What are the Recent Trends in Digital Marketing That are Likely to Prove Important in 2012?
In case you have just finished planning on the latest iPhone application that your professionals will develop, take a break! There is much more than iPhone applications that will dominate the market in 2012, and you need to use a multi-channel approach rather than restrict your investments for only one or two of the world's best platforms. Likewise, in digital marketing, you need to keep close track of the trends that are being expected to dominate in 2012, and use a multi-channel approach for best returns. Here is a quick look at those recent trends in digital marketing that are expected to fuel the success of small businesses in 2012.
Location-specific Mobile Marketing: The cloud has officially arrived and the race has started to grab as much space as possible in the Box. The main aim is to reach out to web traffic placed within a certain geographical location. A great deal of innovation is going on right now, with businesses and marketing experts trying to establish a balance between their investments in online and offline marketing. And cloud services are all set to rule the scene for at least the next five years. Securing your cloud presence is important and requires specialized services of providers of online security solutions.
Online and Offline marketing: Most marketing experts are aware that even at the close of 2011, most buyers have exhibited a trend that shows how careful they have become even while making small purchases. Most buyers have run a quick search of what they want to buy over the web, and then gone for physical purchase of the goods or services. This shows that small businesses have to balance their investments in both online and offline marketing. According to advertising gurus, both online and offline marketing will merge and almost fifty percent of the purchases will be online activity based.
Social Media Marketing: A run-away success for small businesses in 2011, social media marketing will grow with time. With newer applications and features, these social media websites have made it possible for businesses to target their advertisements to a certain section of users basing on geographical location, age and professions. Businesses therefore, need to optimize their investments on using segmented advertisement features of these social media sites.
With social media sites like Facebook and Twitter getting all the financial back-up that will ensure their growth in the next twenty five years, it is only natural if small businesses depend on these sites for the maximum returns. Make sure you do not get left out in the race to tap these avenues to the maximum level possible with professional help.
