Digital marketing planning is no different to any other marketing plan, in fact it’s increasingly
strange to have separate plans for ‘digital’ and ‘offline’ since that’s not how your customers
perceive your business. However, we’re often required to separate plans for “digital” only
based on the way teams and reporting is structured and to help the transition to digital -
before it becomes “business as usual”. A common format helps align your plan to other
marketing plans!

Some general advice to keep in mind when planning

  • Start with the customer. Build your plan around customer insights and needs - not
  • around your products and tactics.
  • Keep it flexible. Situations and plans change, especially online, so ensure plans are usable by a clear vision for the year and keeping detail to a shorter term 90-day focus.
  • Set realistic goals. Include specific objectives in your plans but keep them realistic by fact-based and state assumptions, so they’re easy for others to buy into.
  • Keep it Simple! “Jargon light” is best. Again it helps others buy into what you’re saying
  • Keep plans up to date. Review and update monthly or quarterly.
  • There isn’t a perfect plan. What’s needed changes according to each business!
