Jul 9, 2018 3:04AM PDT

Digital Marketing is simply marketing of products and business using digital channels to reach the consumers. The main motive is to promote the business using different digital platforms. Digital marketing extends beyond internet marketing to include channels that do not require the use of the internet.

Digital Marketing in simple language is the promotion of business on the internet using different Electronic Media. It is different from the traditional marketing plans. As a subset of traditional marketing, Digital Marketing goes beyond the internet to include short messages service (SMS), search engine optimization (SEO), social media platforms, online banners and many more to promote the business.
Digital Marketing is used to just promote the business and its products and services. It is widely used by the people for different purposes. For example, political parties use digital marketing for targeting the voters through sending them positive messages and about the parties schemes and policies.

Similarly, a businessman can use digital marketing for promoting the products and informing about the services which they provide. As we know people use the internet so much, so it is beneficial to promote the business and services online instead of offline. Online Marketing is beneficial in many ways.

Types of digital marketing:
1. Search Engine Optimization
2. Content Marketing
3. Affiliated Marketing
4. Social Media Marketing
5. Pay Per Click
6. Email Marketing
