Digital Marketing

The Internet turned out to be major game changer in today’s time; numerous facilities are provided online today which once required an individual to be present at the concerned place/location. People no longer need to travel from one place to another to pay bills, to apply for a job, to fill an application form and several others facilities could be accessed online and saves a lot of time, money and energy.

The increased use of internet has opened doors to an emerging form of marketing. Marketing is the process of seeking the attention of a target audience to make them aware of a specific product, service or facility. For a long period of time, marketing has been done in a traditional way which is no longer as effective as it used to be; now with day by day increase in internet usage, digital marketing has come out as a modified way of advertising/promoting.

Digital Marketing is about promoting the services, products or facilities provided by an organisation. It involves making advertisements via digital channels such as social media, email, mobile apps, websites and search engines. Through digital marketing, an organisation aims to stay connected with existing consumers and to attract new ones.
