1.Content Marketing


Target Market

Content marketing is a strategic pathway that primarily focuses on a set audience to construct or elevate customer behavior. Content marketing uses social media as the stamina to digital marketing. By using a distribution system, you're certain that the information you're providing is going out to a targeted audience. Content marketing is an important way of communicating with prospective customers by delivering content that makes the consumer more knowledgeable.

2. Using Phones for Social Media and Payments


New mobile phones are providing larger screens for customers. A recent study by mobileinsurance.com  shows that an average person spends 90 minutes a day on their phone. This amounts to 23 days per year and 3.9 years in an average person's lifetime. So, you can conclude that focusing on mobile social media this year will be very important for digital marketing companies.


mobile payments

Major companies like PayPal and Apple are about to change the game by having mobile payment features in social media apps such as Facebook and Twitter. The only thing need is a credit or debit card. The app will include an auto-fill feature that will gather all your information from your card and store it into an account. Now, you'll be able to pay or send money through the app internationally.  Payment Features in social media will be rising gradually this year.
