JSB’s Column | Have you planned your digital marketing for 2017?
In this first show of 2017 I thought I’d give you some helpful tips on how to plan your digital marketing plan for 2017. So JSB’s column is dedicated to this!
I’ve been getting lots of calls and requests from companies over the past number of weeks in relation to planning their digital strategy for 2017. With this in mind I decided to set out six simple steps that you might take to help you clearly plan your digital marketing activities for the year ahead.
This is in no way comprehensive, but is a set of steps to get you out of the blocks, if you like.
Social Media Tool of the Week
With 320 million active monthly users, Twitter is a great place to build brand profile and powerful business relationships. In fact, 36% of businesses say they have won business directly from Twitter. And I’m one of them.
But the social media tool that saved my working week kills two birds with one stone! One twitter bird and one blogging promotion bird!
I’m a weekly blogger and to generate more views for my posts, I use the Tweet This WordPress plugin. But guess what? It also help me gain new Twitter followers. Listen to the podcast to find out how!
