Digital Strategy Development

So, you think you’re ready to roll out your marketing programs, huh? Not so fast! First, you need to develop a marketing strategy. What does “strategy development” mean for marketing, you ask? Well, to develop a marketing strategy means to isolate/identify your business’s target market (ie your ideal customer), decide on some measurable goals, conduct market research and implement a plan to reach your goals (from step 2), using the tactics and marketing activities suggested by your market research.


Key components of your strategy development should include:

    • Target Markets: A target market is a particular segment of a population identified through market research as the ideal customers for your business. Criteria for a target market include income level, age, geographic location, and many other variables.
    • Goals: Precise goals are a key element of your marketing strategy. Generally, your goals should focus on finance and distribution milestones that will give you a clear indicator of whether your marketing strategy is working.
    • Research: Thorough market research will prevent wasted effort and help tweak your marketing so you can reach your target market most successfully.
    • Evaluation & Adjustment: Strategy development doesn’t end once your campaign drops and leads start rolling in. You must continue to evaluate, adjust, and fine-tune your strategy to achieve continued growth.
