Interactive Content Marketing
Content Marketing has always been one of the most crucial elements of a digital marketing strategy. It breached the market way back and over the years, it has become all-encompassing.
As cost and competition within content marketing increases, businesses should divert more of their focus towards measuring content marketing ROI.
In the current scenario, engagement is everything. For readers to chew and act upon content, brands should be moving towards interactive content.
With the digital market and consumers growing, there are endless possibilities to lure in customers. Interactive content marketing would not only prove effective in attracting and retaining buyers but would also work as a competitor differentiator.

Big Data, as such, includes predictive analytics and customer and market insights. Firms need to mine through the data and identify customer behaviour and characteristics.
An automated and effective way of scoring and nurturing leads, there are still quite a few business firms that are yet to exploit the benefits of market automation.
To begin and reach the next level, marketers should be focused on data driven ad capabilities, predictive analytics towards personalization, and aligning sales and marketing.
One-to-one marketing is getting all the traction and becoming more and more relevant. Big Data plays an important part in providing a personalized customer experience.
What marketers should try is to weigh costs and opportunities and continually seek to ways to integrate it into their messaging and advertising.
Some prime examples of personalization are Amazon, Netflix and Spotify.
A brief look at one’s Facebook timeline would demonstrate how most of the feed is filled with videos. However, there’s a lot of room for more.
As per eMarketer, videos, in general, would be the fastest-growing content category at least till 2020. And among every other kind, live video emerged as the hottest trend.
With customers getting savvier with each passing moment, online video accounts for 50% of all mobile traffic. With multiple platforms like Facebook and Periscope, connecting real-time with followers and customers is now quite easy.
