Cheers,

What we have searched in 2014 is one of the questions you might ask yourself as we have already landed in 2015. Here is the fantastic way on how Google wants to tell us:

This year I wanted to do something different and more authentic so I’ve decided not to read any article about top social media trends for 2015 and write mine from scratch. Sometimes I feel we should follow more our intuition… This is what I truly think:

Social media trends in 2015

Social media trends in 2015

1- From Public to Private social networks.

Whatsapp and similar apps become the boss! People got sick of sharing all their lives. We don’t want to be celebrities anymore as it has broken already to many relationships. This is not cool anymore, we got overwhelmed with stupid content and it’s time to kill the “social ego nightmare” and the “social insecurity sickness“.

2- Uberisation of everything.

It started with the Taxis, well previously with the holidays homes and it will go much further. We will see Uber for eCommerce, beauty services, pizza delivery, etc.

3- One of the big platforms drowns

I’m not saying which one but I feel it will be Twitter, Facebook or YouTube :-)… Or maybe, Google+, Vine, Pinterest?

4- Every social media follows Facebook PAID TO EARNED approach.

Facebook decreased the organic reach down to 0.something :-) and all the rest will follow to push the paid option.
Twitter has started already even though they claim to offer 30% of organic reach.
Pinterest has recently announced the paid option is open to everyone.
The rest will just follow…


5- Lead generation becomes the key request.

After understanding that community size (number of fans, followers, etc.) doesn’t matter anymore because you only reach less than 1% through your content and when you promote a post it’s targeted by interest and not by fans; brands will get back to the basics and request for leads (no fans)

6- Platform agnostic Creativity reborn…

Do you remember that time when we talked about Viral and Buzz marketing? Those years were truly amazing as creativity was at the center of every action. I feel social media has killed that a bit over these 4-5 years. Everybody has just been worried about following what the platforms allow you to do and strategies were too channel focused. Now it’s time for platform agnostic creativity that goes beyond the channel to truly attract the consumer and build a fully integrated experience.

2015 is going to be amazing because finally, social media and digital marketing will leave the Comfort Zone to challenge themselves again. We all have been resting over 2014… Wake up because 2015 will truly challenge those who call themselves social media or digital experts…

This year, instead of compiling the best Christmas campaigns of 2014, I wanted to just post a little message: Follow the sun and what your heart says!

Everybody is talking about branded content and social currency but sometimes I wonder if we are truly right or we are just ending calling everything the same.

I was surfing on Facebook the other day and this piece of content got my attention. Actually, the visual is a Rolex but it wasn’t released by a brand from its Facebook page as we usually see. Instead it was posted by a user to make a funny joke while saying happy birthday to a friend. Look at it! It’s brilliant!

Branded content is not about a brand creating content and pushing out to people potentially interested as Facebook’s new strategy seems to proclaim. I believe more in brand creating pieces of content worth sharing that are used by people to spread the word. Virality, earned content, buzz and all these words I used to fall in love with should leverage on the users as a key channel to drive reach and engagement.

What do you think? Should we rethink what we are doing on Facebook? Is this example of Rolex a smart strategy or pure coincidence?

Coming up with relevant content both for the audience and Google is not always easy. For this reason, I brought you this infographic that proposes 11 tips on how to make your blog posts search-engine-friendly.

 

– Use SEO-friendly URL extensions.
– Keep title tag under 55 characters.
– Use visual media (images, videos and gifs)
– Link to authority websites in your industry.
– Improve loading speed.
– Optimize your page for social media sharing.
– Use responsive design to adapt to different mobile devices.
