Understanding digital and its reach as well as how to gain data that’s matched to your business direction is essential. Sometimes people get it wrong, they don’t know how to use the changes to their ad-vantage, so it’s possible for things to go terribly wrong, with a huge waste of budget and lack of understanding being the cost. According to Digital Report, which is produced together with Hootsuite and We Are Social - digital, mobile, and social media are leading the way.
