Marketing -- In the times of the rogue virus (Comment)
Consumers and businesses are in flux, especially during the past many months, as they stagger around trying to react to the rogue virus Covid-19. Many companies who have tentative mindsets and lean budgets seem to have slashed marketing communication budgets to a whimper, as they slide back to a cautious 'show me the demand' syndrome. Brand relationships cannot be turned on and off. When brands go silent in times of crisis they shouldn't be surprised if consumers forget them as well. Unless they find ways to engage and stay relevant, the current scenario can be a horror movie. They will just have to watch demand sliding over the precipice.
