The mini case is NOT a complete written case study, it is required to answer the study questions that accompany case along with the four requirements below questions. I need to apply the concepts/analytical tools professor teaches.

Thinking about a digital-first strategy, how should Swoon implement a marketing strategy and go to market tactics in order to achieve its goals and support its brand?
