Five hot topics that marketers must keep in mind as they execute throughout the year.
It's that time of year again when we all take a moment, pause, recharge, reflect, and take stock of the last year. Many use this time to be with family and friends; others use the time to strategize and plan how they will attack the new year and take no prisoners. I'd like to think everyone does a little of both. I do believe 2013 will be a pivotal year for the industry, and thought I would share a few hot topics that everyone needs to keep in mind as they execute throughout the year.
2013 promises to be an exciting year in our industry. I see video, mobile, and display converging, wrapped in audience data, and clients executing cohesive campaigns globally. This is a big leap and will require new thinking and new ways of approaching and managing clients. Have a great year!
