Top Social Media Trends You Need to Know About

Relationships and Connection

After a year of crisis for trust on Social Media in 2018, it’s more important than ever to build trust with your audience. Focus less on your maximum reach and more on generating authentic, quality content that will genuinely engage your target audience.

Stop selling, start communicating; share more behind-the-scenes, story-based content to nurture meaningful relationships.

Success with Paid Ads

Heightened competition on paid social advertisements forces marketers to perfect their strategy. To make the most of your spend and receive a larger ROI:

  • Understand your target audience
  • Define your goals
  • Invest in high-quality content
  • Use insights and analytics to continually improve your Ads

WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, WeChat, QQ, and Skype have nearly 5 billion monthly active users. That’s more users than traditional social networks have worldwide. This trend is changing consumer expectations. To adapt, you should ensure:

  • Enable Facebook Messenger for your Business Page
  • …and set up an instant reply for when you are sent a message
  • Use private messaging or messaging apps to streamline customer service queries
