Usually the first step is the hardest. The digitization of communication is unavoidable: it’s already happening and will only continue. Everything will soon be digital. Digital communication has other rules and you have to want to understand those rules. You will only do so by rolling up your sleeves and learning as much as possible. Keep an open mind.
There are things you simply cannot know
What do my target groups want to read? How do they want to be presented this information? What’s their ideal frequency? What’s the ideal size? What else can I do to help my clients with content? How do I ensure they take action based on this content? You will find out for yourself! You will perform measurements, you will find out what people find interesting and you will ask what could be improved. Keep an open mind and you will be pleasantly surprised.
Engage your customers in dialogue
This may seem like the obvious thing to do, but sit your customer (or advertiser) down for a good chat. Involve him in the ‘going digital’ process. How would the customer prefer to get their content? Which form of advertising would best suit their needs? The customer will give you valuable information and it’s good for building a strong relationship. Your customer or advertiser will greatly appreciate having been involved.
