Print marketing campaigns are now no more commonplace than Internet marketing campaigns. Internet marketing campaigns are now ruling the roost, and the consumer space. Internet marketing offers limitless potential. Given the nature of the Internet, there are tens and thousands of avenues for Internet marketing to penetrate into.
Millions of web-based content platforms enable Internet marketers to use it to leverage advertising inductions. It is much more inexpensive than print advertisements in large newspaper publications. Offering flexibility, Internet ads can be replaced deftly in the background without displacing their places on a website’s advertising real estate. Print advertisements do not offer this flexibility. They have to place another version of the same ad in another issue of the publication, and so on.
Internet marketing has come a long way from being a choice to a compulsion. It is as good as print advertising or even more. Unlike print ads that are restricted by geography, Internet ads can be viewed by anyone in the world. Imagine a print ad coming in a local publication. This print ad will only be viewed by people who have bought this publication in that region. Some publications do have multiple regions of coverage, but that is about it.
On the other hand Internet ads rely on user searches to come into the picture. A website can be accessed from anywhere in the world. Internet surfers can read contents of a website from anywhere in the world. It does not matter where the website was made, or where the content was posted. Internet content is for everyone, and so are Internet ads.
Print ads hog valuable space in magazines and newspapers. By doing so, they might only irk the reader. Print ads are also not context-based all the time. Except for magazines, newspapers place print advertisements devoid of any cognizance towards the relevancy of the ad to the contents on the page. This is another area where Internet advertising scores by being context-based.
