DIGITAL MARKETING PLATFORM 1
History and Background
The first key digital marketing platform undertaken by the business is Facebook where with
the help of social media Mossto can share information linked with products to its target market.
The concept of Facebook was introduced in February 2004 by Mr. Zuckerberg at the time of
studying psychology at Harvard University (Brennan & Croft 2013). A large number of features
of this website is present that involves post free classified advertisement, application
development, developing the new page which can be of any organization, etc. The value of
Facebook is $364billlion where on a monthly basis over 1.71 billion people are using this site.
This digital marketing tool has some pros and cons that every business has to consider. The main
benefits of this platform are as follows:
It is very easy to set up the new profile where any individual or organization can develop
the profile, and it is easy to use (Andersson, Fredriksson & Berndt 2014). Only internet
connection is required to access facebook.

Facebook is considered to be one of the most effective platforms where ideas and
thoughts can be easily shared such as in case of Mossto promotional message linked with
products can be shared with the target market
Facebook enhances social skills where the current trends in the market can be known
along with the new products that businesses have launched in the market (Armstrong et
al. 2015).
Saves time and marketing cost where it is possible for the business to share large number
of messages with their target market in lesser period and no expenses are incurred
associated with this type of promotion
One of the main benefits of this platform is that it encourages two-way communication
where feedback from customers can be easily taken in relation to the products and in turn
their satisfaction level can be known easily
It allows in enhancing relationship with the target market and businesses can easily
enhance their customer base in short period of time. The use of Facebook as a marketing
platform can assist the company in its long term growth by developing long term
relationship with all its potential customers.
Cons
Freedom of expression is the major drawback where every individual has freedom to
share ideas, and due to this reason chances of misuse is quite high (Heimbach, Kostyra &
Hinz 2015)
Sometimes any individual can post the negative comment regarding company’s product,
and this can directly harm the brand image of the enterprise.
Many times it has been witnessed that for businesses to engage with the facebook users
who are not interested in the kind of information shared with them. Neither it becomes
possible for the company to force them for accessing the message nor any other tactics
can be undertaken.
The ads that are targeted actually sometime goes wrong where it does not reaches to the
right target market. This is the main issue that is being faced and in turn leads to decline
in the level of performance (Sinha et al. 2015).
So, these are some of the pros and cons of this digital platform that businesses are required to
undertake at the time of employing this platform for promoting products and services. In
