Anything successful has context. Remember this. You’re going to need it as we move in to 2013 because, let me tell you now, stuff’s about to get real. We’ve spent the past few years as marketers wrapping our brains around the changing landscape.
Key Takeaway: In 2013, watch for content marketers to focus on context—targeting their message to the right person, at the right time, in the right space. Marketers will need to learn how to place the most appropriate non-intrusive messages right where consumers are best positioned to respond. If you do it right, you’ll engage your audience, they’ll share your content with their networks, and that will create more valuable context. It’s a win/win, for both marketers and consumers.
