Digital Marketing in EdTechPosted: May 30, 2016
What is digital marketing?
Digital Marketing is a process of integrating various online marketing channels to attract, engage and convert customers on the web. Some of the major online marketing channels such as SEO (search engine optimization), SEM (search engine marketing) and Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.) are being used by brands to connect with potential customers and amplify overall marketing performance.
A successful digital marketing strategy is the optimal use of various online marketing channels to implement both words ‘Digital’ and ‘Marketing’ in harmony. While basic marketing principles still apply in every aspect of digital marketing, this shouldn’t be considered “just another” new marketing channel. Digital Marketing is a refreshingly new data-driven marketing approach to better understand your potential customers and offers unique solutions to their needs.
The importance of Digital Marketing:
It’s a reality that the world is shifting from analog to digital at a very rapid pace, people are adopting digital as a part of their time and consuming more and more content every day on mobile phones, laptops, TV and other digital devices.
The top most reason of adopting digital as core marketing strategy is the scalability, measurability, and complete control. Rather than conducting expensive customer research and survey, you can quickly compare the customer response rate and track the effectiveness of your marketing campaign in real time.
