How to Start with Digital Marketing
What is Digital Marketing?
Digital marketing simply means the use of the Internet (or other digital technologies) as a way to reach your potential customers and clients.
It can be as simple as "build a website" to a well designed and thought out content marketing strategy as with our "7 Step Pipefish Process".
"Digital" is simply the way computers work, zeros and ones, as opposed to analogue and a way of storing and transmitting data. Remember cassette recorders? They were analogue. Your phone's SD card or internal storage, that's digital. Which can hold more music for its size? Exactly. Digital is fast, reliable and infinitely more measurable than any other technology which makes it ideal for marketing.
But back to the basics. If you haven't really thought about your online marketing in terms of a strategic digital marketing plan then you may be wasting time and money on things you think you should do rather than what's effective.
