What Will The New Year Of 2013 Bring With Digital Marketing?

Latest Advertising Formats

Understand your customer, look at how they purchase your products or services and gain as much information as possible about related interests. Once you know where your customers are looking then you can start to add pre-roll video adverts, piggy backed advertising and in-image adverts that target the right consumers at the right time and avoids banner-blindness and irrelevant advertising.

Location Features

If you use social media then you’ve probably seen Path, and Foursquare links and comments from your online friends. These location features could benefit from a whole article in our newsletter dedicating to them, however, in brief, you “claim” the location of your business using a simple set up and GPS positioning, list your business and from then on images, links, advertising and customer reviews will then appear on everyone’s social networks promoting your business to a huge range of customers and their friends.

User Generated Content

Creating a network of relevant, interested customers used to be a challenge, finding people, getting their contact information and knowing how to target them, however, that has all started changing with the advent of social media. By checking what users are sharing about your business and looking at known customers social feeds you can target marketing information and generally interesting information to the right people and ensure that your network of customers and potential customers is told about everything you can promote.

Format For A Specific Device

There are now a huge variety of platforms and devices a consumer can use to access online information and marketing details. Mobile telephones of many different types, tablets, PCs and laptops are here to stay and we can expect new devices to be added in the future. Don’t just use the same display format for each, but think about the specifics for each platform and encourage the consumer to interact with your marketing on a device specific basis.
