Our Marketing Vision for 2021

Last Updated April 26, 2021

📖 This post is part of a blog series overview of The Digital Marketer's Almanac 2021, an essential guide for every marketing professional.  We will cover critical topics from this resource to help SaaS, eCommerce, and Lead Generation marketers think strategically about the year ahead.

Challenges help us grow as they push us to find creative solutions. 2020 was full of challenges, with the first order of business being remote working—a phenomenon big companies weren’t sure was possible and never wanted to test out on such a scale. 

While reviewing the year behind us and preparing for the year before us, we pinpointed digital marketing trends for 2021. 

💡 SaaS solutions save the day. This year Software as a Service aka SaaS had a field day in terms of usage and spend and we are predicting more businesses in 2021 to use Artificial intelligence and mobile-first approaches in design.

💡 Online shopping grew exponentially. With more people getting the hang of online shopping from clothes to groceries (and everything in between) we predict marketers will use interactive tech to engage with their customers so that they are convinced to make choices and place things in their cart. 

More and more businesses will be offering free shipping to attract and retain customers, and public marketplaces will eventually disappear as brands chose to directly sell to consumers.  

💡 Crisis communication is essential. If 2020 has taught us anything, it's that anything can happen. Always have a strategic response for a crisis situation or a special situation even if everyone in the industry finds it unlikely to occur. 

💡 Diversify your online offerings to reach more people. Make sure that you're evolving within the digital realm. It’s good that you're offering online workshops for people living under the pandemic lockdown, but it would be great if that workshop was an on-demand webinar that anyone could access whenever they had free time from work. 

💡 Marketing must focus on better UX. With more people jumping the mobile device bandwagon, it makes sense that you would want to make your eCommerce site or app easier to navigate. A better user experience may just be the thing that gives you a competitive edge over a strong contender in the market. 

💡 Be flexible with your marketing strategy. If there's anything we can be sure of by now, it's the fact that consumers are less trusting in the future. Thanks to the pandemic and such an unprecedented shift in affairs, society may treat words such as "plan" in a very different light. Campaigns based on promises will have little effect in persuading them to switch to your business. 

Where other marketers will advise you to be prepared to pivot in the future, we say do it now!

Grow Faster, Smarter with EmberTribe

If you are stuck on the half a million yearly revenue plateau, you need a growth agency that will get to know your business, audiences, and growth opportunities like the backs of their hands—and let you in on everything they learn. 

No secrets, no bull. Just making sparks fly together.

✅ Focused on revenue

Look elsewhere if you're looking for a new logo or brand identity via 200-page slide decks. Those marketing disciplines have their place, but they're not our focus. We've doubled down on growing sales and injecting our clients with cash flow.

✅ We move fast

The typical agency model moves slowly: endless meetings, thousands of email threads, lots of talk, but little action. EmberTribe is different. We know what it takes to grow fledgling brands into formidable empires: a hell of a lot of execution.

✅ Trusted by the best

We've been recognized by Facebook and Google as one of the top agencies in the world. We're a mentor to startups within Techstars, Y Combinator and regularly consult with programs at MIT and Harvard Business School. Now it's time to add you to our Tribe.

Okay, let's do this!
