Goal-setting advice best practice for digital marketing
I find when reviewing online marketing strategies in student assignments or real-world live assignments that the different aspects of strategy often aren’t well integrated.
Although online marketing strategies are usually well structured into the SOSTAC® structure featured in our online marketing strategy template, the sections aren’t often well related. It’s not clear how each strategy is supporting a goal or the analysis on which its based.
A simple method of showing the integration and providing a one pager summary of the digital strategy summary is to use a table set out as below with separate columns for SMARTER goals (see end of page), substantation (based on the situation analysis) and strategies. This can also include the KPIs for success.
