Jason Kempin/Getty Images Bloomberg's Consumer Comfort Index gained to 47.8 last week from 45.1, notching its biggest increase in more than 11 years. The gauge now sits 13.1 points from its March trough, but remains 19.5 points from its January highs.

Communicating With Customers During the ‘New Normal’ of Coronavirus

The COVID-19 crisis has changed how organizations market and consumers react. The “new norm” is far from normal though, and a new future — a new way of staying in touch with customers or, in the case of nonprofits, with donors — is quickly emerging. Building lasting relationships with customers and staying connected to them has never been more important. For marketers, this new future requires us to rethink how we communicate with customers.

Can’t find coins? They’re the latest in short supply amid pandemic

First, it was toilet paper and hand sanitizer. Those were among the first items to fly off the shelves as COVID-19 took hold, prompting stay-at-home orders and the closure of nonessential businesses. Then came the meat shortage, and a persistent lack of surface wipes. The latest commodity to come up short? Pocket change — the stuff we carry in pockets and wallets, stash in nightstands, jars and the niches in our cars. Banks around the U.S. are running low on pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters,...

Funeral homes with online price lists charge 30% less, analysis says

Death isn’t cheap — and grief doesn’t pair well with comparison shopping. Such was the calculus behind a California law pushing the funeral industry toward greater price transparency, which passed in 2013. As everyone, sooner or later, must die — and the average full-service funeral costs more than $7,000 — federal law already required funeral homes to provide detailed price lists to customers who walk through their doors. California’s law propelled that into the 21st century by requiring price ...
