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.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
