5 Digital Marketing Factors for 2017
The key to digital marketing is a bit of an oxymoron: Focused Variation
It requires a focused effort on various fronts. The five most beneficial factors of digital marketing to implement into your marketing mix. There are few companies that have a digital marketing expert on staff, and even fewer with job roles specific to maintaining the brand voice in the digital world.

This is where your data collection efforts are reaped. By keeping an audience engaged with a flow of marketing messages they deemed as relevant, you are keeping clients and leads close. You never know which message is going to be the driving force of closing a sale, so keep your list fresh and messages fresher. Email marketing can either be a efficient artillery or a self-destructive grenade. When implemented correctly – design, copy and list – it’s the bazooka in your marketing arsenal. When done incorrectly – ugly or outdated design, irrelevant copy and unfiltered list – it will blow up in your face.
