How digital marketing will change in 2020?
If there is something many people are used to with digital marketing is with the obvious changes it has every year. Trends change and not only that, digital technologies and everything online or on the Internet also evolve and make things different in the way businesses aim for their customers online. However, indeed, some aspects that are not related to the typical social media changes or of the sort are more relevant than these.
For example, the main goal of using digital marketing is that businesses are able to focus and identify the target audience in order to generate more customers and revenue. But focusing on this only is not everything in this marketing, especially right now in 2020. Businesses and brands need to customize their strategies and designs to the needs and preferences of potential customers, but they also have to focus on making sure they are able to see the difference between, for example, your company and the other competitors. So, to make this concept simple: this year, digital marketing will be all about creating remarkable experiences for the customers and making sure that instead of quantity in the content and ads, the quality reigns over it.
Before, it was about being everywhere even if the ads or content were not amazing nor close to it. Eventually, people would access or get curious about the brand and give it a chance. But nowadays, users and customers hate ads and content that is not useful and even start to be annoying to look at everywhere. And we know that even you as an individual can feel related to this.
Why is it important for you to know about the changes?
Well, if you want to continue being successful or start to be, you need to keep updated with everything in the business world. Digital marketing is one of the top things and areas in your list if you desire to not lose with your competitors. And more than that, marketing is always a trend just like clothes and even technology. People get tired of something and for a business to continue having their attention and more importantly, loyalty, it needs to be interesting. Now, the previous change we mentioned is not the only one you need to be conscious about and research as much as possible.
Every change comes with a reason why you must know it and even implement it in your own business. Therefore, let’s go over the most relevant ones for this year:
- Artificial intelligence.
This is definitely the one you will read and listen to everywhere. And this is because AI is changing not only marketing but everyone’s life in general. If you do not believe us, just think about the times you use Alexa to play a song or the assistance you can find on websites and several places. As someone who was not too happy about artificial intelligence although I know quite well about its benefits and importance, I can assure you things will move around it more than ever starting this year.
In business and the marketing field, it is due to the benefit to save resources and time in several tasks and responsibilities that are usually handled by humans. It will bring more opportunities and people will be able to focus on several areas and tasks they were neglecting all this time. A direct change for digital marketing will be the areas of analysis, data, and statistics. It is not strange to notice artificial intelligence in businesses that are already handling this part of the development of marketing campaigns and boosting the results thanks to the information obtained and analyzed.
- Conversational marketing.
This has been around for a while now, but it was not as popular as people thought it would be at the beginning. However, due to certain trends and circumstances—especially with the pandemic going on—, people love the idea of accessing services and products or just contacting a brand directly. To be clearer about it, customers like to receive a direct reply when they have questions and even feel they are in a conversation with the person replying and making suggestions. With the previous change—AI—, chatbots are included and efficient, but the conversational option is quite assertive and allows businesses to customize or personalize the attention to its potential customers and current ones.
Following the last idea, being able to provide a customized ad or option to the potential customer is what can change the percentage of success in converting him or her into a real one. People are used to looking at general ads and digital marketing methods where a large group can feel identified and be interested in. And this is why it has become boring. The idea of customizing the attention, products, services, and every small detail in how you approach your customers online will be game-changing. Of course, some aspects will not be able to adjust to this change, but being aware of it and implementing the idea in as many aspects as possible will be the goal of all businesses.
