If you were to ask any digital marketing agency what their biggest frustrations were, somewhere near the top there might be something relating to the digital marketing landscape constantly changing. In other words, trying to keep up with the latest trends, updates, software, tools, and tactics, not to mention Google making continual changes to its ranking factors, means you can never rest easy when you are a digital marketer.
Many will argue that they see this as a positive rather than a negative, and we tend to agree. The reason is that it keeps digital marketing vibrant, fresh, and interesting plus it means lazy marketers who are looking for short term fixes, will thankfully fall by the wayside. This leaves professional and dedicated digital marketers to help their clients who appreciate that marketing online is often a long term project and that there are very few shortcuts.
As for digital marketing constantly evolving this means that to have success you must keep up to date with what is happening and what trends are taking hold. That is why we thought it would be worthwhile to highlight 5 of the current trends within digital marketing so that you are not only aware of them, but if you take advantage of them you will have a head start on your competition.
