My Digital Strategy Model – Understand the industry by doing online market research, use the data gained to bring visitors to your site. Once you get them to your site, use analytics to find the most effective channels, and build out a KPI to measure against. Then ultimately use internal marketing to drive conversion, and validate an ROI against the conversion with the channels and campaign information that was gained in site acquisition. All validated by analytics, and data to drive business decisions. More details, and an introduction to the model can be found in this blog post.
