Over the past few months of the lockdown phase, digital consumption has drastically increased among consumers. India has crossed half a billion mobile internet users and interestingly, 70% of the mobile content is consumed while the TV is switched on!
With the increase in digital usage, we’ve identified ‘digital first’ or ‘digital heavy’ audience segments who spend a great amount of time online. These are audiences who heavily consume digital content and rely on digital as their mainstream source of content. A few segments are listed below:
- OTT viewers - users of apps like Hotstar, MXPlayer, etc.
- Music lovers - active on Spotify, JioSaavn, Gaana, etc.
- Movie Buffs - who frequently visited cinemas before the lockdown.
They comprise about 40% of the entire smartphone ecosystem whose main source of content would be OTT platforms and mobile apps. They heavily use digital payments such as Paytm, Google Pay, etc. and are active on social media.
Since mobiles are the personal medium for digital first audiences, the go-to medium for effectively engaging them is mobile. In fact, digital payment users spend 2x higher than non-digital users.
