Understanding the opportunity for growth online
TNS, November 2011
The Internet has made our world and the way we build businesses more dynamic and complex than ever. Opportunities and threats exist on a global basis that were unprecedented just a decade ago. The Internet now impacts all elements of a business’ growth plans. In order to succeed, brands need to embed digital into their marketing strategies.
Engaging with customers online requires a deep understanding of their motivations, opinions and attitudes - and their resulting actions and behaviour.
