Two other practical limitations can be seen in the case of digital marketing. One,digital marketing is useful for specific categories of products,meaning only consumer goods can be propagated through digital channels.Industrial goods and pharmaceutical products can not be marketed through digital channels.

And hence the reflection of digital marketing into real sales volume is skeptical.[citation needed]

I believe some of the players focused on this space will have an outstanding 2016 — content consumers need them.

I got an Echo for Xmas and of course the first thing I had to do was ask it for my type of business. I was happy to find that once I added my address, we came up as number one (we are only a mile away). At a talk I went recently, the speaker asked, "How do we optimize for this" showing a photo of Alexa. I think it uses Bing but haven't really researched it.

Based on how I've done, you can get a sense of how seriously to take my ideas for the future. But, if you'd prefer, you can just skip right to the 2016 predictions.

All down to you guys! The trick for us is to try and sustain it throughout the summer, keeping our slow season as short as possible!" Ivan L.
"Was reviewing some competitive data and thought this was pretty interesting. I ran a batch analysis on Ahrefs of competitors. See attached screenshot.

Guessing some of this authority is coming from the backlinks program and general good quality of those links. Hard to speculate but nice to see." Ben R.
Companies invest a significant percentage of their marketing budgets trying to improve their ranking in search results. In some cases, they will pay to improve their ranking. In other cases, they will rework the content on their site to get a better ranking. The chart below, based on data from a MarketingSherpa survey, shows how important it is for a company’s website to receive a high ranking. As much as 60% of web traffic goes to the first three sites listed on the results page. Contrast this with the less than 2% of users who click on sponsored ads and the need for a positive ranking becomes clear.
