Marketing Trends to Keep an Eye on for 2024

Stay tuned with Witmer Group for marketing insight that builds increased ROI.

We have researched several marketing trends making waves for 2024. While it’s impossible to keep up with everything, it is important to stay informed on trends and technologies that are relevant to your business. Let’s take a look at what’s ahead.

Voice Search

8.4 billion -- That’s the estimated number of digital voice assistants (Alexa, Siri or Cortana) that will be active in 2024. That’s more people than on the planet!

This begs the question:  Is text-based SEO taking a back seat to the rise of voice search?

Not exactly, however, brands must broaden their SEO strategy beyond text-based search and integrate a voice search optimization (VSO) game plan built to capture every spoken word and pattern.

From websites to blogs to paid ad campaigns, infusing online content with relevant, long-tail keywords is indispensable to any marketer’s SEO playbook. But today, 90% of consumers believe that voice search is faster and more convenient than text search.

More on that to come.
