Before we explain Digital Marketing, Let’s turn back around 15 years ago when most of us did not have a computer or a mobile phone in our hand. However, we had Newspapers, Books, Magazines, Radio, TV and etc to educate and entertain ourselves.
Our Google Map was the nearby taxi driver or the people on the roadside and the Social Media were the nearest Tea shops, Libraries and Clubs.
We used to spend a lot of time reading Newspapers, Books, Listening to Radio and watching TV shows.
As it was the most used and popular media at that time, Business owners and marketers used those media to communicate with their target audience.
All the big brand’s advertisements and promotions we see and hear mostly were in those media.
Entrepreneurs and Small businesses who had a limited marketing budget used Outdoor advertising, Weeklies, Flyers and Banners. Marketing through the above-mentioned media is called Traditional Marketing or Old Marketing.
How was the buying experience before the Internet?
After we see a TV commercial or a Newspaper advertisement, we might buy it if it is a good deal and we really need it.
If we wanted to buy it, we had to go to the shop to see that and ask the salesman about the features and price details of it.
For knowing the review of a product, we had to ask about it to our neighbours, relatives or any other person in the circle who already brought it before.
It was really difficult to compare one with another and choosing the best one as per our requirements.
Let’s come back to today’s internet World?
Take ourselves as an example that how many hours we use our mobile phone in a day and imagine how will be a day without the Internet.
