Popular Trends Arising in 2023
Authenticity – the days of over filters and fake on instagram are closing out. Audiences can tell when a influencer is just “selling” and that won’t help your sales at all. Finding influencers and ambassadors to work with because they love your product will come off way more authentic, therefore in return a higher chance of genuine sales (and community).
Short Videos and Tiktoks - This is moreso to watch out for the work your influencers and ambassadors are putting in. If you see they’re not putting in the work to follow trends and in return not gaining any momentum for your product, you’ll know if the influencer is doing the right homework and putting in the necessary effort to promote your brand.
Micro Influencers - this goes back to authenticity. Audiences are starting to feel like the big ones just do It for the money and it’s not as authentic anymore. This is where micro influencers come in handy and sometimes for a more affordable cost and more effective results.
Social Shops – get your Insta and Fb shop rolling! The amount of users on socials, having your products right there and then where they can purchase right off your social profile is less cumbersome for the consumer, which means fewer opportunities for them to change their mind (or get distracted)!
Set aside the time to sit down and assess your financial and business growth plans for next year. Write down the niches that apply to your company and or niches you’d like to be involved in, the influencers you'd like to work with if you’re heading that route and map up some leads already to send off proposals to while we are still in Q1!
