Digital Advertising Pushes Forward, Evolving the Advertising Industry

Digital advertising is blossoming.

Adland has evolved drastically in the last ten years from a place that was once excited by cheap, fast and trashy advertisements.  In “The End of Advertising,” by Andrew Essex, Essex describes the history of advertising to where it is today (Essex, 10).

The advertising industry, once focused on producing advertisements, which simply sold products, has flourished into high-end business that caters towards creating creative, digital advertisements, which are focused on the new modern, digital, often mobile, consumer (Essex, 11).

Adland has changed to suit the needs of consumers in the 21st century.  After websites, informational sites, social media platforms, and google all became widely accessible, marketers realized that internet advertising had great potential, and turned their attention to digital advertising (Essex, 25).

Digital advertising was not without its obstacles.  Consumers who were annoyed by internet pop-up ads were soon paying for ad-blocking software (Essex, 16). These advertisements were not exactly favorable.

However, several years later Google Adwords, and Analytics emerged and streamlined digital advertising, making it what it is today.

Google and Facebook now dominate the digital advertising industry, and together, are responsible for over 60% of digital advertising in the USA (“Small Businesses Crowd Facebook, Twitter..”, 2017).

Google and Facebook are able to target consumers based on their online searches and spending, as today nearly everyone is on online (“Small Businesses Crowd Facebook, Twitter..”, 2017).

Online advertising, today, has a social element that results in a dynamic, ongoing interaction between the seller and consumer, which means marketers are continuously being updated about what is popular and desirable to consumers (“Small Businesses Crowd Facebook, Twitter..”, 2017).

Social, digital advertising in the modern world is about keeping a continuous conversation with the consumer, instead of simply selling.

Positioning Leads to Long-Term Growth for Companies That Hope to Develop Into Successful Corporations

Positioning is an Important Strategy for Effective Digital Marketing Companies

Positioning Helps Companies Go Far in the Long-Run

Often leading companies get marketing wrong.  DNA-based methodology creates an authentic relationships with consumers, offering ways to purchase products, which they care about.  Corporations that understand positioning, a technique described by Andy Cunningham, seasoned Silicon Valley technology marketer, do really well in comparison to companies that jump into the market with hastily, and brash marketing strategies aimed at making quick sales, which hassle consumers, losing their trust easily (Cunningham, 2018).

Positioning is a technique which requires marketers to understand consumer behavior, and the rational authentic position for their market.  Popular social media companies, which partner with retailers of successful products are sure to generate high revenues, quickly evolving from small companies with few customers, to great corporations that are successful and understand their consumers.  Developing an elaborate marketing strategy, and later a “brand,” as Cunningham wonderfully explains in her book, “get to aha!: Discover Your Positioning DNA and Dominate Your Competition”, requires positioning, understanding the DNA behind a product.  Positioning gives marketers time to understand the market valuation of their product, before they can move forward and decide how to pay for a marketing strategy, and develop a brand, which can be successful.  Successful business people working in digital media should use positioning to gauge the market and develop complex narratives, copywriting, and advertisements, like billboards, which can continue to develop authentic relationships with consumers over time.  Digital marketing involves partnering with social media companies which can help products get publicity, and generate revenue for small businesses hoping to successfully develop into billion-dollar corporations (Cunningham, 2017).

Business people who hastily, and desperately try to make sales without understanding the DNA of their companies, can run out of profits after a few months, and fail (Cunningham, 2017).
