4th annual digital prediction series is featuring the predictions of digital and marketing experts on the big changes awaiting us in the coming year. Looking at 2010 and observing the trends we’ve seen that year – we aim at figuring out what will be new in 2011. THE NEW NEXT initiative is focused not in what will happen in 2011 (as most predictions you find) but rather on the new trends emerging out of what we have seen earlier. What we have learned from working with different consumer domains is that one consumer behavior can develop into another behavior. People are looking for ways to display these behaviors. Technologies offer them such solutions. Influenced by consumer preferences as well as by external circumstances, new industries are opening up to answer consumer needs.
