The Top Digital Marketing trends in Canada for 2022

Ø  Education Overtakes Hard Sell

Gone are the days when hard selling was enough for a business to do well. Now, consumers are exposed to so many advertisements that they usually ignore many hard-selling ads. As a result, the focus has shifted to educating the customers. So, digital marketers focus on solving a problem for the clients to get their attention or offering new ways to do the same things. For instance, a grocery store can share new recipe ideas with customers that want to retain or attract new customers.

Ø  Short Form Video Content Will Rule

Thanks to TikTok, the popularity of short-form video content is exploding now. Most marketers are already investing heavily in video content and intend to keep doing it in the future. About 33% of business owners will invest in this form of marketing in 2022. There are many reasons why adopting short-form videos can be useful for businesses. One of the key reasons is that it allows businesses to inject more personality into their marketing. Another reason is that these videos are easy to record and simple to consume. So, they don't take a lot of time to create or view.

Ø  Mobile Advertising Will Rise

Mobile advertising in Canada reached $7.29 billion in 2020, and it is expected to reach a few billion more by the end of this year. Mobile advertising is essential for businesses targeting a wide range of audiences as almost everyone owns a mobile. Canada is also one of the countries with the largest share globally, as about 75% of total ad spending was directed towards mobile.

Ø  Search Advertising Will Increase

Search advertising has been a leading advertisement format in Canada in the last few years. The amount of money spent on search advertising will likely grow in 2021. The highest increase in search advertising will likely happen in video advertising as videos are getting more popular than ever.
