7 Predictions For The Future Of Online Marketing 

7 Predictions For The Future Of Online Marketing  | Social  Buzzr | Scoop.it
Among my predictions were the disappearance of conventional Internet “connections,” the commoditization of privacy, the arrival of augmented reality, less work for skilled humans, and the arrival of the Internet to planets beyond Earth.

Those predictions for the development of the Internet got me thinking about their more practical, grounded ramifications. For example, with these predictions in mind, what can we say about the future on marketing and advertising? Here are my predictions for how online marketing will change over the next 15 years:

The value of sponsored content:  | Social  Buzzr | Scoop.it
Since the Web has become an integral part of our everyday lives, users tend to expect more from it every year. We all want an Internet experience that’s easy to use, tailored to our preferences, and largely unimpeded by annoyances and distractions.

If you want to understand precisely how web user preferences have changed over time, study various Internet advertisements as they have evolved. In the early days of the web — that is to say, in the late 1990s and the early 2000s — ads were everywhere. If you clicked on a site, it wasn’t unusual to see banner ads at the top of the page, small flashing ads in the sidebars, lower-quality ads at the bottom of the page, ads integrated into the content, and so on.

How Silicon Valley can put local businesses back on the map

How Silicon Valley can put local businesses back on the map | Social  Buzzr | Scoop.it
When politicians say that “small businesses are the backbone of America,” it’s no exaggeration. The latest U.S. Census data shows that 90 percent of all businesses in the U.S. have fewer than 20 employees, and 99.9 percent have fewer than 500. Small businesses provide 55 percent of the jobs in the U.S., and that number hasn’t changed significantly in the past century. It’s safe to say the U.S. economy wouldn’t run without small businesses.

Unfortunately, for most of its life, Silicon Valley has failed to address this critical segment of the economy. Sure, there are the few exceptions: Square helps them take money without relying on cash; Expensify lets smaller companies act a bit bigger; Gusto (formerly ZenPayroll) helps them with benefits and payroll; Weebly helps them build a site. All these services add value to a small business’ bottom line.

How to deal with the rising threat of ransomware

How to deal with the rising threat of ransomware | Social  Buzzr | Scoop.it
Of all the money-making schemes hackers employ, the most prevalent is perhaps ransomware, a malware that is usually delivered through infected email attachments and hacked websites or websites featuring ads. Ransomware encrypts files on a user’s computer and renders them unusable until the victim ransoms the key for a specific amount of money.

Cybercriminals are making millions of dollars from ransomware. According to forecasts and assessments made by experts, the threat of ransomware will continue to rise in the months and years to come. Recently, several organizations were badly hit by ransomware, including a police department in Massachusetts, a church in Oregon, schools in South Carolina schools and several medical centers in California and Kentucky, one of which ended up paying the attackers 40 bitcoins (approximately $17,000).
