products (credit cards, auto loans, small-dollar loans, etc.), for consumers who experienced a sudden loss of income, making their monthly mortgage payment was of particular concern.

For example, during the last week of July 2019, 2.7 million people flew through TSA checkpoints in the U.S., compared to 751,000 during the same week in 2020. While I believe the future of travel will be positive, there’s no denying the economic impact. We will see many smaller and independent players struggle amongst an increase in acquisitions, consolidation, and fierce competition.

We had such a blast that we came up with the idea of opening it up to our community,” says Paloma Wool’s founder Paloma Lanna. “During this time, I think a brand’s existing product mix had a lot to do with their growth during 2020 and COVID. Businesses with comfort clothing and athleisure as their main offering are crushing it right now. For us, we couldn’t keep sweatpants in stock— and that’s not typically a huge part of our business,” says Max.

Influencers have seen consistently declining engagement rates since coronavirus started hitting hard in North America, and there’s no current sign of improvement. With drinking at home on the rise, Alcohol brands are seeing a slight increase in engagement on social. Hotels & Resorts saw an epic spike in Twitter engagement in early March but are returning to their pre-pandemic engagement rates. Higher Ed saw an enormous spike in late March but is now leveling out closer to pre-pandemic engagement rates. Financial Services and Higher Ed saw some of the most dramatic spikes of engagement in the middle of March but have returned to pre-pandemic engagement rates. Facebook engagement rates officially hit their 2020 low in late April with an average engagement rate per post across all industries of 0.053%.

This is particularly important as consumers have adopted new platforms as the norm. As the recovery takes hold, companies must take a second look at the resiliency of their production and transportation networks.
