#LetsTalkDigital: The race to digital marketing maturity with Lorraine Landon and Bridget Ngcobo

The digital maturity race belongs to the swift — and many companies need to accelerate their efforts to catch up. Digitally mature advertisers are better able to respond to changing market dynamics.

My guests today are Lorraine Landon, specialist lead for SSA at Google and Bridget Ngcobo, banking industry manager. Today we talk about the state of digital marketing maturity in SA, some of the challenges brands are being faced with and digging into the findings from the latest BCG/Google Report. All brands have access to a free online DMM Assessment Tool which can determine your level of maturity starting from Nascent to Multi-moment.
