6 Factors in Developing a Digital Strategy
Developing a comprehensive digital strategy is not an easy process. At I-ology, we help organizations develop their digital strategy by using these 6 key factors.
- Understand your target audience and develop user personas as a base to the strategy
Research target audience(s) and engagement with your brand. Discover high, middle, and low performing areas by understanding audience interaction. Create user personas that represent attributes for key target audiences.
- Create a succinct digital vision and set specific goals
Develop a digital vision that aligns with your organization’s goals and impact to the business. Collaborate with organizational leadership to crystalize that vision. Create 2-4 quantifiable goals within a 3 to 5 year period that will lead your organization towards the vision.
- Develop a digital roadmap that intersects marketing & technology projects
Create a 1 year digital plan that describes the tactics that will be used to achieve your goals. Produce the best results by aligning your digital strategy and business roadmap that complement one another. Prioritize both marketing and technology projects which are aligned to create a holistic portfolio of projects that can save on costs and not duplicate efforts.
- Execute on projects that increase operational efficiency & drive customer acquisition & retention
Discover opportunities that will streamline both your internal operations and optimize customer interactions with the organization. These projects aim to save on overhead costs and increase customer satisfaction. Plan your resources with your departments to schedule how each project will be executed. Collaborate to determine how each project will be carried out and measured successfully to reach your goals and vision. Utilize technology to elevate marketing campaigns and focus on cohesively promoting your call to action, message and brand.
- Establish Digital Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
Tie meaningful and specific metrics that indicate the performance of your projects and tactics, and tie back to the digital vision. Focus on areas which allow the organization to move the needle on digital success. Know how measurement will be tracked and analyzed before project launches. Start monitoring before launch so you have a baseline to measure against.
