Positive engagement and interaction with consumers can seem increasingly elusive as the pandemic drives new customer behaviour and exposes new priorities. What do customers want? Personalization is a given. And so is connection that offsets isolation; facts to clear out the fog of misinformation; and intellectual adventure in lieu of the physical activities no longer possible in wide-spread quarantines. People are turning once more to the news sources they trusted from decades past. Magazines like TIME and Forbes are resurfacing in the public consciousness in a way we haven’t seen for decades. As the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism’s Nic Newman writes in his preface to the 2020 Digital News Report, “journalism matters and is in demand again.”
Experts like Northwestern University’s professor of Integrated Marketing and Communications Candy Lee are telling us that the COVID-19 pandemic is shifting what creates long-term loyalty in customers.
“I think trust is established in a variety of ways,” Dr. Lee muses. “Being able to give content that is engaging to the reader that says, ‘this is something that I know you want’ is important.”
