You can change wording, images, and much more, to target those visitors. Personalisation is the latest buzzword in marketing, and for good reason.

One of the biggest challenges is the retrieval of your users' emails addresses. People are (rightly so) sceptical about being in a mailing list campaign.

6. Short Form Video Content

TikTok is a great platform for short form videos. Yes, it started for the younger audience, but the same said about Instagram, and we predict businesses will adopt this new platform.

7. Featured Snippets

On the rise is position 0 (better than position 1). A Featured Snippet is essentially is the top position in Google.

These Snippets are the voice answer that smart speakers use. Wikipedia do very well from these, as they provide unbiased, informative, concise information to the user's question.
