In todays business world, which is characterized by intense competition, advertisers and marketers take advantage of Internet, social media and digital marketing in order to influence consumers. In this context, consumer-shopping behavior also changes parallel to technological developments and economic power.

However, consumers today want to spend their shopping time more efficiently and prefer to entertain themselves during shopping. Thus, consumers become more motivated for shopping by digital marketing.
