In one of the programs, I met with a manager who owned a very successful offline business and had added the online part to the collection in the last few years. The problem was that the manager of the company, despite being highly capable and even having academic knowledge in management, was not familiar enough with the online space. This issue had created many problems in the business of this company.
This company had hired forces for different parts of the site and social media, but there were many problems in this direction:
The different parts were not coordinated.
The work of each group did not complete the work of the other group.
Some challenges were very time consuming to solve.
A lot of money was wasted on campaigns and advertisements.
And the worst part was that the manager of the complex was not sure whether each of his forces was doing their job properly or not.
On the other hand, the employees of the complex were frustrated and discouraged from not getting the necessary results despite their great efforts, and little by little there was a danger that the employees would lose their motivation to solve the challenges and interact with the manager.
The set of these issues made the company's managers think of using digital marketing consulting.
These problems are not new and rare problems. Many companies, even medium and large companies and even digital marketing companies with the best marketing managers, need an external supervisor and multi-specialist advice.
