While personalized marketing is nothing new, its importance will continue to magnify in 2019 as the biggest of brands are now abundantly focusing on offering personalized products, content, and more. When bigger brands start offering a particular service like personalized content, consumers expect the same from smaller brands too. Moreover, with the availability of data such as consumer behavior, links clicked, purchase history, and more, offering personalized content is now easier than ever.
- Video Marketing
Each day, more than 500 million hours of video content is watched on YouTube. The most popular video sharing platform has more than 1 billion users which is almost 1/3rd of the total internet users.

Moreover, with the availability of valuable and highly accurate metrics, businesses can also track the performance of video marketing.
- Influencer Marketing
With influencer marketing, you are not required to directly market your brand, products or services to an extensive consumer base. You hire influencers such as celebrities or social media stars who market your business through their social channels. As people trust the opinions of other consumers more than what a brand has to say, this word of mouth publicity is quickly gaining grounds.
- Voice Interaction
Verbal interaction is also getting popular with the increased availability of smart devices and virtual assistants. Try to know more about how these devices and assistants conduct online searches and you will see that their working is very different from text-based search. This means that businesses need to optimize their website in a way that it can be found in voice searches too.
