Musings About Online Marketing

10 Predictions for Online Marketing in 2010

with one comment

I’m really going out on a limb here, so wish me luck:

  1. Someone will declare SEO dead.  Again.
  2. Google will create more than 100 new products.  2 will be of any use to a significant number of people.
  3. Twitter will see a decline in post activity by human posters (in other words, more spamming, more people leaving for greener pastures).
  4. Hulu will begin charging for premium content.  No one will buy in.
  5. Hyperlocal newspapers begin to grow online, utilizing local bloggers and the strength of highly relevant content for their readers.
  6. Advertisers will continue moving more of their budgets to online.
  7. More companies are going to realize the value of social media, but not understand the necessity of engaging customers, not just throwing specials and sales announcements at them.
  8. Agencies will see significant growth in number of social media clients after numerous companies struggle to build a compelling online identity for themselves.
  9. The first pair of fashionable Augmented Reality glasses will become available.
  10. Bing will gain 5% of search share from Google.

Only halfway serious on these, but it will be fun to see if any of them become true.  😉
