As the year goes by, you can’t deny the fact that things will be different and will change, all aimed to be better. In the business life, you have to keep improving so that your business will keep up with time. Why? That’s because trends keep coming and everything will be new. While it doesn’t necessarily mean that we have to follow trends, we still have to keep up and come up with new ideas that can be adjusted to the trends and our business. That being said, it is not something new that SEO is important for business. With SEO, a business’ opportunity to be found online can increase. For that reason, many business owners hire SEO services to do SEO for their business. However, just like almost everything in the world, SEO has trends to keep up with as well. If you have a business looking to hire SEO specialists, in 2018 now on the way to 2019, you should be prepared first to predict what will be in trends in that year and what your business should do to prepare for the worst and the best.

Social media influencer
You might know many names on social media, but you know they are not real celebrities, right? Yes, they are the social media influencers. While using them to promote your business is not considered as something new, social media influencers keep growing and more popular these days. Followed by more than hundreds of thousands of followers and even some have reached millions, social media influencers are often considered as more helpful than just seeing endorsements from the real public figures. Why? That’s because most of the social media influencers always offer more genuine reviews and opinions instead of being too much commercial. For that reason alone, you might need to consider using a social media influencer to test your products and give them a review on their social media.
We have seen a lot of brands trying to look really perfect in front of their audience. While that may be natural for us to present what’s good about us instead of what we did wrong, it is so wrong to be too prideful and conceal our mistakes. It is business, not pimples. For that reason, we can find so many apps out there offering their platforms to be used as a tool for communication between customers and sellers, especially restaurants, like Zomato app, for example. Zomato app allows restaurants to include their business in the app, enabling people to find their restaurants, especially those nearby. On the other hand, Zomato also lets people review the restaurants so that their complaints and reviews will be heard by the restaurants directly. This is the true form of transparency that you let people know about your business’ progress no matter how good or bad. Also, from transparency, people will know your genuine response in regards to their complaints and whether or not you are willing to change and improve. This also works for social media. Instead of removing comments that contain complaints from customers or even ignoring them, it is better for us to give a response and admit our mistakes as well as let them know how we regret that and how we are willing to improve our quality. After all, we all make mistakes. It is only natural for us to fix our mistakes and let people know that we are not perfect. Therefore, people will appreciate our genuine response and are still willing to trust us.
