Digital Marketing Components


We all know that Marketing strategy is to ensure that your message addresses your consumer’s wants & needs. This is where the place of content marketing arises on digital media platforms through the creation & distribution of content (in the form of text, images, video, info-graphic). Some of the popular Digital Marketing tactics include Organic SEO, Social media Marketing, Conversion Optimization, Split Testing, Mobile Marketing and Paid Advertisements.  By leveraging both organic and paid Ad methods Digital Marketing gives marketers highest ROI(Return On Investment) for than any other traditional marketing; be it – Newspaper Ads, Trade shows, Television Ads, Billboards or Tele-calling.

Traditional media such as TV and Newspaper advertisements doesn’t offer any feedback loop or analytical report about the Ad campaign performance. This is where Digital Marketing excels with Digital Marketing measurement tools you can find out how often your prospects talk about (a company or product), how people respond, who they talk to, and how they influence others to buy the product. Hence campaigns can be better planned, run and managed with focus on ROMI(Return on Marketing Investment).

A small word of caution!


Digital marketing is more of a mindset than knowing just a mere set of tools and tricks. There are several other institutes who give SEO or PPC or a mix of both and brand it as a Digital Marketing course. Only the right trainer (ask for his certification) with relevant experience in handling Digital Marketing campaigns (ask him to show campaign history performance) can coach and groom you in the right way.



Google is earning $42 billion+ a year just from Paid Ads yearly. Digital Marketing spends are increasing year on year vs traditional marketing spends and the need for talented and trained professionals are increasing in both small, medium and MNCs.

The verdict

As Marketing is a core function of any business of any size and any industry – need for marketers are more than bankers, programmers and designers across so many industries in India & abroad. It doesn’t matter if you want to join NIIT or Learnpact; what matters is:  do you want to start a career in Digital Marketing? Rest Google it 🙂
