What is digital?
Nowadays, most businesses use a digital strategy. Why? Because it works! Not only does it save you time, energy and money but it is more effective by measuring the results you need.
It takes so much time to do develop your business offline but if you include more of an online presence, you are sure to get better results.
In short, digital is about finding the best way of achieving goals, normally promoting a brand or service, through electronic connected media. This could be online on the web, through specialist Internet applications, or through mobile phone applications (both network and Bluetooth connections). Digital consultancy can also tie into traditional media outlets, either as traditional first (bringing an audience into a digital campaign), or traditional last (by using an existing digital audience as content generators).
Definition by difference:
Digital offers brands new opportunities that traditional methods cannot easily match:
Digital does not obey the line
Digital should be cost efficient
Digital can be broadcast and personalized
Digital should always prove returns
Digital can be reactive as well as proactive
Building a digital strategy
Identifying your audience
An established brand should have a good idea of its audience through previous traditional marketing efforts. Digital strategy and the audiences that it can reach should be used as an opportunity to re-evaluate the audience. Digital allows niche markets and subcultures of existing audiences to be targeted at a comparatively reduced overhead. Whilst the success of a digital strategy is not inversely proportional to audience segmentation and targeting, a balance should be reached where the message of a campaign within a strategy is focused enough to be relevant, but wide enough to engage with the correct size population to deliver returns without being too reliant on a small subset of people.
Finding your audience
One of the benefits of digital strategy is the opportunity to segment activity into different spheres and places directly targeted to the location of the audience – or more specifically the personas matching the aims of the digital strategy. Targeting activities in this way can be used to reduce cost whilst increasing efficiency and message for each of the channels based in these locations.
