Internet marketing fits the consideration and research phase of the customer journey. When someone has a need and is "searching" the internet is one of the first places a consumer will turn, hence a great place to focus business efforts. In contrast, many businesses focus on internet marketing before considering phase one of the consumer journey, which is awareness. (ex; Branding and direct marketing such as print) to David Cottrell's point. With this said it's important that internet marketing is viewed as a channel not the end all. Did you know Google sends direct mail to prospects?

@grant gooley Good point about Google and direct mail. - David 17 months ago

The internet is just another outlet to market products or services to potential and existing customers. Depending on the demographic of the customer base, online marketing might meet all of ones needs. However, it might not and more traditional methods must still be used.

Agreed. Whatever modality is used, it’s about marketing relevant and differentiated solutions in the right way, at the right time, to the right customer via storytelling to elicit the favored emotional response. - Vic 17 months ago
