Digital marketing campaign


Published on

A worked example of a digital marketing campaign I devised for a marketing agency whose client is looking to promote an outdoor music event in June 2011.

The client is already promoting the event with (offline) adverts and leaflets, and backed up using PR. However, a portion of the budget was set aside for digital for which this campaign is based on.
