What is Digital Marketing?digital-marketing-the-hustler-collective

Explaining in the Hustler Style, Digital Marketing is exactly like traditional marketing that we have known for years. It is an evolved form of the old school marketing yet both of them have common basis, here are some examples of the same. Word Of Mouth marketing is like Influencer marketing, Ad campaign is like GDN, Pamphlets and flyers are replaced by online creatives on social media etc. However, the only difference is that the traditional marketing was done offline however when we say digital we mean nothing more than online marketing.

INFLUENCER MARKETINGinfluencer-marketing-the-hustler-collective 

Influencer marketing is a type of digital marketing form in which the anchor is placed on an influential person who has a fan following base. The aim is to spot-out these Influencers which have a say over a genre or section of the market and revolve marketing activities around them such as the promotion of a particular product.

Influencers create content which is framed as an indirect advertisement where they play the role of a potential buyer themselves, or they may be third parties in order to build a trust. This may also be done by journalists and bloggers/vloggers in a way to review a product. All those videos on YouTube, maximum of them are paid promotions however we still watch them to know the reviews. This is the power of Influencer market, you follow a person, not a product. The Hustler’s see this trend growing and booming in 2018.

Reputation management has been a major means to influence and control an individual’s or a brand’s reputation. Initially, a PR industry based practice, the growth of the digital platforms and social media, along with a deep understanding of the concept by the Digital Marketing Companies, has made online search results, a core part of an individual’s or a brand’s reputation.

Online reputation management, sometimes connoted as ORM, focuses on the management of products, services and brand perception on the online search website results.

It is done by creating an enormous amount of positive content, infographics and strategies to rank positive content at the top of the search results. It is a 360-degree solution for brand imaging and building.

Vlogging is an efficient and effective strategy for brands and individuals. This strategy is well- adopted by the generation in the recent years. The motive is to generate the maximum amount of traffic to the websites. Be it a new vlogger or an old vlog star, beauty and health Influencer, or a skilled expert with cutting-edge experience and knowledge in the field of social media marketing – everyone is trying their hand at promoting some business, or promoting themselves through this medium.

For many well-known vloggers, it is their primary source of earning. It is even an effective option for brands to go for this sort of marketing which reaches a large audience in a single shot.


DISPLAY ADVERTISINGdisplay-advertising-the-hustler-collective

A display ad also known as a banner is a paid form of advertising wherein a creative ad is displayed when the user visits a website of their interest. Viewers can then click on the ad and they will reach the landing page of the website or brand asset promoted on the display network.

Display ads are not found in the search results rather just appear on the website or link you search for. They can be spotted on websites and can feature interactive displays or some type of animations which will be engaging for the viewer and will increase the click-through rate.

These advertisements are not only displayed by Google Display Network but various other mediums, amongst which is Facebook advertisements.

According to Hustler’s, this is the best way to generate a good traffic to the website and generate leads as well.



The digital marketing arena is growing by leaps and bounds. The possibility of constructing something unique out of this is immense. It is finally the time for the brands to come out of the price competition and level-up their game by using the above strategies and redefining marketing. The Hustler Collective, one of the most innovative Internet Marketing Company, foresees this industry as an opportunity to create a deep connection of a brand with its client base and a better Brand Image. With innovation in its strategies, a company/brand/person can grow exponentially with Digital marketing.
