As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, consumer behavior and attitudes have been radically altered, upending corporations’ marketing techniques and plans. Now, over two years after the worldwide epidemic began, we’re only beginning to gain a better understanding of the immediate and long-term consequences of these transformations, as well as how businesses must adapt to the ‘new normal.’

Over the last two years, we’ve witnessed seismic shifts in how businesses function and communicate. Marketing underwent tremendous transformations, spanning from communications and advertising to retail channels, customer interaction, and other factors. Some companies made small operational modifications, while others fully restructured their business approach.

As we reach the second year of the pandemic, we have a better knowledge of which changes are temporary and which will remain for years.

  • Your Supply Chain Has Turned Into a Marketing Asset Diagram

Consumers are getting increasingly sensitive about the origins of their items and how they are made.

The outbreak raised worldwide environmental consciousness, with 87 percent of BCG survey respondents stating that businesses “should integrate environmental factors into their goods, services, and operations to a greater level than they did in the past.”

The supply chain, where branding and operations are tightly connected, is one of the most likely areas for this to happen.

“Transparent supply networks reduce reputational risk while also enhancing a company’s image. It also helps to attract and retain people who wish to work with moral organizations.” In an interview with Lucy Flinter, CEO of Zero Procure,

MIT researchers revealed that “consumers may be willing to spend 2 – 10% more for things from enterprises that provide improved supply chain transparency,” in addition to increasing brand strength.

As a consequence, it is without a doubt something in which to invest. However, how can you persuade clients that your supply chain is flawless?

  • Digital Gatherings are the Gatherings of the Future

During the outbreak, the first important change we noted was a global movement to remote work. While Zoom swept the globe in the preceding two years, a flurry of follow-up innovations has made a digital connection even more thrilling. Brand builders and marketers have a huge opportunity to interact with customers in new and engaging ways.


  • Customer Experience is a Digital and Physical Hybrid

The outbreak sparked a tidal wave of digitization from enterprises forced to pivot once physical trade was shut down, which is almost too obvious to mention.

How large is it?

The global eCommerce industry will be valued at $4.89 trillion in 2021. This is up from $3.3 trillion in 2019, a 48 percent increase in only two years. Internet sales climbed from 13.6 percent to 19.5 percent of overall retail sales within the same time period. This trend is expected to continue in the next five years and beyond.

The marketing trends that will stick with us and alter after COVID-19

It is reasonable to say that we now have a strong knowledge of the five primary disruptive changes that will affect consumer attitudes and behaviors in the aftermath of the pandemic:

Online shopping is here to stay.

Whole client segments have been forced to purchase differently as a result of physical separation and stay-at-home practices. E-commerce and omnichannel services’ fast adoption shows no signs of stopping. According to a recent study, the pandemic would result in a 169 percent increase in e-commerce revenues from new or low-frequency consumers. In addition, the vast majority of customers who have increased their use of digital and omnichannel services such as home delivery, curbside pickup, or social media purchasing intend to do so in the future.

Loyalty to a brand is diminishing.

As a result of the general shift in behavior in response to COVID-19, brand loyalty has been fractured. Almost half of the buyers are trying out new brands, and one-third are adding new private-label items to their shopping list. This emphasizes the importance of marketers quickly recognizing when customers transfer brands. Brands that increase promotional activity to strengthen consumer connections will profit from the recovery cycle. According to Forrester Research, business-to-consumer (B2C), marketers will spend 15% more on loyalty and retention marketing in 2021, while cutting back on the product or performance-based marketing.

It is necessary to strike a balance between sustainability and cleanliness.

There will be a strong desire to keep contactless activities alive and well, such as increasing retail self-checkout usage. Reusable packaging will continue to lose ground versus single-use packaging. On the other hand, sustainability goals will not be abandoned, and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies and retailers will continue to be dedicated to long-term decarbonization.

Localized advertising

As more people migrate out of cities and into suburbs and rural regions, localized marketing will become more important. According to Accenture, two-thirds of customers prefer to shop at local stores or purchase more locally created things. Localized content and customization will be more important than ever in order to develop a relationship with the audience. Localization will accelerate marketing automation and data mining as marketers strive to have a better understanding of ROI.
