Digital marketing is marketing that makes use of electronic devices (computers) such as personal computers, smartphones, cellphones, tablets and game consoles to engage with stakeholders. Digital marketing applies technologies or platforms such as websites, e-mail, apps (classic and mobile) and social networks. Social Media Marketing is a component of digital marketing. Many organizations use a combination of traditional and digital marketing channels.


The term 'digital marketing' was first used in the 1990s.[1] In the 2000s and the 2010s, digital marketing became more sophisticated as an effective way to create a relationship with the consumer that has depth and relevance.[2]

In 2012 and 2013 statistics showed digital marketing remained a growing field.[3][4]

Digital marketing is often referred to as 'online marketing' or 'internet marketing'. The term 'digital marketing' has grown in popularity over time, particularly in certain countries. In the USA 'online marketing' is still prevalent, but in the UK and worldwide, 'digital marketing' has become the most common term, especially after the year 2013.[5]

Some of the latest developments include[edit]

1. Segmentation: more focus has been placed on segmentation within digital marketing, in order to target specific markets in both business to business and business to consumer sectors.

2. Influencer marketing: Important nodes are identified within related communities, known as influencers. This is becoming an important concept in digital targeting. It is possible to reach influencers via paid advertising, such as Facebook or Google Adsense campaigns, or through sophisticated sCRM (social customer relationship management) software, such as Microsoft Dynamics and Salesforce CRM. Many universities now focus, at Masters level, on engagement strategies for influencers.

To summarize, Pull digital marketing is characterized by consumers actively seeking marketing content while Push digital marketing occurs when marketers send messages without that content being actively sought by the recipients.

Multi-channel communications[edit]

Push and pull message technologies can be used in conjunction. For example, an email campaign can include a banner ad or link to a content download.
