With the internet’s massive impact on marketing campaigns, it is crucial for marketers to ensure they get there point across in the most effective, exciting and successful way possible.
But, making marketing campaigns appealing to the public has become more and more difficult, as individuals give just a couple seconds to campaigns. Even an email campaign is considered to have done well if only 25% of respondents click on it.
So, what should we as marketers do to improve our language and gain more interest?
Here are some tips we’ve learned;

By including ‘action’ language into your campaign, consumers will feel more compelled and interested to check out your organisation. Using words that are descriptive, positioning yet still emotional are very important for this step.

Instagram, the most popular app with over 800 million monthly active users has launched a new feature to their app – the shoppable tags.
These tags will benefit brands before consumers but are set to provide both with a fun and interesting shopping experience.
The tags that can be added by brands will give consumers a quicker way to shop, boosting sales and reducing obstacles. It will also allow businesses to reform their engaging content into sales, with just the click of a button.

The Shopify tool will be available to business accounts, however, influencers will also be able to utilise the feature as they present brands with another route to support their shoppable tags.
The demand for content will presumably rise as brands will maximise this opportunity to ensure consumers consistently see their content, and with Instagram’s considerable reach, we can expect a large shift in e-commerce.

Amidst all the drama surrounding Facebook’s leak of 50 million users’ data to Cambridge Analytica, we have learned something very important that all marketers should be aware of.
“It should raise their awareness of obligations to enforce their policies by monitoring what clients actually do with data they provide,”
David Raab, Principal of Marketing Technology House, said.
But, Facebook was not the first to allow a data leak to happen. This has happened to a few companies and it raises that question as to why brands use data to hyper-target their consumers?

Yes, it is easier, but it also discriminates users by their genders and cultures, and we as marketers and consumers need to start utilising the data we get and add value to it – as problems like this are just fraudulent behaviour and customers are going to regress and not use our platforms.
Facebook has already seen the massive consequences of their actions as their value has dropped by US 30 billion dollars and about 6% in the Stock Market.
