We take the time to understand the following, before planning your campaign strategy with an integrated approach:

·         Defining your campaign goals. No campaign can be effective without a clear goal or goals from the outset.

·         Identify who you are targeting with your campaign. Campaigns are a great vehicle for honing in on specific audience segments in your target market. Your target market consists of a shared set of traits, behaviours, interests and values that represent your target audience, ideal customer or current buyer.

·         Choosing your digital channels with the target audience in mind and what will work for your business: Successful digital marketing campaigns often involve a mix of touchpoints including your website, content, emails, social media and paid ads.

·         Your digital marketing capabilities and content production expertise in house.

·         Your website platform, performance, CMS and any maintenance requirements.

·         Your budget. We assist you to identify and work through any costs your digital marketing campaign may incur so that together we can build a feasible plan that fits your budget. Your campaign budget not only shapes your paid advertising strategy - such as which channels you advertise on, the types of ads you run, or how long you run them. It also informs resourcing decisions. Consider whether you’ll need to hire any third-party designers, developers, or content writers to get the work done on time.

Digital marketing will get you where you need to be, where your customers are and when they are looking for information, relating to your products or services

There is no doubt digital transformation should be top of the list for all businesses to successfully navigate into the future. According to DATAREPORTAL, there are 38.19 million internet users in South Africa, as of January 2021. There are also 25 million social media users in South Africa, as of January 2021.

The reason digital marketing is taking the world by storm is because consumer buying behaviour has changed. Think about your own behaviours – how you research and search for products, where you spend most of your time when online, where you have the most conversations. New technologies like Wi-Fi and wearable technologies like smartwatches make the internet easily available.

Integrated Digital Marketing Solutions from Ideation Digital will deliver results and we show you how, every step of the way, to a real return on investment.
