Types of Digital Marketing

SEO or ‘Search Engine Optimization

SMO or ‘Social Media Optimization’
Also known as ‘social media marketing’, SMO is a relatively new trend in which digital marketing managers market your social media accounts. Social media optimization (SMO) is the process of increasing the awareness of a product, brand or event by using several social media outlets and communities to generate viral publicity.
