Top 5 Reasons You Should Be Engaging in Digital Marketing

Why use Digital MarketingBefore we dive into the “why” of digital marketing, let’s briefly visit the “what”. Digital marketing is a term widely used to describe a client’s website presence, social media, SEO, and online ads (such as Google AdWords). But digital marketing also includes wireless text messaging, mobile apps, podcasts, email, social media advertising, electronic billboards, digital television, radio channels, and more.

So why should you be engaging in digital marketing, anyway?

  • The number one reason to use digital marketing is because your target audience is there! People love to use the Internet to search for information. Digital marketing is everywhere. The Internet is so pervasive that consumers have access to information at anytime, anywhere. When you engage in digital marketing techniques, you have control of what consumers see and can even influence them to take a particular action, like visit your website or buy your product.
  • Digital reviews matter! Digital media allows the audience to see what the media, friends, relatives, peers, etc., are saying about you and your organization. And they are more likely to believe them than you. 88% of people trust online reviews written by other consumers as much as they trust recommendations from personal contacts.
  • Brand Awareness!  Research shows that people want brands they can trust, companies that know them, content that is personalized and relevant, and special offers that are tailored to their needs and preferences. The world of digital marketing allows you do just that! People work with, and refer others to, brands they know and trust.
  • Reach your target audience! Digital marketing allows you to give people what they are searching for – a well-researched strategic plan will shape your content to match your audience’s needs. You will be the expert in your field, be likable, and most importantly, be trustworthy. (Check out Elements of a Marketing Plan)
  • Real-time analytics! The analytics offered with digital marketing are comprehensive and vital to your ongoing strategy. Digital marketing is unique in that it’s one of the more highly trackable types of marketing. That is, you can directly see how your digital marketing efforts affect your bottom line. Since it involves the use of online channels and methods, an organization can analyze marketing campaigns and understand what is working and what isn’t – typically in real time. Digital monitors what is being viewed, how often and for how long, what content works and doesn’t work, and more.

A very comprehensive & informative article. Some of the SEO trends I would like to list in 2020, will be voice search, featured snippets, mobile search, social influencers etc,
most of the voice search queries will be specific & long-tail keywords, as users will want answers to their queries, & most voice queries will be local, so the latest trend in seo will be local seo.

I’ve been thinking of ways on how I can further improve my marketing strategy because I am way left behind compared to my competitors. I guess you’re right about how digital marketing can help create brand awareness because according to you, contents that are personalized and relevant are what attract the audience. Also, I agree with you that through this, people will be provided what they’re searching for.

It was interesting when you talked about how using digital marketing allows us to reach our target audience and persuade them to visit our website. The small business I work for is kind of old-fashioned and doesn’t have much of an online presence. Maybe I’ll start looking for a digital marketing consultant we can hire to raise awareness of our business.

Thanks for sharing this relevant information with us, this will help every digital marketing beginner.
1. For a clear DIRECTION

You may have a general idea regarding what you want for your business from the digital space. Try to note down these ideas, along with how you would achieve them? I’m sure you’ll be struck by the numerous thoughts that flow in and you will soon realise that a casual approach wouldn’t help you progress with the general digital plan you initially had in mind.
2. To COMPETE in the online space
Many businesses fail to realise the importance of having an online presence and the proportion of customers they’re losing out only because their business can’t be found on the internet.
3. To INTEGRATE your entire marketing strategy
Digital Marketing works best not when it is performed in silos but when it’s integrated with offline marketing activities
