It’s already 2021 and we know how to handle the pandemic crisis. Social media was the top choice for the world’s population in 2020. Who would think of a crisis back at the start of 2020? Lockdowns have shown us that social media marketing is on top of the world again.
New trends have emerged and those trends will lead in 2021. Social brand JayNike created a small list of trends that you should take care of in 2021.
Many consumers are conscious of sustainability growing more and more. Correspondingly, companies should do their part here to create a greener future. Most of the companies in the USA and EU are in favor of companies acting in an environmentally friendly manner.
Many brands are already using more sustainable alternatives in production or packaging material. Customers are now often looking for precisely these providers. This means that sustainability and environmental protection are topics that can serve as distinguishing features.
It’s not a surprise that the cultural shift towards greater diversity also influences purchasing behavior.
Most of the customers may no longer buy from brands that do not place sufficient emphasis on diversity. Companies that openly rely on a high degree of diversity can collect strong bonus points here.
Voice and Visual Search
In 2021, findability will play an even greater role in the search. Particular measures must be taken for the voice or visual search. Because these two trends will also play the most important role in 2021. More and more people are searching through voice-based tools like Alexa.
