To grow your business and find long term success, a powerful digital marketing campaign is absolutely vital, and here, we explain exactly why that is. Firstly, let’s look at the basics of digital marketing:
What is digital marketing?
In its most simple form (and actually, it is pretty simple all round), digital marketing refers to any kind of marketing that takes place digitally i.e., on the internet, digital technologies or an electronic device. Examples of digital marketing can include social media marketing, search engine marketing (SEM), pay per click advertising (PPC), email advertising, content marketing and lastly but by no means least, search engine optimization (SEO).
How can digital marketing help your business?
Did you know that businesses who focus on designing and maintaining strong digital marketing campaigns, are up to 3 times as likely to be able to grow both their workforce, and their business? It’s easy to see from this statistic, just how important the role of digital marketing is for businesses of all sizes, but how, exactly?
Whether yours is a start-up, or a small business with a small team and minimal funding available for a traditional marketing team, with digital marketing, it really doesn’t matter, you can still build a solid marketing strategy with what you have.
Digital marketing isn’t just for the big guns
Back in the early days of digital marketing, it was often thought that only those companies with big budgets and a lot of resources, could take advantage of digital marketing, whereas nowadays, businesses appreciate that actually, this form of marketing enables companies of all sizes to compete on an even playing field. Small and medium sized businesses can go head-to-head with huge companies and established brands, and the one with the most powerful and effective digital marketing campaign, will be the one who wins. You don’t even need the money and resources for a bricks and mortar store, with digital marketing, the entire virtual world is your storefront!
With digital marketing, you can spend less on advertising
Digital marketing methods are a fraction of the cost of traditional marketing methods, and as such, are available even to small companies with a limited budget. Fast, effective and without the costs associated with a large advertising team, with a laptop and a few creative but simple ideas, you can save money on advertising and put the money right back where it belongs: in your business. The best part, once you do start saving money on traditional advertising costs, you can spend a little of that budget on hiring a team of professional digital marketers, who will really make your money work hard for the benefit of your business. Whether you’re creating meaningful content for social media, optimizing your search engine rankings with strong SEO or making shareable content, digital marketing holds the key to your business’s success.
