As far as advertising and marketing go, the internet is probably the most effective way of reaching potential customers, business partners, and interested consumers in general. Recent statistics show that more than four billion people worldwide use the internet daily. This is an amazing figure that gives you an interesting glimpse into the power of the internet and how much people use it in their daily lives. If you’re looking for non-traditional channels for marketing and advertising your business or brands, consider taking advantage of the digital space with some of the following channels:
Social Media is probably the most interactive channel available. Social Media is so popular that of the 4.2 billion people who are active users of the internet, over three billion are active on at least one of all social media platforms. It may also be interesting to note that on average, most people have over 5 social media accounts and the average time spent on social media daily is 116 minutes. This would mean that it is almost impossible for your product, business or brand, to not reach its intended audience via Social Media. Currently, Facebook is still the biggest social media network on the internet. However, all other platforms have a very large number of users and can be used instead or together with Facebook.
