In this Digital World what are the Digital Needs, Wants and Demands of the Consumers?


1- What is the difference between Needs, Wants, and demands(Digital World)?

Perhaps the most basic yet important concepts in the field of marketing(Digital World) are the concepts of need, want, and demand.
A need is something that a person cannot do without and require it anyhow (e.g Clean water), a want is a desire that a person has, this desire may be unrealistic (e.g setting up a filter plant at your home), demand is the actual thing that you can afford or realistically have to satisfy the need (e.g purchasing bottled water).

2- Knowing what these concepts mean in the digital world.

In the digital world need of the customers is to find content that solves their problems, their want is to get content that is tailored specifically to their own problem in detail, but demand is for short, interesting and more general-problem-solving content. A digital marketer should always design campaigns based on what demand he/she expects.
