[Digital Marketing] Strategy trumps trends
[Digital Marketing] Strategy trumps trends

Twenty-seven million pieces of digital content shared on the internet in one day. That's one bit of content - a video, an article, a photograph, perhaps an infographic - for every second person in South Africa, every 24 hours. Over a year, that balloons to nearly 10 billion pieces of content, overtaking the number of people on Earth.
