As far as cost is concerned digital marketing is the most cost effectual. If we talk about billboards, the print cost is costly and getting it up is another tedious task.
But we can’t out focus the approach of a newspaper advertisement. But overall digital marketing is better because of its approach at a minimum cost. The customer overseas could be achieved at the same cost a billboard is set up for a local audience.

Going digital means you can have an eye on the number of visitors, the conversion, the purchases sales and so forth but it’s impossible in case of traditional marketing. The billboards are seen by the people but how many get in to purchase or finally becomes the customer always remain unknown.
The digital marketing follows two-way communications but it seems vague if we talk about the traditional marketing. The advertisements we get in the newspaper are just the print and message conveyed by the advertiser it doesn’t involve their reaction. But in case of traditional marketing, the consumer perception becomes the foundation of marketing.
If we talk about traditional marketing how often have you seen anything getting viral due to billboards or magazines? It’s as rare as it seems. But it’s common if we talk about digital marketing. Digital marketing paves a way to globalization.
