Using the as-is report the next step is to create an improvement plan. Each winery is different. Your digital marketing maturity is one key aspect that influences the agenda. Where to start changes depends, however, on other vital factors. There is no one single recipe. Your sales strategy, your team’s social media skills and their ability to change all play a role in defining the right sequence of changes. Whether to turn your event promotion practices around, build a content management framework or adjust your social footprint first depends on your winery’s specific circumstances. That is why the proper definition of the improvement steps and targeted process model are key.
