Things are always changing with content marketing.  After all, its one of the most popular ways for companies to develop customer relationships, increase brand awareness and directly target their audiences. With so many new trends and changes, it’s important that you stay ahead of what’s to come.

Here are some of the key changes to see in content marketing that will impact your business in the upcoming years.

  • Mobile users will be your priority

Not so surprisingly, mobile marketing is only going to become more popular. Produce your content with mobile users and their devices as your primary concern (think touch screens). To stay on top of this trend, put more of a focus on creating mobile content that users can easily see/read, interact by swiping rather than scrolling, and upload pictures and videos to.

  • Content will be more personalized

People are shown to value content more that appears to be specifically written for them. Steer away from generic content, and write content that specifically addresses the interests and concerns of your consumers.
