What Is a Digital Marketing Plan?

A digital marketing plan (or digital marketing strategy) outlines how to drive traffic to your website, attract leads, and convert leads to customers. It’s the foundation for all marketing activities. It should include business goals, the digital marketing strategies needed to reach those goals, and a budget.

How Do I Create a Digital Marketing Plan?

There are 5 steps to create a digital marketing plan for your business:

  1. Brainstorm goals: Identify the overarching objectives you want to achieve with digital marketing.
  2. Define your unique value: Understanding the unique value of each product or service you’re marketing helps you send the right message to leads.
  3. Create buyer personas: Use data about your customer base to segment your audience. Think about how each audience grouping interacts with your business. What messaging would appeal to them the most?
  4. List the marketing channels you plan to use: Each digital marketing channel has pros and cons. Align your goals and buyer personas with digital marketing channels that make sense for your business.
  5. Set a budget: Your budget will determine how much money you can invest in each marketing channel.

What Should a Digital Marketing Plan Include?

A digital marketing plan should include the following:

  1. SMART Goals: Goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and timely.
  2. SWOT Analysis: Explore strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threads of different marketing activities to prioritize the best ones for your business.
  3. Audience Analysis: Who is your audience? How does each audience grouping find and interact with your business? What is the best messaging for each audience?
  4. Marketing Tactics: List the marketing strategies you will use to meet your SMART goals.
  5. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs): Define how you will measure success for each marketing tactic.
