Intelligent and sophisticated entrepreneur and businessman will ensure the part of the budget for just only marketing. However, it is an era where a large portion of people makes online transactions; another doesn't even know how to use the internet. This makes it highly difficult for the entrepreneur to decide which aspect of brand marketing to concentrate on; digital marketing or traditional marketing.

Marketing is an art that how you can connect with your customers and where you are connecting for example if anyone is struggling in search for ticket to his hometown but unfortunately he/she is not getting any vacant seat in a plane or train, and somehow you ad popped up on any online media, the chances of getting a click is much higher in that scenarios.

I don't think digital marketing will kill or takeover traditional marketing, but traditional marketing won't be used that much in future, but it will be used together for e.g.
Coca-Cola: They have managed successful and combined traditional marketing with digital marketing. Through traditional marketing, they helped customers find their names on the bottles of their favorite drinks.
By including hashtags, they encouraged them to share their pictures (with the targeted product) on social media.
McDonald's: They combined traditional and digital marketing methods also while having a strong online presence on social media, the fast-food chain also uses print ads and billboards to capture the attention of the maximum number of potential consumers. The brand makes sure its messages reach all kinds of customers, irrespective of their preferences.
