Top Three Marketing Trends

The first quarter of 2014 has come and gone, taxes have been paid and business owners are gearing up for the summer and beyond. But what are the small business marketing trends that will continue this year?

John Follis, writing in Small Business Trends, says Social Media, Mobile Devices and Online Video will remain hot, even though Social Media has fallen from the top spot to number three.

Social Media has lost some of its luster because it is becoming less attractive for small businesses. In an article last year entitled, “Why Small Businesses Are Losing On Social Media,” Forbes Magazine reported on research showing that no matter how much time small business owners spent on social media, more than 60 percent said they simply were not seeing a return on that investment.

So, while social media isn’t going away and will continue to be an important element of a business marketing plan, it just doesn’t have the attraction it has enjoyed in the past.

That brings us to cellphones, where nearly everyone has one, but not everyone has a smartphone or tablet. But as more people enter the smartphone and tablet market, the smart business owner will utilize responsive web design, meaning the website looks as good on a mobile device as it does on a desktop or laptop.

This rapid expansion of Web video has given birth to new phrases, such as “Explainer video,” a term that didn’t even exist a few years ago, but is now one of the fastest growing Google searches.

It would always be stimulating to learn content material from other writers and observe slightly something from their store.

    First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick
    question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you
    center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    recommendations or tips? Many thanks!
