How Postmates Is Navigating a World Where Everything's Delivered

Marketing chief Eric Edge on the brand's recent work, and how the category is evolving

Great marketing is about creating moments that matter to your customers. Moments that increase engagement, spark a conversation, and build a lasting relationship. Moments that reach them personally, whoever they are, wherever they go. Salesforce gives creators the tools to understand who their customers really are. Get started now.

It's not a bad time to be in the delivery business. Postmates has seen its volumes surge during the Covid-19 pandemic, as many consumers prefer delivery over visits to stores and restaurants—and many eateries still aren't open anyway. In this week's On Brand, Postmates marketing chief Eric Edge tells us how the company is dealing with the increased demand, how the category is changing, and what tone Postmates is aiming for with its recent creative advertising.
