online in terms of gaining new customers

or building deeper relationships with existing ones -

And if you don't have goals

with SMART digital marketing objectives

you likely don't put enough resources

to reach the goals

and you don't evaluate through analytics

whether you're achieving those goals -

2. know your online audience or market share

Customer demand for online services

may be underestimated if you haven"t researched -

Perhaps, more importantly,

understand your online marketplace -

The dynamics will be different from traditional channels with different types of customer profile and behavior,



and options for marketing communications -

and planning.

It's often said that digital is the "most measurable medium ever".

Google Analytics and similar will only tell you volumes of visits,

not the sentiment of visitors,

what they think -

You need to use other forms of website user feedback tools to identify your weak points and then address them.

It's all too common for digital marketing activities to be completed in silos whether that's a specialist digital marketer, sitting in IT, or a separate digital agency -
