Internet marketing is a broader mix of online marketing components a company can use as a means of increasing sales - even if its business is done completely online, partly online, or completely offline. Essentially, Internet marketing is using the Internet to communicate a company's message about itself, its products, or its services online. It is one of the most economical and far reaching mediums of communication between a company and its clients.
With internet usage increasing rapidly in Sri Lanka, especially with Information and Communications Technology Association (ICTA) and Sri Lankan government’s e-Sri Lanka strategy, Sri Lankans too enjoy a lot of internet marketing potential since the active use of social media such as forum and community portals have become a part of and parcel of the Sri Lankan life style.
