Content marketing has evolved over the last decade tremendously.

Where will the future of content take us and how do we stay on top of the trend?

We are going to tackle the futuristic ideas of the importance of content marketing along with past historical data to support it.

Let’s dig into the future of blogging and how it will impact your content marketing strategy.

Content Statistics of the Past

If we’re going to look forward into the future of blogging, it’s important to know where we came from.

Did you know the first blog was in 1983? And the actual term “blog” didn’t really catch on until 1990?

According to Wikipedia, the history of blogging started with Usenet featuring the moderated newsgroup which allowed posting in a newsgroup.

Most such newsgroups were simply moderated discussion forums.

However, in late 1983, mod.ber (which no longer exists), was created and a few associates regularly posted summaries of interesting postings and threads taking place elsewhere online.

And blogs were “born”.

Some statistics on content over the past decade show it’s value and importance in business. These statistics come from WordStream:

  • Content marketing costs 62% less and generates approximately three times the volume of leads.
  • Conversion rates are six times higher for companies and brands using content marketing than those that aren’t.
  • 81% of marketers plan to increase use of original written content for blog posts.
  • Almost two thirds of marketers – 60% – produce at least one new content asset every single day.
  • 80% of executives and business owners prefer to receive information about a company through articles rather than advertisements.
  • 88% of B2B marketers in North America use content marketing as part of their wider digital strategies.
  • 95% of consumers consider content the most trustworthy when evaluating a company and its offerings.
  • 78% of buyers relied on white papers to make a purchasing decision within the past year. 

These stats are staggering!

Content Bots are on the Rise

What is a content bot? And does the thought of one scare you?

We all know AI is here and that bots are slowly making their way into our lives in various ways.

Some artificial intelligence will revolutionize the way we do things and our lives will benefit.

On the flip side, some bots are taking over jobs and roles that are a bit outside of our comfort zone. Security and safety are in question here!

Content bots write articles by artificial intelligence. The scary thing about this is that the content could be inaccurate!

Additionally, the content has the potential to lack personalization. Without the passion behind what you do, your content would become lackluster.

Content bots are on the rise and we don’t want you to lose sight of the importance of quality content. Find help with formatting, not portraying your passion.

The good news is that there are content tools that can help to facilitate the process of blog writing that allow you to still have a personal touch.

AI’s capability to generate content rapidly can streamline the blogging process, allowing for the creation of initial drafts or suggesting new blog topics and headlines based on niche trends.

However, this technological advancement also raises concerns about the authenticity and uniqueness of AI-generated content.

To maintain a competitive edge, bloggers must leverage AI ethically and strategically, ensuring that the human touch and personal insights that readers value are not lost. Share on X

Incorporating AI tools can save time and enhance creativity.

However, the core of a blog’s content should remain rooted in genuine human experiences and stories that resonate with the audience.

One thing will remain the same. Blogs will continue to be the best and easiest way for people to consume content on a massive level.

You should have a few best practices for blogging in place so you can be ready to take on the future.

There are a few reasons why blogs will remain the most popular.

PRO TIP: Make your blog an educational one!

Lastly, data doesn’t lie! Blogs have continuously been on an upward trend since they began. Amanda Zantal-Wiener of HubSpot writes

“I don’t know about you, but after diving into the history of blogging, I’m pretty excited to see what its future looks like. It makes sense, when you look at the state of blogging now. It’s an integral part of marketing and content strategy, and has even shown to increase lead flow up to 700% for some businesses.”

We could all use a lead flow increase of 700%.

Digital Consumption will Double

We all want to get on Google’s good side, right?

Well, you are in luck because digital consumption is predicted to double in the near future.

With more remote work, more careers online and even more automation, digital consumption will skyrocket!

The impact COVID-19 had on digital consumption is all documented here by Comscore.

The article is part of a series of insights that reveal the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on online consumer behavior. They plan to update these insights as time goes on as well.

Even the Wall Street Journal had a few key takeaways about the prediction of digital consumption in the future:

  • Gen Zs and millennials are finding connections that are meaningful online.
  • Digital advertising is growing, while everything else is flat.
  • User-generated content feeds offer a sense of community and trust.

We ask the question, what is the next big thing?

The digital age will continue to grow regardless of what the next big thing might be.

Having a solid business strategy for your blog will be crucial as more and more people connection online.

Embracing Video Content in Blogging

As digital consumption patterns evolve, the integration of video content into blogs is becoming not just a trend but a necessity.

Platforms like …

  • YouTube
  • TikTok, and
  • Instagram Reels

… are examples to the growing preference for video over text these days.

For bloggers, this means adapting by incorporating video elements into their content strategy.

Videos can serve as a powerful tool to complement written content, offering a dynamic way to:

By embedding relevant videos within blog posts or creating video versions of popular articles, bloggers can cater to diverse audience preferences, enhancing the overall content experience and expanding their reach.

Authority Blogging will be in Demand

What are authority blogs? They are exactly what they sound like, a big deal!

CopyPress defines an authority blog or an authority site as one of the main places people go to for information on a particular niche or topic. 

In order to dominate the topic and become the expert, you will need to establish yourself as an authority on the subject.

This is portrayed by the level of expertise you provide in your content and through brand image.

Your content then becomes an authority blog that is highly sought after online.

An authority blog is the ultimate goal of writing content. Become an authority in your field and help people through your content. It’s a win-win!

Quality Content will Win Search Engines

As you can see by the statistics we have written in this article alone, content will be on the rise no matter what happens.

That’s our prediction here at Bramework, at least.

With that being said, there will be a lot of content that is simply not quality.

Have you ever visited a website that you were really interested in and got to their blog only to find out it was filled with horrible content?

What a let down. Don’t let that be your website!

Quality content will be on the rise as more and more blogs saturate the Internet.

The search engines will become more apt to finding fluffy, shallow and frankly, bad content and flagging them as not worthy for inquiry.

We predict that the digital age will be consumed with internet police that are scouring the net looking for falsities, bad links and vulnerable patches for hackers.

This will result in more content not being allowed online unless it passes a series of secure tests.

Your goal? To create high quality content that follows the right guidelines to sustain traffic. It is more important to create quality content over quantity!

How do you do this? Lean on the right blogging tools for the job!

Educational Content will Dominate

We mentioned this earlier, but it is so important we want to be sure to reiterate the fact that educational content is key!

A smiling woman in a yellow sweater sitting on the floor with an inviting presence for blog readers. Learn more about the future of blogging here.

Your blog is the voice of your brand and providing value to your audience is your number one goal.

Allowing your audience to read your expertise and get key takeaways from it is the ultimate foundation for building trust.

That being said, educational content will be the dominating core of blogs out there in the future.

A few studies and surveys have shown that blogs who speak only about their self in a very press release style are not as successful as those that offer valuable tools for learning.

If your blog is all about …

  • Your launch
  • Your brand’s accolades, and
  • Your successes

… that’s fantastic, but no one is interested in a boastful brand.

Instead, be a resource.

Educating your audience will be the most consumed content on the internet. If you’re not teaching, you’re selling.

You will need to think in the WIIFM mindset.

WIIFM stands for “what’s in it for me” — and that’s what your audience is saying when they read any blog, anywhere.

Their interests are at the fore front and their mind are set to “how can this benefit me”? If there is no value, your content will not hold interest.

How can you know what your readers want to see?

Tune in and use tools to help you! Here are 21 of the best tools you can use to help with blogging.

Alternate Content Sources will Increase

Not to leave other content aside, we want to be sure to include every form!

Content will come in many different styles, forms and avenues.

The way content will be sent and received may be different than the year before and the year before that.

The future of the form of content will evolve into the easiest way to consume possible!

We have seen vlogging, podcasting and webinars rise to the top of content trends in the last few years.

What will be next? We predict …

  • Live streaming events
  • Interactive virtual reality blogs, and
  • Immersive technology platforms

… that allow for more visual content.

Your best bet is to be camera ready if you want to stay ahead of the content trend!

Understanding the power of your body language through content will be on the rise. It can be daunting and overwhelming, but the more upward trends we see in video, the more comfortable it will be to get in front of the camera.

These content sources will be another great thing to share on your blog!

Don’t forget that your blog is the core of your website. You can post your vlog, podcast, webinar or “tele-virtual-remote-blog” on there!

We made that word up, but it could catch on…TVRB? Maybe?
