We polled over 1,000 marketing executives and more than 11,000 consumers to discover which trends are shaping interactions with brands the most this year. As we reach the halfway mark since the report was released, the signature trends we studied continued to evolve.
In this new blog series, we will focus on one trend per post, offering fresh perspectives along with a look on what’s ahead.
Most importantly, we want your insights on what’s new and notable for each trend in your industry.
Be sure to share your insights below. Your perspective could end up informing one of our 2023 trends!
