How will consumer behaviour shape the digital advertising industry?

Well, consumer behaviour has been changing every decade and it keeps on changing every single minute. You don’t know what or how your consumer is going to behave at one point of time. There is no sign which can tell you exactly how your consumer is going to act e there might be multiple Trigger points, situations in which consumer will behave differently so don’t call it a consumer Behaviour I call it as a human behaviour.

I don’t even call it B2B or b2c marketing I call it H2H marketing which is human to human marketing. Think about how a human will he behave the same every time he falls into situation??

Having said that digital marketing can still predict some of the consumer behaviour but exactly not always.

In digital how we work for any kind of consumer is we create multiple personas. For all my target audiences for all my consumers. Say for example, if I am talking about an 18-year-old girl who is online to buy a t-shirt how will she buy her behaviour also depend on:

1. Time of the day

2. The device which she is using

3. Location

If she is in her college, she’ll be using a mobile phone what were the time of the day so she will be using a mobile phone in her college between let’s say 9 to 5 these trigger points can change her behaviour of purchase.

when she is in her college she will not have much time to choose, so the search button should work perfectly fine. she should not land on a black coloured top when she is searching for a red coloured that will lead to a drop out.

with increasing digital technology, consumers are becoming more restless, choosy and demanding when they make a purchase.
