D4i Strategy

At CESM, we apply a unique  and consultative methodology, known simply as D4i Strategy, to create data driven marketing strategies that achieve client goals for growth and retention.

D4i can be employed as a step by step, closed loop process or in single stages based on the distinct needs of each client. Every stage leverages insight to develop marketing strategy. See the infographic below for an overview of each stage.
