What Internet marketing technologies will be successful in 2018?

Internet marketing continues to evolve rapidly and, as it did before, borrows a share of the market from traditional advertising methods. It’s not surprising, because 2017 can be characterized by a lot of interesting developments in the digital marketing sector, including improvements in video content and voice search, as well as extensive use of artificial intelligence.

To stay in trend, it is necessary to both develop new promotion strategies and technologies and adapt the existing strategies as much as possible. And 2018 is not far off. So what do we expect in the online marketing environment?

Evolution of video content

  • Live broadcasts. Live broadcasts will be a huge thing in 2018. It’s been repeatedly confirmed that such videos are viewed several times more often than previously recorded ones. And the increase of shooting time range and new functions appearing on such social media platforms as Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat confirm this statement.
  • Selling commercials. Explainers are a video clip format, where a product or service are described quickly and simply. This allows a person to see the product in action. So, for example, if the online store profile contains not only the usual text characteristic of the product, but also a video, the user won’t read the text.
  • Mobile video advertising. According to the Record, next year’s mobile advertising expenses will reach $18 billion. This means that the number of ad videos viewed on smartphones and tablets will increase by 25%.
