Firm quickly needs digital marketing diligence on target
Understanding the digital landscape has never been more important. Our PE firm client needed a resource to perform digital marketing due diligence for an e-commerce-enabled aftermarket products business. To build confidence in the investment, our client needed to know more about the target’s SEM, SEO, user experience (UX), and transaction process (mobile versus desktop, etc.) capabilities, as well as gain clear insight into the state of the platform itself. Additionally, the client required a quick turnaround time.
