Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, digital growth in Indonesia has immensely accelerated. This has brought lasting changes to Indonesian mothers’ digital behaviours. These changes include how they make daily decisions, such as choosing where to shop or when to browse Facebook.
Although these changes seem little for others, this affects the marketing of many brands. Especially those who have products and services that cater to young families.
Our team here at theAsianparent Insight conducted a survey in the country to find out how Indonesian mums are behaving digitally in the year 2021.
Below are the highlights of this report:
