Top Marketing Trends to look for in 2023
There is no doubt that the marketing world operates at lightning speed. In order to succeed in the fast-paced marketing world, maintaining a sense of relevance with your audience is vital to stay ahead of them.
To help businesses build cutting-edge and competitive marketing strategies in 2023, we put together this helpful guide on marketing trends to watch in the new year.
Influencer marketing really picked up steam in 2022, and we predict this trend will keep pace in 2023. Why? 89% of marketers who currently engage with influencer marketing will increase or maintain their investment next year. When marketers collaborate with influencers and industry thought leaders in their industry, they can expand brand awareness and gain fans from the influencer’s own audience.
Can’t afford to hire a celebrity influencer with millions of followers? That’s okay. In fact, more than 56% of marketers who invest in influencer marketing work with micro-influencers (Hubspot).
Micro-influencers are social media promoters with a smaller following (typically thousands to ten of thousands of followers). Although they have fewer followers, their posts often pack more punch due to their higher level of engagement.
Even though it can be tempting to look at follower count when determining if an influencer is right for your brand, remember that true influencer lives in engagement rates.
The short-form video has taken the marketing world by storm, and we predict it will carry over in 2023. A staggering 90% of marketers using short-form video will increase or maintain their investment next year, and 1 in 5 marketers plan to leverage short-form video for the first time in 2023. (Hubspot)
This format aligns well with the fast-paced attention spans of online audiences in a variety of demographics. This is likely why platforms like TikTok and Instagram Reels have gained quick growth and marketing interest.
It’s no coincidence that leveraging social media as a customer service tool trend is emerging around the same time that many social media platforms are expanding their e-commerce capabilities. For this reason, providing customer service on these platforms will become even more crucial in 2023.
