Digital Marketing 101 - Marketing in 2022.

Samso Insight Episode 99: The world of marketing has been changing since the onset of the internet. Digital marketing is now at its most mature where it has evolved into a precise targeting tool.

There are many misconceptions that digital marketing is all about posting pretty pictures and random phrases on social media platforms. The word engagement is often used too loosely to mean someone is listening to or watching your marketing.

In this episode of Samso Insights, we are talking to Ali Raza from Invicta Agency. Ali has a wealth of experience in this field and we have been talking about engagement, targeting of engagement and what digital marketing can do in terms of minimising the cost of marketing.

Today's Samso Insights is about reaching out to connect with customers and providing the story of business. The translation and the projection of messaging is really important as the subtle points often create the most impact.

In the world of mineral exploration companies in the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), there is a lack of understanding of the need to have a brand. The aspect of branding is the key to every business that is out in the marketplace. The act of branding is also the cornerstone of every human being. We brand and market ourselves individually every day to our families and friends.

In some ways, branding is the end result of a digital marketing phase. Marketing in its traditional form is no different to today's digital marketing conversations. The formula is the same but the way we do it is different.

I remember a video I watched a decade ago where the narrative was that the hunter who goes into the forest to hunt for customers comes out empty handed. He meets a guy and asks, "Why are there no customers in the forest?" The reply was, "The customers are now all around water holes called Google, LinkedIn, Twitter...etc."

As Ali Raza points out, the digital marketing space is all about Recent, Frequent and Relevant.

It is this change in view points that is key in getting noticed in the marketplace today in 2022.
