Today, digital industries are disrupting even the most stubborn sectors, creating a future where digitization reigns supreme. Among technology stocks, digital companies are making it big. Here are some of the most important digital industries today.

Digital marketing

Marketing has come a long way from its traditional marketing campaigns. In digital marketing, products and brands are promoted through electronic media, reaching millions of potential consumers with just a click of a button. It also offers the ability to analyze trends, generate leads, calculate conversions—all in real-time. Most importantly, customers have easy access to product and service information, wherever they are in the world. This enables direct communication between the seller and consumer, providing an environment of trust even in an entirely virtual setting.

Software development

The industry emphasizes the importance of gathering data to develop, maintain and publish software based on different business models that can help improve efficiency and productivity. Indeed, modern products of the software development sectors offer more accurate, faster and not to mention cost-effective programs that have helped introduce many organizations, private, commercial and public, to digitization and modernization.


Buying and selling of products and services have been made easier through funds and data transmittal via electronic channels. Thanks to the power and accessibility of the internet, the global e-commerce is now a billion-dollar industry. Variety and convenience were the two things that the e-commerce industry first offered to their millions of online customers but recent disruptions are not just focused on these fundamental aspects but also in prioritizing consumer experience and interaction.
