Once you have a cast iron brand and a solid online platform it’s time to start telling the world about it. Simply going with the idea of ‘build it and they will come’ will not suffice, especially in today’s hyper-accelerated environment.
Your audience, like everybody else, is bombarded with thousands of marketing messages per day. You need to give your audience a reason to want to look at you and that reason today needs to be compelling.
The right digital marketing strategy should be outlined after a detailed phase of discovery to determine who you want to reach (right down to the smallest detail), where they hang out online and what form of information resonates with them. There are a plethora of digital channels, social media channels, content forms, strategic options when it comes to digital marketing and it’s not a one fits all solution.
