Gone are the days when we were stuck with a comparatively nanoscopic 1000 songs - likely on repeat. Presently, we’ve been blessed with music streaming apps like Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube Music to name only a few. Even TikTok has a role to play in the music we choose to stream. Thanks to these apps, our journeys with music have grown exponentially with thousands of ways to discover new songs, genres and artists.

This blog has been introduced in true Reddit fashion. TL;DR stands for “Too Long; Didn’t Read” and is conventionally followed by a short and sweet summary of whatever bit of writing was deemed too long to read. This blog might be a bit more on the lengthy side but I assure you, it’s 100% worth the read.
If 2020 were a rom-com, it would involve two attractive, young people meeting by chance online, going on romantic dates and getaways online (don’t ask us about the logistics), having an online feud only to get back “together” and eventually get married (probably online too) and live digitally ever after. I’m sure you don’t need to guess where you’d watch a rom-com like this: online too, right?
GWI has recently released a localised, South African report containing insights for one of the top drivers of the world’s economy: Food Shoppers. Food Shoppers are defined by GWI as “Cooking enthusiasts who are the main food shopper in their household.”
In GWI’s latest Connecting The Dots report, they speak about our relationship with online privacy as “digital citizens” and how that relationship has and still is evolving in an article called Data For Good. Good news: it’s not all negative. GWI covers the advantages that come with sharing your personal data along with key insights into how people feel about personal data sharing. Still, a relationship is maintained by two sides, and industries that work with consumers’ sensitive information should use it in a way that benefits both parties. Let’s take a look at how the world feels about this.

To claim that 2020 was a tough year for marketers is an understatement of note, to say the least. This year was hallmarked by significant trials and tribulations, a flux of trends and new behaviours that made it difficult for anybody to pinpoint exactly what was going on. On the flip side, this was also the year where the spirit of Ubuntu took global centre stage - as world leaders, organisations plus ordinary people came together and helped make the world a better place collectively.
Historically, mental health has been seen as something that should be swept discreetly under the proverbial carpet. Today, mental health remains an enigma to many people. Countless stigmas around it tend to drive those affected even closer to the deep end. These stigmas need to be demolished and safe environments need to be created that are nothing but supportive and understanding for those affected.
The success of any business lies in the ability to improve experience at every step of the customer journey. Measuring customer satisfaction helps brands to identify if they are aligned with the ongoing efforts of the organization to continue delivering value to customers. This also provides valuable insights about the quality of their customer care.

In social media, some advocating for your brand is very powerful. Advocates give their friends, families, and colleagues trusted advice that is more credible than traditional advertising. They defend a business against negative messaging, volunteer ideas for product and service improvements, and they do it all for free. While enterprises tend to reach out externally, the best advocates hide in plain sight - their employees.
TikTok has very much taken up the identity of being the home to Gen Z, the platform has attracted more diverse audiences looking for escapism during the lockdown, with 22% of parents with young children creating and uploading videos more on video-sharing sites because of the outbreak.
We can all agree 2020 has thrown a spanner into the works in everyone’s lives, from personal to work to how brands need to rethink their strategies and where consumers are spending more time these days. COVID 19 has brought radical change and new habits, opinions and perceptions.
