Email, social media, pop up ads and website banners ads are all key tools for a digital marketing strategy. Digital marketing is the promotion of products or services using one or more forms of electronic media to connect consumers to a company’s website.

Email is a trackable advertising communication delivered to an online address. Ads can be text only or contain images, videos, or links to other websites. If metrics show an email is not performing well, marketers can quickly make changes to the ad, product, or offer.

Social media marketing focuses on creating content that attracts a consumer’s attention and will encourage sharing across social networks. This form of marketing, which is relatively inexpensive, is driven by word-of-mouth, meaning it is earned media rather than paid media. As popular as it is, it is hard to quantify to what extent social media marketing actually contributes to a company’s profit.

Pop-up ads are a form of internet advertising used to reach on-line consumers as they search for a keyword or term. The goal is to capture the user’s email address for future advertising.

Website banner ads appear as on-line display advertising. The goal is to capture the company’s website by enticing the consumer to click on the banner ad, be linked to the site and provide email information.

This page contains digital marketing research on how various digital channels are used to grab the consumer’s attention, drive traffic to a desired channel, and increase sales in today’s technologically driven society.
