Top 5 Reasons Why Marketing is Shifting to Digital

       

In: Strategy Insights

Over 50% of marketers are currently increasing their digital budgets. Here are some of the reasons this dynamic shift to digital is happening and can’t be ignored:

1: It’s Less Expensive

Studies show that average costs per lead cost 61% less through inbound digital marketing channels when compared to traditional outbound media.
Customers are becoming smarter and learning to leverage the internet to research products and services before they buy. This includes the use of search engines, online review sites, and comparison shopping sites to find the company’s website that best meets their needs. If your website is not search engine-optimized and user friendly, you are missing out on potential sales and visits!

2: Larger Audience and Reach

Nearly 97% of consumers use online media to research and find products prior to making a purchase.

3: It’s More Effective

Leads from organic search results are 750% more likely to close compared to leads from traditional media.

5: Advanced Targeting

Digital marketing offers more ways to target unique and specific audiences and demographics than traditional media. 
While traditional methods (radio, TV, print) focus on reaching broad audiences and large volumes of people, digital is able to be much more refined to target the specific audience that is interested in and searching for your product/service. The results are less wasted marketing dollars and more sales!
