Marketing 101–When the Old Tricks Aren’t Working
What many call the “era of instant gratification” in 2020 is forming modern consumers into a picky bunch to please. Getting readers to spend time at your blog, buyers to “pick up an extra” or new leads to give you just one chance is harder to do when your consumers encounter constant requests from other marketers. Being witty and using bright colors are less effective when your competitors are also trying to do the same.
“Mindful marketing” is now leading the discussion tables at marketing agencies, and below are reasons why you should also shift the way you think of your consumer:
- There’s Not Enough Time
With less interest in wasting time, online users now expect to visit websites that first ask them about their “cookie settings” upon the point of browsing a web page. The level of intimacy that the internet establishes forces marketers to go beyond pleasing the creative minds of their leads by, instead, appealing to their real needs. In 2020, it very well could be that consumers don’t have time to be entertained but instead want to be taken seriously.
- Some People Are More Isolated
Natural disasters will inevitably force people to lock themselves into their homes at times, but technology also does an excellent job of keeping people distant. The depth of privacy that wireless technologies allow people to express themselves through results in a consumer that “wants their own space.” The data that marketers collect from their consumers on the web, therefore, enables brands to adjust their marketing to the mindful actions of their leads.
- Definitions are Changing
Wearable devices might never again give you the chance to redefine “intimacy” as defined within your consumers’ lives. The web is thriving as people look for personalization, and as simple as that seems, the use of search engines is continually growing as a result. The consistent trend behind the use of the internet gives businesses a better opportunity to be more personal than other channels of advertisement had allowed.
The technology of television, which sent one ad to millions of people, is substituted for tech that sends 1,000 different ads from one brand that’s targeting 1,000 different personalities.
