Think about Michael Jackson reading out the menu at Cafe 80’s in the future – How will brands/celeb advertise using these upcoming prototype innovations.
Future of Advertising Digital Marketing
– “The 24×7 newsroom blueprint for advertising” – brands will have to adopt characteristics of the real-time, data-driven newsroom; prolific, nimble and audience-centric. Ad agencies and creative departments will need to work more like a news organization, constantly adapting existing material and creating new content across all media.
– “Prepare for the on-demand age of marketing” – In this digital age consumer experience will need to be personalised in real time and anywhere
– “’Glocal’ builds on unity of thought with diversity in execution” (local and global) – Consumers worldwide are becoming increasingly identifiable as what author calls “Omniculturals” (Steve Stoute) — people who define themselves more by their lifestyles and economic and educational attainment than by their race or ethnicity.
– “Act like a conductor to orchestrate the silos in communication” – To be effective, you have to deliver the message through all touch points (each one of them is really represented by a different type of industry). You need a new type of managerial role, which is called a current network orchestrator.
– “Redefining advertising objectives beyond DAGMAR” – What has largely been ignored till now, is gaining prominence – it is about positive social impact. Jim Stengel, the former CMO of P&G in his book “Grow” writes that companies with a positive social impact out-perform by almost 4 to 1 the S&P 500.
– “Leverage the power of big data and analytics to focus on a single consumer “ – Advanced analytics will be able to sense interactions and respond in real-time with content tailored to every customer “touch.” NFC chips in phones, as well as smart tags that can go on any object will open up an “Internet of things”.
– “Consumer data ‘lockers’ turning to currency online” – Consumers could create a private secure data vault on their profile; lockers with food preferences, next vacation, coffee order, home service providers, bank accounts, and so on. “Personal data lockers” will give Internet users a degree of control over their online personal data that may well transform it into “a kind of online currency.” -JR Smith, AVG Technology (http://blogs.economictimes.indiatimes.
How TV advertising will change in next decade
– Adoption of VoD, IPG, and PVRs will shift viewing from linear broadcasts on a TV screen to a multiscreen, multidevice, multimodal, on-my-schedule, usercontrolled experience.
– Ads Will Get Personal :“Addressability” not only will become common, but will evolve from targeting an entire segment with one piece of advertising creative to further segmenting the audience and serving differentiated pieces of advertising creative based on the audience’s characteristics. This personalization will manifest itself in different advertising spots appearing for different users, and in tailored product placement.
– Don’t Just Watch, Get Involved: Ad personalization will take many different forms, leading to greater user involvement.
– Is It Real or Is It Television?: Brands will explore many senses in addition to audio and visual. Haptics, smell, and even taste will be used in advertising. With the proliferation of 3D printers, we will be able to print a model of a new car while haptic feedback will allow us to experience driving it on a mountain road (http://www.cisco.com/web/about/ac79/docs/sp/Future-of-TV_Advertising.pdf)
Mobile Advertising– Mobile advertising in 2020 will be mobile directed advertising which is selected and chosen by the individuals themselves.
– It is the individual who will be the pivotal player in the mobile advertising domain of the future and the mobile device will be a technological representation of them.
– The mobile phone will transform from being seen as a new personalized channel to receive advertisements on; to a device which will orchestrate where, when and how selected advertiser’s information will be delivered.
– Successful brands in 2020 will be those which collaborate with individuals, include them in communities and rating of their products or services.
Marketing predictions for 2020 – http://www.cmo.com/content/cmo-com/home/slide-shows/slide-show-the-cmos-world-in-2020.html
1. “The Internet of Things: How the next evolution of the internet is changing everything”, Cisco White Paper April 2011 http://www.cisco.com/web/about/ac79/docs/innov/IoT_IBSG_0411FINAL.pdf – IoT is the point in time when more things / objects are connected to the internet than people. IoT ‘born’ in 2008-2009 and by 2020, here will be 50 billion things connected to the internet – everything from your body, car, alarm clock and even cows. There is a nice infographic in this white paper showing the growth of population and connected devices over time. NB. IBM have said 1 trillion connected devices by 2015 so Cisco may be underestimating.
Current limitations: battery life, requirement of unique IP address for all sensors (IPv6 awaited)
2. “Internet of Things: A vision, architectural elements, and future directions” J Gubbi, R Buyya, S Marusic M Palaniswami – http://www.buyya.com/papers/Internet-of-Things-Vision-Future2013.pdf
Includes a roadmap of technological developments (fig 9). By 2020, we will see applications evolve to include: Energy harvesting and recycling, intelligent analytics, wireless power (so no batteries required for sensors), automatically driven vehicles!
3. “Internet of Things in 2020” European Commission Information Society and Media 2008 – Bit old but some interesting thoughts about the future…
2015 – 2020: Extrapolation of current trends – Integrated appliances, smart transportation, semi intelligent objects,
2015 – 2020: New trends requiring further research : smart living, in vivo health, automated healthcare
IoT: the point in time when more things were connected to the internet than people (2008)
By 2020, 50 billion things will be connected to the internet
– everything from your body, car, alarm clock and even cows.
Applications will evolve to include: Integrated appliances, energy harvesting and recycling, intelligent analytics, wireless power, automatically driven vehicles and automated healthcare IoT, a network of networks
Current limitations: battery life, requirement of unique IP address for all sensors

Brands: Highlighted by David
● CES 2020 –
● seamless product innovations
● Innovative Advertising Campaigns
● This basic storyline
● Snippets/pockets to fill(e.g
● Interacting with technology will be more like having a conversation and typing queries into a box will be all but obsolete. Instead of keyboards, we’ll have microphones and speakers in the ceiling recording conversations and giving answers to direct questions.
● Voice-activated network would tie together control of all our devices. We might, for example, tell the AI in our ceiling to turn on the porch light, pull up a show on TV, and pre-heat the oven.
● M2M (machine2machine) data will be responsible for 40% of all data by 2020.
● From 2005 to 2020, the digital universe will grow by a factor of 300, from 130 exabytes to 40,000 exabytes, or 40 trillion gigabytes (more than 5,200 gigabytes for every man, woman, and child in 2020).
● From now until 2020, the digital universe will about double every two years.
● The “infrastructure” of the digital universe and telecommunications will grow by 40% between 2012 and 2020. As a result, the investment per gigabyte (GB) during that same period will drop from $2.00 to $0.20.
● Between 2012 and 2020, emerging markets’ share of the expanding digital universe will grow from 36% to 62%.
● Only a tiny fraction of the digital universe has been explored for analytic value. IDC estimates that by 2020, as much as 33% of the digital universe will contain information that might be valuable if analyzed.
● 200 million devices connected in 2000
● 8.7 billion devices connected in 2012
● 15 billion devices connected by 2015
● 75 billion devices connected by 2020
Devices per person

I recently came across an article about Rand Fishkin stepping down as CEO of Moz to focus on other areas of the business. Earlier in the year, I sat with a team member discussing the industry as we were trying to identify a good match for one of the products we were working on. So we were going through the Who, What, Where, Hook, Trend process in order to build a better picture of who his audience really is. This is a vital part in any good prospecting or Lead Generation exercise. Anyways, so the news came out that he was stepping down, and I decided to celebrate his time as CEO at Moz, look forward to what hes gonna do next and importantly the impact that his #Content #Marketing #Manifesto has had. Thats the #bottomline cuz @randfish #saidso
Content Marketing Manifesto Legacy
“If there’s any one piece of content that has truly transformed my thinking about blogging in 2012, it’s Rand Fishkin’s Content Marketing Manifesto.” – Leo Widrich
After seeing his slidedeck before in 2012, I realised that a part of BufferApps success had been its transparency, its openness to be moulded and its ability to listen and change to the market. Back in 2012 the Buffer App Team completely changed the direction and content of their blog.
“We went from writing articles ”relevant to current customers,” to writing content ”relevant to anyone who interacts with potential customers.” – Leo Widrich
Since then, alot has happened with BufferApp and you should also note that they embrace change and are not afraid to break new ground … HARD!
When presented with a problem, there is an intuitive solution that comes to mind for Don Draper, its normally the most immediate and easiest resolve to this problem. But for better engagement and group buy in, what normally happens is that he taps into the observations, perceptions & memories of Richard (Dick) Whitman and reveals them. We actually see two different characters that you really get to know while watching the series MadMen.
Don Draper and Richard Whitman are clearly identifiable, they have their own beliefs, they make choices. As shown in this clip, both a #system1 and a #system2 thought process is revealed during this Hersey pitch. You can see in just under 4 minutes the audience experiences an unexpected joy or inspiration, followed closely with the painful experiences and very similar automatic association of painful tales of Richard Whitmans childhood.
The biggest lesson that can be learned from the Hershey’s pitch is that “Everyone has their own story to tell”. That is what makes us human and this is what connects us. Look into the statistics, look at the sources where the most engagement comes from, look at what types of conversations and what types of content is being shared right now. What is the context of this human message or affection? If your delivering high quality content, then this lowers the barrier to entry. Actually being able to identify the context in which decisions, conversations and observations are made by your audiences/users, will drive systematic improvements.
Like Pardot have shown in this infographic, there are ‘innovations’ in Marketing Automation. These technologies are in the marketplace to support the large corporations traditional Models. Which is fine, because the budgets that are being spent doing the same thing that has always been done, are normally greenlit by Fat Hippos that are disconnected customers. But imagination and creativity cannot be plotted on any graph.
The landscape has changed and the way we do business must also change. Is it possible that shifting focus to listening and collaborating with the customer, will have the biggest effect? Consider the new ways in which people make decisions about consuming information, where to spend and which brands are having most success? Engagement comes from an unexpected insight. A surprise.
What is very clear from the clip and infographic is that the MadMen vs MathMen both embrace their faults. But todays audiences and users expect more. They will give objections, new data forms or open responses in order to make improvements.
Brands just need to listen. Show that they are open to learn lessons from audiences, without constantly just broadcasting or selling at them. Is this what they deem as the collaborative economy? Should we be shutting the hell up and first simply listening, then building processes that embrace this sharing environment where “Everyone has their own story to tell” ?
I want you to imagine this wonderful thing. Just flash dream of the last time you got together with your family to relax in the garden or go to the beach. Ever taken a polaroid to capture thesemoments and keep them with you? Custom thumbnails in YouTube are abit like that, right? Maybe not: Have you ever seen on YouTube Short-form? Branded Web Series? or Long-Form season like House of Cards. Is it for casual entertainment, special interest, docs or investigative / reports. Are the topics mainly music videos, fashion, magic, comedy, drama or Cats? #allthecats
Do you want to know the reasons why you love a particular piece of Media, like Walt Disneys Fantasia, as featured above … Or the great work that Vice Media deliver? Do you even care if you never know? Is part of the fun for the audience in searching/finding these storytellers, Tales of Unicorns and strange places? Is it even something that anyone really even worries about it? That depends, Are you buying or selling? Its a Nexus point of Commerce & Art.
The exciting thing, is that we all can explore this new form of distribution.
“We demonstrated that we have learned the lesson that the music industry didn’t learn — give people what they want, when they want it, in the form they want it in, at a reasonable price, and they’ll more likely pay for it. “
Audience wants the control – let them decide! Give Users Control, What They Want, When They Want It
The Internet has SPOKEN! Tweets, Vine, Fan Pages … YES, The Internet, in fact does exactly, what ever it wants. Just give your audiences control.
“I Would’nt Worry About it! – said a Jjyrating Hippo
Dont fake it, like those fat incompetent Jjyrating Hippos. Also, and most importantly, dont feed the Hippos. They are just plain fat. This is now a nexus of commerce & Art. Learn from your journey. Push your boundaries. All of Us are Responsible for Ensuring We Live our Values. You question actions inconsistent with our values. That is part of the Courage value. Akin to the honor code pledge: “I will not lie, nor cheat, nor steal,nor tolerate those who do”
All the points go to you, if you have read this far and resisted that urge to click off & YouTube or Netflix: Fantasia, Vice Media or hippos. Because you are awesome, please share, tweet, like & favorite. Heres a Magic Cat Vine for your troubles. 🙂
Cat Beardage is a wonderful example of narration that demands engagement. Below, I outline simple tips for anyone crafting engaging content, digital experiences & contributing to ongoing conversations. In this post, lets first agree that Content Marketing is important for 2014. And Cats … well of course cats, because they’re Magical … Right? [Click Bait]
Content Strategists and User Experience Consultants in both B2B & B2C are scrambling to get ahead on forecasting – The Future of Marketing 2014. The ‘What does the Future hold’ books and “Over 9,000 ways to win at Social Media Marketing … ” lists are being touted as they excitedly return from the holidays. As if to find meaning in what the New Year brings, they are planning, testing and bench-marking new standards, based on warm fuzzy feelings of what has always worked and what they are comfortable with.
Little Fat Bitches believe its time to deliver their next batch of puppies.
Yes, basically, for those Little Fat Bitches, they believe that its time to deliver their next batch of puppies. NO! No-one wants to see the same shit repackaged from last year, because the context has changed. Consider; Snapchat gets MoMoney from Investors. After Facebook tries to buy them. When there is considered to be more Mobile Devices Than PCs for First Time – Ever! Shouldn’t everyone be thinking about how we now use Facebook, Linked in or Twitter? We could argue cats & dogs all day about which channels are best suited to which content. The fact is that the audience of new urbanists, millenials and even old school MySpace-ers are no longer all in one place for you to shout at. This is now the Age of Context: mobile, location, sensors and soon we will suddenly be wearing it, if we are not careful.
Oh Shit -wheres my charger? Look, I cant leave without my mobile char … oh here it is.
Battery permitting, the rapid rise of apps, internet of things, wearables and messaging technologies mean we hold Twitter, Snap Chat, Vine, Google+, Facebook and Keek close to our hearts all day long.
Within six months, Vine has surpassed any other app by a long margin. The magical part in the below Cat Vine is not that it has branded product placement or that it features a well known film. This is a Magic Cat Vine because it is well crafted by the Storyteller. Your Content must be deeply linked to your strategy, create an Emotional Connection, whilst also being contagious, malleable & uncontrollable.
Go ahead and involve your audience, ask them a question – engage with them about the content, encourage debate or conversation, by lovingly using #MagicCatVine. If you allow your content to be accessible to everyone, let it be inherently mobile and allow the audience to have a voice/conversation with you – then that’s where the goodness is at. …. Part 2 to Follow #AllThereIs [2/2]
It might seem crazy what I’m about to say … A slow roll StediCam tracking shot in L.A with a song overlaid. That is the HOW in the story. Now for the WHAT? The Video will show dancers/singers being happy. OK, that’s it, easy right? Yes … kind of … here is my take on how the Internet was won.
If you do the Math: 24 hours x 60 mins = 1440 mins of Branded Content. Now lets put this in context – The song lasts about 4 mins for each song clip, which means over 450 people are involved in this “World First 24 Hour Music Video” In addition, layer in the futuristic time travelling digital dial player for anyone to select different times of the day and suddenly travel in time and this musical portal will link seamlessly to the song. The internet was won. #allthepoints
Is this the begining of realtime video entertainment and content delivery? Growth Hacking of this kind can be argued as Better or Worse than whats currently on offer. Imagine 24 hour News was accessible from Google Glass – it could be equally a 24 hour broadcast of the Individual and their life.
Whether you are walking, running, skiing , driving or other, imagine letting the world see how you are feeling at any given time. Is this just hype or is this a monumental change in the relationship between Intertainers and their already established audience?
The future of Intertainment
Take Google Glass for example – They continually improve and invite interactions with users/audiences to report mistakes when they find them [Not too dissimilar to ‘Sharing a moment’ from this video]. Now imagine a world where we are invited to contribute and collaborate to tell a continual story.
A little more Content Creation & Collaboration please
Over 400 extras appear alongside Pharrell Williams in the 24hoursofhappy.com video, including several celebrities. What makes you listen to and watch it over and over again? ( … I’ve watched it for about an hour so far)
Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ is wonderful, I think http://t.co/R7WHFSLEN8. I hope you are all having good holidays. Thank you for our job. CM
… thats the exploratory nature of this content – Magic Johnson, Steve Carrell, Jamie Foxx and Jimmy Kimmel and many fantastic dancers. All of them hand off to one another as the song continues in a loop. Williams appears in the video 24 times, at the top of every hour, and then followed by 14 additional performances in the same hour.
Each person WILL want to browse and compare different moments in the song. Everyone can pause, rewind, fast forward and share these moments to your social network – just choose from the 24 hours of content. But what is clear here is that Pharrell has broken new ground and you will most likely become a Pharrell Williams advocate, enjoy the search through time, whether or not you find something worth sharing)
These are experiences, feelings and moments that really capture Happyness very well 🙂 *Goes to find the Jimmy Kimmel version* HAPPY! … Clap along if you FEEL that happyness is the truth.
