The 2020-Shock: Future of Advertising



Predicting the future of advertising has never been a hassle – but add a pandemic, ethical use of algorithms, changing practices in the e-commerce industry, social and environmental issues – predicting the future has just gotten a tad-bit harder.

When one thinks about it, predicting the future may be easy, but getting it spot-on is the concern.

So, what has COVID-19 disrupted and caused an upheaval? The e-commerce industry has seen a significant rise; new trends & experiences; and of course the rise in concern for ethical codes and values.

Let’s go back in time – a time where Google, Facebook, and Apple dominated the advertising world.

However, post Covid-19, it is evident that privacy, e-commerce, government laws and regulations, the inception of 5G – all of these combined are bound to disrupt the world.

One’s opinion can be, “Nothing beats Search and Mobile, why bother with anything else?” – Well, to answer, it is data-churning, algorithm, research, and of course appealing content and segmenting, targeting, and positioning through advertising.



The rise in e-commerce is not going to stop anytime soon – it has been a bang-on winner! From making consumers' lives easier to create a legacy on this – people’s needs of today have been formulated yesterday.

The next decade is certainly a mystery, no one can anticipate it – but the brands that have adapted to change, especially during the pandemic, have thrived in the industry. The ability and capability to accept and welcome change will elevate the brand and put it on a pedestal.
