What is Digital? Digital Meaning

In Sri Lanka, people have been living traditionally for more than 100 years.

But from 2000, the country is interconnected with digital.

In simple definition: Digital age means how much we in Sri Lanka are dependent on information technology.

To further simplify: We can’t survive without tech.

Personal Life

In Colombo surrounding areas, it is safe to call it digital life compared to personal life.

It is true because the time where bought toys for kids is gone.

We buy digital devices from a young age for our kids.

Like mobile, gaming console, iPad, computers, satellite tv connection (e.g., PEO TV), and more.

On average, people are spending 6 hours and 42 minutes online each day.

Did You Know What Digital Age Made Possible?

Sri Lanka digital is quickly transforming our country.

In recent years the level of development we had in the business industry is impossible without “Digital age.”

For Entrepreneurs: Digital Business

  • It made it easier to be located in any part of the island and target the audience nationally.
  • It changed how businesses were able to provide support and engagement with potential customers.
  • It opened a lot of opportunities internationally to venture out worldwide.

For Marketers: Digital Marketing & Advertising

It is true when I say that website and your online properties are your new sales showroom.

In Sri Lanka, digital marketing is now taking over traditional media.

TV, Newspaper, Telephone directory & radio ads will stay, but it’s losing its effectiveness.

  • Hard to measure the results and reach
  • Very costly mediums
  • It does not offer personalization to your customers
  • Not suitable for every time business

Digital marketing, on the other hand, is getting popular because:

  • Very cost-effective
  • Measurable results and full analytics of campaign
  • It redefined how you can personalize and interact with your audience
  • Able to reach teenagers and the next generation much more quickly

For Professionals: A lot of Business Opportunities

  • There are literally over 100 ways to earn money online
  • Work from anywhere on the island for anyone in the world
  • Get yourself free from traditional 9 to 6 jobs
  • Make yourself unique from typical professionals in Sri Lanka

The number of people who work from home has increased by 140% since 2005.
