This is my 10 minute digital marketing strategy template. It’s designed with questions to take you from your current situation to evaluation of the activities you choose to do. This is a very swift, not that in dept process, which purpose is to get you started.
If you are managing more then one market, simply add a section to cater for that. Of course its also available as a download (word) which you can get from the document s & templates section.
Note that this version requires you to already have done your homework in terms of your brand, it’s role in digital (tone of voice, how to communicate with copy, images etc, story, values and so on) as well as product and offering.
