Which digital platforms are best for my business?
The big daddy platforms are Google , Facebook , YouTube and Linkedin. However, there are many other relatively smaller ones like Instagram, reddit, pinterest, snapchat etc that can work wonders for some businesses. The point is that each platform has it’s own flavour in terms of how to target the right audience on it, which demographic of people is it popular with, what kind of products or services seem to get engagement on it and which country it is more popular in. Therefore there is no one size that will fit all.
After our initial consultation with the client and an understanding of the goals for digital marketing, we may propose one or more platforms to choose as part of the digital marketing strategy. Before you spend a single penny, you will have complete clarity on which platforms we will be using , why you would be using those and how will that help in achieving your business goals.
How much will Digital marketing cost me?
The exact answer will depend on the following factors
- What is the product or service you wish to advertise
- Who your target audience is
- Which geographies you wish to advertise in
- What are your goals ( branding, leads, sales )
- Which digital platforms we use to achieve these business goals
Digital marketing however provides you the flexibility to start with a low budget, sometimes as low as a few hundred dollars per month and once you can see your business goals being met, you can easily scale it up as per your needs. Since the results of digital marketing activities are more measurable than the traditional forms, one can easily know which activities to scale up and which to scale down.
