Since the marketing budget is largely insufficient to take advantage of all the ways and means fo) implementation of marketing goals, it is very important not to focus the entire budget on one direction, but to diversify it.
You need to choose the means and ways that are most effective and show results faster. And to evaluate the effectiveness of the chosen path or advertising tool, you can use the ROAS (Return on Ad Spend) indicator.

Another important trend to follow is Gamification. It is probably no secret that almost always interactive, critical, and useful content provides a wider audience. And because people like to compete with each other through games, it may provide more engagement.

Generation Z (as the digital generation is often called) is the youth that created and will continue to create demand. Therefore, except for specific goods and services, in all other cases, it is extremely important to follow generation Z, since marketing and product trends are built by this generation, and products (goods and services) must be formed in accordance with their expectations.
6. Find more partners
