Content Marketing Trends 2024
  1. Artificial Intelligence (AI) – According to research, AI is dominating the content marketing industry. AI can help business owners with content and marketing ideas. It can be used for research (always remember to fact check), idea generation, and as a means to optimize the quality of content created. It can even lay the basis for content. In all instances, it is important to make sure that artificial intelligence is used by people for people.

AI may generate drafts that can be used by writers to create enriching, deep, high-quality content.
  2. Outsourcing – The next content marketing trend is the use of outsourcing. This is especially true in terms of graphic design, copywriting, and video design, and video animation.
