What are the top digital marketing trends in 2022?
While the health crisis has impacted companies of all sizes and in all sectors of activity, marketing professionals have had to adapt and invent innovative strategies in order to meet the needs of their customers. If webmarketing is a sector that is constantly evolving, future talents who wish to orient themselves, retrain or add a digital brick within their professional career, must today be trained in the 2 major trends that are currently emerging: a good customer knowledge and data management.
” The announced disappearance of third-party cookies, a more aggressive CNIL policy on GDPR compliance, a necessary relationship of trust between brands and their customers are all factors that will promote the collection of zero and first party data, as well as the use of specialized software to take advantage of it (marketing automation, CRM, Customer Data Platform, etc.) “, analyzes Franck Guillerot, educational manager at emlyon. To evolve in digital marketing, you must therefore master acquisition techniques, in order to be able to generate leads through inbound and outbound marketing strategies, while knowing how to analyze, use and protect data. , or even to manipulate machine learning algorithms.
Marketing levers at the service of the customer experience
Whatever your job or your specialization in digital marketing, enhancing the customer experience is essential. ” The goal of any brand is to make its customers satisfied and successful. Improving the customer experience means giving yourself the means to achieve your objective. Each strategy does not involve the same organization, nor the same processes or tools. For example, a B2B company with a long and complex purchase cycle will base its strategy on pipeline marketing (embedding, relationship marketing and nurturing, scoring, commercial relationship), while a structure specializing in e-commerce with a shorter purchase cycle will focus on transactional marketing (acquisition, conversion, loyalty). »
Email, still an indispensable channel
Among the levers of digital marketing, email is still a resistance figure. ” If we assume that zero-party data, which is provided voluntarily by prospects and customers in the context of online and offline interactions, has become indispensable in both B2B and B2C, then email remains an essential channel. “While other means of activation will be effective for your webmarketing strategies (SMS, push, chatbot, social messaging, etc.), Franck Guillerot assures us: ” email remains important to engage prospects and customers in a relationship of trust, provided that it is set up in a very targeted way, at the right time and with the right content “.
The fields of application of social marketing
Ideal for promoting and sharing a service or product, social marketing makes it possible to reach an audience that should not be overlooked, especially for young targets. ” These communication channels are essential to engage your audience during the purchase journey “, emphasizes the head of education. Same observation for Mounia Bouanane, participant who took the digital marketing certificate at emlyon business school and marketing communication manager for Manitowoc Crane Group France. She explains : ” I use social networks for the launches of our new machines, which is a fairly innovative concept in the construction industry. In particular, I was the first to announce the new Potain crane to the general public via a live on youtube “.
Social marketing trends to watch in 2022:

The specifics of mobile marketing
Another essential lever, mobile marketing is transforming consumer interactions with brands. ” It is a multi-channel strategy which aims to reach a target audience, users of smartphones, tablets and/or other mobile devices, via sites, emails, SMS and MMS, social networks and applications. », continues Franck Guillerot. The pedagogical supervisor recommends following the instant apps : “ they no longer require downloading and have a more virtuous design in terms of ecology and respect for privacy “.
