Digital marketing is an umbrella term that refers to the promotion of brands, products, and services via forms of electronic media.
The term should not be confused with digital presence which simply refers to the different way a business may be represented in an electronic format. Though the same media/platforms are used – a website for example – digital presence implies passivity, while digital marketing is an active attempt to engage with potential clients. The key objectives of digital marketing are:
- To (actively) promote your brand.
- To (actively) build your audience ie potential prospects.
- Ultimately to increase your sales.
