When we say traditional marketing we mean the marketing that you are probably already used to seeing like advertisements in newspapers or magazines, on billboards or in TV commercials. Many people think that traditional marketing is the way to go so that you can build trust with customers and create a network of lasting relationships. Surprisingly enough, the same thing can be done over the internet but for a lower cost and ultimately a more successful outcome.
If you are a small to medium sized business you need to take advantage of everything digital marketing has to offer. Beating out large competitors is difficult enough. Don’t make it harder on yourself by using outdated marketing methods. There are countless reasons why digital marketing always wins versus traditional marketing. Digital or online marketing allows you to engage with your fans, keep your costs down and builds trust with your customers.
With digital marketing you can target your specific audience. You can even use something called a lookalike audience on Facebook to target customers like the ones you already have. This audience is built from your email list of customers that you already have. Facebook will take these emails and find customers on Facebook that are similar to your existing customers. You also don’t have to target your existing customers with Facebook ads – you can completely exclude them! Using a lookalike audience will mean that your ads are being seen by more qualified leads which can ultimately lead to more sales and building lifetime relationships with loyal customers.
