The two types of marketing namely Traditional and Digital marketing are just two ways one wishes to market their business. It can be put as Before Internet and After Internet.
Traditional marketing is the first form of marketing which businesses have been practicing since ages. It is still a mystery when and how marketing started. Researchers have found that the first marketing strategy ever implemented was naming products to create a brand. Traditional marketing includes advertising, branding, billboards etc. It was very effective type of marketing but as internet hit people’s life, it changed.

Since 2000s, the way brands and businesses use technology for marketing has changed. This is now called as Digital Marketing. As traditional market could reach only local customers, digital marketing allows businesses to have global reach for customers.
