People spend twice as much time online as they used to a decade ago. And while we say it a lot, the truth is, the way people shop and buy really has changed, meaning offline marketing isn’t as effective as it used to be.

Marketing has always been about connecting with your audience in the right place and at the right time. Today, that means that you need to meet them where they are already spending time: on the internet and that is when digital marketing comes into play.

Digital marketing is when businesses harness the power of the online world and infuse it with their marketing strategies.

Why Digital Marketing?

  1. Customer Engagement

One of the reasons why digital marketing is taking over traditional marketing channels is the ability of Internet marketing tools to interact with targeted audiences in real time. Engagement in any form is what your customers expect to receive when they interact with your brand or business. How your business handles such engagements and interactions will spell the difference between business success and failure. Interacting and providing your customers with proper engagement points can give you an insight of what your targeted audiences want. This vital information will steer you towards making the right set of next moves, provide your customers with an even better experience, develop good relationships with them and gaining their loyalty and trust in the process, which you will need when your business begins to grow. 

 

  1. Digital Marketing Caters to the Mobile Consumer 

Certainly, mobile internet will be (if it already isn’t) the next wave of information dissemination and communication channel, brought about by the rapid increase of smartphones, tablets and other internet-enabled devices. These mobile devices have become a central part of our lives, thus, people always have their devices within reaching distance.

Driving your digital marketing campaigns towards mobile consumers will undoubtedly pave the way for your company/ organization to achieve better growth and faster expansion. Mobile gadgets have evolved from being mere alternatives for laptops and personal computers, into something that is influencing customer purchasing decisions.
