In the last two decades we have witnessed a transition from early digital marketing tools (surveys, mass newsletters etc.), to more advanced online marketing techniques such as promotion through search engines, path analysis of website visitors with Google Analytics, newsletters to segmented list, responsive sites and mobile apps. These techniques are continually evolving as competition in the digital market intensifies. In this article, we present 8 new digital marketing trends that play an important role in the modern marketer’s life.
- Integrated communication campaigns – Marketing campaigns exploiting all channels and formats available online to reach potential customers. The budget allocated to online advertising in certain cases now exceeds the traditional marketing budget.

- Content creation to maximise strategic positioning as leader – Articles, posts, and websites that form or sustain online presence and are designed to give informal online leadership; the primary source of information for the target group.
- Business intelligence for active promotion – By connecting collected data through the site and through applications, as well as from CRM with platforms like Google AdWords, online advertising is designed to filter to related to areas, thus streamlining spending.
