Your learning journey

What is the Brand Activation Lab?

It's an end-to-end workshop to build a digital marketing campaign that targets your customer at the right time, with the right message through the right ad format.

Delivered by an expert facilitator who presents the session and leads group activities through break out rooms, the Brand Activation Lab explores how to map a customer through their non-linear journey to purchase and understand their buying intent and the information they require.

we discover the type of message and ad format that should be used that suits the stage of the customer journey and their intent.

To ensure the activity to reach the customer is successful, we learn which metrics can be adopted.

Finally, we develop a roadmap that plans how frameworks and concepts can be adopted within the organisation is developed.
