There are 6 key elements to running a digital marketing campaign
- 1. Campaign goals and tracking
Is the focus on creating brand awareness, customer acquisition or retention and growth? Define SMART objectives based on a simple funnel. Keep them tied to measurable KPIs and link to a cash value of revenue and profit – this way is easier to justify marketing spend.
- 2. Campaign insight and targeting
Target audiences – use primary and secondary personas. Define demographics.
- 3. Key campaign messages and offers
Define “The Big Idea” What do you want your audience to do, think, or feel? What is in it for them? Where is the value exchange? How will you connect with and convince your audience using content marketing at the core of the campaign?
- 4. Campaign media plan and budget
What is the strategic communications approach you’re using. It’s important to define this so that you can get aligned to the wider business and ensure you choose the right communication channels, promotional tactics, offers and creative approach.
