From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Digital marketing is advertising delivered through digital channels. It is a type of marketing that is done online and has an effect on offline business. It is done online, using things like search engines, social media, email, and other websites to connect with current and potential customers.[1][2][3]

Because computers and cell phones are used more now, marketing has changed. Now businesses are using the Internet to market their product or services.[4]

Differences from traditional marketing

Digital Marketing is different from traditional marketing. Traditional marketing uses offline channels, while digital marketing uses online channels. A traditional marketing campaign, for example, may use billboards, radio ads, and news stories, while a digital marketing campaign may use social media, blog posts, and email to promote a business and its offerings.


The word "digital marketing"[5] first came in the 1990s and the first internet ad was in 1994.[6][7] Today, digital marketing has become an essential part of advertising with many institutions offering courses due to this demand.
