Our Top 6 Marketing Trends of 2017
Recently, our Chief Results Officer, Amanda, had the opportunity to speak to Lansing Chamber of Commerce members about the top marketing trends for 2017, as part of their partnership with the Lansing Small Business Development Center.
We found that thinking through these trends was really helpful for us, so we wanted to share it with our online audience, too! Check out our top 6 marketing trends below:
1.) Be authentic and show your values.
2.) Live video has exploded.
3.) Data onboarding.
4.) Personalize your marketing.
5.) Build out more multichannel content.
6.) Marketing Automation.
The bottom line: Digital matters more than ever. 70% of people seek out opinions before making purchasing decisions; 57% of people seek out recommendations on social networking sites; and 83% of people trust recommendations from friends and family. Harnessing the power of digital gives you the ability to you turn your customers into your advocates.
