    Customer insights are highly sought after, and a common challenge for marketers is not only extracting valuable customer feedback but turning that feedback into actionable insights. It’s not enough to just know your customers – you need to be able to communicate with them where, when and how they are most receptive to your message. The deeper your insight is into customer preferences, the more possibility you have to engage them in a long-lasting profitable relationship. Harnessing the power of Digital marketing is important – but not to the exclusion of all else.

    In this session you will learn:

    • How to make the most of any amount of data you collect via the Digital Landscape
    • How to integrate Digital Marketing strategy into your overall marketing mix
