Today on Digital Marketing Radio we discuss  how to create a holistic digital marketing strategy, with topics including:

  • Do you think that  brick and mortar businesses generally ‘get’ digital marketing nowadays more than they used to a few years ago?
  • What do you feel businesses struggle most with at the moment when it comes to digital marketing?
  • Tell me about your ‘SWOT’ approach to digital marketing
  • What would you say are the things that businesses think that they’re doing well – but they’re actually not?
  • If you’re doing work for a bigger business that employs multiple agencies to do different digital marketing activities – is it possible to tie everything together in a joint approach?
