Marketing is the creation and satisfaction of demand for your product, service, or ideas. If marketing is successful, it will create demand; this demand should translate into sales and, ultimately, revenue. Digital marketing offers an opportunity to tailor marketing campaigns to target specific customers. It also allows for more scope in terms of branding and public relations through content marketing. Digital marketing is a two-way communication between the brand and the customer, providing the business with valuable data that it can use to inform better product and service design.

The affordances of digital go beyond traditional modes of advertising and marketing. As well as information, digital marketing affords community, connection, feedback, and convenience. This makes digital marketing a powerful tool, if used properly.

The role of marketing is to inform, entice, educate, excite, and persuade people to buy services or products. Marketing aims to influence the perceptions of people in favour of the brand and its offering, with the ultimate goal of getting them to make a purchase (and continue to make purchases in the future and to become return customers).
