Let’s face it, back in the day developing marketing campaigns meant rolling out an ad on television or radio, while also running magazine and newspaper ads. Fast forward to today, the world of commerce has moved to a digital market. The age of being limited to print ads is over, and now brands have the unique opportunity to connect with customers in their target market through an enhanced digital strategy that employs the latest digital marketing tactics.
Implementing digital marketing strategies and tactics will take your traditional forms of marketing to the next level. This does not mean that you need to toss out your traditional print ads, especially if they are working for you. Adding digital tools to your marketing toolbox will simply modernize and optimize your approach while fitting in seamlessly to your current effective strategies.
Here are a few things to consider:
Consumers themselves are going digital. From online shopping to relying on Google as a primary method of research, consumers are always connected. Implementing a digital marketing strategy will help your business stay in front of consumers and remain relevant. Implementing blogs and having a strong social media presence allows you to speak to your consumers quickly and in real-time.
Social media works. Having an active social media presence helps improve customer service and allows you to get a deeper understanding of your consumers wants and needs. This information allows you to deliver tailored messaging to your target audience that will resonate with them and help you stay top of mind.
80% of consumers are more likely to purchase from or contact a brand if they are offered a personalized experience. By using digital marketing strategies businesses can offer personalized customer recommendations based on their individual user behavior. From reaching back out to potential customers who visited your website, left an item in their cart, began filling out a contact form, or even retargeting ads on social media, you can stay relevant to the customer.
Your competitors have likely already implemented digital marketing. Content Marketing Institute explains that 76% of B2C marketers and 88% of B2B marketers are currently implementing content marketing strategies to engage with their target demographic. You don’t want to be late to the game!
There are arguably countless ways that digital marketing can positively impact your brand and overall sales.
