Why is a digital marketing plan important?

When I first started in digital marketing, I had no idea what I was doing. I was just doing whatever seemed like a good idea with no big picture holding it together.

As I realized, trying to do this without a cohesive plan and clear goals was like flying in the dark. I had no idea where I was going and didn’t know where we wanted to end up. Once I had this realization, I had a ton of questions nagging at me:

  • How do my different digital marketing channels work together?
  • Who is my audience for each of these campaigns?
  • How do I actually convert engagement into customers?

The solution was clear for me – create a digital marketing plan. I needed to see all my campaigns from a big picture perspective and know how they were all working together to achieve my goals.
