We’re not denying that there is still a place in this world for traditional marketing. However, without the support of a strong digital marketing campaign or an online presence, it’s a lot harder to get ahead. Many companies today ignore traditional methods entirely, opting to promote their business online only; others use digital marketing in ways that help support or their more traditional efforts. Whatever the case may be, it’s safe to say that marketing your business, product or services online is no longer something you can avoid if you want to stay ahead.
Think about it: even if you hand out flyers, hang up a poster or post an ad in the local paper, most people will check you out on Google before going any further. Consumers today are informed: they want choice, and they want to compare you to the competition to find out if you’re offering them what they need. Brute-force marketing is also becoming less effective as people become tired of being bombarded and harassed.
Marketing campaigns todays have become increasingly smart, and are more carefully aimed to ensure that the potential buyer feels as though they are benefitting from the message in some way. Whether you run a competition, offer tantalizing content, or create discounts and special deals, you have to provide an incentive. Customers also want to feel as though they are the priority, so you need to make sure you connect to them in an effective, personal way.
Digital marketing is the perfect vehicle to deliver these kinds of incentives. Your audience reach is wider, you’re able to interact more personally with customers, and you can monitor the success of your campaigns in a tangible way. Interaction puts people at ease and inspires trust; trust creates loyalty and helps you win over the skeptical fence-sitters.
You can only stand to benefit by ensuring that your company markets themselves online.
