Trend 1: Post Demographic Consumerism

In the era of personalised mass marketing, brands need to look beyond the confines of demographics. Approach the consumer as a unique individual, not just a number.

New platforms are evolving that can connect creators for group projects and manage equitable remuneration.


Trend 7: Brands Fostering Community

A new generation of digital news providers is developing our appetite for depth and substance, but with real time relevance and flexible opt-in delivery.
