Top Trends in Digital Marketing to Drive Growth in 2021, Presented by Pinterest

This event is over.

Over the last 12 months, brands have become more reliant on digital strategies than ever before. Mobile and e-commerce became a mainstay. QR codes made a comeback. And technology was leveraged in new and different ways to power consumer connection and engagement when face-to face interaction was no longer an option. After a year nobody saw coming, how do we predict what comes next?

Join us for this virtual event, presented by Pinterest, to hear from top brands, marketing thought leaders, and industry experts exploring the emerging trends and technologies that will drive your digital strategies in 2021. Sessions will offer a window into the future on key themes, consumer behaviors, the role of technology, and why marketers must be ready to adapt a mindset of reinvention.

LOOKING FURTHER WITH FORD: A TRENDS REPORT

As we barrel into 2021 and look forward to a post-pandemic world, it’s clear that the changes brought about by COVID-19 have changed us – but to what degree? 2020 was a year no one saw coming. COVID-19 wrought economic, political and emotional chaos, testing the limits of individuals, families, healthcare systems, and whole sectors of societies. Ford and other companies are keenly interested to know what changes will stick long after COVID is in our rearview mirror. And, while no one can predict the future, that doesn’t mean we can’t prepare for it.

In this session, Ford Chief Futurist Sheryl Connelly will share the brand’s 2021 “Looking Further with Ford Trends Report” and explore how consumers are adapting to life during a pandemic and just how resilient people can be in finding ways to cope and adapt.

WHAT’S TRULY IRL? A CONVERSATION ABOUT VIRTUAL INFLUENCERS

Virtual influencers have become a trend (search: Lil Miquela) and some even say that virtual influencers are the future of influencer marketing. But the reality is that virtual influencers are still rare and unusual to the general public, since their “personalities” are entirely fictional yet they act like real influencers. One thing is certain: virtual influencers can immediately draw attention to your brand. In this session, Jorge Almeida, Sr. Digital Marketing Manager at Avocados From Mexico, will discuss virtual influencers and how they can be used to tell brand stories. Because at the end of the day, if what we see on Instagram is edited, filtered, and posed – then what is real? Is a real person's highly filtered version of "real life" much different from virtual reality anyway?
