Indian market is ripe for online advertising disruption, says Criteo research

Key Insights:

  1. 49.4% of Indian survey participants stopped shopping from a brand that they were loyal to before because of poor customer service
  2. 83.3 % said YouTube helps them most to discover new brands
  3. 60.9% would try a new brand for the first time because it provides a discount that is personalized and relevant, and this also appears to be the best way to gain customer loyalty
  4. 44.4% strongly agree that their purchasing decision is affected by a company’s mission/values
  5. Customer service is still key as it is the main reason for remaining with a brand (62.3%), or for leaving if customer service is poor (49.4%)
  6. Consumers are least loyal to Groceries brands and are most loyal to Jewelry & Luxury Goods

The online shopping market in India holds tremendous potential as it has some of the largest consumer segments across each e-commerce category, and it is focused on innovation, research, and development, making it one of the leading e-commerce markets in the world. Advertising and technological advancements have led to better-personalized experiences as it allows the communication of hyper-personalized messages that resonate with the target customer.

Criteo, the advertising platform for the open Internet, unveiled the survey report titled ‘Why We Buy’.
The survey was conducted across 10 countries, with over 10,000 respondents split almost evenly over all countries. The report in respect of India highlights that 90% of Indian consumers are willing to consider a new brand across all the shopping/product categories, which is the highest compared with consumers from the other countries surveyed.

The report gave us insights into how consumers discover brands, with Omnichannel discovery on YouTube, Facebook and websites as the top channels – but they were far from being the only source. Relevance makes a difference- 66% of Indians like that online ads can help them in discovering new products, while 57% like online ads for reminding them of products they’re interested in, and 51% like that online ads offer discounts for products.

It has been phenomenal to witness the Indian consumer behavior and we are glad to share this on a larger platform for the benefit of the Indian advertising industry which has evolved from being a small-scale business to a full-fledged industry. It has been phenomenal to witness the advancements of technological innovation in advertising over the years. The shift of ad spending from traditional to digital media is happening at a rapid pace. The advertising and marketing sector in India is expected to enjoy a good run. Growth is expected in a retail advertisement, on the back of factors such as several players entering the food and beverages segment, e-commerce gaining more popularity in the country, and domestic companies testing out the waters”, Siddharth Dabhade, MD, Criteo India, said.

Magneto 1.9 Supports End In 2020. Are You Ready For It?

Magneto 1.9 Supports End In 2020. Are You Ready For It?

Time is running out for the thousands of merchants still using Magento 1.9 or older. Support for Magento 1.9 is due to expire by June 2020 at the latest. But more importantly, support for PHP 5.6 has already expired. PHP is the scripting software that Magento runs on. Most hosting companies will be demanding that you stop using PHP 5.6. If they have not already, the hosting companies will soon turn it off.

Using a patch, Magento 1.9 can run with the newer versions of PHP, such as 7.3. But it is not at all certain that Magento extensions would also work. Thus, many merchants have correctly decided to migrate the entire Magento platform and not tinker with patching the PHP.

Many will migrate to Magento 2.0. It is better than Magento 1.9. Pages load faster and the checkout is faster, among other technical benefits. But why restrict yourself to Magento 2.0? Out of the box, it will be expensive to install, expensive to run, and expensive to maintain. Does your eCommerce site need all the functionality that this sledgehammer provides?

Magento is not inexpensive to run. If you have just a few orders per day, you should likely be on a cheaper and smaller system. If you process a significant number of daily orders or sell on multiple channels, you likely require an order management system. Most decent order management systems will interface with more than just Magento version 2.0.

Likewise, modern e-commerce platforms all provide the core functionality of most retailers. If you list all the features that you need — not the “nice to have” — you are likely to find that many platforms have them natively, without an extension.

How much does it cost to run Magento 1.9? Magento 2.0 will likely cost about the same. The main expenditures are:
• Hosting
• Maintenance of the software (including keeping it up to date)
• Man hours in keeping the content up to date
• License fees for all the needed extensions

Before switching off the live 1.9 system, most developers recommend
• Creating a new 2.0 installation
• Importing all of the data
• Getting it running fully

Migrating to a different platform will be no different. The same technical challenges exist. You would still need to create 301 redirects. You would need to integrate with all third-party software. You’ll need to test. Whether it’s Magento 2.0 or another option, the migration is similar.
