There are so many metrics to measure, but which ones matter most?
With so many digital marketing channels and advertising options out there now, it can get overwhelming, and we are spoiled for choice. Using every channel may not always be the best approach, but rather we should be making the most out of each channel instead. This can be explained simply as “working smart” as opposed to working hard; the ‘digital marketing trends in Thailand 2021’ version.
Marketers are comparing user statistics along with the most supportive advertising systems when choosing their advertising platform. For example, Facebook’s 1.7 billion active users are a major key factor to why digital marketers go for Facebook advertising as a preferred platform.

The rise of user-generated content
Involve your audience in your marketing campaigns. This approach takes “being heard” to a new level and shows the trust that you have for your audience. With the pride of contribution, this urges your audience to be on your side and to fight alongside your brand. In this day and age, recognition goes a long way, especially for millennials. More brands now need to have a genuine interest in what their audience wants and support them in doing so to gain their loyalty in return.
We at Seven Peaks organize and host our own events at our Bangkok office to engage with our community both offline and online, allowing our participants to learn, share and network with industry professionals.

Video content continues to boom for digital marketing
During 2017, Forbes stated that video content amounted to 74% of Internet traffic that year. At the start of 2020, Cisco predicted that 79% of total mobile traffic will be video by 2022. Video marketing only keeps growing. People have simply transitioned more from looking at images to more animated content instead due to videos being more engaging at first sight. If pictures contain a thousand words, a video contains a thousand pictures.
Digital marketers are accountable for data, ROMI, and digital marketing performance
Data, data, and more data. Digital marketers need to have a strong level of data analytics to identify which strategies work and why they worked; this data is simply used to know what digital marketing campaigns you’re doing right what you’re doing wrong so that you can learn from mistakes and not repeat them. This is vital as the budget is on the line when it comes to paid advertising strategies. You always want a good ROMI (Return on Marketing Investment) so that your dollar stretches as much as possible, and this can be seen and done through good analytical planning, tracking and adapting.
Watch out for millennials as one of digital marketing trends in Thailand for 2021
Millennials are the trend-setters. Netflix started in 1998 as a result of people getting too many fines for late DVD rentals, thus opening their own movie streaming service through the web. In 2004, Facebook was created by a group of students at University to connect with other local students through an online community. That being said, we all need to watch out for what millennials are up to and what they are doing now, for the tools they are using now may just become more mainstream shortly.
