About David's Presentation

Online Efficiency is a new term to many and perhaps not yet fully understood. An optimization strategy for your customer journey, interaction and continued communication across multiple devices is key, being careful not to focus on the wrong area to judge your customers views. The rise of social media has led to growing scepticism amongst digital marketers as to the attributable value of social marketing activity and a re-evaluation of what core digital activity should be for an online business. Digital marketers often start in the wrong place when trying to drive business but with the right online efficiency strategy the pitfalls could be avoided and returns could be vast.

Big Data is a commonly used phrase but a poorly executed strategy that few are able to embrace. Where is the data, what form is it in, what does it mean, does it drive my business? It's all about the approach to data and an understanding of anti-representationalism, simple principles to make your data valuable, so that your business can work. Segmentation and attribution is becoming increasingly important but not necessarily understood, its challenges emanating from the same issues that Big Data presents.

Internationalisation seems like a challenge for many businesses but it may just be the single biggest and easiest win you could attain. Understanding what an internationalisation strategy is and how to implement it is key but it has to make sense to your business and your margins. Internationalisation needs to be absorbed as part of your business' fabric rather than being looked as a second-thought distribution channel. Get it right and the results will outweigh what you achieve in your own core territory.
