What is Digital Marketing?
Digital Marketing is an umbrella term for all of your online marketing efforts. Building and maintaining a website is just the tip of the iceberg.
Businesses leverage digital channels such as Google search, social media, email and their websites to connect with their current and prospective customers. From your website to your online assets like social media, digital advertising, email marketing, online brochures and beyond there’s a huge spectrum of tactics to consider. The best digital marketers have a clear picture of how each asset supports their overarching goals.
This is about using marketing to bring the potential customer to you, rather than having your marketing efforts fight for their attention. Sharing is caring, and inbound marketing is about creating and sharing content with the world. By creating content specifically designed to appeal to your dream customers, inbound attracts qualified prospects to your business and keeps them coming back for more.
This is a marketing program that centers on creating, publishing and distributing content for your target audience– usually online – the goal of which is to attract new customers.
This is the process buyers go through to become aware of, evaluate and purchase a new product or service. The journey is a 3-step process:
Awareness stage: the buyer realizes they have a problem
Consideration stage: the buyer defines their problem and researches options to solve it
Decision stage: the buyer chooses a solution
Setting Your Strategy
Your digital marketing strategy is as simple as deciding what you want to do, how you’re going to do it, what you expect to happen, and when and how you’ll measure your success.
