Are you curious about what’s in store for the digital landscape in 2024? Our team has some exciting predictions to share! Don’t forget to explore our social media channels for a wealth of tips, tricks, and expert advice on everything related to digital marketing.
1. AR and VR Integration:
Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are set to further revolutionise user experiences. Marketers will explore innovative ways to incorporate AR and VR into their campaigns, from interactive product demonstrations to immersive brand experiences. – Michael Chiu, Head of Ad Strategy
2. Increase in Social Commerce Platforms:
In 2024, social media platforms will enhance their shopping features, making it seamless for users to make purchases without leaving the platform. For instance, we anticipate TikTok introducing a ‘shop now’ function. TikTok continually evolves, providing brands with a unique opportunity to establish a stronger presence and boost sales, all within a single platform. Given TikTok’s focus on video content, it’s likely to make a significant impact in the e-commerce space. – Elayna Pisani, Operations Executive
3. SEO Dominates Social Media:
SEO will take center stage in the world of social media. Research indicates that 40% of young adults (18 – 24 year-olds) now use social media as a search engine. You probably find yourself using TikTok in the same way, harnessing the power of that little search button. The next post on your For You Page won’t be there just because of hashtags; it’ll be there because of the right keywords.
Research from Hootsuite revealed that social media posts heavily optimized for SEO experienced a 30% increase in engagement. This social media trend is expected to continue into 2024, emphasizing the importance of brands investing in their content and copywriting. Brands that prioritize social SEO practices will stand out, demonstrating their commitment to delivering quality content.
That’s why your social media strategy for the coming year should also include comprehensive keyword research. – Emily Lerner, Campaign Manager
4. Authenticity and Realness in Content:
We predict an increasing desire for authenticity and ‘realness’ on social media. For brands, this translates into less polished content, more sharing of real stories, behind-the-scenes glimpses, and the nurturing of passionate and loyal communities. This trend will lead to a surge in User-Generated Content (UGC), especially with micro-influencers who have smaller but highly engaged followings.
This shift is already underway, and we believe it will only gain momentum in 2024. – Hannah Monks, Client Strategy Manager
