What is Digital Marketing?

Digital marketing is an umbrella term for all of your online marketing efforts. Businesses leverage digital channels such as Google search, social media, email, and their websites to connect with their current and prospective customers.

How is Digital Marketing being used?

This may seem like a pretty obvious question but if I were to ask you, define how Digital Marketing is used to me? It would be difficult because it’s such a broad statement we know what it is but then there are the additional assets and tactics that come under Digital Marketing.

So the assets will be your Website, Blog Posts, Social Media Channels, Online Brochures, Branding Assets, (logos, fonts, etc.), Interactive Tools, and Infographics. Then there’s the tactics Content Marketing, Inbound Marketing, Social Media Marketing, SEO, Email Marketing, Online PR and much more.

Here are 3 examples of tactics company’s can use to market their business…

SEO

Also known as search engine optimization this helps you get ranked so by getting higher in a search engine it means you are increasing the amount of organic traffic that your website receives.

Email Marketing

Companies use email marketing as a way of communicating with their audiences. Email is often used to promote content, discounts and events, as well as to direct people towards the business’ website. (Check out these 15 successful email-marketing campaigns for inspiration.)
