As the media landscape becomes increasingly fragmented, marketers will need to become more nimble than ever, and start getting on the leading edge of trends, as opposed to waiting for them to emerge.” —Ian Schafer, Deep Focus<br />"The most effective digital platforms have shifted from “disruptive” to “productive” by providing a service or utility...[They] fundamentally change the approach from “how we reach our customers” to “how we make their lives better." —Ken Martin, Chief Creative Officer, and Ivan Todorov, CEO & CTO, Blitz<br />4<br />

Establish your company’s relevancy in these interactions by recognizing and supporting user merit systems in the social media space to transform the highest achievers into champions of your brand.<br />11<br />Game Principles Reflected in Digital Marketing <br />From: “Play Marketing: How The Principles of Gaming Are Changing The Conversation” <br />
