Digital Marketing _ 2020

69 replies
Hi Everyone.

Just wondering if there are any new digital marketing trends in 2020. I recently came across a post on LinkedIn in which someone mentioned that
"content writing and the old SEO techniques will no longer work in 2020 (no suggestions were specified)."

So what's new in the market?
If you guys could pitch some of your ideas, that would be amazing.

    Marketing is always evolving. Things are definitely moving from desktop marketing (ecommerce) to mobile marketing. Most people want to put their head in the sand and not take advantage of this trend. Fact is by 2025 M-commerce will be considerably larger than traditional eCommerce.

    MOST information marketing people are still planning their businesses around email and what worked in 2010 BUT those that adopted mobile ready sales pages, app and easy to optin lead gen forms are going to win the race. I've had great success with SMS but it is tricky and not something you can simply spam.

    If you want these changes to happen or not....they are going to happen. 75% of all internet traffic is now from a mobile device.

    The trick now is to learn how to take advantage of this trend....

      Definitely voice search. I have been spending some time exploring content for SEO work. Reading up on psychology really helps to understand buyer behavior. In fact I went through an undergrad textbook which came well recommended to understand the basics. (Psychological Science)

      Interestingly this helps in any type of marketing, in case you want to fork out at a later date.

      Also high quality back links - can't beat that!

    Content marketing still works.

    It will always work because people will always only buy if they TRUST something

    If all you see is ads and they don't lead you to an info funnel where you get to KNOW, LIKE, and TRUST, you won't ever buy anything

    Surely, Content marketing will work in 2020.

    But SEO old techniques may not work like generating more backlinks from low-quality sites because nowadays if we generate few backlinks from the high domain authority site, that's enough to get a higher ranking.

    Marketing is marketing, and will always continue to be marketing.

    Referral marketing still works. Joint venture marketing still works. Starting your own affiliate program still works. Viral reports and ebook marketing still works. Promotion on forums and blogs still work. PPC and high traffic website advertising still works.

    What exactly about "internet marketing" still doesn't work??

Hope that such solid and easy formats like pop and banners would get modified and we all see the second rise of pop

    I agree with some of the answers here. Digital marketing is always changing and you need to be willing to learn and try new things and not be afraid to fail.

    Quality content
    Be active on social media
    Backlink building

    All above are still really important in the digital marketing world in my opinion.

    Also having patience being able to keep putting in the work even if you don't see any results after a few months or even a year.

    hi everyone
    As we know digital marketing is a grown way of advertising today, these innovative digital marketing trends are among the top priorities for most business owners in 2020.
    Programmatic Advertising is a new technology in digital marketing
    Programmatic advertising means using AI to automate ad buying so you can target more specific audiences. Real-time bidding, for example, is a type of programmatic ad buying. This automation is much more efficient and faster, which means higher conversions and lower customer acquisition costs.

    Google makes hundreds of changes to its search algorithms every year. While most changes are minor, they could affect your search ranking. These are some of the SEO trends are as follows:

    1. Voice search: People search how they speak
    2. Featured snippets will continue to dominate search results
    3. More marketers will leverage influencers for SEO
    4. Video will be the new king of content
    5. Content length will determine search rankings
    6. Mobile search will continue to take over

    Just when you think you fully understand SEO, algorithm updates happen. Today's SEO is a holistic process that requires both offline and online marketing strategies to succeed. Invest in SEO as a long-term strategy for lead generation and stay on top of the latest SEO trends to avoid getting left behind.

    Current marketing techniques such as content writing, SEO, and social media will always work to some extent (just as snail mail, telemarketing, and "old school" media) are still integrated in digital marketing.

    With the rapidly growing popularity of voice-controlled devices, however, it is expected that those are are not active in online media, voice search, or voice activation, etc will be at a severe competitive disadvantage.

    Voice-assisted devices compatible with Alexa, Google Home, Siri, etc will soon become ubiquitous, and products, services, and content will be searched and ordered by voice. Even now, podcasts are rapidly approaching popularity as an alternative to written content.

    Content marketing will always be an integral component in digital marketing. People will have more choices in consuming that content than ever before. And people right now are using voice devices for content consumption and to search for contractors, products, and content.

    Digital marketing trends are constantly changing. In 2020, we saw new marketing trends alongside some older ones. The older trends that are still ongoing are:
    1. Chatbots--personal assistance without the personnel.
    2. Voice searches--as more people use digital assistants like Alexa or Siri, SEO leans further towards voice searches, with keywords based on how people talk, not type.
    3. Video marketing--with hosting videos becoming easier and easier, each year sees more successful and ambitious branded videos online. Such as vlogs.

    Now the new ongoing trends in 2020:
    1.Shoppable posts (social commerce) : Social commerce refers to buying products directly through social media posts or ads--you don't need to leave the site or app.
    2. Direct messaging : Through messaging apps like WhatsApp, Viber and Facebook Messenger, or through private messages on social media like Twitter or Instagram, brands are building stronger connections with their customers.
    3. Sentiment analysis: This is an interesting one. Sentiment analysis, or social listening, is the practice of analyzing the reactions of users and customers to a product or service, typically on social media or other places online.
    4. Vlogging : With the ongoing success of YouTube, Instagram Stories and Snapchat, video blogs are more popular than ever. Vloggers speak directly to the viewer, creating a more personal and direct connection.

    Predicting SEO trends for 2020 is not a bad idea but assuming that all other strategies apart from those will become irrelevant can be a huge mistake. Content writing has been and will always be significant and valuable in SEO. Google's algorithm's value real and authentic techniques and they do pay off well if followed through properly.
