How Brands Plan to Ride the Summer Advertising Wave

According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), Summer 2024 in India is forecasted to bring warmer days and nights, with above-normal temperatures anticipated across most regions. This prediction holds significant implications for summer sales and brands operating in the country.

Despite the initial focus on fashion, marketers acknowledge that consumer interests span a wider spectrum. Companies are gearing up for heightened production levels, anticipating increased consumer spending during the general elections and a more favorable summer season compared to the previous year.

What Does it Mean for Advertisers and Publishers?

Summer sees a consistent rise in consumer spending, presenting prime opportunities for publishers and advertisers.

While advertisers are betting big on summer advertising to expand their consumer base and increase customer interactions, conversions, and ROAS, publishers are presented with a significant opportunity to uplift their monetisation avenues by providing the platform (website/app) for advertisers to advertise.

Furthermore, with a strong inclination in Indian consumers to learn more about what they are associating with, 83% of consumer journeys occur through independent research and internal deliberation, while only 17% occur directly with the vendor.

This makes the role of publishers highly prominent in the two-thirds part of the consumer buying journey (Discovery, Consideration, Purchase).
