Broadly, Digital marketing can be categorized into the following types:

When anyone writes blogs or creates a video about a product, let it be review or unboxing, and upload on the internet that is categorized as Content Marketing. The content should add value to readers.

3.Email Marketing: 

This may sound like old age but studies have shown that this channel gives the best conversion ratio. Email marketing does not mean sending emails to random people, Marketeers have a list of loyal customers who have used or shown interest in that kind of product in past and have agreed to receive emails for that product.

4. Mobile Marketing: 

Mobile has access to content, videos that are similar to websites but native mobile apps have gained a lot of popularity. An app sitting on your mobile can recommend products that you have searched for.

Note: I have not included SEO (Search Engin Optimization) & PPC (Pay Per Click) because I believe these are techniques of Digital marketing and not categories.
