So … good news and bad news. The bad news is: the months and years ahead will present marketers and brand managers with high stakes, tight budgets, and a vastly expanded need for consumers to connect their ever-changing values, needs, and emotional states with authentic and bold, yet humble brands. The good news is: the quarantine as created history’s largest consumer research panel. Literally everybody is online right now, and here’s never been more consumer data available to answer the big questions brands are asking themselves about how to position themselves in the new world we’re seeing emerge and shift day after day.

But while plentiful, that data is scattered across many sources, often behind the closed, Golden doors of Silicon Valley giants, and – perhaps most discouraging- is in formats (video, text, etc.) that are extremely unstructured, hence very challenging to parse from a technical standpoint.

This is the new arms race for brands: either developing or accessing AI-driven consumer insights tools that considerably raise the bar in thedepth of understanding of what consumers think and want
