Directionless Marketing campaign
Having a focus, direction or goal for an online marketing campaign is vital.

This is the most common mistake made by business owners without realising how important it is to have a clear strategy in place. You may think doing a bit of everything – SEO, Google Ads, Content sums up your marketing strategy, well NOT!!
In other words, document your strategy and have a clear view of the steps you’re going to take in the future.
