The current state of the world leads to a period of uncertainty in the realm of digital advertising. Depending on where your company or your clients are positioned, the effects of COVID-19 are either having tremendous or horrible impacts on standard business performance. For those on the latter side, this is a time where advertisers are seeing budgetary shifts, paused platforms, and a whole array of other changes to navigate the new quarantine landscape. If you find yourself in this group of advertisers, below are a few methods to ensure that you bring back lost performance and are ready to hit the ground running as life returns to normal (whenever that may be).

With a shifting consumer landscape, goals may need to be shifted to meet the new demands and target the user where they will actually be.
