Discover the Best Digital Marketing Classes in San Francisco

The field of digital marketing was a direct result of the birth of the internet. It is the strategy of leveraging digital channels (like websites, social media, search engine optimization, and email) to market products and services to customers. There are eight types of digital marketing – search engine optimization (SEO), pay-per-click, social media marketing, content marketing, email marketing, mobile marketing, marketing analytics, and affiliate marketing – and each of these helps companies to connect with the modern-day consumer and increase sales. 

Digital marketing picks up where traditional marketing leaves off. You can’t interact with a business through a billboard or print ad, but you can engage in two-way communication with a business through articles, emails, and social media platforms. Liking posts, leaving comments, and clicking links can only be done through digital marketing tactics. 

Leveraging the time people spend on screens (like phones and laptops), digital marketing promotes business products and services across the internet and is now a crucial part of any business’s marketing strategy.
