Definition: Digital Marketing includes all the traditional offline marketing strategies, but the core component is Pay-Per-Click (PPC) advertising. When using digital marketing strategies, advertisers can create and run their own pay-per-click (PPC) advertising campaigns, manage them, and track the results of their PPC ad campaigns. In the recent past, the main source of income has been offline PPC advertising, especially for established companies. With the advent of Internet marketing, however, the Pay-per-click advertising campaign has become less costly and thereby has been used by smaller businesses to generate online profits.
As with any other form of advertising, digital marketing requires planning, strategic planning and execution. To begin with, advertisers must decide upon the target audience and focus on those potential customers. Next, an advertiser needs to plan the budget for the digital marketing effort, determine the type of advertising to be used, set the maximum budget and monitor the results of the advertising. These are just some of the basic steps involved in any form of advertising. In fact, these are the same steps that any businessman would take when planning any other type of advertising campaign.
Digital channels in digital marketing include search engines, blogs, content directories, RSS feeds, video channels, instant message boards, and social networking sites. Among these, search engines rank websites according to their popularity and relevance, and blogs provide information about the latest trends and buzzwords. RSS feeds can be used to share text-based ads across a network of blogs. Video channels allow digital marketers to post video ads on their channels, and content directories allow online publishers to syndicate their content.
Unlike the more traditional forms of advertising, where a company must rely on a large audience to make a marketing campaign successful, digital marketing campaigns require a smaller target audience because they do not depend on traditional media for their success. Therefore, digital marketers are able to create campaigns that target specific audiences and demographics. This is possible because the target audience is not limited to only anyone who can access the Internet. The Internet is also more accessible than television, radio and even print, making it accessible to virtually everyone.
The best thing about digital marketing is that it can target anyone, anywhere at any time of the day or night. The ease of reaching the market has resulted in an increase in digital sales and visitors to websites. With more buyers are relying on the Internet to research products and services has made it imperative for a business to create an inbound marketing campaign. This type of campaign is not directly tied to the company’s sales and profit; instead, it is more geared towards reaching out to potential customers and increasing brand awareness. A digital marketing campaign done well will give a product or service an edge over the competition.
