In a connected, social world marketing is everything and everything is marketing
Surveyed 250 marketing decision makers in the UK Intersting to see the differences – in that only 15 % were running a blog, but 7 % were experimenting with location based services1 in 10 are starting a community on their own website
So what does this lead to – 69 % of UK businesses plan to appoint a community manager during next year. More than a quarter of companies (28%) said they already have a social media or community manager in place and a further 41% expect to appoint one in the next 12 months. But the majority of those without these specialists in place are still turning to in-house marketing employees to manage social channels: 51% say current social media or community management is carried out by a marketing executive 21% by a PR executive 21% by the IT manager! And only 2% are run by external agencies And we know that this drives companies to invest further in their site.
And what does increase revenue?Surprise! People actually tend to want to buy from people. But since people are costly to scale, we should aim at the next-best thing: constantly engaging with current and potential customers in a personal(ized) interaction – when they want it, and in the channels they want it.This might seem overwhelming.....

You need to be fast here – the market is evolving and consumers are becoming definietly more savvy than before. The stats speaks for themselvesHowever, there is still hope for brands. Almost half of consumers (46%) would still try and visit a company’s website from their desktop if they couldn’t use it effectively on a mobile device. And 22% of respondents even indicated that they prefer using mobile apps to mobile web browsers, perhaps an indication of where the market may be heading in the future.People browse mobile to find direction, learn about brands, do research and social networking.And of course to check news.A funny fact is that 44 % of the respondents actually say that they use it when they need information or when they are bored!
It’s also interesting to note that at least 18% of marketers reported that 21-30% of their marketing budget is now allocated to mobile.
