Why digital marketing?

Diving into digital marketing is a step for us in overseeing the digital transformation in the marketing industry. In this digital age, as consumers are becoming more present online from the marketplaces to social media, digital marketing is a valid shortcut in reaching out to customers. Additionally, customers behaviour of purchase products online were dominantly influenced by the various content shared on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Moreover, there are many electronics such as smartphones, laptops, and conversational AIs have designed and improved based on customers online experience.

As we explore about customers online experience, their purchasing power doesn’t only happen offline in shopping malls, hypermarkets, boutiques and sundry shops. Customers’ purchasing power also exists online, and as products/services providers, we have to acknowledge this discovery and utilise its potential. Apart from marketplaces such as 11Street, iPrice, eBay, Ali Express or Lazada, the event management and ticketing platforms such as Eventbrite and Peatix allows us to explore more possibilities in reaching out to wider segments of customers. Today, we are now given the opportunity to monetize online content through Patreon, Twitch and YouTube. This monetisation method has been utilised extensively by many content creators such as Marques Brownlee, SuperSaf TV, Geek Sundry and Casey Neistat.
