As Canadians have met their survival needs and stocked up on essentials, they are now adapting to life at home – working, school, cooking, exercise and entertainment. Canadians are developing new rituals, habits and rewiring their behaviours, some of which will last beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
Similarly, brands also need to adapt to survive. For brands to gain or retain an important role in the lives of their target consumers, it is critical to understand how consumer needs and mindsets are evolving.
Here are 3 of our most popular insight & planning approaches that are effective and well suited to our COVID-19 world.
