New School vs Old School

Traditional marketing is a plain vanilla marketing methodology that is being followed by many people worldwide, and we have all encountered this method at some point. It is a standard offline method of marketing that is used to engage the audience with various promotional and ad tools like- banners, flyers, billboards, telemarketing, television ads, etc. People with different interests and domains can see these ads whether relevant to them or not. So, the audience is not explicitly targeted in this case. This methodology is the main source of income for many industries like television, sports, newspapers, etc.

Traditional marketing is quite difficult to neglect as it is part of all our daily offline life interactions.Let’s review the five main categories.

  1. Print media (newspapers, books, magazines, posters, etc.)

  2. Broadcasting industry (Television and Radio are the main sources)

  3. Postal Services (catalogs, brochure, etc.)

  4. Telephone (SMS marketing, outbound marketing campaigns, etc.)

  5. Outdoor (banners, billboards, flags, etc.)

High-speed internet and increased people engagement toward social media platforms and other online spaces have opened the new doors of digital marketing. The marketers and entrepreneurs have seen the opportunity and now primarily use these platforms to engage customers. Due to COVID-19, which resulted in a worldwide lockdown, new precedents like social distancing, the online transformation of brick-and-mortar businesses have increased the value and need for digital marketing.  Moreover, the huge data-set available online helped tech giants to make intelligence systems that can track a specific audience that may be interested in your product or vision. This clearly shows when we are comparing traditional vs digital marketing, digital marketing has many inducements that make it better from traditional marketing. The following research shows how digital marketing is lucrative for businesses.
