Fundamentals Of Marketing.

We learn from marketing that we cannot create demand. We can Just tap into what desire is already there.

Many people think they can just create a product, or a marketing campaign around whatever they want.

This is incorrect. You just need to focus on what the market wants. It’s more powerful than you.

Human desire is what drives everything.

It flows like a river. You cannot fight it. Only swim with it. If you can find a big river, and swim with it, you can make a lot of money.

The tricky part is, unlike a river, human desire moves, it’s finicky, it likes to chase. It is self referential, meaning as soon as you satisfy it, it changes and looks for something else. Never staying entirety constant.

Digital Marketing Vs Traditional Marketing.

· Common Traditional Marketing methods are :-

Directly mailed postcards, coupons, and informational packets

· Television or radio commercials

· Newspaper or magazine ads

· Billboards and fliers

· Telephone calls and text notifications

We see and hear many of these ads every day just by listening to the radio on the way to work or even looking out the window at the billboards as we go by. They’ve become a part of daily life.

Common Digital Marketing ways are :-

Common digital marketing methods include:

· Website content

· Email campaigns

· Content marketing

· Social media posts

Pros of Traditional marketing

If you want to reach an older demographic, traditional marketing can be very effective. According to Globe news wire, audiences ages 50+ spend almost twice as much time reading the newspaper and watching TV as compared to those ages 21–34.

· This type of marketing strategy usually works best for businesses looking to build a larger local audience. A small business would be better off competing for attention through billboards, flyers, and events rather than trying to compete for digital space against larger businesses.

· TV or radio commercials will play multiple times and remind the audience of the business, whereas digital marketing items may be skipped through or blocked (e.g., clicking “I don’t want to see this” on social media ads, or skipping through ads before YouTube videos).

Pros of digital marketing

Data and audience involvement can be tracked instantly. When someone clicks on a link to your site, reads an email, or follows you on social media, you have that information immediately. You can draw numerous insights from this data, including which type of content works best for a specific audience, which mediums are the most effective, and even what time of day receives the best engagement.

· Digital marketing strategies incur a much lower cost. Sending out an email campaign can save a lot of money compared to printing individual postcards and paying for postage on each.

· It works well for more global or scattered audiences because of the broad scope of digital marketing..

Which One is Better?

So, which strategy wins when comparing traditional marketing vs. digital marketing?

The short answer: it depends.

The long answer:

Digital marketing is probably the best option for most. If you want to reach a particular group of people, wherever they may be, while keeping costs low, go with digital marketing. Doing so will also allow you to collect valuable information on your audience immediately so that you can create even more effective marketing campaigns.

However, there is still a place for traditional marketing. If you want to reach an older audience or a local audience, traditional marketing methods may be more productive and stand out better than digital marketing methods. Though these methods may seem “old,” the reality is that they’ve stuck around for a reason. They work!

Personal Branding.

Your personal brand is how you promote yourself. It is the unique combination of skills, experience, and personality that you want the world to see you. It is the telling of your story, and how it reflects your conduct, behavior, spoken and unspoken words, and attitudes.

You use your personal branding to differentiate yourself from other people. Done well, you can tie your personal branding in with your business in ways no corporate branding can possibly succeed.

Professionally, your personal brand is the image that people see of you. It can be a combination of how they look at you in real life, how the media portrays you, and the impression that people gain from the information about you available online.

You can either ignore your personal brand, and let it develop organically, possibly chaotically, beyond your control, or you can help massage your personal brand to depict you as the person you want to be.

In the pre-internet days, your personal brand was really just your business card. Unless you were high profile in the media or somebody who featured strongly as the face of advertising, few people would have heard of you. In today’s highly public world, where every little action is discussed at length on social media, you are far less anonymous.
