How would you differentiate between digital and affiliate marketing?

Digital marketing is a broad term that refers to many strategies used to sell and promote products on numerous digital platforms. Digital marketing is the umbrella term for all types of online marketing practices. It has several different components including affiliate marketing. Digital marketing is not just about selling a product or service. It employs various tactics (free and paid) across all digital channels (brand website ranking, social media, email, etc.) to grow a brand by solving real customer queries. Affiliate marketing is a specific type of online marketing in which the marketer is only compensated based on a pre-agreed percentage of the revenue from the product/service sold as a result of marketing activities. Affiliate marketing is a special form of advertising service where the more customers you get, the more profit you make.

What are the challenges of the digital marketing business?

Digital marketing is a function that is constantly innovating and showing new trends year after year. Like other companies, it comes with several challenges, some of which include: consumer-driven privacy, which reduces the impact of targeted advertising, fraudulent clicks from bots and bad actors, and a lack of consumer confidence in the conclusion of shopping online.

How were you able to overcome these challenges?

Reaching the right audience at the right time with relevant content is still a major challenge for most brands, as the sheer number of digital tools and tactics out there can make digital campaigns extremely complicated. These challenges can be overcome by being innovative and open to change. Once we try to develop as much as possible, managing our stores will be easy.

From a digital marketing perspective, what can be done to accelerate growth in sectors that are slow to respond?

I think these organizations should embrace the digital way of running business and also employ more young people as internet offers immense potential for growth of African economy and digital marketing will be a key factor in explosive growth of small and medium sized businesses in Africa .

What is the right path for those looking for a digital marketing opportunity?

A good place to start is to take free online courses, get certifications from Google Digital Academy, practice with demo accounts, and then join an agency or brand for hands-on experience.
