Why your business needs to embrace digital marketing.

There is a paradigm shift in the way people are accessing information in Malawi. In the past, people could access information through traditional media such as newspapers, radios and television. But the penetration of smart phones and access to the internet has made our society access information and even do transactions via mobile devices. Google’s digital skills in Africa estimated, in 2000, 361 million were online worldwide. In 2015, 3.2 billion were online growth rate of 786%. Today, nearly half the world is online. In Africa, 26% of the population has access to the internet. It is estimated for 500 million Africans to be online by 2020.  Of those digitally connected, 90% of Africans access internet through mobile devices. No matter which device they use, people around the world spend 1,900 minutes per month online. That’s about 30 hours.  Nearly a third of their time is spent on their social media and the other time is spent either shopping or learning new skills.   E-commerce in Africa is a fast growing options for Africans with an estimated growth of almost 10 times per year. A Mobile device is a new place of meeting and doing business with your prospects and consumers in this digital era and TMMs would like to help you
