SAN DIEGO, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Many of the digital marketing trends 2013 will likely see are marketing ideas or strategies that have been successful in the past, but with a new twist that will make these ideas and strategies even more successful in the present and in the future. The digital marketing landscape has changed significantly in the past few years, and some of the more apparent factors for this change are social networking sites, such as Twitter, Facebook and more recently Pinterest. However, there are other less apparent factors that are influencing the way that digital marketers operate and how consumers find and share information.
Here are a few of the digital marketing trends 2013 will likely see an increase in.
Mobile Marketing – Mobile marketing is fast becoming one of the hottest digital marketing trends in 2013. The number of people who bought smart phones and other mobile devices last year far outnumber those who bought new computers. The sheer volume of mobile devices makes mobile marketing a real no-brainer for those who want to make big impact with their marketing efforts.
Creating content that is mobile device friendly and versions of websites that can be viewed from a mobile phone is a great way to take advantage of this mobile technology. Keeping in touch with clients and customers with customized IM ad campaigns can also be an effective mobile marketing strategy.
There are undoubtedly many more ways that mobile marketing can be used to promote a business, brand or product. This side of the digital marketing world is still relatively new, so there is a lot of room for growth and those that are quick to stake out a corner in the market will likely be very successful in the near future.
Dynamic Content – Dynamic content can enable marketers to tailor their marketing efforts to each individual visitor to the website. This is possible by collecting data about each visitor as they navigate through the site. On subsequent visits, the website can pull up content or products that the visitor may be interested in, as determined by the algorithm that processes the data collected from their previous visits.
This is seen mostly on websites like Amazon.com, where the "Recommended For You" feature is almost uncanny in the way it selects book choices. It does this based on the past searches and purchases of the users. Other businesses can use this technology on their own websites to help tailor the content to the interests of each user. There are a number of programs available that enable this feature; one well known one that customizes advertisements is AdSense, which has a "remarket" feature.
Creating Content That Brings Value – Creating content that is focused on providing value to the reader or user is also something that is taking on new importance. This is more of a mindset change than a whole new strategy. Everyone knows that the internet is driven by content, and up until recently most marketers have been creating that content with the intent of making it more visible to Google and other search engines.
While on page SEO is still important, it is taking more of a back seat to the actual quality of the content. Marketers are realizing that the best way to see results isn't to try to trick Google into giving the page a higher page rank, but to bring value to the readers that they will in turn want to share and recommend to others. This sharing is now more important thanks to social websites that allow a user to share a link to an article with just a click of a button.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected.

And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
