OOH (out of home) advertising like billboards have much lower exposure due to people staying at home. Event marketing has come to a stand-still, and we are seeing that marketing budgets cease or shift towards online ads. Businesses have shifted to work-from-home model, restaurants, theaters and malls all closed, Digital Marketing is the talk of the town. But how can it help me? Here is how digital marketing in pandemic can help you get the best of the lockdown situation.
Understanding The Internet and How it Works
Simply put, the Internet is a parallel world that exists and people in the Covid-lockdown era are spending a whole lot of their time here.
Facebook, Netflix, Youtube all show a meteoric rise in usage.
Just like in the real world people are attracted to things they like and things that are advertised. People will follow you on social media if they like what they see. Over time, through consistent push what starts as a want later becomes a need and converts into a purchase
