Measure Engagement & Interaction
Reach and engagement of content is a good way to measure the success of your marketing campaigns. Measuring purchases based on content is obviously a good indicator of the success of your campaigns. However, measuring how far your content reaches, how many new people see it, how many people like it and interact with it is a great measurement of your visibility and brand recognition.
If people don’t know you are there, you will never find new customers. Measure your campaigns reach and interaction and build on it to expand your audience even further.
Incorporate Video & Audio Content
Using videos and podcasts are a popular way to reach an audience. In fact, Half of all 18-to 34-year-old YouTube subscribers would drop what they are doing to watch a video by their favorite creator and 40% of Millennials trust videos more than other content.
32% of the population tunes into a podcast at least once a month. Podcasts are an excellent way to build a better relationship with your audience and create trust with the brand represented.
Integrate Artificial Intelligence & Chatbots
It is predicted that chatbots will be used first to place an order, anything from pizza to a hotel room. Chatbots enable users to do this without downloading an app. According to a study out of LivePerson, only 19% of the 5,000 people surveyed had a negative perception of chatbots. 33% had a positive view.
Chatbots could mean the difference between closing a sale or losing a consumer to a service with a chatbot, most especially for food delivery.
