Why is this the case?
With traditional marketing methods the costs are increasingly rising. With direct mail alone, 1,000 single page inserts could cost as much as $40-$50 and the response rate is getting worse by the day.
Where as, with digital marketing the cost can be extremely low with a very high ROI (Return Of Investment). Plus,the most effective because one can target their audience by providing valuable content that educates and informs them while attracting them to a website, blog, product or service.
But let’s ask the question and see if anyone can relate.

Unlike businesses who simply focus on the bottom line.
