Mobile: The Driver of the Future - Brands & Retailers Will Have to Change | MediaPost | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

This article from Mediapost gives you a glimpse into the world of mobile and how it is becoming our conduit to information, communication, engagement and much more.

 

What implications does this have for advertisers and retailers - interesting insights and food for thought.........

 

Mobile today and in the future - here are some highlights:

 

Reading the news, connecting with friends, finding our way, playing games — these are tasks they’ve already commandeered. So why should they not control our homes, plan our vacations, shop(in-store, not just online) and fall in love?

 

“Ten or 15 years from now, literally everything is going to be controlled by your phone,” says Ly Tran, digital marketing director at Proof Advertising. “It’s where we’ll get all our information, communicate and connect. They’re the driver of the future.”


Mobile devices have already revolutionized shopping. Last year, four out of five U.S. smartphone owners used their devices to help with shopping, according to Google/Ipsos. 

 

Such statistics make it tempting to predict the death of brick-and-mortar retail. But rather than cede their business, retailers like Best Buy will be forced to embrace mobile as part of the in-store experience, says Mark Silber, executive creative director of WPP mobile agency Joule.

 

The way retail works now, “you go into Best Buy to check out a TV set and then order it on Amazon,” says Silber. “If Best Buy is interested in surviving, they’re going to have to do something to the in-store experience.”

3 ingredients to make your contents go viral

3 ingredients to make your contents go viral | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Some content pieces had what it took to become viral way before the internet era. We called that phenomenon “word of mouth” and it helped products and ideas to spread around with the speed of light.

 

In today’s world, with so many communication means available, it should be easy enough for anyone to create a viral piece and unleash it into the world. Unfortunately, not everything online goes viral. Some pieces attract millions of eyeballs while others get their fair number of shares without entering the VIP club. Why?...

Content Marketing World 2016: Top Takeaways for Creating Content

Content Marketing World 2016: Top Takeaways for Creating Content | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Joe Pulizzi, Founder of the Content Marketing Institute, put it in CMW’s opening keynote: “Mediocre content will hurt your brand more than doing nothing at all.”

Currently, only 20% of content marketers said they were committed to a full content marketing approach: Hitting a defined audience with one message, finding compelling angles from which to tell your story, staying consistent over time, and building value outside of the products and services you offer, according to Pulizzi.

The other 80%? They’re creating a lot of content, but not building a loyal audience or telling a new story.

Here’s what some of our favorite speakers had to say about how their companies are creating great content and staying ahead of the pack in the content marketing space....

Percent of TV Channels Viewed Drops to Single Digits, Nielsen Attributes Digital Choices

Percent of TV Channels Viewed Drops to Single Digits, Nielsen Attributes Digital Choices | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

The hyper-fragmentation of consumer choice across all screens is reducing the share of choices they make to watch a TV channel. That’s among the top findings coming out of the latest edition of Nielsen’s “Total Audience Report.”

The report, which was released to clients Thursday, is the first to publish shares of channels received and viewed by the average American household in a while.

It shows the average number viewed has fallen to less than 10% of the channels they receive.

That’s down dramatically from the last time Nielsen published such data, which showed the average was still in the double digits....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Research reinforces multiscreen and fragmentation of TV viewing.

4 Graphs That Illustrate How Facebook and Google Dominate Ad Revenue - MediaShift

4 Graphs That Illustrate How Facebook and Google Dominate Ad Revenue - MediaShift | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Our industry faces a well-known duopoly, with Facebook and Google commanding an ever-increasing share of digital ad spend, both in the U.S. and globally. I recently dug into the data and forecasts available, to better quantify (for my own benefit and hopefully yours!) just how much Facebook and Google are eating digital.

Global ad spend, across all channels (digital, TV, print, radio, outdoor, etc.) is growing annually on average by 5.6 percent from 2015 to 2020, and will reach $674 Billion from $513 Billion in 2015.


The U.S. market will represent 35 percent of the global ad market, reaching $234 Billion by 2020 with a slightly slower growth rate compared to the global average, at 5.0 percent from 2015 to 2020. This is expected as rapidly developing markets in the East and a growing middle class represent new markets on which advertisers can focus.

45% Of U.S. Ad Spend Will Be Digital
33 percent of ad spend in the U.S. was digital last year and that is expected to reach 45 percent by 2020. In real numbers, that’s a $60-billion market growing to $105-billion, with a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.9 percent.


The growth of digital is more than 2 times higher than the growth of the overall ad market, which represents a tremendous opportunity for digital businesses. More people are accessing content online and more advertisers are spending their budgets online. Will the rising tide lift all ships?...

Facebook and Google dominate digital ad revenue and here's a look at how the industry shapes up globally.
