The future of paid voice search
20 of online searches were conducted through
Voice Search. This is expected to grow by 50 by
2020. Brands will start optimising content for
voice search by adding more long-tail content.
Voice search and digital assistants
  • Voice search technology presents a big
    opportunity for changing the way we communicate
    and process information. The rise of digital
    assistants has presented a growing market that
    can change the way search queries are performed.
    According to Google, 1 out of 5 searches already
    come from voice queries.
  • This changes the search market and were
    expecting to see an even bigger shift towards
    voice search in 2018. When it comes to setting
    up an SEO strategy, the rise of voice search
    brings out the need to focus on more long-tail
    search keywords and a natural
  • language that matches the users conversational
  • voice search is expected to grow even more with
    its integration in smart home hubs, helping
    companies access new data, while users enjoy a
    seamless experience through everyday devices. As
    digital assistants go beyond smartphone devices,
    there is a great opportunity both for SEO and
    content, taking advantage of a growing market
    that connects the brand with a user in a unique
    but still relevant and useful way.
  • Currently, Google Home and Google Assistant read
    snippets from sites that are ranked in position
    zero and have been granted a featured snippet.
    This is why more people than ever are talking
    about how to optimize for featured snippets.
  • As accuracy improves in digital assistants, there
    will be more people using voice search from their
    mobile devices, seeking for quick and relevant
    answers. It becomes important to research the

    results, helping the algorithms provide the best

Vernacular Language / Native Advertising
  • Over the recent years, Native advertising has
    become increasingly streamlined and standardized.
    And only seems to improve in finding ways to
    deliver and promote content. If you are an
    advertiser looking to expand your business or a
    publisher looking to monetize your website
    through the digital platform.
  • English is the language most widely used on the
    internet and the social media. But the hold of
    the regional languages on the general public is
    strong and all important communication has to be
    in these languages especially in a country like
    India where only 76 are literate and in that
    only 10 knows English. That been the case the
    role of regional languages in the social media
    cannot be undermined.
  • A majority of the Indian rural population is not
    well versed in English and is most comfortable in
    their regional tongue. Some of the top brands
    have realized that if they want a greater
    audience they must make the foray into regional
    language on social media. They have realized that
    close to 60 of the urban population too access
    content in regional language when compared to
    English. And that is the reason that Facebook is
    available in several local languages. According
    to Google, local language consumption is four
    times that of English language.
  • According to Mindshift, a social media research
    agency vernacular websites are growing at a
    phenomenal rate of 56 per year when compared to
    English websites which are growing only at 11.
    To get maximum returns are in regional languages
    because 45 of online users consume regional
    language content.
  • According to IMRB if regional languages are made
    available online then 10.72 million rural
    population will opt for internet which in turn
    will increase the reach to 43 of the
    population. Hence the switch to regional language
    will usher in an era where there will be more
    internet consumption, greater growth, more
    literacy, better health and greater economic
    boost for the country..
  • This results in spreading the name of the website
    which ultimately promotes branding.
  • Native advertising generates higher purchase
    intention as readers are highly accustomed to
    these kinds of ads compared to traditional banner

Vernacular Language / Native Advertising

Whatsapp For Business
  • The instant messaging platform has explained the
    three different types of business accounts that
    are likely to be present on its platform and how
    users can identify them - a verified account, a
    confirmed account and a business account. A
    verified account would have a green checkmark
    badge on its profile and would be verified by
    WhatsApp. A confirmed account would have a grey
    checkmark badge on its profile and WhatsApp has
    confirmed that the phone number of this account
    would match the phone number for the business
    account. A business account would have a grey
    question mark badge on its profile and the user
    would be using the WhatsApp Business app, but

Facebook Messenger

    bots, chat bots or Facebook bots.

    now active on Facebook Messenger, and they're
    exchanging more than 2 billion messages per
    month with businesses. Neil Patel recently
    published an article in which he detailed how one
    of his Facebook Messenger campaigns saw 88 open
    rates, and a 56 CTR.

    to the marketing scene. Thats why its an
    exciting time to dive in and learn all about

    your free download anymore. Worse, they might
    completely ignore your marketing emails.

    email newsletter or campaign requires more steps
    and work than opening up a Facebook Messenger
  • From your perspective as a marketer, building an
    email list takes a lot of work. Creating a list
    of Facebook Messenger leads is a lot less work
    because of the reduced friction. Messenger is a
    one-click subscription instead of having to type
    in your email, click
  • submit, confirm email, etc.)

Facebook Messenger
  • A Messenger bot can have a sequence just like an
    email campaign. Sequences can be as long or short
    as you want and have as many options (or more)
    than an email sequence.
  • Messenger sequences are way faster than email
    campaign sequences. With an email campaign
    sequence, you typically should wait a day or two
    before sending additional emails. With Facebook
    Messenger, you can send more messages in the next
    10 seconds, 10 minutes, 10 days, whatever you
    want. Best of all, the response is instant and

    appeal that email lead generation forms have
    popups, slide-ins, buttons, boxes, etc. You can
