Analytics is one major advantage of digital marketing. Think about what you can do in television or radio add and what you can do in social media ads and other digital marketing.
In television you can determine the prime time to air your ad, but you won’t even know for sure if the viewers are watching the advertisements. The impact of these ads can only be seen in the product’s sales.
Whereas in digital marketing you know the live day to day statistics of your marketing strategy and if your strategy have not attracted the customers then you could try changing it for the next day.
The following are the data that you can get from your digital marketing

- If they interacted with it.
- Do they like your business
- Is your business being shared
