2015: Three prioritiesFebruary 13, 2015
What should be the focus of marketing for your business this year?
Certainly not some which we have identified in past years. Because by now, ALL brands should have a responsive site with SEO, be engaging in conversation with clients / customers, stakeholders and the public on social media and be utilising appropriate video solutions or apps on mobile.
We believe that the three keys for 2015 are:
According to Forbes Insight, 59% of senior executives would rather watch video than read text.
More time online is now spent viewing content in videos, than on web pages. On YouTube alone, in every 24 hour period, hundreds of millions of hours of videos are viewed.
However, as 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute, even greater effectiveness is needed to attract and retain attention.
The 3 T’s of cutting edge video technology are: testimonials, time-lapse, tilt shift. Add drone aerials to these and you are talking about the latest techniques to generate engagement, viral promotion and business opportunities.
As we enter the lunar new year in 2015, all statistics are pointing to the rapid ascendancy of China. The country with one quarter of the world’s population is the world’s largest: energy consumer, electricity producer, coal producer and importer, natural gas producer, hydro-electric producer while maintains the highest GDP growth (for any large nation).
Because of its increasingly rapid development, the government is focusing on strategies to reduce the use of ‘dirty’ carbon fuels and embrace ‘clean’ renewable energy sources. The World Bank is supporting the China Renewable Energy Scale-Up Program Phase II, with a focus on efficiency improvement of wind farms, large-scale grid connected solar Photovoltaic (PV) farms and increased Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) manufacturing capacity.
China is not only the producer of the world’s consumer goods, but also becoming a massive market for products and services, as it develops the world’s largest consumer market and a corporate sector hungry for sophisticated ‘world-best practice’ systems and solutions.
User Generated Content (UGC)
Broadcast is a thing of the past .. and everyone has an opinion and a platform from which to spread it!
Communicating with stakeholders is something in which all brands should already be engaged. Social media is the ‘little black dress’ of every brand’s marketing wardrobe. However, how well is your brand managing your content and monitoring your campaigns? What tools are you using to monitor and ‘tweak’ your content for multiple messages, languages, countries, offers and campaigns?
Google Analytics can monitor your web traffic, but advanced tools are required for detailed analytics of whether one image or link is more effective than another, on a variety of social media platforms.
