The Importance of a Digital Marketing Strategy.
A digital marketing strategy could help you set objectives, identify current challenges and opportunities, indicate how to achieve your objectives and show the road to success. Having a strategy in place will increase accountability, reduce risks and most importantly, save you thousands of euros.
According to statistics, businesses with a clear digital marketing strategy see 60% faster growth than those without a marketing plan. If you don’t have a digital marketing strategy, you are in the right place. We can provide you with a list of tactics and actions per digital marketing area to propel the growth of your business.
Why So Many Companies Fail at Strategy.
The main reason for failure is that most of the companies do not have a proper digital marketing strategy in place. What is more, according to a study, the second reason for is that employees in key strategy roles aren’t qualified enough to make strategic decisions. Therefore, they simply try to adopt the digital marketing tactics used by their competitors.
When not having a proper digital marketing strategy, stakeholders just end up executing a list of tasks. Some might bring value to the business while others might not, and hence, waste a lot of money. A proper strategy shows what a company should do and what it should not. Quite often, especially in large companies, conflicts of interest arise between marketing departments, which managers are unable to solve because of the lack of a proper strategy.

Digital Marketing Tactics

To take an example, if your objective is to increase sales, some tactics might be to: invest in PPC remarketing campaigns, reduce bounce rate and improve the conversion funnel. Below there is a list of some common tactics:

Digital Marketing Plan
Once the tactics are determined, we create a separate digital marketing plan per digital marketing area such as SEO, PPC, CRO, Inbound Marketing etc. Given that each marketing plan is channel or area-specific, we will be able to cover how the objectives are going to be achieved in a detailed and organised manner. Every digital marketing plan will contain information such as:
Objectives & Tactics
Specific Marketing Actions
KPI & Target by Action
Prioritisation of Actions
Budgeting & Forecasting
Timeline & Deadlines
Before we start executing any digital marketing strategy, we present it to our client for potential adjustments such as budget re-allocations, re-prioritisation of actions etc. Once the final touches are incorporated, we begin the execution of the strategy and more specifically, the implementation of each digital marketing plan.
During its execution, we will constantly be monitoring the success of the strategy based on the KPI benchmarks (before and after metrics) as well as the KPI targets.

Choose The MOST Qualified Consultant.
There are plenty of businesses outsourcing digital marketing activities to agencies. A great deal of them selects agencies or consultants solely based on the fact that they have clients in the same industry, instead of checking how many years of experience and knowledge they have gained in the digital marketing field. Frankly enough, it takes many years and hard work to learn how the digital marketing ecosystem works, and a few days to understand how to optimally promote a company that operates in a certain industry.
A qualified agency could save thousands or millions of euros on media buying per year while generating more conversions.
