Digital marketing keeps growing in importance as more and more people gain ready access to the internet. As technology has advanced and becomes ever more affordable, portable devices like smartphones have become ubiquitous throughout society and internet access is a primary driver of their popularity.
Research from 2019 revealed 81% of Americans go online every day, with 45% saying they go online several times a day. The same study by Pew Research also showed that nearly three out of every ten Americans are online ‘almost constantly’ throughout the day.
With that research being conducted just before the global Covid-19 pandemic, it forced a lot of people to either work or stay at home far more than they usually would, the amount of internet activity will only have increased since.
It is easy to see how marketing of the digital kind is quickly overtaking other forms in terms of its impact on business success.
