2015 An Explosive Year For Visual Content

2015 An Explosive Year For Visual Content | Expertiential Design |
Content is and will be the king; it holds true for any medium – print, radio, TV or social media. One of the trends that we have witnessed in 2014 at Lighthouse Insights (LI) while reviewing social…

Top 9 Quotes from Digital executives, which will apply globally!

1. "Good #storytelling in 2015 will be all about what we see"


2. "We can expect a shift from pure play brand related content and more emphasis on #engagement, entertainment, infographics

and topical issues. The trick here will be to connect this communication with brand values and identity, creating shareable content."


3."Seeing is believing – that is how #content will be created and consumed in 2015 for digital properties."


4. Audience would see the magic of Art + Technology + #Gamification + User behavior and in future should expect Biometric data to be added giving users personalized storytelling."


5. "The internet was built on text and codes, but 2015 could potentially be the year where users shift to consuming and brands shift to establishing unique & original visual languages on #social #media."


6. " #Visual is a trend that’s going to influence how humans communicate in future. I find this ironical, considering man’s first attempt at communication was visual too… remember cave drawings? Who knows what the future holds."


7. "What matters most in visual content are things that relate to people’s lives. Emoting expressions on social media in the form of #stickers is going to empower the rest."


8. "In 2015, visual content will only become more evident as social media will get increasingly #mobile, with more #Apps for businesses and consumers to use."


9. "We have followed a pattern of evolution. It starts being text or information heavy, graduates to minimal visual representation, strikes a balance between the two and finally reaches the “A #picture is worth a thousand words” stage."

How do you see the evolution of visual content?

Which statement above do you like best?

The Technology Behind Mobile Research: Browsers vs. Apps

The Technology Behind Mobile Research: Browsers vs. Apps | Expertiential Design |

There’s a fault line running through mobile research technology that makes it not just a disruptive technology but one that is fragmenting research approaches. Forget mobile technology – we need to think ‘mobile technologies’.


At the many mobile research events, pioneering mobile researchers and technology providers jostle over whether the mobile app or the browser is best. According to the Confirmit Market Research Software Survey I am working on, there is no overall winner. Asked which mobile technology was considered ‘most viable’, 39% backed the mobile browser, against 18% favouring apps and 34% sitting on the fence, considering both technologies equally viable.


I am with the fence-sitters. Research just got a little more difficult, because there is unlikely ever to be a one-size-fits-all approach with mobile research in the way there was for telephone or online.


“Researchers need to think about who they are going to reach and why,” says Lumi Mobile’s Andy Lees. ”Is it to gather new data? Or to make more representative data collection in developed markets? Or to make it more convenient for people in developed markets? Or is it to reach people in emerging markets they cannot reach on a PC? In developed markets, are you trying to reach ‘accidentally mobile people’ or are you deliberately targeting mobile respondents?”

Point taken-it may matter. Sometimes, there is not a "best" way-there are many ways.
Russ Merz, Ph.D.'s comment, May 14, 2013 8:01 AM
I think it depends on why a marketer is using a mobile optimized website versus an app to deliver customer experiences. Some experiences may be better delivered via an app such as Starbucks customer loyalty program which works very smoothly via a smartphone. I doubt a mobile optimized website would work as well.

When it comes to mobile search, I share the same view: I am with the fence-sitters

App engagement is the new customer experience!

"In 2014 - 1 trillion push notifications were sent! But with turn-off rates approaching 60 percent, developers are having to dig deeper to reach users who already have their apps.

The challenge, of course, is that #app developers are continually pushing two heavy boulders up the mountain of mobile success: user acquisition and #mobile #engagement.

Get users and you have a shot at engaging them. Engage them and you have a shot at monetizing them. Monetize them, and you might be the new king of the new hill.

The reality is that as a result of our massive and rapid shift to mobile as the default way of interacting with the world, understanding and engaging customers via mobile is rapidly becoming the forefront of #customer #experience for both tiny mobile-only startups and massive 100-year-old enterprises — more so than email, phone, or in-person experiences."

How about the power of #social #media - not only can it drive engagement, but also facilitate new users, do you agree?

As @BrianSolis highlights:

"Companies must design #mobile-first and mobile-only #customer #journeys to prevent channel-hopping and multi-screening, thus increasing conversions"

Is your company making the commitment to mobile?

Nice deck with plenty of compelling stats. I would argue the mobile-only experience is already here for many people. Some by necessity and other sby choice. Ignore at your own risk.

Goodbye #Mobile #Apps, Hello Multi-Device #Experiences

Goodbye #Mobile #Apps, Hello Multi-Device #Experiences | Expertiential Design |
Your app runs in a little square.All the money you spend on developers, design teams, content production and infrastructure for your app essentially boils down to a little square. Sometimes it’s a bigger square. Sometimes it’s more of a rectangle. And sometimes your app is responsive and tries to adjust itself as the square changes shape.But in the end, your brand's communications still come down to that little square. Topic: Web CMS.

Michael looks at what the future holds.

The holy grail is "delivering what the customer is seeking at the right time, at the right place and on the desired platform - every time!"

#Data becomes the foundation to learn and engage, do you agree?

Many companies are positioning themselves to offer the entire solution, it's important not to forget the human element (#empathy) which plays a critical role in the end.
How will consumers react in 10 to 20 years looking back at our current #Mobile technology?
