The digital marketing industry is in an era of constant change. What may have worked for you six months ago no longer works today. Keeping up with the Joneses when it comes to marketing may seem like an impossible task, but if you're extremely passionate (like the team at Marketing Eye) you incorporate market research into your everyday routine. Below is a list of 3 digital marketing trends we feel will disrupt the digital marketing industry in 2019.
No, we aren’t talking about potato chips we are talking about creating content that says more with less (Think Visual). In the early 2000s, the average attention span was around 12%. Now in 2018, the average attention span is less than a goldfish at a whopping 6%. A lot of this has to do with the amount of content that is being pushed to us every single day. Did you know: The average American in a single day consumes more than 100,000 words of information? WOW! No wonder our attention spans are so short. As a marketer, you need to start thinking differently about the content you produce. Words are great, but they aren’t going capture the attention as well as a picture or 30-second video would. Challenge yourself to say more without saying anything at all. Need inspiration? Think Nike’s Colin Kaepernick Ad it says a lot with a little- intense visuals and a powerful caption. BOOM.
