In the past decade, the marketing lens shifted its focus significantly towards digital channels, as companies began to recognise the value and low cost per conversion of digital ads. Audiences moved their attention to smartphones, tablets and computers, lifestyles and purchasing habits of customers changed and traditional marketing, while ever-present, began to take a backseat.
