Like I can check how many people saw my ad (Impression), how many clicked on it (Clicks), and how many purchased my products or services (Conversion), via that ad which can help me analyze the effectiveness of my Pay Per Click (PPC) campaign and that’s why digital marketing is gaining acceptability in the industry.
