Consumers don’t see 'channels'. They only see brands to facilitate their needs in the moment. Yet despite this, businesses are often structured, resourced and budgeted around individual marketing channels, which can lead to a disconnect between consumers and brands….or even within businesses themselves.
This is no chalk and talk session. Using a case study throughout the day, this practical one-day course provides you with the strategic planning tools to take a compelling campaign proposition to market, with a multichannel marketing strategy that ensures you can deliver the right content, to the right person, through the blend of channels they prefer.
Having mapped out the multichannel activation plan for your brand, you will then gain an understanding of the key measures and how to bring these together in a meaningful context.
The day starts with discussion around some of the organisational barriers that inhibit multichannel activation with some fascinating examples of successful and not-so-successful campaigns.
We’ll then work through a strategic planning framework to create a campaign proposition. This will become the foundation of your content and multichannel strategy.
You'll map out the customer journey, from awareness to advocacy, exploring the most effective journey models.
The course will provide a solid understanding of multiple and integrated digital marketing channels outlining the part they play at each stage of the customer journey and how they can work together to achieve better results.
Last but not least, you’ll address effective measurement techniques and discuss how you can overcome common challenges around multichannel reporting.
The day is peppered with real-life case studies and anecdotes; also offering the opportunity for delegates to share and discuss their own specific challenges.
The course is organised into four key areas: audience, journey, channels and measurement; delegates can expect to leave the day with a framework they can apply to their own roles.
