While the above strategies will form the basis of social media marketing for 2023, there are some important trends that brands need to keep in mind before making social media strategies for the year ahead.
In today’s day and age authenticity and real-time posts are requirements, not expectations. The growing popularity of TikTok and BeReal is a perfect example of this, demonstrating that audiences prefer real, relatable personalities and situations. This social media trend is gradually displacing traditional filtered ‘Instagram’ content.
Engagement is essential for a successful social media strategy. Platforms have enabled content creators and brands to connect with their audiences in novel ways. For instance, the Instagram reaction stickers, the Q&A on Stories and Reels, and the TikTok video stitching feature. These exciting social media tools enable businesses to create organic and genuine interactions with their followers, ensuring they feel heard and valued.
3. Influencer Marketing
Influencer marketing helps with merging the unbeatable voice of influencers with marketing tactics to generate leads and increase reach.
The ideal influencer marketing strategy will include both micro and macro-influencers or will focus solely on smaller influencers. This is because macro-influencers have a large number of followers but are more difficult to interact with, whereas micro-influencers have smaller audiences but a higher rate of engagement and a better return on investment, as long as they are relevant to the industry.
4. Short-form Videos
Reports have made it clear, short-form videos and TikTok videos were one of the most liked and viewed posts of 2022. This trend is very likely to repeat in the coming days. Thus working on it to bring up better entertainment cum advertising videos will be a good call.
5. Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence
The integration of more highly developed virtual reality and artificial intelligence technologies is a sure thing to go for. With this technology, we can target and seek Gen-Z. This is a level between digital and physical, perfection and relatability as well as omnichannel strategy. In short, making amazing possibilities simply possible!
With the amazing possibilities that social media marketing brings up, we all face a situation, wherein we find it difficult to find out which is the right social media strategy for your business
