    1. 1. All the predictions contained within this document, are my own ‘gazing out of window’ thoughts. Some of them may well be in development. Some of them may have been blogged about before. Some may never come true. But that’s the beauty of predictions . It is my opinion that at some point in the past, the present or the future, these will be considered, developed, or realized. Some present great opportunities for brands and consumers. Some scare the pants of me and I hope never happen. But better to have open ears and eyes, than shut ones. Social Media & Marketing Predictions 2012 and beyond Jez Jowett (@Jezmond) Global Digital Director @ Havas Sports & Entertainment (+ CakeGroup) All of these may actually become irrelevant if Nostradamus ' prophecies about the end of the world and Mayan Calendar happens on 21 December 2012, as speculated. Rather than worry about doom and gloom, I’ve always preferred to be optimistic, happy and have an opinion, to stimulate conversation and learn more.

    10. 10. Sports Subscriptions Thanks to creative commons <ul><ul><li>Sports federations will face a huge challenge in 2012: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ How to evolve their (traditional) broadcasting rights package, when many of their audience are no longer tuning into traditional broadcast channel, and in some countries don’t even own a TV anymore?” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>With more and more fans watching mainstream and niche sports on the web; on social networks; on mobile devices, successful federations will embrace the opportunity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The ability to watch catch up and real time sporting events, will increasingly be consumed on Facebook and YouTube.

    13. 13. Google Goggles, layers and AR <ul><li>We’ll hold up a device, and it will layer information (with drop down filters) onto the screen.

Pranav Mistry won ’ t. </li></ul>The year of mobile, again and again Thanks to Digital Ones
    16. 16. <ul><li>Groupon with a CSR angle. </li></ul><ul><li>Buy more together, save the world together. </li></ul><ul><li>Select the priorities that you and the community want to fix first. </li></ul>Social Commerce and Social Shopping (With CSR) Thanks to creative commons Digital Ones
    17. 17. Thanks to creative commons Digital Amnesty Day <ul><ul><li>1 day a year, everything will shut down, almost. Companies will ask all their staff to ‘switch off and unplug for 24 hours’. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>At first employees will be scared and confused. They will scratch their heads wondering how they can perform their job or task, without a digital connection. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>After 3 hours a smile will spread across their faces. It will be a beautiful day or real relationships and friendships the old fashioned way, face to face. We will re-discover social skills, beyond Facebook. We will put into perspective the role of digital. It will become a yearly event. </li></ul></ul>Digital Ones
    18. 18. <ul><li>Picture recognition on all mobiles will recognize the item, our location, and nearest stockists. </li></ul><ul><li>If we share it and like it, we’ll get it cheaper.

    23. 23. Thanks to creative commons PR and the role of Influencers <ul><ul><li>Influencer marketing will not just mean inviting a high profile celebrity to an event. Much of the influencer engagement and marketing will take place online. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Influencer identification tools will enable the PR industry to more accurately identify and engage with powerful online advocates.

    27. 27. Fan Sourced Singles Thanks to creative commons <ul><ul><li>Artists are increasingly asking their fans to not only suggest or create their album artwork, but to contribute to the actual audio that is released on the single or album. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>During 2012 we predict an increase in fan sourced audio. More and more fans will contribute to the official release, making the list of credits read like a who’s who of the ultimate fan club. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Brands and artists will embrace this collaborative opportunity. A fan will be supersaulted from his bedroom to the 02 or Wembley stage. Royalties will take this fan from a 1 bedroom apartment, to a beach front bungalow. </li></ul></ul>Content Ones
    28. 28. Thanks to creative commons Infographics and story telling through imagery <ul><ul><li>2011 saw an explosion in the use of Infographics to decipher an analytical story. More than 500,000 Infographics were created. 2012 will continue this trend, but with the addition of video Infographics. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Infographics will evolve with he ability to click through multiple layers of content, creating a rabbit hole of data visualization. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Agencies will create presentations leveraging these new formats. PowerPoint presentations will reduce in the number of slides, with more and more information being displayed creatively on one slide. </li></ul></ul>Content Ones
    29. 29. Thanks to creative commons Personalized Content <ul><ul><li>Content will be more customized for each target audience based upon location, profile, interests and their networks. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Smart filtering and customization will make content more shareable and rewarding. Sharing content across a consumer’s peer groups, will provide another layer of rewards for the consumer. Great content will continue to be viral and shareable. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>An increase in mobile content, delivered direct to a consumer’s handset will create connections all through the day, the night, and weekend. </li></ul></ul>Content Ones
