Digital strategy success factors

Learn how to define a structure and scope for your omnichannel marketing strategy

Module purpose

Success in digital marketing requires you to review and prioritize from the many digital communications techniques available across the customer lifecycle, from customer acquisition to retention.

If you don’t have a planning framework in place, you may miss out on opportunities to grow your business. This module explains and compares three complementary frameworks for structuring a digital strategy, including the RACE Growth System and SOSTAC, which can be used to ensure you develop a well structured, comprehensive plan.
