Social media is like a fire that can never be stopped. Why? Its because it has become an irreplaceable part of our everyday life. Entertainment, social interaction and even business, everything is on social media now. The term “digital marketing” has so much value and trust in establishing businesses.
How digital marketing is different in boosting your business than any other medium? Well, there are a lot of reasons for this.
- Better targeting
When you run a commercial on tv, you have some idea of what kind of audience would be watching it. But do you really know that the particular audience you were targeting really watched the commercial? Social media gives you so many demographics to use like behavior, interest, education, hobbies and so much more. You can use this data to make an ad which is more targeted and concentrated. With this the chances connecting to the desired audience goes so much higher. There are many other things like google ad words, PPC and SEO (search engine optimization) that help you get the best results for your marketing campaign. Of course, the most irritating problem for people is to watch ads which are not relevant. However, with social media you can search for people who are interested in the product you are selling. Among these methods, the most ideal way of communicating with the interested person is by email. This way you be in touch with your targeted audience without any hassle, and even if they get wary of you, they can just unsubscribe.
- Perfect analytics
Like I said before, how could you know that if the targeted person ever got in contact with your ad or not? With social media’s analytics system you can know who interacted, liked, and shared your ad. Not only this but you can also know about the people interacting with your ad like who is the potential buyer or who is the most interested. You can buy even more tools for better results and take decisions to reduce your cost. Some people go for both digital and traditional marketing strategies, it is important if they gather data with the digital and use it to market on traditional medium.
- Competitive fairness
We have seen many big companies in past bulldozing all other small companies leaving no room for competition. Digital marketing makes the competition fair and affordable for small companies. They can achieve higher rankings in the results. With digital marketing you have data to support your ideas and you can maintain your position in the rankings.
- Budget handling
Having a lot of money for advertising sounds good, but what if you don’t have enough money for continued advertising. The best solution to that is digital marketing. You can start with small amount and then upon analyzing the result you can take the best decision to minimize the budget for efficiency.
So digital marketing is the backbone of every kind of business, whether it is small or big, new or old. It depends on the strategies you make and how you use the data. Now matter how you look at it digital marketing is more reliable in every way.
