If you can’t tell someone the reason for the content you put online then you have no goal. Your goal develops from knowing your business and your customers. Once you have a goal, then you can start implementing your online tactics. There is no way to successfully deploy tactics with no goal. There is a method behind doing online marketing correctly. If you implement a certain tactic online it is because you expect your customers will take the sort of action you desire which will result in your goal, which could be more sales for example. A goal can be measured. So can your progress, and whether or not your online marketing strategy is making an impact. Because an online strategy can be analyzed, then it also has to be adaptable. If your strategy isn’t working then it needs to be revised. There is no point in gathering insights into whether or not your online marketing strategy is working or not if you aren’t able to adapt it.
