The world has gone completely digital

The numbers are truly staggering.  According to Internet World Stats there are approximately 1.8 billion Internet users worldwide (Dec 09) – and we have only hit 26% penetration!

Australian’s are now connected to the digital world.   Nielson Online reports that “internet participation” in Australia has hit maturity with 84% of the adult population online.  Around 60% of households are connected to high speed broadband and mobile penetration is close to saturation at 96% of the population.  It seems that by 2013 every man, woman, child and dog will have a mobile phone – and they’ll all be using mobile internet.

The world has truly gone digital and we have barely scratched the surface.

The rise of the Internet and digital media has completely changed consumer behavior.  Consider this – Australians now spend on a weekly basis more time online (17.1 hours) compared to watching television (12 hours). Many multi-task, that is surf the net and watch TV at the same time.  This change in consumer behavior has fragmented media and altered the way businesses communicate with consumers forever.  Gone is the old, one directional model of pushing messages down the throats of consumers using traditional media.  Businesses now have to communicate with customers on their terms – when and where they want.  How do you communicate with consumers and customers in this new world? The answer is simple; using digital marketing.
