Digital Campaign Execution

Budgeting, Project Management and Processes


What do marketing leaders struggle with more?  Is it strategy or is it executing a strategy successfully?  Which do you find you discuss more with senior leadership and at conferences?  Do campaigns fail because their strategy is faulty or because not enough attention was paid to execution?  The secret to campaign success often lies in the processes that are in place, how a project is managed and what budgeting tactics are used.  Join us for the April Executive Luncheon where we will discuss:

  • What project management strategies work best for which types of campaigns?
  • Implementing best practice business processes and workflows to ensure follow through and to flag problems
  • Processes for working with agencies and vendors
  • Tactical budgeting for digital campaigns
  • How to structure and organize a team for execution success
