En sus inicios, el marketing digital era unidireccional, esto quiere decir que no se distanciaba de los medios offline tradicionales. Sin embargo, en la actualidad es bidireccional, lo que significa que es creador de comunidad, es colaborativo. Con el marketing digital actual ya no existen las figuras del emisor y receptor porque todos podemos ser ambos al mismo tiempo. En el marketing digital, el feedback es el gran protagonista, ya que, gracias a las redes sociales, blogs, entre otros medios de interacción puedes conocer la opinión de tus lectores, usuarios o clientes y mejorar tus productos, servicios o estrategias de marketing. En resumen, el marketing digital es la evolución del marketing tradicional. Hemos pasado de los anuncios en la radio, la televisión o la prensa a los anuncios en Internet. Ahora ya no recibes cartas con publicidad, ahora recibes email marketing. Asimismo, con esta evolución hemos pasado de las presentaciones en vivo a los webinars y a los vídeos en YouTube.
