Once upon a time, if you wanted to find out about anything, you would simply ask around. That’s how information was passed on, through word of mouth. With the invention of the printing press, a new form of communication opened up. Information was passed through newspapers, flyers, books etc. Word of mouth still existed of course, but now a new method for relaying information was also available. Before you knew it, the radio was invented, which led the way to the television. Now, if a business or person wanted to get their message across about products and services, they could do so easily through print, radio, TV and word of mouth.
The dawn of the internet created a new marketing avenue for business to reach their customers. Digital marketing allows for companies to reach their potential customers for a fraction of regular marketing costs. While there are some that feel that digital marketing will end traditional marketing methods, there are those that believe it will complement the existing traditional methods, as each new marketing method introduced in the past, has done.
Digital Marketing includes:
Social Media Marketing
Search engine optimization
