Modern media is no longer confined to a television or radio show, newspaper or advertisement. Instead, today’s media — from text to video and sound — can be saved and shared electronically, using everything from desktop computers to small mobile devices. This electronic dissemination of media has had a powerful impact on the way people communicate for personal reasons, school, and even business. Today we are going to talk about the positive impact of digital media on businesses.
Thanks to digital media, companies can get their information out to the public faster than ever. Instead of printing inserts and waiting for the Sunday paper to announce their sales, companies now can let the world know about an exciting promotion through email, social networking, their websites and Internet ads.
Digital media means businesses can reach more customers than ever before. A simple promotion featuring a giveaway or a freebie can earn business hundreds or thousands of Facebook fans and email and text message subscribers, meaning that the business can send a message to these consumers with just a touch of a button.
Using digital media means using new technology both to create and support the media. New technology can be an asset for your business. When you adopt smartphones and laptops in order to use digital media, you also can positively influence other areas of your business. For example, such mobile technology makes communication among employees much easier.
Thanks to digital media, businesses now have many more options that they can choose from when seeking to get a word out about their businesses. Instead of choosing among a TV or radio commercial or a print advertisement, they can now create media that is a combination of audio, visual, text and interactive media. This mixed media can appeal to a larger audience with differentiated preferences.
