When it comes to setting up a marketing campaign strategy, the #1 objective is to be efficient. It's not just important to have the campaign implemented at the right time, but rather to do the right thing that will lead to positive results.

I strongly disagree and believe you need all the channels to make a good, efficient marketing campaign that leads to a foundational strategy.
