The United States is the third most popular destination for Indian expatriates worldwide. They’re also among the most educated and high-earning ethnic groups in the US, which makes them an attractive target audience for a variety of services and products. However, reaching and communicating directly to the needs of expatriates can be tricky, as their habits, traditions, and beliefs can vary significantly from local citizens.

As with most consumers today, Indian expats are digitally-savvy and are influenced by the information they consume online. To identify how advertisers and digital marketers can best target this consumer segment, Netscribes analyzed the online behavior of 220 Indian expats in the US, including highly skilled professionals and students. We discuss our findings from the report.
