Blast from the past: 1999 Digital Marketing (the year of my first website and first business)
Picture this: you’re in 1999, and the digital marketing world is a whole different ball game.
The internet is young, and businesses are just starting to understand its potential.
CD-ROMs and dial-up modems dominate the landscape.
Email marketing is in its infancy, with open rates through the roof.
Search engines like AltaVista and Lycos rule the web, and Google is just a new kid on the block. (Google ads were so cheap back then!)
ICQ and AOL Instant Messenger are the go-to social platforms for online communication.
Fast forward to today, and it’s clear how much has changed in digital marketing, and now with ChatGPT, the sky is the limit.
Mobile devices and social media platforms have revolutionized the way we connect with our audience.
AI and machine learning are driving personalization and targeting in ways we never could have imagined.
The lessons from 1999 remind us to stay adaptable, and innovative, and always be ready for the next big thing in digital marketing.
So, let’s keep pushing boundaries and make the future of #digitalmarketing even more exciting than ever before!
Book a time to discuss. I’m always really excited to talk about digital marketing possibilities and strategies, especially now with #ChatGPT
