Top 6 eCommerce and Digital Marketing Trends
“Sell less; make more.”
Businesses are targeting means and ways of finding that same voice that speaks to them honestly. It’s an issue of sifting through junk and finding what works for you and doesn’t. This will be possible thanks to sufficient information via the internet, tablets, smartphones, and TV. Therefore, businesses must take on this challenge and position themselves accordingly to avoid being swept away by this wave. The more time a company takes to push its product, the less time it’ll have to show passion for its customers and products. In effect, customers will also spend less time returning the favor. Technology will impact companies’ locating customers and champions while avoiding pushy sales and wasted advertising dollars.
Top eCommerce and Digital Marketing Trends
The number of screen gadgets and devices in the market increases each day. For instance, people watch movies from their laptops, text from their tablets, and tweet from their tablets or smartphones simultaneously. In the same way, advertisers are expected to adopt different forms of advertisements for each screen. Ads for wearable technology like Smartwatch and Google Glass will need to adapt and customize their products for HUD (heads-up display) and smaller screens.
More people are expected to do online shopping directly from their phones. Retail locations will also employ offline/online POS systems. Marketers will also attempt to exploit the tapping and swiping motions we are familiar with. There may no longer be the need for cash registers when making in-store transactions, and there will be fewer keyboards.
Marrying Coding & Copy-writing
The success of eCommerce and digital marketing will largely depend on your ability to write and write well and in different versions and tones. Therefore, writers must learn responsive content development and interaction design to craft content that resonates well across many screen dimensions and platforms. Conversely, web developers will also need to incorporate content developers beforehand and work for hand in hand with other content marketing sides.
Mobile eCommerce and Digital Marketing Attribution
Digital marketers will realize they can gain more attribution and credit from ads clicked via a tablet, a smartphone, or a mobile device. In addition, the age when customers needed to get home earlier to catch advertised products is long gone. Instead, they need to tap ads they find meaningful from their mobile devices. In short, most eCommerce and digital marketers will find a competitive advantage in mobile eCommerce and digital marketing advertising.
Multi-Dimensional Sharing Networks
There is a likelihood of a drop in the number of users for sites that have restrictions in one way or another, such as file sharing. Social media platforms will become more competitive in creating integrated, comprehensive, and aesthetically pleasing formats for their users. Also, some significant social networks are likely to decline in popularity as others become stronger. For instance, Google+ may significantly improve since it allows users to post thoughts, documents, and images and carry out group chats.
Corporations Getting More Personal
Finally, corporations will become your best friends or someone you already know and value. Marketing campaigns will include more home videos like advertisements. The copy will lose meaning and seem less professional. Transparency or its illusion, coupled with simplicity, will rule the day as far as eCommerce and digital marketing strategies for 2015 are concerned.
