In this article I have just made a comparison between Traditional/offline marketing and Digital/online Marketing
Different channels of digital marketing is covered in my earlier blogs and I will be covering the same in future blogs as well
Important thing to note is, the words or medium or technology will keep changing, but the fundamental remains the same. It can be online or digital marketing but the fundamental is same; only the medium/technology is different
 So lets look in to  what is marketing, offline marketing  & online marketing.

What is Marketing ?

Marketing is all about creating awareness/educating customers about a product/service.

What is Traditional/Offline Marketing ?

Earlier Days,
1. People have directly met customers at their houses to market their product (Door to Door).
2. Used printed fliers to distribute at your home or public places
3. Ads through Newspaper
4. Ads through Radio, Televisions etc
5. Bill boards at public places
6. Manual books etc at Stores
So, the customers got access to these marketing information at their house and public places
So they consume at Physical locations and consume physical information. This is offline medium

What is Online/Digital Marketing ?

Due to the evolution of internet. People have started to consume information through online mediums like websites, social media, blogs, email etc
