In these years of economic uncertainty, the digital realm has consistently demonstrated resilience and innovation capabilities surpassing other market sectors, often becoming the solution to everyday challenges.
OpenAI and ChatGPT took center stage in 2023, with users now curious and nearly fully aware of digital tools, enjoying interactions with them. However, only a few managed to harness them effectively, leading to improved business performance. In particular, "Generative AI" is becoming a fundamental aspect of digital marketing, leveraging the artificial intelligence's ability to generate creative and innovative content. Moreover, the evolving connection between AI and the digital world also involves the automation of marketing strategies, particularly in optimizing processes and personalizing the user experience. Finally, the impact of data on Artificial Intelligence is relevant: indeed, the intensive use of such data can enhance and guide decision-making in AI, increasing effectiveness in digital marketing campaigns.
The year concluded with the Sam Altman/OpenAI saga, shaking investors and revealing significant sector instability. In 2024, regulations safeguarding artists, public figures, addressing fake news, and more are expected to be implemented in an easily manipulable context, necessitating optimal user protection.
Privacy will be another key player this new year. According to Google data from late 2023, only 3% of consumers feel in control of their online data. While alarming, this presents significant opportunities for more transparent companies to establish trust with their users and assert themselves in their respective sectors.
Another trend from 2023 continuing into 2024 is Drive to Store. In fact, Mobile users (90%) regularly receive offers on their devices while using apps, consuming social content, or watching YouTube videos.
Therefore, it's increasingly important for companies to guide users with the right offers at the right time to choose their products over competitors.
In-store experiences will also evolve, enhancing offerings for customers, creatively finding solutions to their needs, and flexibly meeting the demands of an increasingly unique and demanding clientele. Stores will integrate more with digital tools to engage users better, improving sales and loyalty with companies and reference brands.
In conclusion, in this dynamic economic context, marketing agencies must be agile in responding to any shifts, adjusting budgets quickly while keeping sight of the medium to long-term vision.
