Digital advertising trends 2020

Every year advertising trends in digital are changing in the most unexpected way. Some small tools becoming more popular and big companies decided to spend huge budgets on them, others – staying in the same positions or going out of media plans.

Let’s see some trends, which will be popular in 2020.

Voice search

Voice messages enrage. But at the same time, they are handier when you’re driving or going from the shop with bags in your hands. This is one point. The second one: people are lazy. This is why the voice search is going to be more and more popular. Because it’s easy to say something to google and not type it. Do you remember the perfect burger king advertising with a voice search? They just show us an example of how to get more from voice search and play out of the frame.

Personalization in advertising 

Ads becoming more personal. Nobody loves general ad creatives, but people react to ads when it is talking to them and saying about things that are important for them.
