When Digital Marketing ?

Digital marketing  after  the product making
Digital marketing begins before making product .

A common perception is that digital  marketing activity starts

after the creation of product & service.

And most of the people do also.

They firstly create a product or service .

Then start digital  marketing and chasing for customer.

They failed to create a class one product as per the need of

market.

A bad product or service makes bad mouth publicity .

Good marketing only helps for negative review and bad

mouth publicity which kills the product quickly .

The loss of the product owner accumulates .

At last ,he went out of the market with burning hands…

Why digital marketing is important?

Digital Marketing starts with understanding the

customer and customer needs that leads to creating a

product which fits in the  market.

No marketing person can sell an unfit product .

Digital Marketing helps to discover the product to the

needy people.

Digital Marketing helps to keep existing customers

happy by communicating with them , so that they can

remain as a customer for life long.

The purpose of digital marketing is to build a brand and

capture the minds of customers.

Digital marketing process

The ultimate aim of marketing is to know and understanding the customer so well to know how the

product and service fit him well.

The world famous marketing guru Peter Drucker says:

“The aim of marketing is to know and understanding the customer so well that the product or service fits him and sells itself”

When a product or service starts to sell itself is the beginning of the success of product .

Repeated customer is the backbone of every business.

A satisfied customer will always refer a product to others by word of mouth.

A product moves in the market without marketing support.

This point of time , the marketing cost will be cut down.

Never let marketing become more important than product.

A great product sells itself.

A great product converts the customer into brand ambassadors .

Their mouth marketing is the best marketing .

Advertising , word of mouth, copy writing, sales , branding are the components of marketing.

What  are the digital marketing strategies?

Digital marketing strategies

One of the  well known strategy is brand building.

Strong brand does not always number one, It always be only one.

Google is the best example. Xerox, Google , Zoom are brand names which have become verbs…!

If anybody tries to make a browser to compete with google is almost impossible because of the market

share & brand value.

It is possible ,If google fails to deliver best service.

Better way for competing with google is to take the position of category leadership- like Practo browser for

doctors .

Choose a hungry market & became the leader of that category.

Deciding of where to compete is the half success.

If not able to compete in main category , pick up a sub category.

Car is a general category . Enter into a general category of car market and get market attention is very difficult .

Choose a sub category of luxury — Like BMW.

Or Sub category of safety-Volvo…

In every field , it is applicable.

People remember number one brand always .

The first person landed in the moon ?

Most of the people remember .

How many of them remember the second person?

Very less People.

Every market becomes into two player market in the long run.

Forget the 3 ,4 , 5 positions…

Enter into a compete market with a unique position.

Only enter into compete market as there is buyers.
