Digital Marketing Strategies
Some people may ask, what is the difference between digital marketing and Internet marketing? The big difference is in the type of marketing techniques used. Internet marketing, although using the digital Internet, focuses on every means of getting information to potential customers about products and services a merchant is offering using only the Internet. Digital marketing uses all the channels available in the digital media to get information to customers, and it does not limit itself to the Internet.

Digital Marketing Media

The digital marketing sector uses many different digital marketing media channels, such as:

Cell phone Short Message Service (SMS) - text messages

Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds


Voice Broadcast

Video E-mails

Banner ads on affiliate websites

Outdoor digital displays



Strategies for Digital Marketing

There are two basic digital marketing strategies used by current and potential customers. These two types of digital marketing are called the "Push" and the "Pull." Their methodology for providing information to customers works as follows:

Pull digital marketing - the customer seeks information about products and/or services by visiting the company's sources of information searching for the specific product or service information. They are basically requesting to view this specific content. These are typically located in websites, blogs, streaming audio and video sources. Customers have found related information on other websites or been directed to the company's sources by a referring website to find the information.

Push digital marketing - customers are provided information by receiving or viewing advertisements digitally, such as: SMS, RSS, cellphone calls, etc., as subscribers of the latest product and service information provided by the company.

Both have their advantages and disadvantages. For example:

Pull advantages - no restrictions on file size, no opt-in requirements, and low technology requirements for the company.

Pull disadvantages - marketing required, little tracking of visitors, and no personalization to keep the visitors coming back.

Push advantages - personalization of messages, high conversation rate, and detailed tracking of customer choices.

Push disadvantages - requires Can Spam Act 2003 compliance, most customers must opt-in, can be blocked, simply opt-out, and requires delivery technology.
