As 2019 progresses, the digital marketing landscape that encompasses SEO, social media, PPC, content marketing and more is witnessing a dramatic shift – which businesses can no longer ignore. There may have been a time when you could’ve dismissed artificial intelligence or visual search as gimmicks from the latest blockbuster science fiction film, but that time is long gone.
There are many new digital marketing trends and strategies that are evolving in the current high-tech era and businesses now need to use them to succeed in their efforts. The key is to stay on top of the trends and figure out what is the best for your business today. What was worked for you in a previous year may not work this year as new trends continuously keep on emerging.
There’s an assault on the senses; lights violate our vision, crass music erupts in our ears and nothing’s ever new enough. We’re under the influence of mass-saturation in a world of sensory overload. For activation's to have their intended impact, they have to be more than just unique and authentic, they have to resonate with their audience. Innovation offers opportunities for personalization, communication and engagement like no other medium. Creatively applied to your captive audience, your target market can interact with a myriad of key messages – your protagonist is at play. This is engagement; this is the advertising of tomorrow, with your customers today. In addition, there are far reaching benefits of tech-integrated activation's – it can enable business innovation and deliver rich experience analytics, customer intelligence and profiles to demonstrate the efficacy of events and experiences.
Three brief questions the session intends on answering:
How can innovation support cross-cultural campaigns?
How to develop your virtual voice?
Digital should collaborate, not isolate.

While consumers have grown tired of seeing content that appears to be an advertisement from a brand or a corporation, using the human element is a tactic for individuals and corporations to be viewed as being real and relatable without relying on professionally-produced content. With advocacy, think of yourself as the star of your own reality series. The key to telling good stories on social media is less about the platform and more about the story that you're trying to tell. This session will try to demonstrate how you can build a strong network of influencers to be your brand advocates for free. Some marketers tend to underestimate the power of the customer and employee voice as a mean of building brand trust and generating much higher digital engagement with the brand.
