Things like, the way they spend extra time, how they shop, trying new activities and experimenting. Here are a few things to think about as you are looking at the rest of your 2020 budget.

Brands that go totally dark for the rest of 2020 could face revenue declines of up to 11% in 2021.

It takes up to 3 to 5 years of solid and consistent brand building effort to recover from extended “dark periods” of media.
