There is no better time than NOW for regional language publishers in India. 

The Rise of Rural Internet Users

With high-speed, low-cost internet connection accessible to maximum parts of India, the urban-rural divide is slowly narrowing.

As per an IAMAI Kantar ICUBE 2020 Report, “While internet users grew by 4% in urban India reaching 323 million users in 2020, digital adoption continues to be propelled by rural India — registering a 13% growth in internet users over the past year.”

Pocket-friendly data plans, affordable mobile phones and the ease of using local language keyboards are some of the factors that are leading to this upsurge and along with it, the growth of regional or Indian language content consumption.

*Data suggests:

  • Regional languages will make up around 50% of streaming video consumption in 2025, up from 30% in 2019. 
  • Eventually, half of the ads will be made in regional languages, followed by Hindi (47%) and only 3-4% in English.
  • YouTube released its first regional language Ads Leaderboard report, which showed that the top 10 most-watched advertisements spanning the second half of 2020 were in regional languages.

Monetizing this Trend

This regional content boom spells good news for Indian language bloggers and websites. However, the real challenge now for publishers will not be in the creation of regional content but in tapping into the opportunity to drive revenue from this huge amount of daily traffic that is coming their way.

In the current scenario, not many international ad networks are catering to regional Indian publishers and those who are, may not necessarily give a commensurate share of ad money to publishers.

Enter ‘adgebra’ – an Indian company that understands the requirements of regional publishers and supports ads in 10+ regional languages. 

10 Advantages of ‘adgebra’ for Indian Language Publishers

#2. Matching Ad Language = Higher CTR Opportunity: Readers will always have a personal connection and trust a site or brand more if they are communicating in a language that is their own. While well-known international ad networks only support English and some support Hindi advertising, adgebra is the only ad network in India that offers ad capability in 10+ regional languages. As adgebra matches the ad language to the language of site/blog content, it ensures better reader engagement, thereby click-through rates (CTR) and revenue generation.
