Dhaka August 02 2022 :
In this digital age, brands are utilizing the power of apps that offer digital marketing support and solutions to grow their businesses.
Branding, marketing, and advertising have always been about connecting with audiences in the right place and at the right time. In today’s mobile-first world, this means meeting them where they spend a lot of time – the internet.
ITU data shows that internet usage accelerated significantly during the pandemic. In 2019, 54 percent of the world’s population was using the internet. Since then, the percentage of users in 2021 has increased to 63 percent of the population.
The global crisis forced people to become heavily dependent on the internet and technological devices such as smartphones. This increased digitization and demand for mobile apps has introduced an entire industry comprising app-based businesses, including e-commerce. Driven by digitization, improvement in technology and infrastructure, and the pandemic, the e-commerce sector accelerated rapidly, expediting digital maturity in Bangladesh.
With the culmination of the thriving e-commerce industry and multipurpose applications, we are entering an era of modern marketing. Apps have become a great tool to fuel business growth by building brand awareness and creating an engaging audience base. They also support the execution of branding and advertising campaigns. Therefore, it is imperative that we prioritize apps in reaching target customers for businesses. By means of these digital platforms, brands gradually attain the right audience by curating engaging content and campaigns.
SHAREit is one such example of a cross-platform file-sharing app that also facilitates digital marketing, acting as an intermediary for companies to reach their audience.
