With retail struggling in light of CoVID-19, one might think that e-commerce is currently king – and while there’s some truth to that, it is not entirely accurate. CoVID-19 has brought with it a devastating hit to our economy, and inevitably, consumers are more concerned about the future and are spending less on “nice-to-haves” – those items we don’t typically need, but want.
As a marketing agency, it’s imperative that the businesses you support do well, so it’s worth taking a look at the current demand for their product offerings. When spending time and money acquiring new customers, it’s a good idea to look at macro trends since the stability of an industry could have a drastic secondary impact on your agency later. We thought we’d do some of the heavy lifting and outline some industries where you may find surprising new business right now – industries that are thriving despite the global pandemic.

While there certainly seems to be a theme amongst these industires, (whether it’s health and safety, survival, or fitness), the order isn’t exactly what we’d expect. A 652% increase in Bread Machines compared with just a 182% increase in Health Monitors, for example, seems surprising at first glance. Then again, 2020 has been full of surprises thus far!
August is upon us, which means we are well on our way to shaking off this terrible thing they call “2020”! It’s been a year to remember, and so much has happened that it’s hard to keep track of what day of the week it is any more. Our team, like many others, has been […]
