We are halfway there, we are going to say goodbye to 2024 in a few months but that leaves us with some more time to ideate, strategize and implement successful campaigns. Almost half of businesses are winging it when it comes to digital marketing, even though they’re doing it! Our research shows this hasn’t changed much in over a decade, suggesting there are major roadblocks for companies to put a plan in place.

The good news? The other half does have a strategy. Ideally, this would be seamlessly woven into the overall marketing plan, but for larger companies, starting with a separate digital strategy can be a good first step. This can help build a strong case for increased digital marketing investment before full integration.

So let us dive into some path breaking and revolutionary digital marketing trends that have been disrupting the monotony and increasing reach. 

Data and Insight

The best digital marketing hinges on setting clear goals and tracking progress. Think dashboards and performance metrics! To get even better, invest in understanding your customers and the marketing tools needed to gather and analyse data. Smart Insights champions a data-driven approach. By leveraging digital analytics and customer research, you can continuously improve your digital marketing maturity.




There has been a rapid increase in personalising content for people by brands.

AI has made personalisation even better through digital marketing. This has enabled every consumer to feel more valued and understood by brands. Each consumer has a customised product experience with the brand. 


Voice Search Optimisation 


This has been a game changer in recent times because of  the rapid popularity of voice activated devices and smart speakers. Brands that adapt their content for voice search will gain a significant edge. It is essential for brands to make innovations and catch up with trends from time to time to keep their existing consumers engaged and to acquire new ones. 


Augmented Reality

Sustainability and Ethical Marketing

Being sustainable or any other ethical stand that the brand takes will always be a positive reflection on the brand. It is important to maintain the stand throughout your digital marketing efforts too. 


Influencer Collaborations 


Consumers absolutely adore a well executed influencer collaboration. It is the best way to establish a relationship with your consumers as a brand. This creates more authentic and impactful digital marketing campaigns that could benefit the brand in the long run.

This is a great way to leverage organic content and make it a direct sale. Engagement has become one of the cornerstones of today’s digital marketing.

Adapting to privacy regulations and focusing on first-party data collection will be essential in maintaining customer trust and compliance.
