Marketing has always been about connecting with your audience in the right place and at the right time. Today, that means you need to meet them where they are already spending time- on the internet. With easy access to the internet today, the number of people who go online every day is increasing. And although we say it a lot, the way people shop and buy really has changed along with it — meaning offline marketing isn’t as effective as it used to be.
