  1. With massive statistics like these it only makes digital marketing more essential to businesses. Social media plays a vital role in marketing all businesses with sites like Facebook and Twitter drawing significant referral traffic.
    Working in the marketing industry, I’ve seen that different platforms have different impacts. Sites such as Pinterest (http://xcitedigital.com/blog/digital-business-strategy-with-a-pinteresting-twist/) have offered businesses more ways to promote their products/services.
    There really is no limitation to digital marketing whether it be creating inspiring website or getting people talking through social media. The infographic above is brilliant for summarising the impact that the internet has had on brands globally.
