Digital Marketing Strategic Planning
Integrating your communication is vital for your brands success. Your aim is to create a consistent tone and voice across all channels.
If you think we’re still in the information age, then you might be slightly behind. The knowledge age has given consumers power. Your brand must take advantage of this power diligently. This immense knowledge came about from the accumulation of vast information online since the dot.com bubble happened back at the turn of the millennium. A new age was then ushered in.
Digital marketing (also referred to as internet marketing or online marketing) has become the epitome of communication in the 21st century. Consumers are now highly connected through various devices including smartphones and tablets. This connectedness gives consumers access to information any time they want it to solve their problems. Brands must be there to meet these information needs with relevant content. It is no longer prudent to assume that brands are the gatekeepers of information.
