Without a doubt, 2020 was a year most of us are eager to put squarely in the rear-view mirror — while stomping down on the accelerator. That said, there are lessons to be learned from the past 12 months, particularly as they pertain to marketers’ abilities to capture and maintain the attention of a target audience.

As we have collectively relearned how to live our lives, maintain social connections and work in an increasingly digital world, several trends emerged that promise to influence our future, COVID-19 or not.

Here are five such digital trends to watch in 2021:

  • The Disinformation Dilemma
  • Live, but with a Long Tail
  • Data and Privacy
  • Entertainment is Greater than Gaming
  • Agility
