The Internet is also proving itself when it comes to business as there is so much business being conducted online through various different online stores and websites. it is an essential tool for just about anyone. precise sound than traditionally. in all sorts of different aspects. Today however. The Internet is the best example of digital media that is widely used by individuals in every country around the world. especially with all the technological changes that are happening in the world today. You can even go to school online depending on the school and whether or not they 5 . to play games. to communicating. One of the most notable changes in the world is the switch over from traditional analog media to digital media. Older. Newspapers are still in existence. digital media is one of the most important things to acknowledge. The Internet allows people to do everything from shopping online. Digital media is not just an essential tool for marketers. Essentially. watching movies and television shows and more. regardless of situation. anything that uses media electronically can be considered digital media.
cell phones were used strictly as a communication resource between two people. from typing of documents. It would probably be a good idea to stay up to date and know about digital media. initially people use to take hours for shopping but now-days everything is accessible online. The world has become smaller people because of the various facilities and technologies available. 6 . 10 years before no one in India knew what mobile phone is but due to advance technology we have an excess to 3G phones currently. The Internet has simply revolutionized the way we live our lives and is incorporated into so many aspects of our day to day life. few years it was impossible to talk to your relatives and friends staying abroad but these days it‘s actually possible with hardly any cost. Along with the Internet. because traditional media methods are in the past and that is probably where they will stay.offer online classes. especially since so many people own and use a cell phone. but now they can do just about everything with little focus on the phone feature. Let us take one more example. cell phones have also come a long way since they were first launched. Most modern cell phones can basically do everything a computer can do. Take an example of Skype. When they were first invented. you just require an internet connection and your call is free. storing pictures and music and even connecting to the Internet. Let‘s take an example. cell phones can just about do it all. the entire technology is changing in the period of just 3 years. Initially we to used to say that the world changes in 10 years that is 1 decade but now due to up gradation of technology and changing scenarios. Cell phones are a perfect example of digital media.

Link Building - Link Building is a tried and tested technique to increase the visibility of your website on search engines.Although it sounds so simple, but it isn‘t. Getting quality websites to link with your website is not easy. Ever since the SEO boom arrived, link building has always been and still is a very important offpage optimization factor. 2. Search Engine marketing Search engine marketing, (SEM), is a form of Internet marketing that seeks to promote websites by increasing their visibility in search engine result pages through the use of, paid placement, contextual advertising, and paid inclusion. SEM uses various means of marketing a website to increase its relevance in search engine results. SEM uses ad words which comprises pay per call (particularly beneficial for local providers as it enables potential consumers to get in touch directly to a company with one click). SEM is a constant and tedious task. It frequently needs to be updated and monitored continually. The following are the steps to a successful SEM plan: 1. Research your target audience. 2. Set your online goals and key performance indicators. 3. Build an initial list of important keywords that represent your current and most relevant content and potential content. 4. Validate your keywords by testing and refining them with your keyword selector tools such as Yahoo Keyword Selector, Google Keyword Selector, Google Trends and Keyword Discovery. 5. Check your current ranking. 6. Optimize the website by improving your web design, architecture and web page content. 7. Pursue link-building and partnerships.
8. Colonize the Web by publishing and circulating it in wiki, blogs, and video and picture sites(e.g. Flickr and Youtube). 9. Get in the news such as Google News with RSS feeds. 10.Install good tracking software, and track and analyze your performance for better results. 3. Pay Per Click (PPC) – PPC helps to get the highest spots on the search engine listings and get the website figured in the top slot instantly. PPC is an Internet advertising model used to direct traffic to websites, where advertisers pay the hosting service when the ad is clicked. With search engines, advertisers typically bid on keyword phrases relevant to their target market. Content sites commonly charge a fixed price per click rather than use a bidding system. Among PPC providers, Google Ad Words, Yahoo! Search Marketing, and Microsoft ad Center are the three largest network operators, and all three operate under a bid-based model. The PPC advertising model is open to abuse through click fraud, although Google and others have implemented automated systems to guard against abusive clicks by competitors or corrupt web developers.
4. Cost per click (CPC) – The cost-per-click (CPC) is the amount the client earns each time a user clicks on their advertisements. The CPC for any advertisement is determined by the advertiser; some advertisers may be willing to pay more per click than others, depending on what they're advertising. Cpc is in a nut shell. Beyond just being "an amount you pay for every click", this metric is important measurements of advertising spend.
A "click" represents a visit; an interaction with your company's product or service offering. Every click in a search engine marketing campaign represents attention from a person who is searching for something. Searching for something, and using words you've deemed relevant to your business to do it. Cost-per click is important because it is the number that is going to determine the financial success of your paid search campaigns. Your return on investment, whether you're over or under paying for each action, will be determined by how much you are paying for clicks, and by what kind of quality you are getting for that investment. 5. Cost per lead (CPL) – Providing enough incentive, even to a non-de-script advertiser, so that though situated miles away, puts in efforts to advertise the clients firm and create adequate and relevant leads. Binary helps to come across such advertisers and also helps you decide as to what is the level of incentive that can be considered as adequate, competitive and sufficient to keep the advertisers and lead generator loyal to the organization. Cost Per Lead Advertising (CPL) is a form of performance-based advertising and is common in affiliate marketing. In this payment method, the Advertiser only pays the Affiliate (also referred to as a Publisher or Lead Seller) for the leads generated by the ads. A recent study found inbound lead generation to be far more cost-efficient than outbound marketing strategies. The study was completed by 167 professionals involved in their business‘ marketing strategy. They consisted of business owners, entrepreneurs, executives, and sales people in businesses of all sizes. Almost ¾ of the companies were involved in the business-to-business sector and were involved in business or professional services.
Respondents spent about 37% of their lead generating budgets on inbound marketing techniques and about 30% of the budges on outbound techniques – such as direct mail, trade shows and telemarketing. The findings indicate that companies spent about $84/per lead using the inbound marketing techniques and a whopping $220/per lead using outbound marketing techniques. The average lead generation budget spending is illustrated in the following example:
6. Cost per thousand impressions generated (CPM) The CPM is the amount an advertiser pays for every 1000 times a user views his/her ad and an impression is recorded. CPM (cost per thousand impressions) advertising is still an effective way of reaching potential customers on the Web. Instead of paying per click, in a CPM campaign you purchase a set amount of impressions. An impression is a single instance of an ad appearing on a Web site.
you may pay $3 for 1. you could but 1. or CPC. If your ad receives a click-through ratio of just 1 percent.000 impressions.6 seconds. Illustration:In CPC-based advertising. 10 clicks costs you $10. you pay for each click your ad receives. you could but 1. 38 . Instead of paying per click. In a CPM-based campaign. If your ad receives a click-through ratio of just 1 percent. while a graphical ad only averaged 1. you may pay $3 for 1. Current results have shown that text-based CPM ads often receive more attention that traditional banner ads. let's compare the overall expense of two similar campaigns. advertising is enjoying great popularity. An impression is a single instance of an ad appearing on a Web site. In fact. CPM (cost per thousand impressions) advertising is still an effective way of reaching potential customers on the Web. CPM-based advertising may be more suited for your company if your desired keywords are very popular and expensive. In a CPM-based campaign. This can add up over time.000 impressions. This can add up over time.000 ad impressions. CPM-based advertising can be a cost-effective alternative to CPC deals. the average view time for a text based ad averaged 7 seconds. To illustrate this point. Although cost-per-click. Let us say that you are spending $1 for each click.CPM-based advertising may be more suited for your company if your desired keywords are very popular and expensive. Text CPM ads are starting to become more popular and may be a viable alternative to CPCbased advertising. in a CPM campaign you purchase a set amount of impressions. you're paying $3 for the same 10 clicks.000 ad impressions. Instead of paying $5 for a single click. Instead of paying $5 for a single click. you're paying $3 for the same 10 clicks.
