Why Your Small Business Should Invest In Digital Marketing

Image Credit


The advancements in technology have impacted various sectors significantly. With the marketplace becoming more digital, the benefits of digital marketing are becoming very widespread. For this reason, your small business should take advantage of this and invest in digital marketing strategies. Still not convinced? No problem! Here are four more reasons why your small business should take the step in investing in digital marketing today.


  1. A measurable form of marketing


Unlike traditional marketing, employing digital marketing strategies makes it easier to measure your marketing strategy’s effectiveness. For example, if your small business uses radio and television advertisements for marketing its goods and services, it would be impossible to track origin leads without asking each customer who visits your business. With digital marketing, various software programs such as Userzoom and Google Analytics let you know if your marketing strategies are effective. This is done by measuring your marketing campaigns in real-time using various metrics such as clicks, shares, conversions, and comments. This gives you the chance to adjust your marketing strategies where necessary and improve future campaigns.


  1. Cost-effective


From creating television commercials to newspaper ads and billboards, the traditional form of marketing needs a huge budget to effectively attract potential customers. Digital marketing gives you the chance to do the same but at a much lower cost. Tactics such as social media advertising, content marketing, SEO, and pay-per-click options offer an affordable way to market your goods and services. So, invest in digital marketing today to have budget-friendly marketing options for your small business. 


  1. Target your ideal customers


Adopting the traditional form of marketing, in many ways, limits your chances of reaching your ideal customers. For example, placing an advert in the newspaper, hoping that your teenage target group sees it is risky, ineffective, and expensive. Although it is not impossible to reach your target audience with traditional marketing forms, it is particularly challenging to do so. However, with digital marketing, this has been simplified. You can use Search Engine Optimization (SEO) advertising to reach your ideal customers. With this strategy, your products would be available to persons who search for keywords or phrases associated with your product in a search engine. With social media pages such as Instagram and Facebook, you can use the “promote” feature where your small business would be advertised to users who have shown an interest in the type of service you offer.


  1. Reach customers beyond your physical borders


Assuming you mount a billboard of your small business in one state, on one street, in one city. It would mean that you would most likely be missing out on other potential customers because they may not see your advertisement. However, this does not have to be the case when you use digital marketing strategies. You can reach a broader range of people who may have otherwise missed out on your traditional form of marketing. 


Switch to digital forms of marketing to experience numerous benefits through effective online strategies.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
