Howdy mates,

I’m pretty sure that everybody knows or have heard the term “Digital Marketing” but is it really that important for your business growth? The answer is a big YES and we’re gonna see why?

So to start with, nowadays any small or medium-sized business (at least most of them) are utilizing social or online platforms to increase their visibility to drive more sales or conversions.

Let’s say that you have a website and it drives huge traffic but having huge traffic alone doesn’t mean more business (it kind of is but) unless you try to convert the visitors into sales. That’s where digital marketing comes into play. Online marketing provides entrepreneurs and businesses the possibility of survival and growth.
