The question of the decade!
What exactly is digital marketing?
what exactly is digital marketing? and what’s the difference between traditional and “new” marketing strategies? Digital marketing is an online marketing process, using Email marketing, online advertising, social media marketing, and blogging, are all good examples of digital marketing that will help you introduce people to your company/brand/service and convince them to buy.
To put it simply; digital marketing is the process of promoting products or brands using devices or the internet. It also includes text messaging, instant messaging, video, apps, podcasts, billboards, television and radio channels, etc.
Digital marketing uses multiple technologies that allow a company to analyze campaigns, content, and strategy to understand what’s working and what isn’t.
Traditional marketing VS. digital marketing
The biggest difference between the two is that through the internet you can analyze metrics to help you compare the outcomes of each digital action you take. However, in traditional marketing, or as we call it “offline marketing”, you can only get an approximate number of people who saw a commercial ad on TV or an ad displayed on the street, for example.
In digital marketing, you can know exactly how many people clicked on your ad, the actual number of people who downloaded your digital book, the number of people who bought your product, and so on…
With this data, you can examine different strategies, and even correct a mistake, if necessary.
