Mick Say is the Digital Coach at the Online Marketing Academy.
The online world is very different today than it was five years ago and in five years time it will be very different again. A new breed of digital consultant is evolving to help organisations adapt to these changes.
The Digital Coach is armed with the know-how to help organisations navigate these uncertain online waters.
What remains constant is the organisations motives for being online: > Increased profitable revenue, staying one step ahead of their competition winning more new business and managing customer retention in an increasingly competitive online market place.
Organisations will have many online objectives such as:
- Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
- Social Media Integration
- Prospect Data Capture
- Email and Contact Marketing
- List Management
Most organisations will currently have an online architecture, you possibly have a number of resources on the internet. Questions the organisation needs to ask themselves are:
- Are they still effective?
- Were they ever effective?
- Will they be effective in the future?
Developing a Digital Strategy
Unless members of your online marketing team are experts in current digital technology then the answers to the above questions is probably no. Or if you outsource your website and online marketing real-estate to an agency, how do you measure their effectiveness and, do you trust them with the future of your business?
For many organisations an online presence is possibly not their most pressing issue, their issues may be:
- Reducing net profit,
- Declining customer numbers,
- Reducing sales volume, or
- Managing the cost of sales.
If these are the issues your organisation is struggling with then the Online Digital Coach could be the catalyst needed to help you address the issues.
Static Corporate websites and disjointed online real-estate is passé and counterproductive. This is the decade of “connectedness” with all connections leading to a central hub. This hub is no longer the internal or field sales team and it’s not a flash or static website. It is a high-tech online marketing platform which acts like a customer magnet drawing visitors to the hub, creating the desire for the visitor to take action.
And when visitors land at the hub, the platform can deliver on their expectations. Your digital strategy could well be the most important aspect of your organisations marketing plan.
