Online Strategy

Your online strategy is the starting point, don’t build a website or launch an online campaign without a strategic context. This context has two important perspectives:

  • An outward facing perspective: What are the needs of your customers and new prospects? What is happening in the marketplace? What are your competitors doing? What opportunities are there in terms of online?
  • An inward facing perspective: What is your company’s overall strategy? What are your organization’s core goals and objectives in terms of reach, revenue, loyalty and customer satisfaction? Is your organization e-ready? Are your systems ready to support your online presence? What metrics are important for managing your business, how can you measure this data and turn it into actionable insights?

Your online strategy absolutely has to:

  • Support your business goals: marketing, sales, customer services, operations and communications.
  • Improve your corporate and brand reputation.
  • Govern what online channels you use and how.
  • Provide a framework for you and your team to manage an increasingly complex online presence.

Many online projects fail because of an absence of an online strategy or gaps in executing it.
