Post Christmas blues, cold dark nights, resolutions not being met – whatever the reason, consumers are feeling sad.

So why not cheer up your audiences with a little nod to chasing the blues away. You could entice with retail therapy, or deliver great content to add a little cheer and even signposting or partner with mental health organisations to give that additional support. Being mindful of the wellbeing of your audiences has never been so important.
