How Digital Marketing Will Change in 2021:


Today I wanted to talk to you guys about the future of digital marketing. Where's my size. All right, as you guys can see and the future is not what you think, but don't worry not everything has to be grim there is some good news as well.

How many of you guys or what percent of the voice searches will be in 2020? What do you think, what percentage? Go for it, yeah you, you really do listen to marketing school a lot, 50% it is. Things are changing, how are you going to monetize when someone's doing a search over a Lexa device or Google Home, how are you going to monetize that? Have you guys ever thought about that, 50%? I want that revenue for that 50%, don't you guys.

So there's a lot of things that are changing. What happened to Google's revenue during the recession? They went up, what do you think is going to happen to their revenue during this recession? It's probably going to go up.

They'll figure out ways to make it go up if the cost per clicks go down you may see more pay listings on page one, right? Generally speaking performance advertising continues to go up, if you spend a dollar on paid ads you expect to make more money than what you spent, would you guys agree with that statement?

So during a recession, if you still spend a dollar on Google and you make $2 do you think you're going to slow down because it's a recession? No, it doesn't matter if it's a recession, a bull market, a bear market. If you can spend a dollar and make $2 as long as it's profitable, including all your other costs you're going to keep spending as much money as you can. And that's what you'll see, people will start moving their traditional ad dollars more over to performance-based marketing during recessions.

Marketing is going omnichannel, no shocker, which place gets the majority of the revenue? Google. Who has the largest market cap? Google.

Next one, Facebook ads make sense. Facebook has a huge market cap. Then you get into SEO and content marketing and social media marketing and then other. SEO may get a lot of the clicks but paid advertising, spend a dollar make $2. You don't have to wait a long time people keep spending. Conversion rate by channel, Google ad words, Facebook ads, SEO content marketing, social media, other.

Average number of social shares per post, it's been continually declining. What do you think is going to happen in the future? You think it's going to go back up? Nope, if you want to go back up what are you going to have to give Facebook? Money, that's the reality of it.

      Hello Neil,
      Before 5-6 days I started facing a problem in which when I index a URL on Google and after some hours it gets removed from google then after a day it gets re-indexed but not visible on any position on Google.
      When I index it the first time the article gets a Great Position and after re-index, it does not get any position.
      Can anyone help me, Please

        With new posts sometimes you just need to give them some time to settle in the SERPs.

      Hi Neil. I learned a lot from this video. Thank you so much. By any chance do you have a link to all the free tools you mentioned in this video? I have never used any of them before and realised what I was missing

      Following you since I think 3 years now, this video seemed like the summary of the Affiliate World Asia talk from 2016…
      That was a really great conference too…. 🙂
