Nothing in living memory has impacted Digital Marketing Agencies in Stafford the world in quite the way that COVID-19 pandemics have. There are many other global incidents such as recessions and depressions. Tragic as this incident, none of which have global impact of sudden COVID-19 has had.

In conversation with our major global IT clients, I have observed the following trends, many of which are already in play but has since rapidly accelerated by the pandemic. With restrictions on travel and social distance where we have seen an increasing demand for the following;

It has seen explosive growth, Zoom has gone from 10 million users in December to 300 million in April, with Microsoft Team now sees more than 75 million daily active users on the platform. Many employers and employees are aware of how they can be efficiently achieved by working remotely. I hope that many of these tools will still be used once a pandemic has passed. Indeed, having recently spoke with several health workers up front, while initially hesitant about the use of video conferencing in their profession, they all expressed shock them in an effective way and how they will continue to use the right time in the future.
