Looking Ahead to the festive season of 2022
Moving ahead to the festive season of 2022, a lot has changed. Facebook has disbanded Live Shopping, and the Shop tabs are about to go down on the 31st of October. So how can you as a merchant make an appeal to your audience? Let us see what’s in the store for the festive season to come.
Promote Branding with Products:
One thing the new generation is too frenzy about is the promotion of the brand as a whole. The display of marketing tactics that showcase the branding along with its products. Since the pandemic, the world has become a buff of extra efforts. Therefore, moving into the season of festivals all you need to do is create a balance between branding and product promotion.
Facebook and Instagram have been focusing a lot on Influencers. Lately, the subscriber feature for creators has been kept forward in order to help them. Therefore, getting your products advertised by creators and influencers has become a recent trend, which brings in a lot of positive traffic. In 2021, Social discovery took an exponential increase, and shoppers were able to discover more products.
Creators will capitalize on buyers’ willingness to experiment, and explore new brands. Reels and other forms of media will also be used by creators. Content production tools assist companies in telling their stories and their tales and interacting with customers in more profound ways.
Retailers will expand the integration of BNPL:
Rising inflation, increasing loan rates, and the end of the epidemic period will all contribute to the expansion of BNPL as we discussed earlier, and it will become a booming trend. The Buy Now Pay Later Advent is more helpful to students and loan bearers.
NFTs will be used for trade
Since the inflation, the trading of NFTs has degraded. The rise it received at the beginning of the year was immense. But, once the trading begins again, several brands will be trading in NFTs to get along with the tech market.
