Digital Marketing Statistics

According to Hubspot, "A digital marketing strategy is a plan for using online channels to establish an internet presence and achieve specific marketing objectives."

Building, and following through on a high-level strategy is key to marketing success.

Despite digital being a key component of marketing for several years, almost half of marketing teams still aren’t properly documenting their digital marketing strategy. However, those that do report greater success compared to those that don't. This could represent an advantage for those with a documented digital marketing strategy.

But! Taking the time to build a strategy and sharing it with your organization can improve marketing successes massively. And being agile is sometimes crucial.


In 2024, SEO strategy is proving to be as important as ever, if not even more so. As part of a marketing strategy, high-quality content is crucial for encouraging organic search and link-building.

Search engines frequently prioritize video content to appear first. Using a combination of relevant written and visual content is important to rank higher on Google and capture a larger audience.

Long-form keywords can be incredibly effective, as people are getting more specific about what they’re looking for to sift through the vast amounts of content available.

Mobile Marketing

There has been a large shift in how audiences consume marketing content and it means that marketers need to become more and more mobile-friendly.

In 2024 mobile channels can not just be an alternative, secondary option but must become a primary focus in a comprehensive marketing strategy.

Visual Content

According to RockContent, "Visual marketing is the use of images, videos, and other pieces of multimedia content to strengthen your brand and communicate with your target audience."

Visual content is no longer a nice-to-have – it’s table stakes to rank higher and attract consumers better than the competition. It makes content more memorable and builds trust among consumers.

In 2024, building beautiful, eye-catching visuals is essential to any digital marketing strategy.


Video has been gaining importance exponentially in the marketing industry, expanding into live video, webinars, social stories, and more. Improvements in mobile technology and a surge in video tools available have made a video strategy possible for any budget, allowing smaller marketing teams to take advantage of this popular form of content.

Landing Pages

Landing pages require testing and adapting for success. They provide a rare ability to experiment and gain a deep understanding of audience preferences but require discipline and commitment over time to generate significant results.


It's easier for brains to process visuals over text, so using photos makes it easier for your audience to retain information and, ultimately, remember you. Photos are a core part of most marketers’ strategy, making unique, custom photography an important component to consider across both B2B and B2C industries.

As of 2023, WPDeveloper reports that, "there are over 1.9 billion websites around the world, and more than 600 million of them are blogs spread out over different channels and niches."

Blog posts with 2000+ words typically rank higher in search engines, as they are more likely to include higher quality content than short-term blog posts. However, it’s still important to enrich the text with visuals, headers and highlights to make it easily digestible to both readers and search engines.

With billions of social media users worldwide, businesses have the opportunity to get in front of ideal customers and create deep emotional engagement with their brands. As a significant driver of traffic and, in some cases, sales, understanding where your customers and competitors are active on social media is important to success.


Instagram is quickly becoming one of the most engaging social media platforms - and not just among Generation Z. With users making purchases based on the products they see on their feeds, Instagram offers the opportunity to drive business, especially in highly-visual B2C industries.


Video represents a large opportunity for businesses on Facebook. But, with such a high percentage of video being watched while users are on-the-go, videos need to be digestible without relying on sound (using subtitles and adding clarity). This will allow users to watch from anywhere, without having to use headphones or disturb people around them.


Twitter, while not renowned for its ability to drive sales, gives businesses a fantastic platform for updating customers and responding to customer service inquiries. Businesses can use Twitter to improve relationships with their customers and increase positive feelings for the brand.


While it’s important for both B2B and B2C organizations to have an active profile on LinkedIn, in terms of marketing, LinkedIn offers the most success in the B2B industry. Connecting companies with high-level influencers and decision-makers, LinkedIn helps drive relevant traffic and impact sales.


As it becomes harder and harder to reach customers with video advertisements, thanks to the addition of PVRs and streaming services, YouTube represents a massive opportunity for marketers. But, it’s important to note that companies only have about 2 seconds to grab attention, so video ads need to start with a bang.
