I got the opportunity to work with the marketing and sales team of the organisation. Title of the Internship Report is “A Study of digital marketing and social media marketing channel” and Objectives of the Internship are to understand the requirement of clients, formulating strategies for clients, executing those strategies to achieve their brand marketing targets Finding the increasing importance in the field of the digital marketing is one of the objective of the project. Social media tools and the strategies are also studied in the project Main findings of this internship are given here. Indian customers are highly information seekers. They collect more information about a product before buying it. Internet penetration in India is key player for this phenomenon. Most of Indians are getting stimulus through advertisements, but they are not reaching to end phase of customers purchase journey, mainly in high involvement purchases. Brands are getting more touch point to reach their target group in this digital era. More details about findings are given this report. The successful completion of this internship indicates that the future of marketing is in the hands of digital. I conclude my research by quoting again that “Brands can’t sustain without digital presence”
  • 9. 9 Introduction Digital marketing is an umbrella term for the marketing of products or services using digital technologies, mainly on the Internet, but also including mobile phones, display advertising, and any other digital medium. The way in which digital marketing has developed since the 1990s and 2000s has changed the way brands and businesses utilize technology and digital marketing for their marketing.] Digital marketing campaigns are becoming more prevalent, as digital platforms are increasingly incorporated into marketing plans, and as people use digital devices instead of going to physical shops. Digital marketing activities are search engine optimization (SEO), search engine marketing (SEM), content marketing, influencer marketing, content automation, campaign marketing, and e-commerce marketing, social media marketing, social media optimization, e- mail direct marketing, display advertising, e–books, optical disks and games, and any other form of digital media. Digital Media Marketing or Digital Marketing The term 'digital marketing' was first used in the 1990s. In the 2000s and the 2010s, digital marketing became more sophisticated as an effective way to create a relationship with the consumer that has depth and relevance. Digital marketing was defined in Wikipedia as “marketing that makes use of electronic devices (computers) such as personal computers, smart phones, cell phones, tablets and game consoles to engage with customers. Digital marketing applies technologies or platforms such as websites, e-mail, apps (classic and mobile) and social networks”. Peoples often referred digital marketing as 'online marketing' or 'internet marketing' but it’s wrong. Digital marketing revolves around the Internet, which explains why people tend to believe that digital marketing and Internet marketing are synonymous. Nonetheless, they are different. Internet marketing falls under the category of digital marketing. Internet marketing encompasses digital marketing services such as search engine optimization, display advertising, and email marketing.

Behavioural targeting is also a part of advanced targeting, here marketer can target the customer based on their past behaviour in online. Marketer can put ads in other webpage where customer is going. Creative Creative is the artistic component of an ad or website. It usually includes an image and copy present in ads or website.

Strategy may be short term or long term, but it need to be fit with market situations. Types of DigitalMarketing In normal outbound marketing, we will use pull and push marketing strategy. Like that in digital marketing also pull and push are types. In push digital marketing the marketer sends a message without the recipient actively seeking the content, such as display advertising on websites and news blogs. Email, text messaging and web feeds with customized contents can also be classed as push digital marketing when the recipient has not actively sought the marketing message. Push marketing allows you to target your demographics and use your marketing dollars to promote your product to the people you know are interested in what you have to sell. A push marketing campaign can be more expensive when it comes to upfront costs, so you really need to be sure that your marketing is going to reach the right people at the right time. Behaviour targeting is good example for push digital marketing. In Pull digital marketing includes blogging, email marketing, social media, info graphics and other forms of visual messaging and search engine optimization (SEO). A pull marketing campaign also includes public relations or other ways of reaching out to potential or already realized customers who you want to keep engaged. While a pull marketing campaign can be less expensive to get started, you will incur costs in other ways. For example, if you are
  • 16. 16 running a social media campaign, you will need to hire someone to manage your social media and respond to people who leave comments or ask questions. Social media gets people talking and that has a major impact on sales. Pull marketing also requires a greater investment in time, but it gives you more ability to entertain your customers and educate them about your company. But don't get confused by seeing Email in push and pull, there is a difference. If marketer is sending emails with customized content or banners to specific group of customers is push digital marketing. If marketer is sending emails with the same content or banner to all customers is pull digital marketing. AIDMA as AISAS in Digital Era AIDMA widely accepted model describing the psychological process leading up to the consumer’s decision to purchase a product. This model is similar to AIDA model. The AIDMA Model was first advocated by Roland Hall, an American economist, around 1920. According to this model, there are five key processes: Attention, in which the consumer first notices the product or advertisement, followed by Interest, Desire, Memory, and Action. This model has been used extensively in the advertising and marketing industries. AISAS is a process model of consumers purchasing activities in the Internet age. AISAS is a consumption behaviour model that has been advocated by Dentsu since 2004. It was developed to observe behaviours based on the understanding that the Internet has become prevalent, and that consumers now have access to environments in which they can obtain and transmit information themselves. In this model, the key processes are: Attention, in which the consumer first notices the product or advertisement, followed by Interest. After this, the consumer Searches for information, and then makes a purchase (Action), after which information is shared with others. In comparison to “AIDMA,” the psychological process has become more compact, and the Action process has expanded. Attraction Interest Desire Memory Action

But it will not lead to action in current scenario. Customers need more information in present era; they are information seeker and always search for best deal. Brands can’t sustain without digital media. Advantages of Digital Marketing Digital Advertising is increasingly an inherent budgetary component of many organizations today. Organizations of all sizes use the medium to promote their products and services. So well, why do so many organizations use the medium? Simply put, it is due to the numerous advantages that online advertising offers. These are discussed in the paragraphs ahead. Reach - The ability of the online medium to target a certain demographic of users is one of the greatest advantages of digital advertising. In addition, the geographical reach of the online medium is far greater than that of traditional media. It’s not only cost effective to achieve a wider geographic area but the ads can also be targeted to the desired audience. For example, if an advertiser is keen on selling his or her products targeted to a certain demographic of people, it is quite possible through online advertising. Digital advertising has matured to the extent that web publishers, media agencies and advertisers themselves know the optimal ways and websites for a certain category of products or services. Measurement - With various tools becoming available, tracking effectiveness of ad campaigns is becoming possible today. In other words, measuring Return of Investment (ROI) is increasingly possible today. Organizations that were previously reluctant to spend online, now realize that the online medium does offer means to alleviate any such fears. Moreover, when properly designed online marketing campaigns generate the desired results, advertisers are further encouraged to continue advertising online. Interactive and Engagement - The Internet is arguably the most interactive and engaging medium among various others. Interactive campaigns have become a norm with the power of the online medium. One such advertisement worth mentioning is the campaign by AXE where the end user could alter the smile of a woman as he/she liked to i.e. in an interactive framework. The advertisement struck an instant chord with the youth to which AXE the brand is positioned for Customers are basically just a click away from the advertisers. In other words, direct response between end users and advertisers is possible through the online medium. Time - Through the Internet, an advertiser can reach a desired target group or demographic in a much shorter time frame. For example, if an advertiser needs to plan some sort of ambush Attraction Interest Search Action Share

Even otherwise i.e. for regular marketing campaigns, the total time necessary to complete an online advertising campaign is less than that of traditional advertising methods. Cost - When compared to traditional forms of advertising, digital advertising is cheaper. Various payment models are available between the advertisers and publishers. Many a time, advertisers are charged only when visitors click on their ads. The various payment models are discussed in detail in the next section.

  • 21. 21 Branding in DigitalEra Before doing this internship, I believed marketer is responsible for building a brand or marketer is a custodian for a brand. But while doing internship, I understood marketer is not a custodian, he is a person who guides a product to become a brand. Today, brand custodians are the connected users who exist across digital platforms. They are multifaceted. They are the publishers, circulators, ambassadors, instigators and at the same time they are the custodians as well. Their digitally connected existence has power, credibility, influence, depth, and reach.[26] Their digital messaging has the velocity, acceleration, and momentum required to impact brands. Yet brands and their default custodians continue to live blissfully in an illusion about the control they exercise over their brand. Brand is an enabler in the current age. It is the participants, the brand conversations and the platforms that amplify the brand and drive the brand philosophy. Businesses need to, therefore, understand the consumers and the evolving digital sphere better and continue to build brands within the digitally connected ecosystem by focusing on the following 3 elements People The digital age has democratized individuals. They are no longer passive consumers, but active and creative participants. They expect and believe in the co-creation of an experience, thereby evolving from consumers to users. They are becoming the most credible and reliable source of the true picture of a brand. Consumers are beginning to seek a relationship of fair exchange between themselves and the businesses where each contributes and everyone gains. Individuals are seeking a multidimensional relationship that provides them with more than just the brand product/service. The fair exchange relationship is also offering new opportunities to the business to build more human connections. Businesses will have to become receptive to this new age definition People EngagementsChannles
  • 22. 22 of relationship that consumers seek. They may do well to go a step ahead and create an environment that is receptive to this fair relationship. Channels With consumers evolving into users and participating in co-creation, it is important for brands to offer those channels and platforms that allow them to participate in this process. Users are seeking channels that offer them more than just digital promotional activities; they want channels that allow them the freedom to be publishers of content, information and data, that give them control over what content they produce and consume, that allow them to co-create brand experience. The channels also need to be device agnostic. Users are adapting to the usage of different devices throughout the day to execute tasks at hand. They might use a Smartphone or tablet to complete functional tasks etc. while on the move, but they use a PC for heavy content creation and research. According to a Google research, 90 percent of people move between devices to accomplish a task, with virtually all of them completing their task in one day. The most popular starting point is the Smartphone. In most cases, the tasks are continued on a PC though tablets are also becoming a popular option for continuing social networking and watching videos. Businesses and brands need to accept that it is the consumer who has become a more credible publisher by virtue of their access to a device which is always on and active. Creating an environment of device agnostic platforms and channels that allow co-creation of content between brands and consumers will address this shift. Engagement It is about creating a window with enhanced attention to influence behaviour and motivations. With every business eyeing the opportunity to engage users, it is critical to focus on engagement by increasing brand salience and influencing buyer behaviour and choice. Brands should be able to map a customer’s journey to understand where they can add value and create an opportunity to engage them. Brands need to understand that engagement is not about pushing product messages; it is about capturing the imagination and the attention of the user. It is about designing a naturally engaging experience. Businesses need to understand that digital environment is not about technology but about attention, where the consumer is at the core, armed with powers like never before. Businesses and brands should, therefore, focus on connecting the dots and realize that now, in the digital age, it is all about co-owning a brand.

  • 33. 33 Porter’s Five ModelAnalysis of DigitalAdvertising Industry Porter’s model will help analysis the industry and understand where the power lies in the business. Here I am using porter’s model to understand digital advertising industry in India. Generally, in the Indian advertising industry, contracts are long termed, and customers are likely to keep going back to the same advertiser so long as results were obtained the first time. 1) Threats of New Entry  Full service agencies have high demand in Market.  Lack of getting efficient work force is a threat in digital advertising.  Cost of setting up a digital agency is low. But agencies need to invest a huge amount in backend function like technology.  Getting clients in the initial stage is a bit difficult, because clients will usually look the past experience of agency.  Government regulations in the digital advertising are low. While comparing with M&E industry. 2) Bargaining power of suppliers  Lot of suppliers are there, but some suppliers who have high reach and affinity will charge high price for placing ads in their portals.  Real time bidding will lead to increase the demand of some portals.  Bargaining power of suppliers, who provide data and information are very high.  Seasonal campaigns put pressure on supply side to charge high.  Employee or work force with proper knowledge is limited. 3) Bargaining power of buyers  Buyer are the clients of agencies, basically buyers are high idea seekers.  Clients will choose agencies which have good experience in industry.  Clients like long term relationships with agencies, so they also try to adjust with agencies.  Clients can ask agencies to change pattern of campaigns at any time.  Clients like MNC’s have high power over agencies, but SME’s will satisfy with performance of agencies.  Backward integration by buyers is not possible. 4) Threats of substitutes  No. of substitutes is high, substitutes include Print media, TV, OOH and Radio.  Substitutes are too popular among buyers. They had high demand in past years.  Main competitor for Digital advertising is TVC, but trends are now changing FICCI-KPMG report of 2014 showing growth of digital is very high while comparing with others media.  But media consumption through radio is increasing now.

Because lot new players are coming to the industry.  Existing competitors have high profile clients and clients loyal toward them.  Most of the traditional agencies are now concentrating in digital also.  Existing firms in the Industry are creating variety and unique campaign for clients.  Most of the firms have efficient backend support in technology.  Existing firms have the expertise manpower and firms giving good remunerations to employees. So employees are loyal towards employers.  Some firms are popular due to execution of innovative campaigns.  Few of the brands have in-house agencies, it will reduce business but not in a high level. Conclusion of Porter’s Five Force Analysis  Low threats for new entry.  High bargaining power of suppliers.  Bargaining power of buyer is medium, but in coming year there is chance for increase. Due to lot of players are coming to industry.  Threats of the substitutes are high, but it will change in coming years.  Rivalry by existing competitors is high, but possible to break it by doing some unique campaign for client.  Indian market is a potential market for digital advertising due to high internet and mobile penetration.

  • 50. 50 Chapter 6: Findings and Learning’s
  • 51. 51 Findings  Social media is opportunity for marketer and one opportunity is emerging for them to reach their T.G.  Digital media marketing is the future of marketing  Social media marketing is the undisputed part of the digital marketing  Each year number of people are increasing on social media  Companies like facebook, Google and Inmobi are ruling the digital advertising market  To find major competitors  More than 90% of the samples have a mobile or Smartphone and laptops or PC. 96% of samples have an internet connection is any of these gadgets, this showing the penetration of internet in India.  In this situation, one opportunity is again losing to brands and one opportunity is emerging for brands to reach their T.G.  From the first part of this research itself, we know that customers are highly information seeker. It may be the reason for high trust in online ads. They can search for more information after seeing an ad or online is the only two way communication channel for customers.  But now Indian customers want to get conviction about a product before going to retail shop. So from a marketers view they want to convince their customers before going to a retail shop.  Brands want to build a cool presence over digital platforms because the customer will do research about the product after seeing an ad or after getting stimulated.  Brands are getting more touch points to reach target group in a cost effective manner.  Email campaigning is one of the best digital marketing tool to promote Services/Product
  • 52. 52 Learning 1. Technical Learning  Learnt the digital marketing concept  learnt about social media and its role in digital marketing  Learnt about Market survey  Learnt how to make social digital marketing campaign  Learnt how to make social media marketing task  Learnt about SEO  Email Campaign 2. Management Learning  Strategy is not a rock science Before my internship, creating new campaign or making new strategy for any marketing activity seems very difficult for me. In my internship I got a chance to make new strategies for companies brand awareness through the social media. Now I got confidence about the making new strategies  Every day same task, but the situations are different It’s not only from my experience, but also from my observation. All colleagues are doing the same type of work, but the situation is different. Sometime they have problem with a client, but on the next day they problems with vendors or with creative team. While coming to me, my first month was more concentrated with pitch presentation. Industry or clients are different or requirements of the client are different, but contents or the flow of pitch presentations are same.  Observation is the best teacher There are lots of situations where I am completely blank and I don’t know how to do some task. In those situations I observed my colleagues to know how they are doing it and I understood the importance of observation.  Go and ask for work In beginning stage of my SIP, I don’t have any work to do or they are not giving. First week full of induction and in second week, first two days I sat idly. I felt that they will not give any work and my internship is gone. But in next day I went and ask for work. From that moment to last day, I enjoyed my internship and learned a lot of stuffs.
  • 53. 53  Work life balancing This is the most important learning for me. This SIP thought me how to balance your personal responsibility and professional responsibility together and how to enjoy life even after getting a job. Working in Software Firm is not an easy task; the person wants to face a lot of stress and challenges. I am the only person in my office leaving early, while comparing with others. Because my colleagues have lots of work, sometime they will leave by late night only. But they are really enjoying all the moments in their life. They don’t have any difference between professional life and personal life.
  • 55. 55 The successful completion of this internship indicates that the future of marketing is in the hands of digital. Digital marketing is not only concerned with placing ads in portals, it consists of integrated services and integrated channels. Marketers want to use these components in an effective way to reach target groups and to build a brand. In this digital era marketer is not the custodian for a brand, people who are connected across the digital platforms are the custodians. Brands want to build their presence over digital platform, because customers have high affinity towards digital media than other media’s. More than that customers are highly information seekers and digital media is the only platform for two way communication between brands and customers. Digital media is the best platform to convert a product to a brand. Because it is more cost effective and it provide lot of touch points to marketer. Brands can able to engage their target group in an effective way through digital platforms. Digital media is not only for engagement, brands can increase their customers or they can retain their existing customers. Digital platforms help to increase the impact of brand recall in target groups. I honestly believe that this project report will be at most useful for marketers to understand the digital marketing and also to plan for future strategies. I conclude my research by quoting again that “Brands can’t sustain without digital presence”.
