In 2023, industry experts say that technology, coupled with in person experiences will be the clear leaders. Channeling creativity through technology, and using it to connect with people in real time is what is going to help brands reach their goals.

Creating credible, safe modes to sell online is where the money is, as they say. Through social commerce, it is easy for companies to make quick conversions. People are more likely to buy online than in person.  Technology has made these transactions easier! 

2.Meme Marketing –

Over the last year, we have seen big brands jump on the train of creating and sharing trending memes. Meme marketing has becoming an integral part of brand communication as it relates majorly with the younger generation, and it will only evolve in 2023. According to Piali Dasgupta, Senior Vice President – Marketing, Columbia Pacific Communities. 
“So brands should be authentic and have the right intent. To win over Gen z customers, companies need to believe in doing good for the earth instead of just chasing profits. Also, don’t be preachy. That never sits well with the under-25 audience.” 

3.Augmented Reality Experiences –

The pandemic enabled a surge in a person’s online presence and E – commerce. This has made it even more important for brands to add value for in – store experiences. It’s all about encouraging physical footfall alongside online shopping. Augmented reality (AR) and other immersive experiences have become key to achieving this. And the rise in use of AR technology means consumer demand for immersive experiences will become even more mainstream in 2023. 

4.Snackable, Short form videos –

It is very common for us to scroll through our reels on Instagram and Shorts on Youtube now! Many creators are innovating with shorter form, ‘snackable’ content to meet the needs of these viewers. And they’re seeing immense success. 
Learn from the creators leading the way. These individuals are blazing the trail, creating fresh ways to approach each video format to authentically connect with their audiences. It’s important to leverage storytelling best practices to create highly engaging short-form video content. For example, videos should jump straight into the action. With only 10 to 60 seconds of available ad time, there’s no need to set up a premise or establish a storyline with lots of extra context. Brands don’t have to reinvent the wheel to use this newer video format.

5. Increasing tactics to create credibility –

Sugar Cosmetics Founder Vineeta Singh said: “It is very easy to create a brand, but very difficult to build one.” With brands launching daily, it’s important for brands to refocus on standinig out and building their brand. The battle is for the consumer’s mind, not just his wallet. That’s why we think that 2023 will see a returning focus on brand building. Brand trust will become an important currency, and Building brand trust means that the brand’s core purpose and working, needs to be communicated through everything that it says and does. 

Marketing is fluid. And as a branding and marketing agency in pune, we believe 2023 is going to be a big year for growth and innovation!
