Some people will argue that traditional marketing is dead and digital is where you want to be. Other professionals might argue that digital marketing has been over-optimized and they usually ignore online advertisements anyway. The fact of the matter is, the world is flooded with advertisements—traditionally and online. So, let’s talk about the pros and cons of these marketing methods and what can be done to make them more effective.
Traditional marketing relates to television and radio advertisement, press releases, and mailings. When enough money is invested, these methods have proven to be quite successful. That’s a pro. The con is the amount of money you’d have to invest in such a campaign. This type of advertising can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars—something that billion-dollar corporations can afford when their product is already a well-known brand, but for small to medium-sized companies, the marketing budget may not be so generous. This is where most, if not all businesses lean toward digital marketing methods.
There are reportedly 1.7 billion annual online transactions that total close to $720 billion in sales. It’ clear that with number like these, your business is obligated to launch some type of digital marketing campaign to get a piece of that $720 billion-dollar pie!
That’s a huge pro! Now the con…
Pop-ups used to be pretty effective until they became an annoyance. Then email campaigns were launched—until businesses started forwarding unknown emails to SPAM. Social media campaigns tend to work fairly well, but you still have to be pretty strategic in targeting the right demographics. Otherwise, your social media advertisements will just be seem like a wallflower.
So What Do You Do?
You still have to gain leads for your business, right? Depending on the type of business you’re running, one conversion can make a huge difference in your profits. Therefore, it’s best to just keep pushing both the digital and traditional campaigns until you get something, because doing nothing is definitely not going to work!
