Um caso de sucesso é o da marca Oreo da Nabisco. Esta marca teve uma quebra nas vendas a partir de 2000, devido às preocupações com a obesidade (crianças e adolescentes), no entanto em 2003 implementou medidas para revitalizar o consumo, particularmente um jogo online desenvolvido para as crianças de forma a recuperar a sua popularidade como “top of mind” junto desse target. O jogo online, com uma média de 7 minutos de jogo por utilizador foi um sucesso e a marca recuperou da quebra nas vendas, regressando ao volume de vendas habitual no fim desse ano.
Targeting, viewability, brand safety and invalid traffic: Targeting, viewability, brand safety and invalid traffic all are aspects used by marketers to help advocate digital advertising. Cookies are a form of digital advertising, which are tracking tools within desktop devices; causing difficulty, with shortcomings including deletion by web browsers, the inability to sort between multiple users of a device, inaccurate estimates for unique visitors, overstating reach, understanding frequency, problems with ad servers, which cannot distinguish between when cookies have been deleted and when consumers have not previously been exposed to an ad. Due to the inaccuracies influenced by cookies, demographics in the target market are low and vary (Whiteside, 2016).[42] Another element, which is affected within digital marketing, is ‘viewabilty’ or whether the ad was actually seen by the consumer. Many ads are not seen by a consumer and may never reach the right demographic segment. Brand safety is another issue of whether or not the ad was produced in the context of being unethical or having offensive content. Recognizing fraud when an ad is exposed is another challenge marketers face. This relates to invalid traffic as premium sites are more effective at detecting fraudulent traffic, although non-premium sites are more so the problem (Whiteside, 2016).[42]
"I was looking over the link reports for (our site) recently. I just wanted to tell you and your team that I was especially impressed with the quality of links acquired over the last few months. I mean, they're completely stellar. So many of them have been older domains receiving plenty of edu and gov backlinks. I am very impressed! Ninjas, indeed! So I wanted to pass that on because I feel everyone deserves to know when they are appreciated. And I totally appreciate you guys. :))) Whenever someone who actually has an internet marketing budget asks me about SEO services, I always rave to them about my experience with the Ninjas ( long as they're not in any of the same verticals as I am!) Thanks again for all the time and effort." Dan C.

As digital marketing continues to grow and develop, brands take great advantage of using technology and the Internet as a successful way to communicate with its clients and allows them to increase the reach of who they can interact with and how they go about doing so,.[2] There are however disadvantages that are not commonly looked into due to how much a business relies on it. It is important for marketers to take into consideration both advantages and disadvantages of digital marketing when considering their marketing strategy and business goals.

Video advertising - This type of advertising in terms of digital/online means are advertisements that play on online videos e.g. YouTube videos. This type of marketing has seen an increase in popularity over time.[50] Online Video Advertising usually consists of three types: Pre-Roll advertisements which play before the video is watched, Mid-Roll advertisements which play during the video, or Post-Roll advertisements which play after the video is watched.[51] Post-roll advertisements were shown to have better brand recognition in relation to the other types, where-as "ad-context congruity/incongruity plays an important role in reinforcing ad memorability".[50] Due to selective attention from viewers, there is the likelihood that the message may not be received.[52] The main advantage of video advertising is that it disrupts the viewing experience of the video and therefore there is a difficulty in attempting to avoid them. How a consumer interacts with online video advertising can come down to three stages: Pre attention, attention, and behavioural decision.[53] These online advertisements give the brand/business options and choices. These consist of length, position, adjacent video content which all directly affect the effectiveness of the produced advertisement time,[50] therefore manipulating these variables will yield different results. Length of the advertisement has shown to affect memorability where-as longer duration resulted in increased brand recognition.[50] This type of advertising, due to its nature of interruption of the viewer, it is likely that the consumer may feel as if their experience is being interrupted or invaded, creating negative perception of the brand.[50] These advertisements are also available to be shared by the viewers, adding to the attractiveness of this platform. Sharing these videos can be equated to the online version of word by mouth marketing, extending number of people reached.[54] Sharing videos creates six different outcomes: these being "pleasure, affection, inclusion, escape, relaxation, and control".[50] As well, videos that have entertainment value are more likely to be shared, yet pleasure is the strongest motivator to pass videos on. Creating a ‘viral’ trend from mass amount of a brands advertisement can maximize the outcome of an online video advert whether it be positive or a negative outcome.

Two other practical limitations can be seen in the case of digital marketing. One,digital marketing is useful for specific categories of products,meaning only consumer goods can be propagated through digital channels.Industrial goods and pharmaceutical products can not be marketed through digital channels. Secondly, digital marketing disseminates only the information to the prospects most of whom do not have the purchasing authority/power. And hence the reflection of digital marketing into real sales volume is skeptical.[citation needed]

Segunda geração da Web onde o conceito é a Web como plataforma, para uma comunidade e serviços na internet, com realce na colaboração e na partilha de informação. Há mais de 10 anos quando surgiu o e-marketing, os sites eram um género de cartão de visita sofisticado, que algumas empresas “mais na moda”, utilizavam para se apresentar a potenciais clientes na internet. A tecnologia tem permitido a evolução deste conceito até converter os sites iniciais em verdadeiras ferramentas de e-branding: a venda pela internet não é obrigatória; ou até mesmo aconselhável em certas ocasiões, algumas vezes a verdadeira chave para o sucesso é ser capaz de induzir o visitante a comprar através de um diferente canal. Para ajudar a atingir esse objectivo, nada melhor do que, permitir aos utilizadores que conheçam o negócio através de sites interactivos e social media que lhes possibilitem ter um papel activo no desenvolvimento de conteúdos. Existem muitos exemplos, o melhor é olhar para os rankings dos melhores sites do ano por sector para perceber o que melhor se faz nesta área.
