    Hootsuite Unveils the Top Social Media Marketing Trends for 2023

    Hootsuite launches its seventh annual Social Trends report, helping marketers inform and bring to life strategies around social marketing, social commerce and social care in the new year VANCOUVER, BC — November 15, 2022 — Social media moves fast, and to remain competitive in what will be a defining year to come, brands need a complete view of the emerging trends set to shape the social landscape in 2023. Bridging this gap, Hootsuite is excited to today announce the launch of its seventh annual Social Trends Report, providing a deep dive into the industry behaviors guiding brands’ marketing and social strategies this year.  At the time that last year’s Social Trends Report was released, pandemic restrictions were starting to ease and markets were booming – a positive turn of events that had many feeling optimistic for the future. However, looking ahead into 2023, a looming recession, rising inflation, declining consumer spending, and workforce reductions across major business sectors have made decision making precarious for businesses of all sizes. Despite this uncertainty, Hootsuite’s report shows that there is good news on the horizon.  Social marketers are experiencing a defining moment in history for the industry. After decades of advocating for social to have a seat at the boardroom table, it’s finally happening – social marketers are getting more agency over their work, and social media marketing has matured as a profession. “Social media has never played a more central role to businesses. As businesses continue to look for ways to future-proof operations and connect with today’s tech-savvy customers, social media and digital marketing will inevitably play a part in nearly every business strategy,” said Maggie Lower, Chief Marketing Officer, Hootsuite. “In 2023, businesses that take a social-first approach to their brand and customer care strategy will be the ones to reap the benefits.  Stronger brand reputation, greater customer interaction, trust and loyalty – now and in the future – depends on it.” Leveraging surveys from over 10,600 marketers and primary interviews with dozens of social marketing practitioners, leaders, observers and partners, we found compelling insights spanning the social ecosystem – from social marketing and care to social commerce. Here are the top insights for marketers to consider in the year to come: Big brands are investing less in influencer marketing, opening the door for small businesses to engage top creators (at lower price points!) Social’s newfound exposure in the C-suite opens it up to new levels of scrutiny – with differing opinions on what ROI looks like among social marketers and senior leaders Recycling content becomes a thing of the past; marketers stop chasing new features and start getting more strategic,  creating more creative, unique content for fewer platforms Social commerce loses traction with platform pull back, but is only a loss to those that follow suit; marketers with the patience to hold on see new opportunities to gain a competitive edge Google, who? Social search optimization emerges as a make-or-break skill for marketers The return to brick-and-mortar shopping makes businesses lose focus on digital customer service – opening the door for chatbot adopters to gain a massive advantage Marketers don’t feel equipped for digital customer service, and the implications of unanswered DMs are further reaching than one might think Social has become intrinsically intertwined with how people live, work, operate, and shop — with more than 4.7 billion people around the globe now using social media. While keeping up with all the evolving trends can be intimidating,  Hootsuite’s Social Trends Report offers marketers a guide to the wild world of social — complete with simple, specific recommendations — to help them gain an edge on their social strategy in 2023 and build community and connection with their customers.  “In a year marked by global economic and social upheaval, brands and organizations are looking for tools to help navigate their business through the noise to connect with their customers — and with even more urgency as we all become more digital and connected,” said Tom Keiser, Chief Executive Officer, Hootsuite. “With the launch of our 2023 Trends Report, we’re proud to provide our insights, recommendations and tangible recommendations to help organizations not only successfully navigate the digital wilderness, but also adapt to new buyer trends, find new ways to support their customers, and identify new paths for growth.” To help our customers put the top social trends into action in real-time, we have paired each trend within the report with newly-created resources that social media marketers can build into their strategy and begin using today. The suite of resources developed to support this report (available for download at the links below) include: Social Marketing Creator Brief Template for Small Businesses, helping social marketers to align goals and deliverables with the creators they are engaging,  while at the same time including clauses that ensure a mutually beneficial partnership. Social Media Report Template, complete with a success snapshot, data tracking, results and analysis to show social’s ROI to senior leaders. Social Media Audit Template, designed to help social marketers evaluate their current social media efforts and help inform their strategy for the new year.  Social Commerce Getting Started with Social Commerce Guide, breaking down the three simple steps required to start turning a brands’ social followers into paying customers. Social Post SEO Checklist Template, providing a list of tips to check off the list when developing social posts to ensure SEO is optimized. Social Customer Care Facebook Messenger for Customer Care Guide with everything brands need to know to build stronger relationships with their customers across messaging platforms like Facebook Messenger. Essential Direct Messaging Replies Template – a templated list of DM responses to enhance the social customer care experience, eliminating the need for our customers to think about how to respond next.  Get the complete analysis, brand examples, and strategies for 2023 in the full report.

    Hootsuite Collaborates with the World Health Organization to Help Combat Misinformation Around Global Health Crises

    By providing pro bono services, digital tools and access to courses and certifications, Hootsuite increases spread of factual and research-led information on social media VANCOUVER, BC — October 20, 2022 — Hootsuite, the global leader in social media management, is proud to announce a strategic collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) Digital Channels team, an extension of Digital Health & Innovations, in an effort to combat misinformation around global health crises. Through this initiative, Hootsuite is offering WHO pro bono services, digital tools and access to its on-demand Hootsuite Academy courses and certifications. Hootsuite is a member of the WHO Tech Taskforce, a collaboration of technology companies supporting WHO in its mission of advancing health innovation and equity and deploying critical information to global audiences. Bringing this effort to life, Hootsuite and WHO will apply key lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic to manage misinformation surrounding other global health crises, including monkeypox, the Ebola outbreak in Uganda, and more.  “When the world shut down, digital channels opened up, and we saw an influx of people turning to social media as their primary news source,” said Eva Taylor, Director of Social Impact, Hootsuite. “We’re so proud that our digital support will contribute to correcting misinformation, while helping to boost WHO’s social reach and engagement. We look forward to the impact that our collaboration will have in amplifying the voices that are spreading factual, objective insights on a global scale.” Alongside members of the Tech Taskforce, the WHO Digital Channels team has built a network of influencers to create social media content that debunks misinformation surrounding health topics from immunizations to breast cancer. With Hootsuite’s support, WHO is able to support these influencers — including scientists, doctors and frontline workers — with content, best practices, publishing tools and guidance on how to effectively execute a social media strategy. Tools provided to influencers include Hootsuite’s Enterprise offering and its Insights and Amplify dashboards. “We are excited to collaborate with Hootsuite to expand our reach across social media platforms and streamline our processes,” said Andy Pattison, Digital Channels Team Lead, WHO. “Technology companies like Hootsuite enable WHO and our network of medical influencers to reach more people around the globe with life-saving health information.” “The OurKidsHealth team is very excited to collaborate with Hootsuite to bring evidence-based child health information to diverse communities globally,” continued Dr. Ripudaman Singh Minhas, MD MPH FRCPC, OurKidsHealth Network Lead.
