What Is A Digital Strategy?

Whitney breaks it down for us right out the gate. She says, “how you are attracting an audience using digital tools.” Examples of this include: 

  • Email marketing
  • Social media 
  • Website 
  • Hosting events 

A successful digital strategy helps you pull in an audience that can be nurtured and converted into paying customers. 

How Did You Learn About Digital Strategy? 

Whitney attended school to be a Dietitian and she pursued a lot of self-education to beef up her tech knowledge. If anyone else is interested in learning more, she suggests:

  • Taking advantage of free books and resources from her local library
  • Attending networking events with other women in tech 
  • Completing online courses on Coursera or LinkedIn
  • Trial and error through her website and brand-building experiences 

The most important thing is to put yourself out there. If you see someone online doing something cool that you’d like to do, send them a message! Whitney says people have been very happy to share knowledge and are very open to connecting online.
