What digital marketing strategies should we review?
As I approach mid-2021, I believe it is important for all businesses to review how they are using the latest marketing practices so that they can implement new products using the 70:20:10 marketing focus rule. Google digital marketing evangelist Avinash Kaushik explained the benefits of this mindset:
70% of the time, we will focus on the things we know are the most focused on our business. 20% is where we try to push boundaries. You are entering anonymity. And the last 10% is a really crazy test. Trying to figure out how to do the wrong thing will fail us more than we will ever succeed in. But with all success, you build a competitive advantage.
Truth be told, at the highest level, the trend in all digital marketing strategies is the same year after year – with great interest in search, social, and email marketing, as well as new web design and content marketing strategies to engage and transform our audience. Traditionally, new technologies are drivers of digital marketing styles including changes in:
Digital Platforms: New inventions from FAMGA businesses Facebook Inc. (FB), Apple Inc. (AAPL), Microsoft Corp (MSFT), Google (GOOG), and Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN)
Match Vendors: Mainly, large marketing cloud players with large R&D budgets including Salesforce, Oracle, Hub Spot, and companies with large user-targeted SMEs like Mail chimp
Private-level organizations: Including the World Wide Web Consortium, or W3C— Tim Berners-Lee co-founder and current leader; Living Standard by Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group, or WHATWG and Internet Engineering Task Force, or IETF.
The styles are usually independent of the economy, but this is not the case this year. Of course, the biggest difference affecting changes in market investment in 2021 stems from the risk posed by COVID-19 worldwide.
Digital marketing styles by 2021
Although there have been winners in some areas where demand has increased or increased, many have fallen. No matter the industry, less expensive or less expensive growth methods are more important than ever. This probably explains why our research shows that the AI-based strategies I will build throughout this article are less popular.
Meanwhile, the latest Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) forecasts, March 2021, show a slight return to pre-epidemic GDP and employment. The forecast, which was informed by the data, was initially very bad in November 2020, but it should not be a response to the scale of the epidemic. There is no doubt that well-managed digital marketing will be the key to many businesses looking to win more customers in the coming months.

Recent digital marketing cycles of hype technology
Across all digital platforms and cloud marketing services, Gartner’s trends are well documented in their digital marketing cycles that I summarize every year. Here are the latest views from Gartner’s digital hype cycle.

Marketing Hubs (clouds) and flexible emails are close to widespread acceptance. Many of the techniques in this article already exist if you use a cloud with marketing capabilities.
There are newer start-ups than in previous years since interest in starting a fraction of the advertising curve is small, suggesting that few new technologies are emerging. Indeed, I am convinced that the visual search appeared earlier here. This suggests to me that the maturity of the tools has been achieved and that new strategies will truly be unique in the future. This is promoted by our Digital Marketing Toolkit (free download), which identifies 30 categories of marketing technology.
