Take a look at the most overlooked Digital Media channels that every business needs to consider while determining which ad platforms to use.

Social Media Marketing:

Social Media is everybody’s best friend. A day without social media is a day wasted, millennials say. I bet you would agree too!

Social Media encourages people to share opinions, join in discussions and connect with others in real time. Social Media Marketing is one of the best ways to promote/ advertise your business and interact with your customers. Every digital marketing tool is distinctive and serves its own purpose. Having said that, it is important to identify and work on your company’s goals and your prospective audience accordingly, to obtain excellent results.

Not every user who sees your ad will likely be interested in your product and this could be a real challenge. So, businesses need to be extremely creative to figure out ways and grab the attention of their targeted audience. Businesses need to maintain continuous communication with their prospects to understand them better.
Social Media Platforms include – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, to name a few of the main ones.

Video Marketing:

Video and Marketing go together like mac and cheese.

From traditional television advertisements to today’s Snapchat, Facebook Live, YouTube, Instagram Reels, it’s no wonder that videos have become an essential part of the marketing world.

Videos are a convenient, versatile and shareable medium that help businesses maximize engagement. In fact, studies show that videos are 600% more effective than print and direct marketing.

Businesses can easily convey their goals and objectives in an interesting way, with a captivating narration in a less time. Placing videos on your website and on landing pages boosts your customer’s engagement-time, enhancing the chance of making a purchase.

Make sure your video does not exceed 60 Seconds. Because that’s how short your customer’s attention span is. Currently, for some Social platforms, it’s as short as 10 seconds!!

Videos are truly the future of marketing!

Content Marketing:

Content Marketing is yet another important marketing practice that businesses must include in their marketing strategy. Content marketing focuses on creating and distributing content to target audiences. Content that is relevant, consistent and fresh improves the chances for a customer/prospect to take an action.

The crucial part here is Relevance and Quality. This is what sets the business apart from traditional ‘spammy’ advertisements. The content must be consumable, irrespective of the digital media channel.

No matter how attractive your creative i.e. the images, gifs, webpage, carousel, etc. is, without quality content, the message will not be conveyed to your consumer. So a balance of visuals and content is necessary.

Some content marketing examples include: blog posts, videos, ebooks, podcasts, infographics, and so on.
For example, Amul is best known for its creative ad practices. Take a look at these ads for instance.
