Digital Marketing strategies can be used to clearly measure how much return on investment an organization can expect. With traditional advertising campaigns, clients get insight on how many people utilize your promotion, but often enough, the data collected is not entirely accurate. With digital media marketing, you can negate this issue by implementing various strategies to consistently measure the effectiveness of your campaign. Everything is quantifiable. It is because of this ability to concretely determine the success of your efforts, that companies are getting more involved with digital media marketing. The only trouble with this shift in the market is that many corporations don’t fully understand the ins and outs of social media and digital media marketing. This lack of clarity on the subject matter has created a number of inaccuracies. Here are 5 Marketing Myths about Digital marketing, Presented by Fat Guy Media. It’s finally time we dispel them, one bite at a time.
Every Social Media Account Will Generate Millions of Followers and Dozens of Leads!
Paying someone to put together a digital marketing campaign for your business doesn’t always equate to instant stardom. Fame, in the digital marketing world, does not come easily. Sometimes, it takes a while for campaigns to get off the ground but luckily, there are ways companies can speed up the process. The most important thing to take into consideration is that as time progresses, the effectiveness of your campaign increases. Patience is key. Keep in mind that the number of likes doesn’t necessarily equate to the number of leads. Yes, it is important to generate a following in order to extend your reach, but keep in mind that you want to generate quality leads, more than anything else. A thousand active followers is far better than a million inactive ones. Quality over quantity.
I Launched My Campaign Last Week, I Should Be on Google’s First Page!

What you can do, to increase the likelihood of raising your search engine result page position, (SERP) is continue to provide valuable content to your audience.
I Need to Be on Every Social Media Platform!
Consider your target audience, consider your geographic location, and consider the type of business you are in.

When deciding which social media platforms to utilize, or determining whether you want to use landing pages or email campaigns, you must consider your goals and objectives.
