The Battle of the Marketing Methods: Traditional vs Digital

Each business strives to grow and develop because even stagnation is a sure sign of failure. In order to achieve its goal, a company needs to constantly work on enlarging its client base, which means it has to use all available promotional tools and channels to reach as many new clients and stay in touch with the existing ones.

That’s why we still see print ads, billboards or flyers distributed all over the world, and TV and radio commercials are still going strong.

It becomes nearly impossible to sell a fully functioning business plan to the potential buyers. Most companies, including startups and SMBs, require money to expand and start new projects. Most of them turn to banks and credit unions for loans. There is nothing wrong with that. The challenge for these businesses lies elsewhere.
