As Today's era when everything is about Technology, Mobiles & Internet, where every user is being tracked by their needs by linking their search history, used apps, purchases, and behavior of the user.

Now as a business owner we also get inclined towards starting a digital marketing for our offline or online business. If you are a coach, trainer, class owner, shop owner, clothing retail shop or for that matter any business! We start investing and chiming on our existing friends, family and surrounding circle to get noticed, acclaimed, appraise and at the end wait for sale to happen! But have you noticed sell never happens from this first circle of friends and family, it only happens from unknown buyers based on quality, uniqueness, and need of that product or service?

Generally, normal business owners outsource their digital marketing to a digital marketing companies & they keep on posting or sharing creative or contents on their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin, Google plus, Tumblr, Pinterest and many more such platforms which are available in the market and has the user base.

Digital marketing is not only showing presence on platforms but making a growth in a business at less expensive compared to offline marketing such as brochures, hoardings, and flyers.

Ultimately after year or 2 years of efforts and monthly average spending 20k, they realize that it's not working at all and they need to spend on advertisements and they set a budget and keep on spending on it, waiting for that sell or lead generation to happen! But actually, these platforms can give you marketing, outreaching but sell cannot happen as Sell platforms are different and they are more of e-commerce platforms such as Flipkart, Amazon, snapdeal and many more or lead generation platforms such as Indiamart, urbanclap, Justdial and many more. Similarly, platforms like Ubereats, Swiggy, Zomatoonline is providing an extension to your existing food/restaurant businesses!
