After months of decline, consumer perceptions about their safety are improving around the world. Consulting firm Deloitte reports that more than half of consumers (53 percent) globally feeling safe going to the store. In the U.S., that number jumped from 51 percent in late December to 64 percent in March of 2021.
While consumers feel less anxious, Deloitte also notes that some behaviors are not likely to return to pre-pandemic patterns any time soon. People will still prefer to consume at home rather than venture out to new locations or large events.
In this time of transition, successful marketing campaigns will help consumers feel more confident about where to go. Geomarketing plays a crucial role in communicating that confidence.
