How do you use a marketing campaign?
Platforms are virtual locations where consumers can engage with your company, the foundation on which you can build your brand presence. A few examples are: website, social media page, the Internet, phone apps.
Social media platforms also include blogs, micro-blogs, wikis, social networking sites, photo-sharing sites, instant messaging, video-sharing sites, podcasts, widgets, virtual worlds, and more. Platforms are the foundation on which you can build your brand presence, such as the web, phone apps, social media, and gadgets.
Channels are the direct digital communication mediums that are often associated with a specific platform. They serve as a more direct means of communication and include email, advertising, search engines, chatbots, phone, etc.
A digital channel helps an organization reach potential customers by electronic means. Digital marketing channels are divided into organic and paid channels.
Organic channels (SEO, SMO, email marketing). Organic channels do not require payment for attention. This method grows organically by producing and developing great content. Organic marketing gains visibility and interest from potential customers without paying a third-party platform to be featured. Google ranks your content because it perceives it as high quality, processing your SEO and analyzing your website traffic and data then enabling users to get to you.
Paid channels (SEM, SMM, display advertising).
A paid channel requires a budget to a third-party platform that features your content to users. When the money stops, visibility stops too. You pay a search engine like Google for pay-per-click ads, or Facebook to boost your posts, to feature your content in their listings. As long as you keep paying, you keep appearing in searches.
Direct vs. Indirect
Direct means potential customers reach you without middlemen, such as typing your website address into their browser and getting to your website.
An indirect channel example is someone finding you through a social media post featured by that platform's algorithms. If Facebook, for example, pushes down the reach of that post, no one will find you anymore.
