Digital marketing these days relies on the internet, there are plenty of procedures that can be done in order to promote a business online, from paid advertising to social media networking. Setting clear goals, rather than just blindly generating and sharing content, allows you to measure progress, build a solid strategy and get the most out of your marketing budget.
Some decades back, old school marketing was about getting exposed on billboards, TV commercial, direct mail, newspaper or magazine ads…truth is all of them can be expensive and really hard to measure, in other words “a shot in the dark”. Since your message is being exposed to all different kinds of people, who might not want your service or product or they simply are not ready to buy, your budget might be burnt out. Moving beyond print media or traditional marketing is a smart decision that many small business have been taking for the past couple of years. Internet marketing pays special attention on targeted and measurable techniques such as advanced search optimization, unique content creation, advertising campaigns and social media networking. Besides being a measurable way to know how you are performing online, internet marketing is based on perfect timing, helping potential buyers to find your services or products at the very exact moment they are looking for it.

By monitoring your results and making adjustments to your strategy you can improve your process and reach your marketing goal.
