Digital marketing presents special challenges for its advocates. In addition, it is becoming more and more difficult to capture the attention of recipients, as receivers are being flooded with competitive advertisements.
Digital marketers find it challenging to analyze the vast trove of data they capture and then exploit this information in new marketing efforts.
You are directionless
I find that companies without a digital strategy (and many that do) have no clear strategic goals for what they want to accomplish online in terms of acquiring new customers or building deeper relationships with existing ones.
You won’t know your online audience or market share

You Don’t Have a Powerful Online Value Proposition
A clearly defined digital value proposition tailored to your different target customer personas will help you differentiate your online service by encouraging existing and new customers to engage and stay loyal initially.
Developing an omnichannel marketing strategy is important for many organizations, as content is what engages your audience through various channels such as search, social, email marketing, and on your blog.
You Don’t Know Your Online Customers Enough
It is often said that digital is “the most measurable medium ever”. But Google Analytics and similar visitors will only tell you the number of visits, not the feelings of the visitors, what they think. You need to use other forms of website user feedback tools to identify your weak points and then address them.
You are not integrated (“disintegrated”)
It is very common for digital marketing activities to be completed in silos, whether it is an expert digital marketer, sitting in IT, or a separate digital agency.
It’s easy to package ‘digital’ into convenient chunks. But of course, it is less effective. Everyone agrees that digital media works best when integrated with traditional media and feedback channels.
Digital does not have enough people/budget, it is given importance
Inadequate resources will be devoted to both planning and implementing e-marketing. Specific specialist e-marketing skills are likely to be lacking which will make it difficult to respond effectively to competitive threats.
As a member of Smart Insights, you will have access to strategy and planning tools, including performance and digital maturity benchmarking, and regular marketing data reports, so you can keep track of your position in the competitive landscape.
You’re Wasting Money and Time Through Limitation
Even if you have enough resources, they can be wasted. This is especially the case in large companies where you see different parts of the marketing organization buying different tools or using different agencies to perform similar online marketing tasks.
That’s why you need to invest in a marketing strategy that works for you and your team, in order to plan, manage and optimize your digital channels and platforms. Drive the marketing results you need to achieve your business objectives, and boost your marketing ROI.
You’re not agile enough to catch up or stay ahead
If you look at the top online brands like Amazon, Dell, Google, Tesco, Zappos, they are all dynamic – testing new ways to acquire or retain their online audience.
You’re Not Optimizing
Every company with a website will have analytics. But many senior managers aren’t sure whether their teams have the time to review and act on them.
Once your digital marketing strategy enables you to get the basics right, you can progress to continuous improvement of key aspects such as search marketing, site user experience, email, and social media marketing.
Digital marketing channel
A website is the centerpiece of all digital marketing activities. Alone, it is a very powerful channel, but it is also an essential medium for executing different types of online marketing campaigns.
A website should represent a brand, product, and service in a clear and memorable way. It should be fast, mobile-friendly, and easy to use.

PPC campaigns can segment users based on their demographic characteristics, or even target their particular interests or location. The most popular PPC platforms are Google Ads and Facebook Ads.
The goal of content marketing is to reach potential customers through the use of content. Content is usually published on a website and then promoted through social media, email marketing, SEO, or PPC campaigns.
Many digital marketers use all other digital marketing channels to add leads to their email lists and then. through email marketing, create a customer acquisition funnel so they can become customers.

The primary goal of a social media marketing campaign is to establish brand awareness and social trust. As you go deeper into social media marketing. You can use it to get leads or even as a direct sales channel.
