Online presence via digital marketing

Your Digital Marketing Strategy

When it comes to marketing, there are a few trends to keep an eye on. From time to time, you need to evaluate things and see what has worked for you.

The last couple of years have seen increased sophistication in digital marketing. It has become an art and science in its own right. A couple of years ago, a business could get by with a basic social media profile and campaign, some email marketing, a decent website, and a few blog posts. That is no longer the case. You need to have a solid, focused digital strategy moving forward if you are planning to stay on the playing field.

Mobile First

This is a big one. People of all ages do not go anywhere without their mobile devices, not even to bed. The last couple of years were about being “mobile-friendly,” but that isn’t good enough anymore, you need to think mobile-first.

This approach requires an optimized online strategy with a mobile-first mindset. It’s about making sure that every aspect of the digital experience – from website design to content accessibility – is tailored for mobile users. A strong online presence is not just about being visible but being effectively accessible on mobile platforms. It involves developing a consistent online presence that resonates well with the lifestyle of the modern consumer. By prioritizing mobile optimization, you can ensure that you are not just reaching your audience but engaging them effectively where they are most active – on their mobile devices.


This is an opportunity to really shine as a company that puts its audience first. Creating useful web apps and free tools that allow you to better serve your customers is a trend to look for in the upcoming year.

Content Marketing

Yes, content is still king, but what does that mean? It means that it can’t be an afterthought. It needs to be well thought out and well managed. Due to the increased sophistication of content marketing, more and more businesses will either seek out the services of content marketing providers or hire a dedicated team to do it in-house. A skilled content marketing team can help run SEO-based digital marketing campaigns (Search Engine Optimization), to help your website rank better on search engines and help your content reach your target audience on social channels.

Increased Personalization

Growing Your Online Presence

It has never been more important to know who your audience is. More and more businesses are putting more resources into producing personalized content targeted at a very specific customer base. There are a number of tools available to help you do this. Here are a couple of ways to approach this in the upcoming year:

  • Create detailed avatars or buyer personas
  • Audience polls
  • Customer surveys
  • Social ads
  • Utilize Google My Business

5 Ways to Personalize Content

Email Marketing

This goes along with the above point. More and more businesses are sending out tailored email marketing campaigns, often “segmenting” their lists to address readers in different sales funnel areas.

Social Media Marketing

When constructing your social media strategy, remember that being everywhere is important to leverage your online presence.There are so many channels, and just picking two or three isn’t going to cut it anymore if you want to maximize your engagements. Social media platforms like Facebook are still important social networks, but so are Twitter and YouTube. Utilizing your social media presence effectively can help drive significant engagement and brand awareness. Here are some other social media platforms:

  • LinkedIn
  • Instagram
  • TikTok
  • Pinterest
  • Slideshare

It is important that you do not neglect the other social media channels. Incorporating social media to drive engagement involves more than just regular posting. It’s about creating content that leads to increased brand awareness. The power of social media is that it helps bridge the gap between brands and consumers, offering a direct line of communication and creating a sense of community.

Visual Marketing

This continues to be a hot topic in digital marketing. Brands will need to continue polishing their skills in this area to attract potential customers.

  • Infographics
  • Compelling images
  • Video

All of these need to be top-notch across all your content platforms to better your online presence.

Be Human

One trend to look for in the upcoming year is that digital marketing will become increasingly more entertaining and more “real.” People no longer respond to the hard sell or give in to aggressive marketing tactics.

People want stories, they want humor, and they want to connect. In today’s increasingly digital age, there is danger in coming across as impersonal. Solely focusing on conversion rates and your Google ranking, while important, won’t help your business show its human side and earn the attention of its audience.

Driven By Data

Digital Marketers can’t rely on estimates or guesses any longer when it comes to measuring the efficacy of their digital marketing strategies. An in-depth analysis of your marketing practices is essential in order to continue polishing your personal brand and lead generation. Using tools like Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and Google Ads canhelp you track important metrics to gain insight into your marketing strategy as well as your return on investment (ROI).
