Digital Marketing Trends of 2014

Though 2014 is almost over and probably you're thinking that it might be too late for me to share with you, then again this can be a great way for you to find out and compare your marketing campaigns with the current trends. This may also help you plan your 2015 marketing campaign, since we have data from the rising sites.

This video of LGCGMarketing which show case the 2014 Digital Marketing trends is a 1 minute and 52 seconds long video, short but it gives you enough data to plan and compare your marketing campaigns.

In the video, you'll be able to get the best marketing trend that you can use for your business and/or areas that you can totally improve and focus more. From improving your website to your social media accounts, you can totally learn a lot from this video in a short time.



So here are a couple of tips from me to you.

Content Marketing

If you have a site, it's really important these days that you'll add or add more content to update your site. Not just for the sake of the freshness update, but also adding more internal links within your site. Content is also really important when it comes to search engine optimization, and as a SEO specialist it's best to provide and publish the best quality content; not only for your site but also to sites that you're linked with or building links at.

Mobile Marketing

There are a lot of people who do prefer or do check out more often sites via their mobile; since it's more accessible and faster. The best way to update and still within the trend, is that to have a responsive design of your website. Which means that whatever type of gadget - smartphone or tablet - that your visitor use, it automatically change its layout that fits to the users gadget.

Local Marketing

If your offering local services, it's best if you include or do local marketing for your business. I have clients who have made me do this and they have all been more successful and get more traffic from local marketing.

Social Media Marketing

Social Media Marketing is not for all, it's more ideal for businesses who who have something to sell or service to offer within their local area. Like for example, a restaurant or a digital printing business. If you're planning to use Pinterest, Pinterest has a huge market for women (since most of its users are women) but it's ideal if your selling products.

Video Marketing

I've done a couple of video marketing for my clients and even for myself. I usually use YouTube but it's highly advised that you use other video sites.

My Top 8 Social Media Websites

My Top 8 Social Media Websites
A lot of my friends wonder that it seems that it is necessary for me to update my social media accounts and have social media accounts. Do I want to be famous, well-known or do I just want them to be envy at me?

Well, dear friends and readers, I feel like it’s a must update for me and must have for me the social media sites because it’s my only living (instant) proof to the clients who wish to hire me for a job that I do really exist. Updating it with my (almost) everyday life, happenings and events will at least give the impression to my clients that the person they’re contacting do have a life and is alive and do exist.

Another reason is that, well, obviously I do also use this to promote my blog, myself and of course my client’s products and services.

Now, as for my list of social media sites they’re actually just 8, there can be more but then again these social media websites are MY top social media sites. I’m not depending on how much is their Alexa rank or traffic have but it’s basically basing on how many people I “think” and noticed using these sites. So basically, these are my personal list of most popular social media sites for 2014 which are the following:

Facebook

Obviously, the most used and the top social media site is Facebook. A lot of people do use Facebook to stay connected, be connected and be updated with the people who they know and want to get to know. People love their features, functionality but then again they’re having a lot of PAID changes that may make some Facebook users back off.

Though it’s the top social media website today, there’s still room for improvement but still everything that Facebook have now satisfies their users so that will do.

Twitter

I love Twitter, but as I’ve mentioned on a post “How to Use Twitter” I didn’t get it at first why I have to publicly update people with my personal life. But now, obviously I love it. Having more than 10,000 tweets already tells you that!

What I think people love Twitter is that anyone can feel famous, be connected with a total stranger with the same interest and be connected with famous people – having a greater chance to get the attention of the celebrity that you love.

LinkedIn

As a professional SEO specialist, I love joining social media sites like these. You’ll be able to find fellow professionals, professionals that are more likely have the same interest and field with you.

What I love with this site is that there are also people from companies who are most likely from the HR who’ll be able to find you and can contact you for a great opportunity, which had happened to me a couple of times. So for job seekers or for people who are open for a greener field, join in!

Instagram

Who doesn’t love Instagram? I think everyone love taking photos and be a photographer of their own and share it with everyone. One great thing about this is that you’ll be able to connect your Instagram to your other social media sites especially your Flickr account. Updating your 6 social media account from one social media site.

Tumblr

I love blogging, I love sharing. Tumblr is another social media site where you could get the chance to blog at the same time. But my problem with Tumblr is that I can’t (or just don’t know) how to monetize it using ads. But then again, I’m still using it and connected with my Instagram account.

Google Plus

You might wonder why I put it on the 6th spot, but the thing is I think it’s not that popular. Though it’s owned by Google, the thing is we’re so used of Facebook that most of us may prefer Facebook. But don’t get me wrong, I love Google Plus including their functions and security and their invites (on groups) which is not on Facebook.

Pinterest

What I love about Pinterest is that their boards, totally unique from other social media sites which I think the reason why there are a lot of people trying to copy their platform. Yes, there are a lot of similar sites existing that is surely and obviously a copy of the design of Pinterest.

What I like about Pinterest is that if I want a photo, I can just go there. I mean photos and collections that I just want to laugh at and share.

FourSquare

Badges! That’s what I love about FourSquare. As a travel blogger, it’s really great that I’ll be able to share to everyone where I was at and be able to share some tips via FourSquare.

I think it’s important for a social media website to create a mobile version and/or an app. Especially these days that a lot of people are using their smartphones and prefer to work on their smartphone or tab than their desktops. So making it easier for the users to use and access the site can surely help you be one of the top social media sites for the upcoming years.
