eBay has launched a new marketing campaign that plays on the post-pandemic lockdown fever that has gripped America. “Survivalist Coyote Peterson and a team of style experts are helping shoppers tackle their next big adventure – reentering the world after a year of lockdown,” eBay explained.
For example, eBay said sales of inflatable mattresses were up 50% year-over-year and sofa bed sales were up eight times higher than home offices.
