The majority of Australians (82 per cent), now spend an average of 23.3 hours online, each week.
This is revealed in the “2013 Australian Connected Consumers Report” a comparative study of Australian connected consumers in 2003 and 2013, has been published by global information and measurement company, Nielsen.
Cross-Platform Research Director at Nielsen, Melanie Ingrey, stated: “Australians have shifted toward portable devices, affording them greater flexibility and more occasions of online access. More than a third of online Australians today own connected devices that didn’t exist for the mainstream population 10 years ago” including internet-enabled smartphones and tablets.

The increased sales, traffic and time on smartphones and tablets merely reflects a global trend in ever-accelerating volume of mobile computing. The increasingly frequent use of handheld devices for timeshifting, second screening, social networking, pre-purchase research, m.commerce and mobile video are all changing patterns of user behaviour.
How does this relate to business?
All enterprises, large and small, corporate and retail, need to focus marketing and operations on handheld devices:
- To avoid miniaturisation of a standard website, and adapt to the size and orientation of handheld device screens, the online presence must be built with responsive design
- To maximise visual impact and propel your brand forward, videos (of between 1’00” and 2’00” duration) are the most effective. Search engine optimisation (SEO) is also best served with video, as Google ranking is considerably higher for content presented in video, than the identical content in text and images only
- To maximise community engagement, client advocacy and prospect opportunities and SEO, social media platforms must be created and curated. If your business does not have the in-house resources to moderate, generate and curate content, an external supplier should be engaged to train or supply this service for your brand
