In 2015, adults in the USA spent an
average of nearly 2 hours a day consuming digital video content and 40 minutes
a day on Facebook (this is up from 30 minutes a day in 2011). 27% of the baby
boomer generation spend 20+ hours a week consuming content that is online. And
2014 marked the year that mobile use was greater than the use of desktop
computers. Today more than half of all
digital content consumed is done on a mobile device, and this is now the
leading source of internet access.

Sales and Marketing Entrepreneur and
Business Consultant, Josh Cote, coaches SME's on how to improve customer
acquisition and retention. His
background is in face-to-face sales through business-to-business, events or
business-to-consumer. "To create the
most direct and personal link between clients and potential customers, offline
marketing must run in sync with a brand's digital approach," states Josh Cote.
The successful entrepreneur acknowledges
the rise and influence that technology and digital platforms have on marketing
strategies and encourages SMEs not to ignore these. Josh Cote adds, "We all know
there will always be a need for face-to-face interactions. However, we need to
help smaller businesses to embrace cross-channel marketing and use both digital
and offline marketing to their advantage." He concludes that marketers should pair the face-to-face experience with
live social media features to keep up to date with current trends and to
continue to build trust with consumers.
