However, don’t forget that you need to ensure you have mobile in mind when it comes to video. Most video views come via mobile devices, with 60% of YouTube users watching videos via mobile devices.
2. The rise of chatbots
It’s time to start thinking about chatbots. They’ve been around for years, but recently they’ve witnessed big AI improvements. More brands than ever before are working on using chatbots for customer support and perfecting a digital marketing strategy that focuses on chatbots. Most chatbots are used for customer service, with over 60% in use for that function. The future of chatbots is looking bright. It’s estimated that 85% of customer interactions will be managed by chatbots by 2020, so now is the time to get involved!
Storytelling came in the form of Snapchat, then Instagram, then Facebook, and now YouTube. All these platforms give you a unique opportunity to tell the story of your brand, business or product. Stories capture the best moments of a day. The temporary nature of a story creates a sense of not wanting to miss out for users who don’t view them before they disappear. They also create a fun way to present video content and allow your customers to connect with your business on a different level. 2018 is sure to be a big year for stories and now is the time to think about stories as an integral part of your social marketing strategy.
These are three key digital marketing tactics that you need to ensure you try this year. It’s not too late, get started today!
