Compared to other more traditional forms of marketing, it is easier to accurately measure the results of your marketing campaigns, which allows you to make informed decisions about the value it delivers.
A well-planned digital marketing campaign can result in significant returns when implemented effectively, all for a relatively modest investment.
Digital marketing allows you to reach your target audience in ways that traditional forms of marketing do not allow. Depending on the channels used, you can target your market accurately at all buying cycle stages, reaching them with highly relevant messaging and content.
Digital marketing is also accurately measurable, so you can evaluate precisely where your marketing efforts have the most impact.
We recommend starting digital marketing by thinking about your audience and your priorities. This will help you decide which digital marketing tactics will be the right fit for you.
For example, if you’re selling a service aimed at individuals nearing retirement, Instagram and Snapchat probably don’t make sense for your business. At the same time, LinkedIn and Facebook would better fit your audience.
Next, it’s time to think about your priorities as a business. The digital marketing tactics you choose should align with your business goals. If your main goal is to spread the word about your local business, then local SEO is for you! If you’re more interested in understanding why users leave your website, you should consider UX testing.
If you have the time and the manpower to take on multiple tactics at once, go for it! But if you can only devote attention to a few tactics, we recommend you start strong with those and add more to your marketing mix.

Digital Marketing Strategy
The main elements of a Digital Marketing strategy are your target audience, goals and objectives, and the tactics you will employ to actively market to your target audience and achieve your goal KPIs. These three elements are crucial to formulating an effective marketing strategy.
Whatever the size of your business, it is important that you have a Digital Marketing strategy in place to ensure that whatever marketing activity you do, is aligned with your goals and objectives. Having a strategy means you have clear steps to meet your short-term, mid-term or long-term objectives.
It gives you a clear plan to stick to and something to measure against your results. If you have a plan in place to meet a certain objective that wasn’t met, then the activity would need to be analysed to ensure it was the right one for that objective.
Content marketing is the description for creating and distributing relevant and valuable content to attract a target market to a destination.
Content is the collective term for blogs, articles, infographics, videos and images. Distribution of content can be on your own website and Social Media channels or via third-party channels such as ‘influencers’ blogs, online publishers and directories.
Content marketing is about creating and sharing unique content that people want to see. It entails communicating and getting in front of your prospects and customers without going for the hard sell. A content marketing strategy is simply the master plan for your campaign.
Firstly you need to establish and define your goals, target audience and content channels before setting clear and achievable KPIs (so you know what success looks like).
You then assess your current position by reviewing all of your content ‘assets’ such as blogs, videos and images, to decide whether you can repurpose or you need to create new content.
This will enable you to create a content gap analysis and decide which content types will work best. You can then create a content calendar which will plan out your campaign.
A content strategist's job is to understand the 'big-picture' business objectives and develop a content plan that meets this.
Content marketing is a great way to earn trust and credibility, attracting new customers and retaining existing ones.
The key to its success is producing relevant, reliable and consistent content that can be distributed through various channels, including blogs, videos, podcasts, social media and digital publications.
Once you have a fully researched content calendar which meets the business objectives and includes your keywords, good content marketing includes creating original content which is thought-provoking, memorable and engaging – rich with images and videos.
