All this noise can make it confusing and even intimidating to learn about and try out new digital marketing tools and tactics. The truth is that once you get past the vocabulary, many of the described items are relatively straightforward.

The terms are also vendors’ efforts to differentiate themselves and the need to describe things that simply had not existed prior. Don’t let it overwhelm you or become an obstacle to trying out new ways to market your business.
