The internet alone offers a lot of this, with the advent of videos, banners, advertorials, sponsored websites, chat rooms, social media and much more.

Here are a few tips of what’s available for your media arsenal:

Advertise online

If you see an ad over the internet, it will be classified as online advertising. In fact, there are advertisements on this page and on most other websites you visit as they are the main source of income for the Internet. Another way of online advertising is native advertising, the digital version of the old printed advertorials and sponsored content. There are many digital marketing strategies, including placing ads on popular websites and social media sites.

Google Ads

Google Ads allows you to bid on the placement of your ad on the search results page of Google’s search engines. By using keywords or common search terms, queries related to your business and the products and services will appear in search results. For example, a company promoting insurance will appear in all searches for insurance products.

These types of online advertisements can target the local, national and international market. It is up to you how far you go in this and exactly how much exposure you want to gain online.
