An infographic released by Localytics reveals the lack of innovation in marketing by a number of companies. Technological advances are the order of the day but companies are not moving along with the technological advancement in their businesses which in turn lead to the lack of user engagement. The bottom line is that companies need to change their attitude if they want to win their customers.

The infographic also sheds light on the possible ways that a company may incorporate to get back the user’s engagement. Understanding the users and catering their expectations must be the prime priority of the companies.

The need of the hour
