Reading through ReviewsBird.com, you’ll find reviews of several top brands regarding their services and how they operate. With regards to digitalisation, the internet has made a lot of things easier and more accessible, but to thrive in it, you should know how it works.
To break it down, here are 5 digital marketing trends to expect in 2021.
1. Automated Bidding in Google Ads:
It allows the marketer to tweak and adjust keywords. Having made its way back in 2016, automated bidding has improved over the years. Though the tweaking sometimes comes at a price, the more hours involved, the higher the management expenses. It also allows Google to automate initial moves to adjust your bid in real-time.
2. Local Search Engine Optimization (SEO):
Google updates their local SEO algorithm often. So, as a local business owner, you should create ways to update your business profile, let your customers know of discounts, changes, or other information by making sure it pops up in local results. Compared to the wide SEO, local SEO allows people to search for brands and products within their specific geographic zone because of the ease of purchase. To do this, you should be verified by Google, and signing up makes you rank higher in the Google SERPs, which gives additional information about your company.
3. Customer Segmentation:
Customers don’t have the same demands. With customer segmentation, you can group your audience by demographics, budget, and shopping habits. This way you can separate the mails that go into each category. You don’t want to send the mail of an extravagant shopper to a minimalist shopper.
4. Images and Video Visual Searches:
Not every voice search brings out the expected results you desire. But, with image or video search customers can get the exact product they inputted. As a company, to make your images or videos rank high, you should add alt texts in your description, create an image sitemap separately, and use high-quality images and videos.
5. Social Media Engagement:
Social media has made a lot of things easier. People spend hours online searching for brands, products and much more. This is an opportunity for marketers to increase their social media contents and target audience which can be done by making regular posts and good content planning by reviewing customers’ responses via various interactive assessments like surveys, polls and quizzes.
There are various trends to follow and it is necessary to understand these digital marketing concepts to benefit your business, help you generate more sales and thrive in the larger market.
