Trends in the Digital Advertising Industry

Programmatic marketing: This type of marketing is automated bidding on advertising inventory that happens in real time. The reason it's talked about a great deal is that programmatic marketing, interchangeable with advertising, provides the opportunity to show an ad to a specific customer, in a specific context.

Content Marketing: In 2018, trends for content marketing revolve around personalization, or the ability to make consumers feel as though you are speaking directly to them. Social media platforms have grown in sophistication to offer greater video capabilities. Twitter is a great example of this

The Bottom Line: Growth in the digital advertising industry will continue alongside innovation. The new level of demographic data and real-time bidding have killed the need for blind ad buys. People are also becoming increasingly jaded when it comes to advertising, forcing companies to couch their messages in creative ways. But, the future is bright for digital advertising.

Digital Advertising: The Consumer Perspective

The success of any form of digital advertising has been driven by the consumers liking of digital media i.e. the platform, the ad avenue and the content. From a consumer’s perspective, the ability to view filtered content, choosing and being provided with only that content which they wish to view, consume and having access to relevant ads, makes digital advertising extremely relevant. Based on KANTAR IMRB’s annual syndicated study on Internet in India (ICUBE 2017), the proportion of Internet users who believe that online ads are informative and that they help them in finding the right product/service they were searching for, is greater than 2016. More important, there has been an increase in the number of consumers who felt that relevance of digital advertising has increased.
