    In this age, digital marketing exceeds traditional marketing many folds. Traditional marketing won't be going away anytime soon, but digital is more effective if you know how to use it to target your audience.

    If you want short time result you will go with digital marketing.
    If you want permanent and stable solution for your business then you should go with traditional.

    Of course, no one asked important questions before answering such as "what kind of business do you have?"

    For example, a guy with a car washing service in a tiny town may get much more traction by focusing on local marketing while still doing some online basics. Having a billion people on FB won't help him at all, in this case, but some brochures put under windshields at the local grocery store parking lot may.

    As per my opinion digital marketing . because as know everybody uses cell phone and having laptops and conected with the internet in this world ,watching TV , So you can easily share everything to everyone. Traditional marketing having some limitationns .
    In this you are only avail to cover up a region or say small region but with the elp of digital marketing you are avail coverp the whole world .

    -Digital marketing is the best option to advertise your business.
    -Using backlink building on the third-party website you can drive traffic to your website and make more leads it may convert to clients.
    - By posting on social sites you connect to many people and can explore your product.

    It depends on what you are marketing! Digital marketing is gaining popularity because of its ease of accessibility and good reach of the audience.

  • A book that I found very valuable in understanding ALL the marketing channels available and determining which ones to test/pursue for your business is the book "Traction" by Mares and Weinberg.

    You can read each chapter and get a 101 view of all the IM and traditional marketing mediums that you can pursue and think in your head after each chapter if that medium would make sense to pursue for your business.

    Might help you better understand all the options available to you!

    It will depend on the type of business that you have.

    If you have an online type business, digital marketing is going to be very effective.

    If your business has nothing to do with tech or the internet, such as a local grocery store or pizza shop, you might want to look into traditional marketing.

    I would assume most people on this forum would recommend digital.

    What are you thinking right now? What are you trying to promote?

    Lot's of advice and answers, but simply stated, your questions should be asked after many other questions. Stay connected to the problem you're solving for people, know who they are, and you'll know better what marketing mix to use when reaching them.

    Obviously you should be start with digital marketing.

    when you will be do digital marketing you will find that it's less expensive than traditional marketing.

    digital marketing is more targeted than traditional marketing.

    you can start digital marketing right now and for traditional marketing you need to do a lot of things like contacting to the Billboard creator stuff that you need a lot of things.

    you can easily track everything in digital marketing but you cannot read anything in traditional marketing.

    you can start digital marketing with less than $500.

    When you are going to see the returns from there you can simply use that money again and invest it again in Digital marketing and then take the return out and then invest again you can simply keep on Repeating this process and you will see good growth.
