Business Standard

With the advent of the internet and smartphones, communication has been revolutionized. Gone are the days when people used to go to the markets physically, roamed around all day long to find some specific goods and services. That mode of shopping was lengthier, harder and tiring.

Despite all of these constraints, we still wouldn’t get the exact same thing that we have had anticipated as an ideal purchase. Another aspect is that in the past people probably did have plenty of time to kill, but in the current scenario where time is equated with money, we are left with no choice but to utilize the time in the best possible manner.

There was a time when companies, especially the big fish ones used to spend a major chunk, around 70% of their capital on marketing strategies. Yet the results and reach were not as efficient with proportion to the money and effort spent on marketing. The conventional means of marketing like television, radio, magazines, billboards, and brochures were pretty costly and still, they all were not as effective as modern-day digital marketing.

The reason behind this is the ratio of users. The modern statistics show that among mobile phone users, more or less 60 to 65 percent of users are using smartphones. And a major number also has access to the internet. So the whole world has shrunk to their palms where they carry their smartphones.

Freedom to explore more through digital marketing.

What happens now is that the users make a quick search through multiple search engines for the products or services they are looking for. They get a whole widespread list of similar products and services along with the substitutes that allow them to make a comparison and finally select the one that suits them from all angles, price, durability, and market.

From smartphones to gadgets, laptops to grocery, electronics to modern machines, all are being sold online. This has initiated a sense of competition among businesses and they are more than ever concerned in enhancing their online appearance.

They read the comments and interact with other people who are looking for some kind of commodities.
