The digital explosion is massively disrupting every industry, and any senior executive who does not understand it, does not respect it as the juggernaut agent of change that it is, and does not have a competitive strategy to harness its power, is going to have a very rough ride. Get digital strategy right, and the rewards are immense; get it wrong, and you could do irreparable damage to the loyalty of your customers, and the future of your business.
This workshop explores how the digital landscape is evolving, and explains what shifts in customer communication and decision-making processes mean for your businesses and its marketing.
You’ll learn an eight step methodology for cutting through the chaos of the digital revolution and building clearly focused, measurable strategies for success. You’ll apply a structured approach to identifying affordable innovative opportunities. You’ll learn how to integrate all of the different elements of digital marketing into a balanced, prioritized and achievable road-map. And you’ll discover how best to structure your organization to exploit the changes that are coming.
You will totally “get” the social-local-mobile customer, and the expanding digital marketplace. You’ll leave equipped with a set of strategic methodologies and best practices, inspiring examples, and guidelines for staying ahead of the curve.
And you’ll take away a brilliant workbook to guide you through development of your own corporate or brand strategies!
