Digital Marketing Predictions

What are the changes to your digital/social marketing?

Targeting will become more precise as data sets and machine learning continue to develop, which will make digital advertising more cost-effective and influence more brands to go digital-only in their advertising. Content will also become more immersive, as video grows in popularity. Big brands will begin to produce consistent and high-quality live video.

How will brands tie social/digital to business results?

Brands will look deeper into the two ends of their marketing funnel and how social can influence these elements, namely; Cost-of-acquisition and retention or lifetime value will become stronger indicators of social media marketing success, as they tie together to two of the most important business objectives.

What is the #1 thing brands can do to take social media out of the silo?

Content editorial. Executives soon will see the storytelling potential in platforms—Snapchat and Facebook Live are today’s two best examples—it becomes easier to think about platform strategy and investment from the very beginning of the production process.

As media consumers shift behind 1-1 platforms like Messenger and Snapchat, we must start to rethink how we measure impact – and place a higher emphasis on the individual user.

How will brands tie social/digital to business results?

Since platforms introduce direct conversion features, it is getting much easier to tie social efforts to business results. From a public media membership standpoint, “Donate” buttons are either here or soon to be accessible on our social platforms, and the partnerships major platforms like Facebook are working with third party verification companies like Nielsen are making it easier to prove the value for social visibility for sponsors.
