Predictions and trends for 2012 and 2012+ in sports marketing, social media, digital, entertainment.
What are the trends for 2012 and beyond ?

Many may well be in development. Many may have been tried and failed. Many will never make it past this collection of slides. But all of them, in my opinion, are better to have been considered and discounted, than to have never been thought or talked out loud.

Topics covered include:-
Social media beyond fans and likes (to engagement metrics)
Social media strategy, not tactics
The Social Olympics 2012 (London)
Facebook for things and collectors
Google + for brands
Predictive Filtering & Smart Suggestions
Google Goggles, layers, and augmented reality
2 screens

  1. 1. Social Media, Sports Marketing, Brand Entertainment Predictions for 2012 Jez Jowett
  2. 2. <ul><li>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 . </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>Social Media & Marketing Predictions 2012 and beyond Jez Jowett (@Jezmond) 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.
  3. 3. <ul><li>After heavy flirting with social media in 2011 brands will go beyond merely looking at likes and fans, and start caring more about engagement and community building. </li></ul><ul><li>The value of a meaningful relationship will be properly appreciated to build strong communities, CRM programs, loyalty and integrated transactions. </li></ul>Social Media ‘ Beyond Fans and Likes’ Thanks to creative commons http ://
  4. 4. <ul><li>Brands will commit to their social presence with dedicated teams, processes , resources and guidelines . Every company will have a Social Media Director . </li></ul><ul><li>There will be a SM strategy aligned for all stakeholders, not just for tactical campaigns. No longer here today and gone tomorrow, but always on, listening and responding. Especially at the weekends and when people are social. </li></ul>Social Media Strategy, not Tactics Thanks to creative commons
  5. 5. <ul><li>London 2012 will be swamped in social media. </li></ul><ul><li>More tweets, shares, likes, posts, comments, views will take place in 1 month, than ever before. </li></ul><ul><li>News, scandals, records & exclusives will all be read on Twitter first. Then the news channels and papers. Footage we aren’t supposed to see, we will. Thanks to Facebook, and YouTube. </li></ul><ul><li>There will be more likes and friends for London 2012 than any other sporting event, ever. </li></ul>The Social Olympics 2012 Thanks to creative commons
  6. 6. <ul><li>Your favourite objects will have their own profiles and history. Previous owners or similar collectors will connect to your objects, and build communities around physical products. </li></ul><ul><li>Expect your roland 303 to get messages, likes, friends, virtual meet ups and go dating. </li></ul>Facebook for things, objects and possessions Not just for people Thanks to creative commons /
  7. 7. <ul><li>2012 release of brand pages, and synchronization of search and marketing opportunities will tip Google+ into the mainstream, beyond the current early adopters. Acquisition strategy by Google will see Google+ make up ground on Facebook , but the market share will only impact APAC and BRIC where Facebook remains vulnerable. </li></ul>Google + for brands Not quite Facebook yet Thanks to creative commons
  8. 8. <ul><li>Behavioral diagnostics (geo location, most active time period, what you respond to, why, what you share and like, etc) will all create a positive big brother effect. </li></ul><ul><li>Not spying for the good of the corporation, but spying, cataloguing and suggesting for the benefit of you, and others. Stream management filters. A social media PA to manage your preferences and info streams to restrict info overload. </li></ul>Predictive Filtering & Smart Suggestions Thanks to creative commons http ://
  9. 9. <ul><li>We’ll hold up a device, and it will layer information (with drop down filters) onto the screen. Every thing within the zoom will have a story to tell. </li></ul><ul><li>Architects will have to become story tellers, thinking about the story they tell about their creation. </li></ul><ul><li>Wikipedia will allow others to modify and edit the information, crowd sourced and voted upon.

  10. 10. <ul><li>Everything we watch or listen to, will have an additional interactive feature. </li></ul><ul><li>Ability to connect with others, discuss, share, comment, adapt, or dive deeper into the storyline. </li></ul><ul><li>We’ll process more information and interact with more comment.. But they’ll be a backlash. We’ll switch the second screen off, and veg out alone. Retro TV’s (but with digital) will have a comeback. </li></ul>2 screens Thanks to creative commons http ://

  13. 13. <ul><li>Campaigns created in days and weeks, not months or years.

The next net millionaire will be a teenager, getting rich quick at the press of a button. </li></ul>Agile content, more relevant, less costly Thanks to creative commons http ://
