As well as working for International brands, I am a guest presenter speaking at digital events across the UK and a regular contributor to industry leading digital forums including: SmartInsights.com and Econsultancy. I recently completed a Masters in Digital Marketing with Econsultancy and Manchester Metropolitan University.
How to create the right digital strategy to meet your objectives.
Having a digital marketing strategy is essential to ensure it’s assisting to deliver on specific objectives. The rise in the number of different digital channels available to target your customer base continues to grow and without a sound framework in place to manage, monitor and measure organisation performance, not having a digital strategy could prove disastrous.
Is your organisation bought into digital and do you have the right culture in place?
The era of the Industrial Revolution and how many organisations (and their cultures) operate is in turmoil. In its place is the connected economy and the emergence of digital centralising itself within organisations.
Is your brand equipped for a digital future?
Moving companies to embrace the digital age requires a cultural shift within an organisation and what your brand stands for to a digital audience. Where brand loyalty was once a successful ingredient towards brand survival, this has been replaced by an impatient digital audience expecting to be delighted by brands that create remarkable products and services and they frankly don’t care if the brand is well established or not.
