Which industries benefit most from digital marketing?

Since the advent of digital marketing, businesses of practically every size have been able to take advantage of the many benefits it has to offer.

Covering everything from SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and email marketing to social media marketing and content marketing, digital marketing now plays a pivotal role in many industries.

Below, we explore some of the sectors in the UK that stand to benefit most from investing in digital marketing. Regardless of whether you’ve always stuck to traditional marketing methods or want to discover more about how digital marketing can make your business stand out, we can help.

Which industry needs digital marketing?

While every business, irrespective of its type, can benefit from digital marketing, there are some industries where it is practically essential to their success. To help you identify which industries these are, and whether your business should be investing more in digital marketing activity, below we list some of the key fields that should be seeking out specialist SEO support.

Legal industry

As most law firms are aware, credibility is often one of the most important components of creating a successful legal business. With digital marketing methods such as social media marketing, great content, and running ads, you can regularly highlight your company’s values across a variety of platforms. By consistently marketing your business as respectable and honest, you can develop a trustworthy and reliable reputation throughout your target market.

Education and training industry

Education and training institutions are always on the lookout for ways to connect with their target audience and build new and meaningful relationships. Luckily, digital marketing provides these organisations with a myriad of ways to contact and engage with their target market. Typically, this includes social media marketing, email marketing, and content marketing, for example.

Transport and logistics industry

A highly competitive industry, ensuring your business stands out within the transport and logistics industry is essential to your success. One way to do this is to take advantage of digital marketing tools like SEO and PPC (Pay-Per-Click). PPC campaigns such as GoogleAds can be particularly effective as they can cut the amount of wasted advertisement expenditure and boost your ROI (Return-on-Investment), helping you to divert more money to other areas of the business.

Building and construction industry

Within the building and construction industry, even experts will head online to find the best people, tools, or materials for the job. Creating a reliable and significant online presence is therefore crucial to building a lucrative network of professional connections. A combination of technical SEO work and great content can help your business to appear organically higher in SERPs (Search Engine Result Pages), ensuring a larger proportion of your target audience find and engage with your content.

E-commerce industry

Digital marketing is vital for all e-commerce businesses as they often have no brick-and-mortar premises for customers to visit. Instead, they need to take advantage of all digital marketing tools at their disposal (such as SEO and PPC) to ensure their online domain is visible to their target audience. Once they’ve connected with a customer, they’ll also need to continually utilise digital marketing avenues like email and social media marketing to increase customer retention and improve relations.

Health and fitness industry

In the health and fitness sector, it’s important to establish authority if you want to attract customers and one of the easiest ways to do this is by using your digital marketing resources. A comprehensive content strategy supported by in-depth SEO research is one of the most effective ways to build authority not only in the eyes of your customer, but in the eyes of all-important search engines like Google too.
