Choosing Channels: Brands Shift from Television to Digital

In the past 50 years, brands had to rely on big media budgets and large television networks in order to sell products. While television still helps with credibility, brands no longer need massive television networks in order to sell their products. With so many various platforms in digital advertising and social media, brands can specify and target a detailed demographic using online video without having to worry about a massive media budget.

Choosing a Channel

There has never been a better time for product marketers because there are so many different platforms to choose from. While these choices might seem overwhelming, it’s the perfect way to target your user demographic. If your products are geared towards younger demographics, marketers will want to look towards Instagram and Snapchat, products with great demonstrations may look to Facebook and Instagram, and products with a larger story can look to online video giant YouTube.

Influencers

Furthermore, marketers can choose influencers to market their products. These influencers are a much more affordable way to get your products in front of specific markets. For example, if you’re marketing a product to a new mother, you should also utilize Mommy bloggers and influencers for reviews of your products. These influencers will be viewed as much more trustworthy versus traditional advertising.
