The advent of digital marketing has changed how we connect with potential clients and other professionals. But how many of us can offer a firm explanation for what digital marketing is? How often do we let ourselves get confused and bewildered by all the jargon and terminology? What effective strategies are there for making the most of digital marketing resources such as websites, social media and search engines? The purpose of this paper is to examine just how digital technologies have changed our approach to marketing and how we can take advantage of this without breaking the bank.
