As coronavirus is going through its second wave, the government has declared people to work from home as it is safer and there is less chance of people getting affected by this virus. Events like conferences, webinars, concerts, etc. are going digital and the global markets are also getting affected by this virus. So, the marketers are getting worried if these changes are temporary or permanent. Companies like Spotify, Google and even other companies are encouraging the employees to work from home.
The companies are now taking new decisions and are letting the team leaders in taking autocratic decisions. They are using different software so that the employees can work effectively and efficiently and have productive outputs just like they did in a physical office. Most of the people are spending their time surfing the internet so it is good for the company’s sale. This is because people now can search and buy new products and services online which provides new opportunities to the marketing department of the companies.
From this, we can say that, this is the future that is going digital. People are buying even small things online like groceries, sanitizers, medicines, etc. rather than going to the market physically. Consumer behaviour is changing so the companies are also going digital to cope up with the ongoing changes. The marketers should use different tools, surveys, data and technologies so that they can know what the consumer wants and demands. The companies can even place ads on social media like Facebook and Instagram and e-commerce sites so that people can visit the company’s site just by clicking on the ads.
According to a survey by the end of next year, the need for skilled digital market professionals will increase a lot. The risk of going to shop physically is increasing day by day as the vaccine is not yet out in the market. This is making people use technology and in turn, making people smarter. This pandemic is now making people realize the importance of the digital market and is ordering everything online from groceries to digital products.
