Digital Marketing

Hey Neighbors!

Still enjoying sunny Florida!  It is funny because everyone last night was saying how cols it was and I personally was quite comfortable. :)  Maybe it is just me.  Anyway, while traveling we have been keeping up with our favorite restaurants and stores through emails and other online resources.  I LOVE when we are getting ready to go out to eat and I can check my inbox for specials and other coupons!  How much do you rely on digital marketing?  Do any of you own a business and use online marketing for your company"s products or services?  Digital Marketing Kansas City?  I don't know if I have ever received anything from them, but we do receive quite a few internet advertisements daily.

With all the traveling we do, I think I have signed up for hundreds of restaurant email advertisements.  I generally check the dates to see if we will be in their area and then either move them to a special folder or delete them.  I do the same for my favorite shops.  Check the expiration date, look over the ad to see if it is anything I will use and then file it appropriately.  With eight people in the family I am often looking for gifts for upcoming birthdays and shopping online has become one of the easiest and most convenient ways to shop.  This is really necessary when you realize even the nearest Walmart is 35 to 40 minutes away.

Between distance and just plain convenience I really rely on online advertising.  I have a feeling most people do nowadays.  Almost everyone owns some kind of portable electronic device that connects to the internet, whether it is their smart phone, iPod, or tablet.  I mean at Sea World the other day anytime someone had a minute to sit down they immediately pulled one out and started scrolling through or writing someone.  It was actually sort of funny!

I am sure more and more companies are relying on digital marketing to connect with customers and consumers.  It is probably the most effective way to advertise.  So, tell me what you think.  Is digital marketing here to stay?  Would you say it is the best manner to reach the most people?

Thanks for visiting today!  I look forward to seeing you At the Fence soon!

I am not much of a consumer and have no smart phone or tablet. I basically ignore email marketing.
