After New Year's Eve, do social media professionals know what to expect? Predicting the future is time to do if not.

There are no magic powers or crystal balls. An in-depth analysis of the evolution of the marketing industry has shown some social media trends that should take center stage in the future.

Are social media professionals prepared?

There is a lot of expectation on the coming year. It's up to each of us to make the new year better.

You can prepare for certain projects in advance. Most major trends have been gaining ground for a while now.

A good social media professional will probably have picked up on some of the trends already. Here, we have put together 8 of them.

1- Influencer Marketing will be normalized

The year when the practice will take root is 2023. The expansion of brand awareness has been helped by this trend.

The strategy is based on the trustworthiness of the people who follow them. It has a good return on investment.

A good quality score is important to your success. Before you involve them in your campaign, make sure to check their engagement rates.

If you don't have the budget for it, you don't need to invest in influencer with millions of followers. The engagement rate for marketers working with micro-influencers is way higher.

If your engagement rate is high, you will live or die by it.

2- Shorter videos

The short-form video is one of the trends that will continue into the future. It's more effective to get to the point.

People use a fast pace online. They want answers as soon as possible. The success of TikTok and Reels was not a result of happenstance. The audience is what they want.

If you want to get your audience's attention, you should focus on the short-form format.

Video continues to be the top content for marketing. They are cheaper to make now.

3- Social media will embrace customer service

Direct messages are used by one in four marketers. The support services which can be found there are growing side-by-side with the e- commerce capacity of social networks.

Customers want to be able to communicate with brands. They already use the platform and having to switch to other channels to reach customer service is no longer necessary.

4- Social responsibility will continue to increase

Companies need to be socially responsible. The internet requires it.

Customers don't just want to fulfill their needs, they want to be associated with brands that are making a difference in the world.

Consumers will engage with you because of your values. There will be a lot of publicity for your brand once you get that.

5- Experiential marketing will come back stronger

Virtual reality and augmented reality are expected to gain prominence in the near future.

The cost of investing in a brand experience has deterred companies from doing so in the past, but virtual reality and augmented reality can be deployed simply and cheaply.

An experience in itself is called a filter.

6- Technology will be central to marketing

Next year's marketing campaigns are expected to include other technologies like augmented and virtual reality.

As you get to know your customers better, the internet of things will give you a lot of leverage.

There are more Internet of Things devices in the world than there are humans. Users follow their daily steps and they are all connected. More data will help improve your marketing campaigns.

7- Inbound marketing will remain relevant

Gaining authority and brand awareness is one of the objectives of a digital marketing campaign.

It may sound repetitive, but inbound marketing and Search Engine Optimization will still be important to businesses that are trying to stay relevant.

The home office has made inbound marketing more efficient. A billboard may not be a good idea anymore. People are not going out as much and brands are having to change to get through to their audience.

A smart way to build online trust is through inbound marketing.

8- Embrace infographic data

Making it easy for customers to reach you is one of the goals of digital marketing. Why not use an Infographic that is netizen friendly?

Millenials are mostly visual. They like videos because of that. They respond favorably to information presented in a visual way. Graphics and drawings will help them understand what you're saying.

Happy New Year!

With a plan, you can head into the future. These trends are based on performance. Keep an eye out for new trends on social media.

We hope this list of trends will be useful for social media professionals. Hire a professional or agency to work on your marketing campaign if you are not. You will not regret it.
