SAN JOSE, Calif. (June 11, 2020) – Despite a vibrant world dissipating into lockdown hibernation, there have been a good number of commercial beneficiaries meeting the need for creative distraction, inventive diversion or productive interaction.

Seed manufacturers and optics makers have been only too happy to satisfy the soaring demand for backyard bird feeders and bird watchers. TikTok has been working round-the-clock to help digitally savvy millennials create and share outrageous and engaging short-form videos about home “prison” life. And frustrated moms have been all over the Internet shopping for ways to engage bored children with arts, crafts, cooking and learning projects. 

According to the CMO Council, a global organization representing 16,000 marketing leaders in 10,000 companies worldwide, “opportunity breeds when there are transformational market needs.” While the world is in the midst of containing and emerging from the pandemic turmoil, a number of brands have benefitted from opportunities triggered by a constrained and restricted home-bound consumers and workforce.
