the technological innovations that helps a business during this direction is
digital marketing. It is indeed a boon for MSMEs as it lets you reach your
target audience with ease, simplicity, and at very low cost. Cost is always a
concern for most MSMEs.
I don't know Why would anyone not want to use the power of the internet with
over 3 billion users to further the cause of their own business?
But it is a fact that deploying digital marketing for their own benefit seems a
herculean task for many MSMEs as they feel that they are not adept nor attuned
for the digital world, they also tend to think that they're going to not reach
their target market or they simply don't have adequate information, lack
sufficient human resource and tools to manage the digital world. Here my
organization The Digital Hunters help these MSMEs bridge the digital divide by

I tell you the Steps needed to benefit from digital marketing
Build an Online Store
The days of real shopping have now been replaced by virtual shopping. So don’t
be left behind and get a website built for your MSME if you do not have one.
Make sure that the web site is well maintained and displays the newest products
and knowledge as you are doing not want to offer a nasty impression to your
visitors (potential customers) by displaying outdated or irrelevant
information., Also remember to form the web site fully compatible with mobile
display as around 44% consumers say that they use their mobiles as an important
tool to make a decision which product to shop for or not buy.
Customers expect and appreciate consistency from organizations across
platforms. So it is vital for MSMEs to use a consistent tone while dealing with
the customers across various channels whether it is online or mobile and even
personal interaction. A consistent tone creates a favorable impression in the
minds of the customers and increases customer satisfaction
What should be the strategy and recent digital marketing trend during these
COVID hit days?
Mayank Singh Rajput - I think one of the most relevant trends right now
is related to PPC advertising. Google and Facebook are both losing out on ad
revenue as businesses cut their marketing budgets. As a result, the ad-buying
marketplace is less competitive. Facebook ads, for example, have become more
than 15% less expensive.
Conversions are dropping, too, since consumers are adjusting their spending
during our economic downturn. Companies that continue to shop online should
optimize their campaigns for conversions and keep a close eye on ROI. Strong
CTAs and careful targeting are critical.
What should be Post COVID marketing trends how should prepare for?
Mayank Singh Rajput - Businesses have to accept that people will likely
stick with the habit of making purchasing decisions online. Late adopters to
digital marketing should definitely get on board as soon as possible, and
everyone should adjust their digital marketing strategies.
SEO will be more important as businesses duke it out for top positions in
search results. Performance-driven digital marketing platforms like Google Ads
and Facebook Ads Manager will also be especially useful as companies try to
What is the system you follow and how it works for digital marketing?
Mayank Singh Rajput - Digital marketing sees constant change and requires
a forward-thinking mind. You have to be a pioneer, continually championing the
latest industry changes. You also have to have a collaborative spirit and be
willing to work with other departments.
An appreciation for branding is also essential as you will have to build an
online presence that reflects the brand. An analytical mind is helpful as you
will have to look at data and learn how to extract the pertinent information
that will keep your strategy strong. In a nutshell, you have to be tried and
true in your beliefs that digital marketing reigns supreme, keep up to date to
support your opinions, but also work well with others, so people want to help
see your ideas come to fruition.
Digital marketing leadership requires you to influence others and drive results
through collaboration. You must be able to work with colleagues and contacts at
all levels of an organization to develop compelling offers and drive growth
these are the system I follow and suggest to follow all new marketers
How it is different from the conventional strategy?
Singh Rajput - In general terms, a digital marketer is responsible for
using digital channels to generate leads and build brand awareness. Digital
Search engine rankings
Online display ads
Beyond this, as the digital marketer and CEO of The digital hunters, I use
measurable analytics to identify weaknesses and find ways to improve
performance across these channels. In this role, you can be responsible for all
aspects of a company's digital strategy or just focus on one.
Smaller companies tend to have one general specialist or manager as
corporations we spread the responsibilities around to an entire team or even
across several different departments.
Please tell us about your future plans.
Singh Rajput - I am a newcomer. I am hungry and I love my work. If you
are in a digital world, you have to keep on learning and you have to hustle
every day. That is why I am still relevant. I want to provide a digital
platform for local businessmen so that they can expand their business and
promote their local brand all over the country. now I am also working on a
project that gives our youth artists the chance to show their talent and also
promote them to worldwide.
