The next big thing – Digital Advertising

In my last blog “Evolution of Advertising in India” I covered the evolution since independence of India, Here in This blog I am sharing my thoughts on the latest trend and buzz about the Digital Advertising.

Digital advertising is the most advanced form of advertising where everything is optimized to bring right things to right person at right time or let me put it this way that this is the whole new level of advertising where machines are made intelligent enough to calculate the prospective buyer and find a prospective supplier or seller and connect them to each other to have a successful business between them.
