Over the past years, the way a digital marketing strategy is planned, created, and executed has changed and is continuing to evolve so. This creates a growing challenge for both business owners and marketers to keep up with the evolving trends and find the best way to incorporate them into their overall marketing plan.

While adopting all the latest shifts and trends is not necessarily a must to be successful in digital marketing, failing to acknowledge them – or not understanding why they arise – can pose a real threat on how your business compete in the digital space. Content marketing, for instance, has been through a lot of changes for the last recent years – and many of the past trends in this landscape are now a staple these days – such as video content, social media content, and branded content.

Digital marketing is an ongoing activity that you must update and improve from time to time to ensure higher success rate. Outside content marketing, there are other areas of digital marketing where you need to keep up with the trends and tweak every now and then, e.g., SEO, email marketing, social media, mobile advertising, etc.

If you implemented any of these strategies in 2017, evaluate what worked and what didn’t so you can develop an even more effective strategy for 2018. For instance, if your content and website structure were only optimized for desktop viewing last year, strive to make all of them mobile-friendly this year.

This is vital as more and more people use their mobile devices to search for products and services, and not having a mobile-optimized website can mean wasted marketing budget, and that your business is losing opportunities to grow.
