1,040% increase in Internet time spent on tablets

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.

Business Insider reveals that in just 3 years, the increase in time Americans spent on the Internet via a smartphone has grown by 237% to now exceeds time spent via desktop and time on the Internet via a tablet has grown by a dramatic 1,040%

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

Digital Tsunami can assist in all these. Our executives each have over 3 decades in video production, ALL our online solutions are now built in responsive design, and for many years, we’ve been successfully integrating our client brands in social media.

We listen carefully to your profile, requirements and objectives, propose appropriate solutions which will achieve your goals, and implement online and offline collaterals to effectively promote your brand.

Foodbank has experienced unprecedented growth .. there is no doubt that the new Foodbank website, designed, built and maintained pro bono by Digital Tsunami, has been the principle tool in lifting Foodbank's profile. It is because our website is so engaging, that we have captured these donations. Foodbank just wouldn't be where we are today without Digital Tsunami.
