Digging Into Your Online Brand

Your first assignment is to pick a brand and audit their digital footprint. What platforms are they on? What type of content do they publish? What is their website like? etc...

You'll probably find some things that don't make total sense. Why is my brand not on Twitter? Why is their website setup this way?

Sometimes the answer is not so obvious. Here is a chance to learn more. What have you come across that you'd like some clarity on?

Determining KPIs, How to Start a Blog and Why Don't People Spend More on Digital?

Q: In a world that has a continuing emphasis on growth digitally, why would a company choose to only allocate around 20% of their marketing budget towards digital media? Where are the other major areas that the budget is being allocated?

A: It's hard to say for sure, but I suspect a variety of reasons. One, some companies might be slow to change because large organizations are naturally slow. A small company and quickly shift most of their advertising budget to digital, but for that to happen with a large company there has to be a culture shift.
