Audits & Analytics

5forests’ Audits dive deep into your first-party data and user experience to identify opportunities and weaknesses in your website, social media, email marketing, and digital advertising. A 5forests audit is ideal for businesses who have their own inhouse teams but need a fresh look at what’s going on. Our recommendations will help you and your team develop a plan of action for change: how to spend your marketing dollars, where to spend, and where to save.
