Consumers are driving the growth in digital.It is truly a consumer trend and not a marketing trend.Marketers on the other hand are somewhat behind consumers on adoption rates.Refer to stats.

Texting remains the most universally used application. And it is clearly the most used across all segments of the population. What might be surrpisiing is that Baby Boomers – as a percentage – are nearly equal to teenagers in texting – as a percent of the their demographic. The difference, however, is the volume of texts. Teens far outpace everyone in the sheer volume of communications via text. Anyone who has or has recently had teenagers in the household can readily attest to this.
Interestingly, not all digital advances are widely or immediately put into use. One example is QR codes, or 2D codes. These square black and white objects are more commonplace outside the United States in many developed countries. However, here in the US, less than 1% of shoppers, in a Fall 2010 survey, said they have actually and successfully scanned a QR code.There are several reasons for this. One, many phones do not support it. Two, many shoppers are unaware of any benefit associated with the practice. Three, the widespread visibility of QR codes is still not abundant.However, this too will change, as nearly 70 million smartphones sold this year and part of next year will have readers embedded in them.

Digital technology is personal, and hence marketers gain a greater understanding of a consumer’s online patterns, shopping behavior, message response rates, coupon redemption and purchase history directly from digital activities.
Second is immediacy. Digital, specifically mobile, is the only method of communications that most shoppers have with them in the aisle and at the shelf.
Third is permission.
