We know it can be annoying having to go back over startegy again, especially when some of it is by nature hypothetical, but this puts both of us in the same place with a shared goal and it drives the best possible outcomes
The second order of business is to get the right data integrations in place so we have the information we need to test our ideas and make the best possible decisions based on evidence rather than guesswork. Often we will want to talk to real customers too. The best results are driven by data combined with instinct and experience.
Essentials first then priorities for best expected return.
Constant correct testing and monitoring is key to good results. Getting to understand the customer experience and motivations is key. Regular reviews are important.
Some aspects of Digital marketing and SEO are ongoing because customers, the environment and products change constantly, but it is not a given that you need the same effort on an ongoing basis. If the job is done, we will tell you so. If it needs less work there is a chance to cut costs. We will sit and consider the business case again and decide what next.
If you rely on attracting local customers, this is the best move of 2019.
