A disadvantage of digital advertising is the large amount of competing goods and services that are also using the same digital marketing strategies. For example, when someone searches for a specific product from a specific company online, if a similar company uses targeted advertising online then they can appear on the customer's home page, allowing the customer to look at alternative options for a cheaper price or better quality of the same product or a quicker way of finding what they want online.
As mentioned earlier, technology and the internet allows for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week service for customers as well as enabling them to shop online at any hour of that day or night, not just when the shops are over and across the whole world. This is a huge advantage for retailers to use it and direct customers from the store to its online store. It has also opened up an opportunity for companies to only be online based rather than having an outlet or store due to the popularity and capabilities of digital marketing.
Os e-auctions, normalmente, são leilões directos, em que alguém oferece produtos ou serviços a utilizadores que licitam de forma ascendente (versão inglesa) ou descendente (versão alemã). No entanto os leilões que mais interessam para as empresas, não são os directos, são os leilões invertidos. Num “reverse e-auction” leilão invertido as empresas adquirem produtos ou serviços num concurso público fechado (quantidade e especificações) em que teoricamente vence a melhor oferta, não apenas no preço mas também com as melhores condições comerciais (nem sempre a oferta de preço mais baixo ganha os contratos). Um exemplo de sucesso da utilização de e-auctions é o da British Airways, que em 2005 poupou 300 milhões de libras pela utilização de e-auctions, no entanto, a vantagem de usar os e-auction não reside apenas nos custos, pois, também permite determinar a estrutura de preços da concorrência, através da análise das suas licitações.

"One client was very happy with his rankings so he sent the entire team to Atlantic City, all expenses paid. Then he said, 'I loved hearing that you all enjoyed the trip. It's great giving back the joy that I get from seeing us going up in rank. I am hoping to present more such rewards for the remarkable job you are continuing to do, and for Jim's brilliant leadership.'" Rafael D.
O formato CPM é apenas utilizado em banners de publicidade, e é um valor pago pela empresa/anunciante para cada 1000 impressões que esse banner realiza na sua página. Para não o confundir facilmente, o número de impressões do banner pode ser facilmente calculado pelo número de pageviews do seu blog. Sempre que um usuário acessa o seu blog, ele gera 1 (um) pageview e, consequentemente, 1 (uma) impressão do banner publicitário (partindo do princípio de que o banner se encontra visível em todas as páginas. Ex.: barra lateral).
Using Dr Dave Chaffey's approach, the digital marketing planning (DMP) has three main stages: Opportunity, Strategy and Action. He suggests that any business looking to implement a successful digital marketing strategy must structure their plan by looking at opportunity, strategy and action. This generic strategic approach often has phases of situation review, goal setting, strategy formulation, resource allocation and monitoring.
"If I haven't told you already, your team of people are the Bomb! When I came to you I told you I was very reluctant about hiring a Search Engine Optimization firm because I was ripped off and sold a bunch of promises in the past-all of which failed. I honestly was still a skeptic until recently. We have gone from off the map for my two major keywords to the top twenty in 5 months so far. I have all the confidence that you can get me in the top ten! A special thanks goes to your optimization expert who has handled my demands for constant changes with such professionalism. I would highly recommend you to anyone who wants to be in the top of their field on the web. (Except any of my competitors !!!)" Randy W.
"I am so grateful the Ninjas are a part of our team. We tried figuring out the SEO and link strategy on our own for several years and ended up getting penalized by Google for it. When we stated with the Ninjas, we were literally ranking for 0 keywords. It was awful. We've been with them for a year now and they have helped us rank for over 200 keywords, build trust for our website, and even get government and educational websites to link to us. When I get on the phone with them, they always have a game plan to get to the next level." Gene
"You and the team at Internet Marketing Ninjas have been great, demonstrating the quality of your work through useful recommendations, reports and top-notch content that has won us some great links. Thank you. In turn, I trust that we have been good clients over the past few months offering no hassles, no payment issues, quick implementation of content and good communication throughout our engagements. We plan on continuing to work with you for quite sometime." Sara C.
