Before answering this question I would request you to look around you... I am sure 9 out of 10 people standing must be occupied with some electronic devices like mobile, tablets, digital watches, laptops, etc. Now did you see any current generation men or women holding a newspaper in their hand or reading magazines. I guess NO because today if just by 1 click I can get all the information I want on my Smartphone then why will I carry a 20 page newspaper, we don't write letters, we just ping people on Watsaap or any other messenger, we transfer money without going to the bank. In a day we spent 60% to 70% of our time on an electronic device.
Let me share my routine, I wake up in the morning I switch on my TV for news, When I drive office, I check updates on Facebook, tweets on twitter, listen radio, in the office I work on various search engines, check mails, check my LinkedIn profile, likewise in the evening while I come back from office and follow the same routine everyday...
And I think I answered the question.

With changing consumer lifestyle and growing income levels of the families, the number of people shopping online has increased tremendously. In India, approximately 10 million people do online shopping and the frequency of it is increasing with a CAGR of 30%.
So to tap these customers, it has become a major concern for the companies to market its product in e-commerce portals and digital media. Digital marketing helps in engaging the consumers via feedback, posting of comments and helps in building long lasting relationship with consumers.
Traditional marketing is being replaced by digital marketing as it helps in saving costs of the organization to a large extent and helps in building loyal customer base. While printing an ad on 1st page of the newspaper costs about 50 Lakhs, outdoor/billboard ad costs about 20 lakhs, posting an online ad would just cost around 5-6 Lakhs.
It is easy to reach the target audience through various channels via online media. It could be done through :
-Organic ads(SEO)
-Inorganic ads
-Search ads
-Display ads
-Mobile ads
-Social media
-Classified websites

Use of google adwords helps in getting a fair idea about CPC(cost per click), CPI(cost per impression) and CPA(cost per acquisition). It helps in setting an integrated marketing campaign which could then be targeted to our audience. It becomes easier to track the responses of the consumers through google analytics.
Presence in digital media also helps in branding of the organization, which can be done by engaging the consumers in facebook or twitter, which in turn helps in getting huge loyal customer base.

Digital marketing has made such an impression that everyone is preferring it over all other options. Use of computers, laptops, mobile phones are now becoming very prominent and with the increase in the usage of this why not makerting be done digitally then?. What if one remain busy with his schedule and not have enough time to read newspaper, and spend most of his time on internet surfing and he got to know something very interseting during. In the present world, according to forbes survey, "64% employees visits non-work related websites everyday", and according to dnaindia's report "people spend 1 in every 12 minutes of their time surfing the internet". This shows that how important digital marketing is and how easy is to trap visitor to trap with the aid of it. There is an obvious reason why it is easy because, when Flipkart and Amazon offered their customer Diwali off in the year 2014 it was not advertised in the newspaper but was readily available on the internet and other websites, which shows how digital marketing is penetrating more powerfully than direct marketing or traditional marketing.
