    I never really understood what digital marketing meant but your post broke it down nicely. Judging from the items you said were under the spectrum of digital marketing my favorite has to be blogging and email marketing. Both are great sources of traffic and can also make great money if you know how to use them. The main thing is to always provide value and make shit that people actually want to read. Thats the key!

    Not true. In some instances, when it is over done, sure. Otherwise, my rankings are proof of the contrary.
