Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, digital growth in Singapore has immensely accelerated. This has brought lasting changes to Singaporean mothers’ digital behaviours. These changes include how they make daily decisions, such as choosing where to shop or when to browse Facebook.
Although these changes seem little for others, this affects the marketing of many brands. Especially those who have products and services that cater to young families.
