Top 5 Conversion Opportunities For Digital Marketers In 2012 + #Infographic

Top 5 Conversion Opportunities For Digital Marketers In 2012 + #Infographic | Curation, Gamification, Augmented Reality, connect.me, Singularity, 3D Printer, Technology, Apple, Microsoft, Science, wii, ps3, xbox | Scoop.it

Increas­ing cus­tomer engage­ment and con­ver­sions are top pri­or­i­ties.  Yet many of these pro­fes­sion­als have still not tapped all of the oppor­tu­ni­ties avail­able to make this hap­pen on their sites, leav­ing a dis­con­nect between what they say and what they actu­ally do.

 

Won­der­ing what areas offer some of the great­est oppor­tu­ni­ties for dig­i­tal mar­keters to see the ROI of their efforts? What do they say their pri­or­i­ties are vs. what do they actu­ally spend their mar­ket­ing bud­get on?

 

The results of the Adobe 2012 Dig­i­tal Mar­ket­ing Opti­miza­tion Sur­vey - http://bit.ly/KloyOL -  and a cor­re­spond­ing Info­graphic that uncover the top five areas that dig­i­tal mar­keters should focus on to imme­di­ately improve con­ver­sion and return on their mar­ket­ing investments.

 

Summary:

Sur­vey responses from more than 1,700 dig­i­tal mar­keters world­wide, span­ning business-to-consumer and business-to-business com­merce com­pa­nies across retail, finance, media, and tech­nol­ogy and con­sumer goods indus­tries, reveal that:


Con­ver­sion Opti­miza­tion needs to be given higher priority

Over 80% of respon­dents allo­cate 15% or less of their mar­ket­ing bud­get to opti­miza­tion efforts – up only 1% from our 2009 survey.

Test­ing con­sumer engage­ment through­out the fun­nel is crit­i­cal to optimization

But more than 50% of the respon­dents cited test­ing was still not a com­pany priority.

The search box is often the most-used area of a website

Yet fewer than 50% of respon­dents are opti­miz­ing on-site search results.

Mar­keters are not tak­ing advan­tage of sim­ple cross-sell or up-sell opportunities

38% of dig­i­tal mar­keters sur­veyed do not pro­vide any con­tent or prod­uct recommendations.

In the bur­geon­ing areas of video, mobile and social, mar­keters seem to be on the right path

61% of respon­dents are focus­ing on video in 2012 for help­ing drive conversion. 70% of respon­dents are focus­ing on social shar­ing as a top effec­tive social strategy. The top three mobile strate­gies mar­keters plan to focus on this year are mobile opti­mized sites, mobile apps, and adver­tis­ing pro­mo­tions, includ­ing bar codes and QR codes.

 

In eval­u­at­ing this year’s responses, the fol­low­ing Top 5 con­ver­sion oppor­tu­ni­ties emerged: http://adobe.ly/KlpfYc

Pri­or­i­tize opti­miza­tion across your orga­ni­za­tion as a strate­gic process Use a data-driven approach to opti­miza­tion Opti­mize con­ver­sion with video Opti­mize social engage­ment Opti­mize for all mobile chan­nels

[VIDEO] The greatest science e-book created so far

The book is Leonardo da Vinci Anatomy, and it's an iPad app that explores a collection of Leonardo's anatomy drawings (many of which were hidden from the public until the twentieth century) and explains the magnitude of the artist's contribution to science. Though Leonardo sometimes misinterpreted what he discovered, he nevertheless produced some of the most accurate anatomical studies of human musculature and organs ever seen before in the West.

AR SPOT: An Augmented-Reality Programming Environment for Children | Augmented Environments Lab | Curation, Gamification, Augmented Reality, connect.me, Singularity, 3D Printer, Technology, Apple, Microsoft, Science, wii, ps3, xbox | Scoop.it

AR SPOT is an augmented-reality authoring environment for children. An extension of MIT’s Scratch project, this environment allows children to create experiences that mix real and virtual elements. Children can display virtual objects on a real-world scene observed through a video camera, and they can control the virtual world through interactions between physical objects.

 

This project aims to expand the range of creative experiences for young authors, by presenting AR technology in ways appropriate for this audience. In this process, we investigate how young children conceptualize augmented reality experiences, and shape the authoring environment according to this knowledge.
