Ok, well, what is digital marketing? Digital marketing is a two-pronged approach to marketing online.

  • First off, you need to be providing good and educational information on your website that prospects can find via the search engines (Google, Bing, or Duck Duck Go). 
  • Secondly, it is all about reaching out to targeted clients at the right time. This may be through pay-per-click ads, social media ads, email newsletters, etc.

According to the latest projections, digital advertising revenue will amount to 460 billion U.S. dollars by 2024.

 

According to past studies, a whopping 72% of users are currently engaged with businesses via their various digital marketing channels and activities. Nonetheless, despite the fact that both people and businesses are shifting their attention to digital media, many small businesses have yet to catch up.
