The Internet has become the basic need for everyone. Paying online bills and fees, transfer money, online shopping, ordering food online, watching Netflix, Amazon prime videos, Voot, Hotstar for movies and videos. I think now a time internet becomes a need for all of us. So, the internet is the best place for promoting your product or business online through ads.
Let’s discuss what is digital marketing?
The ability to reach millions of users using your laptop and some skills is exactly Digital Marketing.
Let’s take an example there is an advertisement for Chetan Bhagat’s book “Half Girlfriend” on the front page of the newspaper. It has been published only in Delhi on a typical day. The estimated cost for the ad would be around Rs. 91 Lakh which will be seen by 5 lakh people.
On the other hand, the same advertisement for Chetan Bhagat’s book “Half Girlfriend” on facebook, youtube, ecommerce website all over India.
In traditional marketing involve – Hoarding ads, Newspaper ads, Pamphlet etc. In this, you can’t measure important factors like:
1. Number of people viewing the AD
2. Time spent viewing the AD
3. People who visit the website/store to inquire more
4. Number of people who actually buy because of the paid campaign
There are some reasons why digital marketing is going to be bright in India.

Traditional marketing was limited door to door and marketers were using manpower to promote their institute or product. But now people want everything at their fingertips.
