We would love to know the potential of Digital Marketing industry in India and how important can it be for the country’s progress as well!
The future of the Digital Marketing industry in India is promising. With the increasing number of active internet users in India expected to climb to 666 million, we will be witnessing an aggressive shift to digital from traditional marketing.
The ease of doing business brought by digital marketing is unparalleled across industries. From small to large-scale businesses, everyone has benefited from online advertising during the COVID times, which has made even more people realise the advantages of digital.
How advantageous, can the upcoming technology of 5G can be for the advertising industry?
Digital Marketing keeps finding engaging formats to leverage. Short-form videos, rich media innovations, AR, VR and Metaverse, are all part of technological innovations that can be seamlessly integrated into a brand’s marketing strategy, provided we have better data connectivity.
With 5G in view, advertisers can serve the audience with more engaging content than ever.
Is the combination of 5G technology and the advertising industry going to help the businesses or going to make the competition more tough for them.
5G technology, without a doubt, will give the advertising industry a boost in terms of developing new content formats. However, the competition among brands will continue to rise as more brands want to break the clutter and be the first to make the most of the technology.

Google vs social media platforms: which one do you think is more beneficial for the businesses and why?
An effective marketing strategy would have a mix of Google Ads and Social Media platforms. While we have a large number of our audience present on social media platforms, we can’t ignore the fact that many people search for any product or service on Google.
“Meta” is a big platform for advertising, so we would like to know more about Meta, it’s upcoming features which are paid and how is it going to affect the businesses?
We are yet to go full Metaverse. Internet users are always looking for personalisation and a more immersive experience, and Metaverse is here to offer just that. Recently, we have witnessed a lot of brands creating their own virtual experiences for their customers. However, to fully use the technology, the equipment needed for support is still not accessible to a significant chunk of the audience.
