I’ve never done one of the semi-mandatory annual trends prediction posts that greet every new year, and had no plans to start now. Which is probably a good thing, considering it’s now February already. But I thought it might still be useful to highlight the conceptual areas that I think hold the most promise for continuing exploration, innovation and creativity in 2011. I thought it would help me frame up the year, and if nothing else serve as a useful snapshot in time about what I’m excited about.

BEST GLOBAL BRANDS 2010: Apple fails to break into top flight BEST GLOBAL BRANDS 2010: Apple fails to break into top flight The company, headed by Steve Jobs, boosted its brand through carefully controlled messaging and an endless wave of buzz surrounding new product launches, but somewhat surprisingly failed to make the top 10. It has recently taken a knock in public perception due to problems with reception encountered by its iPhone 4 handset, which led to the offer of a free rubber casing for those who were dissatisfied with their purchase. The brand barometer placed soft drinks manufacturer Coca-Cola as its top global brand, with technology brand IBM taking second place, Microsoft third and Google fourth. Another technology company, Hewlett-Packard, broke into the top ten for the first time as the company had "increased brand value under a new business model and brand platform", according to Interbrand.
Are Twitter Followers Better Than Facebook Fans? Marketers looking to push out the most effective messages to opt-in recipients must understand how audiences differ across channels and what causes them to connect with brands. Marketing venues that seem similar may differ strongly if their users have different needs and motivations. According to the final edition of ExactTarget’s “Subscribers, Fans and Followers” report, the differences between email, Facebook and Twitter also include their influence on customer loyalty. Daily Twitter users who followed a brand were more than twice as likely as daily Facebook users who “liked” a brand to say they were more likely to purchase from the brand after becoming a social media follower.

Global Trends in Healthy Eating Eating healthy is a goal for most people, but often times a difficult one to regularly achieve. Work and family responsibilities often make time scarce, and it is easier to go out to restaurants or prepare ready-made meals at home. The recent recession also prompted many to search for value, and sometimes healthy options such as organic produce and other environmental considerations took a back seat as they are oftentimes considered more expensive than “standard” products. The Nielsen Company gauged the world’s view of healthy eating, organics and other related issues earlier this year as part of a global online survey, polling more than 27,000 consumers in 55 markets from Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East/Africa (consisting of countries from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, Egypt and South Africa), North America and Latin America. The views were diverse, but at the very least, most people want to do right when it comes to the foods they consume. Global Trends in Healthy Eating
Marketers Educate via Video Video Content Shared Widely Data from “Social Media Usage, Attitudes and Measurability” indicates that 61% of marketers use video content on their own websites, while another 56% use video content on third-party video-sharing sites. This indicates that a majority of marketers are willing to sacrifice some measure of control over their video content distribution and management in order to reach as wide an audience as possible. Marketers also show limited openness to different video platforms.

The State Of Mobile Commerce In Europe I booked my first hotel night via a mobile device a year ago. I didn’t even think about the fact that it would be considered an “mCommerce” transaction, as I simply booked it directly on the hotel group’s Web site via the browser of my mobile phone. The site wasn’t actually optimized for mobile devices, but it was possible to enter my credit card details via a secure Web transaction. That’s not ideal, so I wonder how many mobile transactions that firm has missed simply because it doesn’t provide a compelling user experience. European mobile commerce is still at an early stage.
