As 2021 has drawn to a conclusion, we realize how far we've gone from January 2020, when the covid story began globally.
As we look back on the year that has passed, we can see that 2021 was a year filled with personal challenges, mini-wars against multiple variants of the covid-19 virus, opportunities to identify multiple white spaces and develop and build solutions for a changing business nature.
"This year will see significant changes in almost every industry, especially cloud computing and web hosting, VPS hosting as numerous businesses seek online space. Forward-thinking entrepreneurs will be able to capitalize on trends to launch new, successful businesses," says Chinmay Dingore, Director of MilesWeb Pvt Ltd.
Keeping an eye on small business trends is equally essential when we talk about business growth. So far, 2021 has been fraught with uncertainty. Businesses all over the world have had to adjust to a new normal. Things have not been easy for businesses, especially small-scale businesses. Each challenge, however, brings with it an opportunity. Small and large businesses can capitalize on these trends and emerge more powerful than ever.
Investing in future trends before time ensures that your company benefits from them tomorrow is essential. Organizations across all industries are dealing with rapid transformation. Furthermore, there are massive global shifts and challenges to contend with, such as climate change and shifting political and economic power. To be true, our world is rapidly changing, and organizations need to learn to adapt as well.
The founder adds, "Understanding what factors will contribute to growth in the coming years will help you plan your business strategy."
Speaking about the business trends that would impact the growth in the coming year, Chinmay adds, "Agility in organizational structure is essential. Organizations have traditionally been very hierarchical and rigid in their structures. However, this is changing as leaders recognize the need for flatter, more agile structures that enable the company to reorganize teams and respond to change. It is also a reaction to the changing work nature, specifically the expansion of freelance and remote workers."
Talking about what will impact business growth, he says, "Personalized experiences must be prioritized. In 2022, businesses that provide personalized experiences and offer/discounts according to their customers will thrive. Offers or services based on customer location, communications that are unique to that preferred channel, or recommendations based on previous purchases are examples of good personalized experiences."
A few more business trends for 2022 discussed by Chinmay Dingore are:
Spending on social media
With billions of users across the leading social media platforms, it is no surprise that social media has become a growing target for marketers. This rapid expansion will not end in 2022 but will increase. According to estimates, social media ad spending may increase by 15% in 2022.
"We're seeing an increase in social media spend year over year – and the previous year was a dramatic increase," said Chinmay. "In the previous years, everyone was forced to reduce their dependence on traditional brick-and-mortar marketing. They were forced into going digital, and many are pleased with the results."
"We'll experience high spending on digital marketing in 2022," Chinmay added.
The right mix of human workers and AI
How can artificial intelligence (AI) not be on a list of future business trends? Artificial intelligence (AI) is sweeping the business world. We now have increasingly capable robots and artificial intelligence (AI) systems that can perform tasks that humans performed. Employers face a critical question: how do we balance intelligent machines and human intelligence? What roles should machines be given? Which functions do humans excel at? Without a doubt, automation will have an impact on every industry, so business leaders must prepare their organizations – and their people – for the changing nature of work.
The Founder adds, "AI should not be viewed as a replacement for human workers; rather, it should be viewed as a coworker who will make us more efficient while also assisting us in improving customer experience."
Authenticity is essential
Consumers today are looking for a more meaningful connection with brands. As a result of this need for connection, genuineness has emerged as a business trend in its own right. "Authenticity fosters human connections because, as humans, we like to see brands (and business leaders) demonstrate essential human qualities such as honesty, dependability, empathy, compassion, humility, and perhaps even a bit of vulnerability and fear. We want brands (and leaders) to care about issues and stand for something other than profit,” he states.
Comprise cloud technology
It is expected that businesses will expand their use of cloud computing by 2022. Enterprises will become more agile, collaborative, efficient, and scalable while cutting costs. To be precise, web hosting is a domain playing a vital role when talking about cloud computing. The fact that web hosting is an expanding business trend, cannot be denied.
Businesses prioritizing employee well-being
"Employees' health and wellness will be a top priority for businesses not only in 2022 but also in the years ahead. With everything that is going on in the world since 2020, if there is one thing we can be certain of, that is our health, which is of the utmost importance. Not only is physical health important, but so is mental health."
“Organizations must realize that it is not just about a bigger paycheck, but also about showing employees that they are valued. Businesses must have happy and healthy employees in order to have productive employees. In the workplace, there should be more discussion about one's physical and mental well-being. Companies must look to address these issues and streamline remote working in order to establish clear work-life boundaries.” the Founder states.
User reviews reign supreme
Review is in line with the growing number of small businesses looking to improve digital marketing. What better way to market than to have hundreds of customers say that your product or service is fantastic?
User reviews have largely replaced product descriptions as an essential factor in our purchasing decisions. According to the study, when there are no reviews, approximately 92% of people are hesitant to purchase. Reviews have become absolutely necessary for products sold online; the fact that your product/service has received a 4-star rating from hundreds of customers immediately makes it more appealing.
When real people advocate for your brand online, it becomes more trustworthy and leads to increased sales.
"Aside from these trends, there will be transformative technology trends in 2022, such as artificial intelligence and increased digitization, for which every company must be ready," he concluded.
