Customers control their communication channels now, choosing when and where they shop, what they watch, and how they catch up on news. They bounce around from site to site, app to app, and channel-to-channel, which can make connecting with them through advertising difficult.
First of all, they are scattered all over the World…Wide Web. Secondly, they are looking for useful information that speaks to them. And thirdly, they do not want marketers bombarding them with irrelevant ads.
You need customers to come to you.
