This pandemic is constantly reshaping how we market and promote our businesses. Consumer behaviors are changing. We are seeing more online buying and a huge shift to digital business models.
While we wait for a return to normal, let’s explore some of the top digital marketing trends.
With the shift to online buying, it has become more important than ever than companies ensure their online presence and processes are mobile-friendly.
With shoppable posts, social commerce plugins and apps, and ads on social media with CTAs to ecommerce sites, businesses are now selling directly on social media platforms.
Interactive content such as 360° videos, AR/VR, shoppable posts, quizzes, and polls are providing an alternate way for users to connect with businesses. Interactive content is highly shareable and increases brand awareness.
