  1. 1. Online marketing trends! Joaquin Hermoso |! Joaquin Hermoso |!
  2. 2. Introduction! In Spain brands are still mostly using digital as a mere new channel to communicate to consumers –just like TV or radio.! But consumers are using digital beyond a new channel; for them itʼs a persistent layer of their daily lives. All media are now digital and all experiences can be digital too. And brands who realize this and use the digital media to behave like one more actor, humble and providing useful experiences and information and surprising consumers, will find a great opportunity in the new digital era.! Joaquin Hermoso |!
  3. 3. Introduction! The coming years are shaping up to be an exciting time for consumers and brands alike.! Consumers will have access to more relevant and timely information, and ! Brands will be better informed and! empowered to develop the rich experiences that establish and nurture strong! relationships with consumers.! Joaquin Hermoso |!

  6. 6. Moxieʼs Top Ten! Every year, Moxie compiles a Top Ten List exploring the trends impacting the way consumers engage in the digital space and the way businesses function there.! To get insight into where digital marketing is headed, we plant ourselves at the intersection of cultural change, technological progress and our clientsʼ business goals. This position gives us the perspective we need to develop a kind of roadmap for marketers; a guide for navigating the evershifting digital landscape. ! Cultural change Technological progress Business Goals Joaquin Hermoso |!
  7. 7. Moxieʼs Top Ten! Before looking into the future, letʼs reflect on two key digital developments from 2012-2013 that will profoundly impact the way the future unfolds:! 1)! Mobile has arrived. Mobile has gone mainstream in Spain, with 63% of all mobiles being Smartphones and the highest Smartphone penetration in the EU in 2012. This sets the stage for its continued evolution, with greater emphasis on location-based technology, near-field communications and even mobile sensors. Thanks to Smartphones, users are connected 24/7 and their digital and social lives are more active than ever. ! 63,2% of all mobiles in Spain are Smartphones! 63%! Spain is the 1st EU country in Smartphone penetrarion! it 2)! Big data has finally gotten the respect successfully deserves. Businesses have actively and begun to harness the data consumers leave behind. And this is only the beginning There is a huge opportunity at brands finding innovative ways to make use of interest data (how people are linked to interests), social data (how people are linked to each other) and purchase data (how people are linked to purchases).!

  8. 8. 1. Native advertising! Native advertising may announce the death of traditional, interruptive media. In the digital world we ought to develop brand creative in a format “natural to the media channel being used.! •  Native advertising such as paid search results in Google, Facebook sponsored stories and Tweeterʼs promoted tweets will spill into more social and emerging platforms.!  There is a great opportunity for creative native advertising solutions that tap into the large, engaged audiences of networks like FB, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Mi Nube, etc.!  Native advertising solves the conflict between user experience and connecting with a large audience; but brands have to align their ads with the platform in appearance and experience. A content that resonates on Twitter is not the same that works on FB or Tumblr. ! Aggressive messaging is unwelcome. But consumers allow brands to change their behaviours and conform to the new digital reality.! Brands will require a deeper understanding of the digital networks. Next years will see an increase in native advertising content over Smartphone Apps, status updates, photos and videos.! Source: Moxie. The 2013 Perspective: Ten trends changing the digital landscape! Joaquin Hermoso |!
  9. 9. 2. Remote possibilities! Wireless communication between devices is making it possible for our mobiles to act as remote controls for everything from TVs to cars.! •  In the coming years, brands will need to begin exploring ways to tap into the remote control lifestyle. For some companies, this means looking at how Internet connectivity can be integrated into existing products or wrapped into an app experience. Other brands will need to observe how connected devices change the purchase path to make shopping a “remote” experience that allows consumers to solve problems before they walk into the store.! •  Meanwhile, all brands will benefit from the mobile device acting as a third screen. Marrying TV and mobile into a unified experience across devices can result in more engaging marketing campaigns. By developing robust multi-screen marketing experiences, brands and advertisers will be able to tap into the remote control trend without breaking the bank on new product development.! The Wii U is a handheld gaming console with a GamePad controller, touch screen display, HD graphics, NFC capabilities and more. Nest is a programmable thermostat that automatically adjusts the temperature according to the userʼs schedule, and can be accessed via mobile.

  10. 10. 3. Niche Apps (1/2)! The idea of the “long tail” is applied to the apps market. Consumers of varied hobbies, interests and tastes have pursued personal portfolios of apps that can meet essentially every need.! •  Pros: Fortunately for brands, these apps are driving increased time spent with mobile media. ! •  Cons: Unfortunately, the fragmentation raises barriers to reaching scale and mobile advertising effectiveness.! Brands will be, however, able to take multiple approaches to reaching niche app audiences in coming years." Possible approaches:! Untappd is a social app that allows users to share the type of beer theyʼre drinking and where theyʼre drinking it. Users unlock badges and deals as they explore new beers and locations." 1) Identify emerging leaders in the niche app space to build a closer connection to a new audience. Beer marketers are a great example. They have pursued audiences via apps like Untappd and Pintley, which are “check in” apps that track the different beers the user has tried. Breweries can develop badges and incentivize trial through the points system in these apps. ! Source: Moxie. The 2013 Perspective: Ten trends changing the digital landscape! Joaquin Hermoso |!
  11. 11. 3. Niche Apps (2/2)! Possible approaches:! 2) Work with platforms rather than with niche apps & give discounts and benefits to consumers: An example of a success story in the the US is Cellfire, a company that distributes loyalty card cupons through its own apps. It also opens their API so other shopper apps can deliver deals to their smaller audiences. ! !In Madrid, Danone recently launched a Campaign in Metro station Callao to teach consumers how to get cupons and discounts on Danone products through their App “Alimenta Sonrisas”.! Brands will need to keep an eye on the long tail of mobile communities in the same way theyʼve monitored social networks in the past. Understanding these emerging digital behaviors will give businesses an upper hand in adjusting to consumer demands for products and services in the years ahead.! Consumers will be less inclined to show off their latest Apps discoveries as in previous years; they will care most about what the app can really do for them. Apps that provide richer, deeper experiences or information will draw users because they provide something new within the context of the familiar.! Source: Moxie.

Some growing video trends: !  Personalized video: Online video is a test bed for experimenting with the promise of personalized and more engaging video creative. The same data-driven approach that has produced dynamic banner advertising is becoming realistic for online video advertising as well. Companies like Eyeview are driving innovation in dynamic, personalized video advertising by combining first party, third party and social data to tailor messages to individual viewers at scale.!  Cross-platform applications: Companies like TapAd are making it possible to track viewer exposure to ads across phones, laptops, and connected TVs.

  13. 13. 4. More & better video (2/2)!  Interactive video: In coming years brands will experiment with fully interactive features, combined with an industry-wide standard that can guarantee scalable reach of interactive video advertisements. Interactive video standards are also driving new methods of engaging with video.

Consumers want the right information at the right time – and thatʼs where consumers and businesses can help each other out. !  On one hand, brands will need to make sure they are capturing and applying data to expand their market reach.!   On the other hand, companies will have to be intelligent o how they use this data. They must avoid abusing the data and using it to create messaging that angers consumers.! •  Brands will seek into opportunities to use the retailersʼ usefull data (for example from online supermarkets or other stores with a target market aligned to CCC brands). As a result some retailers will increasingly become key partners for brands in the digital marketing space. Thus the success story of Amazon could be replicated to other sector (such as beer or FMCG) as online purchasing grows in the Cannary Islands; to help brands taking the leap in communicating effectively to prospects. ! •  Open access to reliable purchase data will alter the way agencies, brands and publishers approach consumer targeting.!

M AZ is a digital publishing platform that allows publishers to create their own iPad apps. With the Clippings feature, readers can clip any digital content and share directly to Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest." In order to benefit from this trend, brands will need to take two approaches:! •  They must expand their definition of “digital influencer” beyond bloggers and active Twitter users. There will be new social platforms that might have big impact on consumers (YouTube, Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest, have already big impact in some countries).

Content is liquid and the touch point with consumer moves from one screen to another. Tablets, smartphones, PC, smart TV... the new shopper owns the decision of where and when consume the content. A unique campaign based in detailing the strengths and values, the storytelling of their products must be adapted and explained properly to new audiences across screens.
