Marketing in the Digital Age
submitted on 17 November 2018
Back in the day, when we spoke of marketing a business, it meant that we had to go out in the streets to give away flyers to passers-by, put up huge signs on your storefront to make your customers aware of your promos and discounts and whatnot. Marketing and promotion used to be physically difficult aspects of a business.
Welcome to the digital world
But when Internet technology started gaining ground all over the world, the physical aspect of marketing and promotion became easier. You no longer need to stand under the heat of the sun to give out flyers to your potential customers. You can even promote your business right inside the cool confines of your home or office. You only have to spend a few hours each day doing your marketing strategies and reaching a broader scope of your target market, regardless of wherever they are in the world.
With just a few clicks of a mouse, you can already offer your goods and services to an unlimited number of potential customers. You donít even have to own a physical store to be in business these days. You can store your inventory and stock in your garage and ship them anywhere in the world to reach your customers. The logistics of shipping products to customers wherever they may be in the world is also more feasible with the help of the Internet. Tracking orders is done on the Internet as well.
People can reach you through different Internet channels, and most, if not all, of them, are free of charge. It is safe to say that venturing into business these days is a lot cheaper, as you donít have to pay rent, utilities and a multitude of employees to run a business.
