We may be a little late in the New Year’s Resolution game, but when you’re a growing company you tend to get caught up in the hustle and bustle! One thing we never fall short on is keeping up with the trends that help us continue growing!

Reevaluating the Metrics

“Likes” being the measure of success in social media died in 2019 when Instagram rolled out their experiment of hiding like counts from the public. This motivated marketers to dig deeper into actionable metrics– WHY are viewers clicking on the page? What do we want them to DO on our page? When we change the focus from “like” to having a conversation, the quality of engagement from followers might just lead to more conversion in your business!

Tight-Knit Tribes

Building connections with your target audience vs. anyone who will listen is KEY for 2020. When you customize your content for the demographic of people who actually WANT to engage with your business, your sales will flourish. 82% of customers are brand loyal after a single positive experience. Customers who feel strongly about a brand are more likely to recommend your products and services to their friends & family. On the other hand, 33% of customers contemplate changing companies after a negative experience.

Influencers on the rise

When we think of influental people we tend to think of Celebrities. However, the online influencers are under a microscope. Individuals who have a dedicated following on social media of 1,500 to 10,000 are considered to be micro-influencers and are labeled to be experts in their fields. USE THEM! This year consider finding influencers in your industry to attract a new demographic and more traffic to your company. People buy from people they know, like and trust. 83% percent of people say that word-of-mouth inlfuence their purchases.
