Social Media Expected To Be A Top Channel For Purchase

Business owners are increasingly turning to social media for advertising their products so that they can turn viewers into potential customers. So social media is definitely a trend to look for in 2021!

SEO for Voice Search

As technologies are evolving and making it more convenient to search by voice, people are becoming more dependent on it. They prefer using Voice search rather than typing huge texts in search engines. This is why Voice search is considered the next frontier of SEO. 

SEO experts came across different results that voice searches produce than text searches. However, everyone expects 2021 to kick off a Gold Rush to crack the code of SEO for voice search to grasp more of that organic market share.

SEO for Image Search

All thanks to Google Lens (Google’s groundbreaking image-recognition AI algorithm), search engine marketing is shifting into the domain of pictures and videos. No more domain of words, it’s time for pictures and videos to rule!

Google Reverse-Image Search allows people to obtain a variety of contexts from the image they use to search. Whenever people are confused or have no idea about any image, they can easily upload it in google reverse image search and obtain relevant contexts.

For instance, they can take a picture of a plant and enter the image as a search to obtain whether the plant is poisonous. 

Easy-to-consume Content

The year 2020 witnessed people leaning on easy-to-consume content (things like podcasts or newsletters) that can be consumed on-the-go or that is sent directly in subscriber’s inboxes.

A study shows 55% of Americans now listen to podcasts, while newsletter mentions were up 14% during the lockdown. 

Business owners are spending more on podcasts too, which is becoming a trend and a sure hint to their continued success in 2021. 

Besides, convenient and readily-available content like podcasts and newsletters will help brands connect more deeply with customers and provide a more intimate way to stay in touch.

Artificial Intelligence

2020 may be the year that people might wake up to the dominance of AI (artificial intelligence). It’s sure to be the future – and it’s already taking over many simple jobs.

For example, just a year ago, advertisement on Facebook was a long and drawn-out trial and error method that took us weeks to perfect. But with their newest AI-driven Campaign Budget Optimization automatically detects what works and what does not, and intelligently allocates your money to the profitable campaigns.

Artificial intelligence will soon be the driving force behind the success of businesses.
