Marketing is not an easy task. It requires resources such as man power, money and time. Online marketing has proved its worth within a short period of time. Today, almost all business companies use the help of digital marketing methods, to boost their productivity. Building a good reputation and maintaining it, has never been easier. However, a question still arises when we talk about online marketing. What lies ahead, and what is the future of online marketing?
There is a famous quote – “change is the only thing that does not change”. But today, in our modern world, the rate of change is in constant acceleration. The speed in which change is happening has changed. This is why we have to do a lot of homework before creating and implementing marketing strategies. You cannot use the same ideas you have been using from the beginning. For example, 5 or 6 years ago, people mainly used computers to browse the internet. Today, only a handful of people use personal computers for browsing purposes. The Smartphone revolution changed the perspective of business owners and online marketing experts. Today, web sites are dedicating lion share of their time and thought to make their product more compatible with smart phones. So, future of online marketing lies in mobile friendly advertisements.
One thing you can say about the future with absolute confidence is that virtual reality is going to be the next big thing in town. Digital marketing experts are still analyzing how to use the 3d virtual reality platform for product promotions effectively. Conventional 3d contents cannot attract people like before. A different strategy will be creating simple and engaging VR videos and games with product placements and advertisements.
Content is still the king in every marketing method and it will continue to be. Today, we are only creating ads for different groups of people. Same technique is used, or the same content is used for a certain group of target audience. This will soon change. A new strategy will come, which will carefully craft ads for each and every individual. Each and everyone will be analyzed thoroughly, and their behavior online will be used to prepare individual marketing strategies. New and unpredictable methods of communication will be developed in near future. Only a firm that is capable of analyzing and learning new trend constantly will be able to become a master strategist.
The world is changing; now, it is our time to change.
