Digital Marketing Australia
In the world of business and brand development, Digital will be the whole buzz. So, just what digital marketing and how can we use it to grow our business?
Digital Definition Marketing
Digital Marketing is advertising and promotion of business and brand through digital media channels. Digital media, at this time, include websites, social media, radio, television, mobile and even traditional non-digital media such as billboards and transit signs. Essentially any marketing media that is delivered electronically to digital marketing.
This leaves only several forms of person-to-person (P2P) marketing, print advertising and direct marketing outside of the digital marketing umbrella. Even then, printed advertisements, direct mail, printed directories, billboards and posters all start connecting with digital partners. Online directories and text codes, traditional marketing and advertising almost always have a digital marketing connection.
Why focus on digital media?
Changes in digital media were driven by marketing agencies, business owners and consumers alike. Demands of ever increasing to show quantifiable results make digital a dream for digital marketing agencies. Most digital media, such as websites, social media and mobile advertising, are easier to track than traditional media like print advertising.
For business owners, many forms of digital advertising are very low prices. Having a web presence, engaging customers in social media and marketing e-mail conversations are the lowest cost alternative to advertising and direct mail. All these digital stations are available for businesses of somewhat size, and help even the field for start-ups, minor businesses and liberated advisors seeking new business.

Use digital media to build your business with your brand
Regardless of your business size – large or small business / enterprise business (SMB or SME) – you can market your business effectively to digital low cost channels. Your marketing efforts foundation will be your website. Invest yourself wisely to your website, and make sure it does the following:
Adequately represent your business and brand (see and feel, messaging)
- Talk to your target audience
- Can be found by researchers on top search engines
- It’s up-to-date and easy to navigate
- Provides several channels for customer communication
- Connect with other marketing efforts
It is recommended that you work with a professional web designing site that is skilled in web development and search engine optimization. Because your website is the foundation and out of which all other digital channels will lead, it should be considered one of your business’s top investment.
Once you have your website complete, the next steps should be to launch regular monthly or bi-monthly e-mail campaigns, and to connect with clients through social media. If you are really on a budgeted bargain, these are the efforts that can be done at home (not a person with proper knowledge) or for a low cost by a digital marketing outlet. Make sure all your efforts are brought to customers back to your website where they can fully engage with your business, product and service, and select channels through which they contact you.
If you are interested in finding aggressive and search marketing, you can set aside some digital marketing dollars for search engine optimization and pay-per-click advertising. Many businesses today depend very much on finding new customers online. A common misconception among business titleholders is that simply having a website means that patrons will find it. Not so. Your site must be built with specific keywords and phrases, meta data, content pages and linked strategies that will help it reach top search rankings.
Because many keywords and phrases have stiff competition for top search rankings, you will need to complete your organic search engine effort to optimize and pay-per-click advertising. When you set up and pay-per-click advertising campaigns can be a little daunting, but with little time, effort and instruction, which can also be accomplished in-house, or for a reasonable price from a digital marketing outlet.
Beyond e-mail, social media marketing and search engine marketing, you can venture into a host of other digital marketing efforts. Mobile advertising, radio, television, electronic bulletin boards and more are available as marketing outlets. Regardless of your digital selection, you should be all connected and tied to your foundation – your company’s website.
If you have the means, a wise investment should engage the services of a digital marketing agency to help in your marketing efforts. Today, many digital agencies offer several service levels to accommodate big and small businesses.
