From waterfall to agile marketing
Waterfall marketing is the traditional, linear approach to marketing where each step in the process is completed before moving on to the next. It involves identifying the target market, creating a marketing plan, executing the plan, and evaluating the results.
Agile marketing is the newer, more flexible approach that emphasises rapid experimentation, continuous learning, and iteration. It involves identifying and prioritising high-impact marketing activities, executing them quickly, and continually adjusting/refining based on results.
