New innovations as well existing trends ramping up in popularity present challenges but also plenty of opportunities for savvy businesses. The first step to successfully executing your 2024 strategy is to get on top of the latest trends and stay ahead of the game – that’s where we have you covered. Here are our top tips or trends we’ll see more of in the world of digital marketing well into 2024. AI-Powered Marketing Solutions: We said it before and we’ll say it again, AI is set to revolutionise digital marketing, enabling personalised customer experiences, data-driven insights, efficient campaign optimisation and much MUCH more. Midjourney, generative AI that creates images based on text prompts, Bard, a conversational AI tool by Google allowing users to brainstorm ideas amongst other productivity accelerators, and notable additions to ChatGPT including OpenAI’s Dall-E 3 image generator, will only grow in popularity. In a recent blog on GateNotes, Bill Gates pegged AI as about to “completely change the way (we) use computers.” Put simply, businesses who do not leverage AI-driven tools to enhance customer engagement will miss out. Sustainable Marketing Practices: Incorporating eco-friendly initiatives, promoting ethical sourcing and production methods, and keeping the circular economy firmly in mind in all digital marketing practices, will appeal to environmentally and socially conscious audiences (which are only growing). Video Marketing: Video content continues to dominate the digital landscape by offering an engaging platform to showcase products and services. Interactive videos, live streaming, and video storytelling, will only grow in popularity into 2024. Get onboard! Hyper-Personalisation and Customer Data Privacy : As consumer privacy concerns continue to shape digital practices, businesses must prioritise transparent data collection practices and “hyper-personalisation” without compromising customer privacy – essential for building trust and loyalty. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) Integration: Immersive and interactive brand experiences, fostering deeper consumer engagement and increasing brand affinity are de rigueur in digital marketing and this looks set to stay with us far into 2024 and beyond. Multi-Channel Marketing Integration: Building a cohesive marketing strategy across various digital touchpoints – social media, email, search engine – is crucial for maximising brand exposure and driving customer engagement. Mobile Optimisation: With the majority of online searches (and transactions!) made via mobile devices, we know ensuring seamless mobile optimisation is paramount. But do we? Websites are still designed using desktop and so more than ever, web builders need to put the mobile user journey front-and-centre and consider this across theming. Voice Search: With the increasing popularity of voice-activated devices and smart assistants, optimising content for voice search is fast-becoming crucial for improving online visibility. Implementing long-tail keywords and natural language phrases specific to your audience can significantly boost SEO rankings. To assess your existing digital strategy or create one, get in touch .
