I’ve been in the marketing game for over 20 years. Things have definetly changed. I’ve seen many trends over years. But as much as it has changed… It’s also kinda been the same.

Traditional marketing, which typically includes print ads and billboards, and digital marketing have some key differences and similarities. Traditionally businesses had a location such as a storefront or office. We would use advertising such as magazines, newspapers, radio, and television to persuade potential clients to call or visit our location. Today much of our work and social time is being spent online.


  1. Targeting: Traditional marketing methods typically target a broader audience through print ads, billboards, or TV commercials. Digital marketing, on the other hand, can target specific audiences using data, such as demographics, interests, and behaviors, to create targeted campaigns.
  2. Cost: Traditional marketing methods can be expensive due to the production and distribution costs associated with creating print ads or billboards. Digital marketing is often less expensive because it can be created and distributed online at a lower cost.
  3. Reach: Traditional marketing methods can have a limited reach, as they rely on physical placement or distribution. Digital marketing, however, can reach a wider audience through online channels, such as social media, email, and search engines.


  1. Branding: Both traditional and digital marketing methods can be used to build brand awareness and promote a company’s products or services.
  2. Content: Both traditional and digital marketing rely on creating compelling content that appeals to a target audience.
  3. Engagement: Both traditional and digital marketing aim to engage with potential customers to build relationships and create loyalty.
  4. Measurement: Both traditional and digital marketing can be measured using metrics such as reach, engagement, and return on investment.

While there are differences between traditional and digital marketing, both can be effective when used strategically. In some cases, a combination of both traditional and digital marketing can be most effective, as each can complement the other’s strengths and weaknesses. Ultimately, the choice of marketing approach will depend on a company’s goals, target audience, and available resources.
