Traditional or Digital Marketing?

The Founder of Infofree.com, Vin Gupta, Discusses Whether Small Businesses Should Focus on Digital or Traditional Marketing

OMAHA, NE--(Marketwired - January 27, 2015) - Entrepreneur.com has posted an article that explores whether small business owners should focus on digital marketing or traditional marketing. The article was written by Vin Gupta, the founder of infofree.com. The company is the premier provider of sales leads, mailing lists and email lists.

Choosing the right marketing mix is the key ingredient in every business's success. It has become especially challenging with the fast evolution of digital marketing. In the article, Gupta states that instead of trying to find one solution for its problems, businesses should think about the context of each campaign, the company's goals and financial constraints. 

"Digital marketing can bring you a high return on investment and access to large audiences," said Gupta. "Traditional marketing remains an important growth driver for many successful businesses… According to the Direct Marketing Association's Statistical Fact Book 2014, almost 80 percent of consumers will act on direct mail immediately compared with 45 percent who say they deal with email straight away."
