Hi! My name is Julie Barsamian and I'm a digital marketer here are Blue Fountain Media, and today we are taking questions from around the web from people wanting to know more about what digital marketing is.
Our first question comes from Reddit, and it is "What are different paths or specializations someone can choose in digital marketing?"
Pretty basic answer. You may have heard of SEO or search engine optimization - and that's the practice of optimizing websites for organic search. There's also SEM or paid search, which is the practice of using Google AdWords to optimize search results using paid means in Google or Bing search.
There's also social media - so using tools such as Facebook, Twitter, and LikedIn to promote a brand online either using organic or paid means. There's also email marketing and content marketing, such as blogging, articles, press releases, and the like.
