RACE digital marketing planning system

Smart Insights have created a model called RACE to help plan digital marketing campaigns and objectives.

Before you can RACE, you need to plan, so there are five steps to the model:

PlanThis phase involves creating a digital strategy and transformation plan. You need to review your current use of digital media and technology, create a vision, define objectives and create KPI dashboards to track performance.

ReachInvolves building awareness of a brand and itsproducts as your audience uses mobile and desktop devices. You need to choose the best mix of media to build traffic by driving visits to your website or social media pages.

ActAct is short for ‘interact’. You must devise the best customer journeys and content marketing to persuade visitors to become leads when they reach your website or social media site.

ConvertConvert is the all-important conversion of leads or inquiries into sales. You need toget your audience to take that next step, turning them into customers.

EngageYou need to develop customer retention plans using communications on your site, social presence, email and direct interactions to boost customer lifetime value. It’s also about improving customer experience and encouraging buyers to recommend you to others.
