Now, SMBs from India to Iceland can more effectively reach their target audiences on Twitter in 15 languages. In addition, Twitter also announced that the total active advertisers, including SMBs were approximately 100,000.

With the expansion of the Twitter self-service ads platform, we are excited to help SMBs level the playing field with digital advertising to increase their sales,” said Twitter SMB lead for Asia Pacific Emily Huo.


There are 51 million SMBs in India, according to market research firm Zinnov. Start-ups registered in India are projected to go up a whopping 11,500 by 2020, independent consultancy KPMG reports.

There is no minimum requirement for spends and the campaign can be started and stopped at any time. The self-service ad platform has been developed so it is as easy to use as possible, while providing businesses and individuals with all the tools they need to advertise effectively.
