3. Shoppable Links
Let’s be honest, no one wants to be redirected a million times when they’re online shopping, and they definitely don’t want to lose their place on a website while multi-tasking. How do you overcome these challenges by easily moving the customer to where they need to go?
Shoppable links – shoppable links allow consumers to remain where they are and make a purchase. Instagram and Facebook’s shoppable link features have completely changed the face of online shopping – use these features to your business’ advantage!
4. Leveraging Content Creators as Brand Ambassadors
USE YOUR RESOURCES! USE YOUR RESOURCES! USE… YOUR… RESOURCES!
If you would like to become a leader within your industry of business this summer – leverage the audience of a content creator to be a brand ambassador for your business. From podcasts, to vlogs, and even a simple social media post, content creators can easily take your awareness to another level without spending tireless hours on keyword searches and relying on marketing content alone.
Consumers who may be too busy to watch videos or read a ton of content in order to get to know who you are and what you have to offer rely on podcasts to be entertained or gain insight.
With a 25% increase in podcasts listeners from 2020 to 2021 this audience is slated to increase even more by the end of 2022. Whether it’s a short interview with a well-known podcaster in your industry or starting your own – grab a mic and start talking to the audience you’ve been missing out on.
As we continue to keep a close watch on emerging trends throughout the year – you can minimize your list of missed opportunities by keeping your business in line with these trends. You can also maximize your company awareness and conversion rate by implementing these things into your marketing strategy.
