Moving Your Business From Traditional Media and Toward Online Marketing

People have less time and patience to read, listen and hear your message. You have less time to get the message across, so you need to use a medium that can deliver your announcements with speed, delivers your message to your target market and causes people to take action in the most simple and easy manner.

The internet has given businesses an easy, fast and low cost option for advertising. It has also provided direct interaction between the business and its clients, by way of blogs, social networks, podcasts and online video. Consumers are moving online because they can get their information for free and can do that from the comfort of home, without needing to go to the store for a paper or magazine. Your potential clients also have greater control over what they see. They are able to simply click away, if what they are looking at is not relevant to them.

The traditional media are losing audiences to the internet, in droves. Particularly with more people concerned about declining resources, rising fuel costs and global warming. Why buy a newspaper each day, which contributes to deforestation, or drive to a large shopping center using your own car and fuel, when you can have things delivered through the post by ordering online? As the price of fuel increases, the cost of print media is also rising.

Globally conscious consumers may also not be delighted at seeing hundreds of fliers bulking up their mailboxes, and if your business is one that contributes to the paper wastage, this might not leave a very favourable imprint with the recipient.
