Ultimately, the digital marketing sector remained the focal point of every industry’s attention in 2023 and continued its growth exponentially.
Yasin Kaplan mentioned that TikTok ads, YouTube, and Instagram Reels channels saw significant advertising budgets in 2023. He stated, “Video content has become the leading type of digital advertising, and vertical videos are among the most consumed content. With 2023 being designated as the year of artificial intelligence, the impact of AI-based services on advertising panels has increased. During this period, brands turned to video content with the ease and assistance offered by artificial intelligence. We observe a significant increase in interaction rates, especially on video platforms. In 2024, AI will further strengthen its role in digital marketing and advertising creative work. These innovations in the industry have allowed brands to manage their budgets more effectively.”
