Growing product promotion through digital marketing and social media
The growing Internet technology and innovations in Internet applications have brought a radical change in the promotional and marketing activities of vendors in the market.

Social media has proven to be a leading platform for product marketing and customer engagement.
The major players in the global smart connected clothing market have their presence in the digital and social media platforms. They operate their marketing activities and product promotions through several social media platforms.
