Both are fueled by a drive for progress, for pushing
boundaries and advancing the status quo. In these fields,
new trends are like a currency. Keeping ahead of the
next big trend means being aware of the next big seller
and allocating all the right resources – fashion design,
manufacturing, and marketing – for maximum impact.
Miss the hype and the next fashion season is bound to
hurt the bottom line.
New trends are also important to marketers because
owning a new trend is a way to differentiate in today’s
fast-moving digital landscape. It’s a way to stand out
from the pack by investing strategically in the right
approaches and technologies at the right time, then
reaping the benefits organically by leading where others
follow. Naturally, making these decisions requires a bit
of trial and error. Nobody has a magic crystal ball that
guarantees success. But as a rule of thumb, the companies
winning in digital marketing are the ones willing to
adopt new technologies while keeping an sharp.

Sometimes a perfect storm comes together to signal a radical shift or rebirth of an industry. But it’s not enough to say public relations is in flux or rapidly changing. It’s more impactful to discuss the evolution of the change, understand the potential gaps, and be early to capitalize on opportunities created by these gaps.
The path for change in the PR industry has been tumultuous. And understandably so. The irrationality of basing performance on vanity metrics is so ingrained in the profession that the left-brain, rational piece has been pushed aside. This has created a culture of estimating based on vanity metrics like AVE (ad value equivalency), leading to a dynamic where the C-suite craves that WSJ or TechCrunch story, yet doesn’t believe PR’s reporting on the value of that coverage. When everyone in the marketing stack is crunching numbers and showing real, tangible value, PR is holding onto air. Why keep setting the profession up for failure by perpetuating the cycle of abstr
Among all the trends and buzzwords currently shaking up the marketing industry, one concept is emerging as the one
to watch: customer experience (CX). Providing individual customers with the best possible experience is becoming the
top priority at the moment, even to the point where experience outshines product quality(!) as the main differentiator.
This is confirmed by a recent Gartner1
survey, in which 86 percent of participating companies listed customer experience
as the main factor for gaining a competitive advantage, compared with merely 36 percent in 2012.
It’s no secret that data-driven marketing (DDM) is top of mind for brand and agency executives. But what is surprising—shocking, in fact—is how vital first- and third-party information is for creative and execution strategies today. Case in point: 70% of senior marketing executives from brands, agencies and related industry segments say data-driven marketing is a core element of a majority of their campaigns, according to a new Oracle-Forbes Insights survey.
This full immersion in data and analytics—more than what many industry insiders may have realized—shows how quickly brands and agencies have recognized the potential benefits and rushed to replace outdated “gutfeel” decision making with quantifiable research. This was another recurring theme in the Oracle-Forbes Insights study, which found that marketing executives rely on advanced analytics to increase sales, attract new customers and expand brand awareness. In addition, 71% of respondents feel they effectively use it to identify
