Brands surround us in our everyday lives. People may judge others by their brand of car, their brand of clothes or the brand of drinks they consume. Brands can help give people identity and image. Because of this, marketing is often brand driven, with the objective of establishing a product (good or service) with a separate identity in consumers’ minds, making the product desirable, wanted and even needed. Messages are carefully crafted to build customer views and expectations of the products associated with the brand.
Constant advances in digital-based processes and systems, and changes in customer behaviour and their use of social media, present a challenge for businesses who work to maintain, develop or reinforce their brand identity. Businesses invest a huge amount of effort and resources to ensure that the customer recognises and responds to their brand identity in the right way.

Digital marketing

Digital Marketing is much broader than just webshops and e-commerce. Think of Search Engine Optimization, Search Engine Advertising, Social Media, Google Analytics and Google Adwords.
It is important to understand the role of digital marketing in identifying and satisfying customers. Therefore the focus is on the purpose of digital marketing in a business, the specific aims and objectives of this function and the benefits of, and concerns about, digital marketing. Using the different delivery methods and key performance indicators (KPIs) to evaluate the success of the digital message.
