The below guides are all built with a few concepts in mind to help you set up your digital marketing function with confidence.

  1. Considerations - Every small business is different, and each deserves a different plan. That’s why you’ll find considerations that need to be discussed by you and your team to help you craft your strategy.

  2. Actionable Tactics - I don’t believe in large slabs of text that leave you with nowhere to go. That’s why you’ll find actionable points in each of these guides.

  3. Examples - Be inspired by companies that have done it before. There’s no need to walk this line alone while there’s countless examples out there of companies that have done it before.

I study marketing and this information is very interesting to me. Last year I prepared a course paper on this topic. And thanks to the site I found assistants who helped me complete my assignment. I wouldn't have time to collect statistics and other materials for my task.


Thanks for useful tips!
