Digital Marketing | Back to Basics

Understanding the Basics of Digital Marketing

In this blog, I’ll be taking it back to the basics, widening your knowledge of digital marketing. It’s important to understand all the basics before educating yourself on the advanced bits and bobs. But that’s enough rambling on… for now! Let’s delve into the basics of digital marketing.

What is Digital Marketing?

Digital marketing is advertising through digital channels. These channels can be anything from social media to email. Search engines to websites, it’s up to you. It’s just like traditional marketing but it involves electronic devices. Simple, right? 

 

Why is Digital Marketing Important? 

Search engines like Google and social media platforms like Facebook generate a lot more revenue than any other method of traditional marketing. That’s why digital marketing is important. More and more people are using the WWW each day, expanding your potential reach every second. 

 

On average, 1.62 billion people log in to Facebook each day! Now, that’s a lot of people. So, my question to you is if your business isn’t on Facebook, why? There is no excuse. You have the potential for your message to reach thousands or even millions of people each year.

 

Digital marketing can help to boost your business’s organic traffic, increase sales, and maximise your ROI. Now, who wouldn’t want that?
