It’s easy to become jaded by digital marketing. Not only is there a steep learning curve, but it never stays still for long. There’s always some new feature that needs addressing or problem solving. 

For the time being, as the internet matures, we’re stuck with this fast pace of change. But that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing that we can do about it. Entrepreneurs who stay on trend put themselves at a distinct advantage over those who fall behind or just can’t be bothered. 

Here are some of the things you can do to stay on the pulse of digital marketing

1. Choose A Routine You Can Stick With 

We all know that good habits drive good outcomes. And that principle applies to staying up to date with digital marketing trends as much as it does with anything else. 

Perhaps the best piece of advice, for now, is to choose a routine that you can actually stick with. Entrepreneurs are often detail-driven people who are obsessed with every aspect of their work, but as with most things, like going to the gym, actually doing it is the most critical part. 

Choose digital publishing news sites that pique your interest and avoid those which have dry articles which offer nothing new. Get into a habit of taking notes, and spend at least ten minutes every day thinking about how to implement what you have learnt in your business.

2. Group Feeds 

Grouping feeds is probably one of the best innovations to impact the way people consume information over the last decade. Rather than having to search for specific on-trend terms, you can have the latest news on a particular topic delivered directly to your device. Find an RSS reader with a useful search function and a proven track record of delivering relevant content.

3. Consume A Variety Of Blogs 

Most entrepreneurs will consult a single source on a particular topic in digital marketing. This isn’t surprising, given the quality of many outlets. But that doesn’t mean that they’re doing the best they can. In any industry, especially in digital marketing, there are different levels of blogs. Some bloggers just want to get clicks and have manicured their articles in such a way as to achieve this. But if you really want to learn something your competitors don’t know, it’s worthwhile digging a little deeper. Long-form blogs aren’t always trendy, but you will learn a lot, especially if an expert has penned them. 

4. Discover Content On Social Media 

Social media might not be as tailored as an RSS feed, but it still has its uses. One of the ways in which social media can be a great ally is by getting up-to-the-minute information on what is happening in the world of digital marketing. Blogs usually have a delay of a couple of days or more before the writer has had time to churn out the relevant article. So by consuming social media, you could be getting one up on the competition.

Digital marketing is constantly evolving and you need to stay on top of new trends. If you don't keep your finger on the pulse of digital marketing then you'll find yourself eating your competition's dust.

I hope you enjoyed this article about why your company needs to stay on the pulse of the digital marketing industry to avoid falling behind the competition.
