The costs of print, television, and direct mail advertising add up quickly, and can easily blow through a companies budget. Going digital eliminates a lot of the costs of advertising, while allowing the company to reach a wider audience. Business can now create websites, use social media or use tools such as Facebook Ads all at low to no costs to get their brand out. The use of digital media does not have to replace traditional marketing but rather can be used as a strategy to bring in a wider audience while potentially saving money rather than spending.
The digital world allows businesses to enhance customer satisfaction and build relationships with consumers like never before. Digital use allows consumers to reach out to businesses with more speed and effectiveness, make purchases immediately, and research the company – its history, values, current affairs etc. Marketers need to head in the direction of the market, well consumers are facing screens – phones, laptops, tablets, you name it. You know where they are, its time to use it!

Also, through the use of social media businesses can show consumers a side they may have never seen. Showing off different aspects can make a big difference in today’s competitive market. Bringing this into perspective, when a consumer is choosing between which bank they’d prefer, the simple fact that one engages in community service often could be the winning factor.
