Types of Digital Marketing


Search engine marketing (SEM) refers to marketing activities that aim to help you gain traffic on search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo. It can be organic, that is you manually perform on and off-site optimization on your website. This method is harder as it takes time for the website to climb up to the search engine ranking. If it is successful, you will get a constant stream of traffic with promising ROI for free from the search engine. Another method is to purchase an ad on the search engine. PPC advertising is expensive and it doesn’t guarantee immediate traffic to your website.

You can take a course at a professional training institute in UAE (Dubai, Abu Dhabi) to become skilled in search engine marketing. They will teach you about the latest techniques in organic SEO as well as how to craft and maintain online ad campaign efficiently. At the training seminar, you will also get to meet with other experts and learn tips that can help your website to achieve better growth on the search engine ranking.


This type of marketing also relies on recapping the main points of the product review over and over. A successful landing page can convert at least 2 – 5 customers per 100 visitors. Pixabay

Social media marketing is about marketing effort that is carried out on the social media platform. To establish your brand as an authority, you must share quality content relevant to your niche. In your blog, you should also place the social media button to enable people to share the content conveniently. You can also buy ads on social media to get a lot of traffic quickly.

Influencer marketing allows you to reach out to a large audience via a post on an influencer’s account.

Email marketing is sending emails that are related to your product promotion to your subscriber’s base. There are various types of emails you can send in your campaign including newsletters, confirmation email, discount codes, freebies, notification about an update in your product, and thank you emails. You will have to invest in a subscription to an email marketing automation platform like MailChimp to efficiently schedule your email marketing campaign. With the automation tool, you can customize your email design and monitor the CTR with the analytics on your account.

You can also attract traffic to your website by purchasing banner advertisement spots on other websites. You can directly contact the webmaster of the website that you want to advertise. You can purchase ads on CPM networks like Tribal Fusion, Burst Media, and BuySellAds. You can pay for the ad based on CPM or by per click rate. In your ad network account, you can customize the parameters on when your ad will appear such as keyword and the search habits of the audience.

The pictures and buttons must be put at the right place to entice visitors to take action. This type of marketing also relies on recapping the main points of the product review over and over. A successful landing page can convert at least 2 – 5 customers per 100 visitors. If your landing page is well written, people will not be hesitated to enter their name and email in your subscription form.

Bangladesh over the years show that the state has failed in its duty to protect minorities

By- Salil Gewali

If humanity is hurt, God is hurt.

Religion without compassion might give way to hatred. Compassion with a "self-interest" motive is completely irreligious. But of late, some of the religions have departed from those basic human values. Love and compassion are for only those who follow their "specific" faith. Very sadly, the religions are up as trading commodities in the world of proselytization. Better preachers attract more followers. Of course, no issue if they are not vying for their religious "supremacy". But the ground reality is utterly different. The claim for exclusive supremacy has become the first commandment --- a real bone of contention among the existing religions. In the name of religion, we have polluted our minds. we have corrupted our souls. We have also gone so much astray that God must have now shut his gateway to heaven!

Planning a family vacation is an excellent way through which the whole family can step away from their daily life and have fun. You can find many destinations for a family vacation, but there is no place that can beat Aruba.

Milky Way galaxy as seen from Chitkul Valley

NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has for the first time spotted signs of a planet transiting a star outside of the Milky Way galaxy, opening up a new avenue to search for exoplanets at greater distances than ever before.

The possible exoplanet -- or planets outside of our Solar System -- candidate is located in the spiral galaxy Messier 51 (M51), also called the Whirlpool Galaxy because of its distinctive profile, NASA said in a statement.

Astronomers have, so far, found all other known exoplanets and exoplanet candidates in the Milky Way galaxy, almost all of them less than about 3,000 light-years from Earth.

An exoplanet in M51 would be about 28 million light-years away, meaning it would be thousands of times farther away than those in the Milky Way, NASA said.

"We are trying to open up a whole new arena for finding other worlds by searching for planet candidates at X-ray wavelengths, a strategy that makes it possible to discover them in other galaxies," said Rosanne Di Stefano of the Center for Astrophysics at Harvard and Smithsonian (CfA) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who led the study.

The findings are published in the journal Nature Astronomy.

The exoplanet candidate was spotted in a binary system called M51-ULS-1, located in M51. This binary system contains a black hole or neutron star orbiting a companion star with a mass about 20 times that of the Sun. The X-ray transit they found using Chandra data lasted about three hours, during which the X-ray emission decreased to zero.

Based on this and other information, the team estimates the exoplanet candidate in M51-ULS-1 would be roughly the size of Saturn and orbit the neutron star or black hole at about twice the distance of Saturn from the Sun.

The team looked for X-ray transits in three galaxies beyond the Milky Way galaxy, using both Chandra and the European Space Agency's XMM-Newton. Their search covered 55 systems in M51, 64 systems in Messier 101 (the "Pinwheel" galaxy), and 119 systems in Messier 104 (the "Sombrero" galaxy).

However, more data would be needed to verify the interpretation as an extragalactic exoplanet. One challenge is that the planet candidate's large orbit means it would not cross in front of its binary partner again for about 70 years, thwarting any attempts for a confirming observation for decades, NASA said.

Named in honor of the late Indian-American Nobel laureate, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, the Chandra X-ray Observatory is the world's most powerful X-ray telescope. It has eight times greater resolution and is able to detect sources more than 20-times fainter than any previous X-ray telescope.

Known to the world as Chandra (which means "moon" or "luminous" in Sanskrit), Chandrasekhar was widely regarded as one of the foremost astrophysicists of the twentieth century. (IANS/JB)
