How to future-proof your 2022 marketing strategy

Since the pandemic hit, we have witnessed businesses worldwide juggling priorities as they fought to hold on to success and drive growth. As we move into 2022 we need to focus on marketing strategies that will last the test of time and be resilient as the economic and business landscape continues to shift.

Here are five tips for future-proofing your 2022 marketing strategy –

Promote strong brand principles – buyers today want to engage with brands that are authentic and have integrity. Ensuring your brand has a clear identity and values that align with those of your target audience will instil trust and help you build a strong connection with prospective customers.

Use measurable insights – accurate insights will ensure that your marketing programmes keep pace as your buyer’s needs continue to change in a fast-paced environment. By using reliable sources of actionable insight and real-time analytics tools, your employees will be able to understand which elements of your strategies are working well and which need improvement so they can immediately refine and optimise campaigns.

Have a solid data foundation – if your marketing programmes are underpinned by complete and up-to-date data they will resonate better and generate better quality leads. A clean, profiled database will ensure your message and targeting are more accurate and relevant as things continue to change and, incorporating intent and AI-driven data, will also help to target an audience that is more likely to be receptive to your offer.

Integrate hybrid working – as the balance of remote and office-based working continues to flex, it is important to create an environment that meets the needs your marketing teams. Ensure you have a balanced, flexible model so that creativity and collaboration is not constrained. Ensure also that your communication channels and strategies optimise engagement with a target audience that is likely to be both home-and office-based.

Keep it human – while it is important to take advantage of the marketing technologies available, it is equally important to retain a human connection at a time when we crave more care, attention and human interaction. By establishing a strategy that not only includes but prioritises human-to-human contact, prospective clients will feel nurtured on their journey with your brand and will be more likely to convert to qualified leads.

We hope some of these tips will help you future-proof your marketing strategy and bring you success in 2022. If you would like to incorporate the value of the human touch into your sales and marketing approach this year, get in touch to discuss how we can help.
