By focusing on creating specific, targeted content, brands can ensure that their audience is more likely to be genuinely interested and engaged.

Victoria also expalins the practical steps of campaign improvement. She stresses the importance of a comprehensive audit to understand the customer journey and realign it with the campaign’s goals. Collaboration within the team is crucial to bring diverse perspectives and ideas into the problem-solving process. Clear communication and synchronized updates are vital to avoid disjointed efforts. By segmenting the audience based on engagement, brands can tailor their communication to address specific needs and objections. Finally, conducting a postmortem review helps in capturing learnings and refining strategies for future campaigns.
