  1. Online marketing – It’s about more than having a pretty website.
    From customer satisfaction to the importance of certain aspects of your company, this is a very versatile option to use
    in your online marketing questionnaires. Both reach and targeting are very important factors
    to be considered when drafting digital marketing plans as they
    significantly affect the effectiveness of the plan.
