Be it Siri or Google, voice search is increasingly gaining popularity. It is a huge factor, now, in the way digital marketing content is being designed.
With AI becoming more intelligent it is also important to understand that voice searches by the user need not be very specific. For example, the user may search “I want to eat pizza” instead of saying “Find a pizza place near me”. Here the location has not been specified.
Voice search also makes the user experience interactive. So, we will see a rise in paid voice search advertising and voice search based shopping, where the user can directly shop by voice commands on a smart device.
Influencer marketing has always been used since the rise of social media marketing. But the more popular influencers have slowly become extremely expensive. Some big influencers have gained notoriety, just pushing brands for sponsorships, which has caused them to lose faith of their followers.
Here is where micro-influencers come in. They are medium-sized influencers who have a niche and dedicated following, big enough to have an impact in their area but small enough to have a personal connect with their followers. In addition, they are less expensive and have been seen to have higher engagement than big influencers.

3. Niche Social Media Marketing
While Facebook and Twitter are likely to remain the leading platforms for social media marketing, both are seeing a plateau in growth. Savvy marketers are gradually building their brands on alternative and niche social media channels, that are likely to pay-off in a few years. Especially for targeting under-30 users, Snapchat, Reddit, Pinterest and Instagram have become preferred channels. These work particularly well if you have a niche brand and not enough resources. This could be one of the biggest digital marketing trends in 2020.
4. Direct Messaging
Personalization is in vogue and digital marketing must get with-it. DMs connects with customers for sales assistance or customer service. To go a step further, DMs provides exclusive deals or coupons. In this era of instant gratification, DMs are an excellent option to connect with the customer instantaneously. It also helps that almost all social media platforms have built-in messengers. This is a simple and effective tool to include in your digital marketing services.
5. Programmatic Advertising
Optimizing your online ads for placement, targeting and performance can be a challenging task, but not one that can be ignored. What better than leaving this work to a bot!
