Paid media is one such medium, that may help us reach to larger volume of audience. I noted my observation this time.

  • Optimisation: The optimisation of the paid media helps to gain a specific goal along with the reach , either to the social engagement or conversion.
  • Tracking: The pixel tracking capabilities is unique for every type of marketing, be it unpaid or paid marketing. The best thing about tracking is that, two or more tracking pixels can be embedded to single paid marketing campaign.
  • Analytics : After every marketing campaign, analytics not only help our paid marketing campaign tracking, but also deliver the efficiency to choose the best performing Paid Marketing to set up our strategy.

So though it is important to implement and nurture the site with organic search, it is equally important  to opt in for the Paid Media Marketing options.
