Third, eventually local retailers could sell products to consumers outside the retailers’ immediate area, and thus expand their business. Read full analysis here!

WHAT’S HAPPENING IN MOBILE?

As mobile engagement continues to grow, another major milestone occurred just this past month—consumers now spend more than half of their digital consumption time on mobile apps, leaving us without any doubt that we are currently living in an app-dominated digital world. Yet, although there has been a shift from web browser to app, which coincided with the shift from desktop to mobile, certain media properties continue to attract an inordinate size of their mobile traffic via the browser. Click here to know Why Does a User Visit the App vs. the Website and which mobile strategy is best for you?

Report: there are multiple studies that have reported mobile devices drive more than 50 percent of internet time. Digital metrics firm comScore now says that mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) “accounted for 60 percent of total digital media time spent” in May.

WHAT’S HAPPENING IN SOCIAL?

Twitter-
One of the best ways to follow events as they unfold is through real-time videos on Twitter. As Twitter continues to invest in the video, it’s important for it to provide tools that make it easy for TV broadcasters, businesses, and event producers to share high-quality videos. To that end, Twitter agreed to acquire SnappyTV. SnappyTV’s platform for live clipping, editing, and distribution is already widely used by brands and our media partners to share video clips on Twitter, both organically and via Twitter Amplify.

Facebook-

What’s Facebook’s plan for Web video advertising? That was the intriguing question being pondered in the online ad community last month as the social networking giant announced a deal to acquire LiveRail, an advertising technology firm that helps media companies make more money on Web video ads. Among the theories being bandied about is that Facebook wants to find a way to push its own social video ads out across the Web, or that Facebook could launch a video ad exchange to match Google’s recent move in that direction.  Read more!

Facebook to start interest-based advertising! Starting soon in the US, Facebook will also include information from some of the websites and apps you use. Let’s say that you’re thinking about buying a new TV, and you start researching TVs on the web and in mobile apps. Facebook may show you ads for deals on a TV to help you get the best price or other brands to consider. See how ads work n Facebook?

Facebook announces an improvement to how they rank the videos people and Pages are uploading directly to Facebook. Their goal is to better understand what videos people are interested in watching, so that relevant videos appear more prominently in News Feed. The improvement made considers whether someone has watched a video and for how long they watched it. Facebook is adding that to the factors considered previously, which included likes, comments and shares. This change will affect all videos uploaded directly to Facebook. Read More!

WHAT’S HAPPENING IN ANALYTICS?

To make analysis of brand and generic performance as easy as possible, Google Analytics introduced a new feature which automatically identifies brand-aware paid search clicks tracked in Google Analytics. The team will use a combination of signals (including the clickthrough-rate, text string, domain name and others) to identify query terms which show awareness of your brand.  You can review their suggested brand terms and then accept or decline each of them. It’s also easy to add additional brand terms that they missed. Check the official announcement!

To make it easier to find services and apps that are important to your business, Google Analytics re-launched the App Gallery as the Partner Gallery, the new destination to find partners and review their offerings. The Partner Gallery includes new features and improvements:

  • A brand new look and layout.
  • A combined view of both services and apps, so you don’t need to visit multiple sites to find a solution.
  • New search capabilities and category selection making it easier to filter and find what you’re looking for.
  • Google Analytics Certified Partners are sorted based on your location to find partners that have an office near you.
  • Media assets like screenshots / videos / case studies that highlight customer success stories and illustrate app features.
  • Comments and ratings to review user experiences and provide feedback.

WHAT’S HAPPENING IN CONTENT?     

Content marketing is mainstream, with 90% of marketers using content to build their brands and achieve their business goals, according to the Content Marketing Institute. While it’s now widely understood that content marketing is a critical component of any marketing strategy, the most forward-thinking content marketers are experimenting with how they create, distribute and track their content’s success. That’s leading to more long-form videos as well as more interesting trends — micro-content and interactive apps. Read more on Newly discovered benefits of Micro –Content!

Seven years ago, he founded what is now Content Marketing Institute, a website dedicated to all things content marketing, including practical how-tos and insight from industry leaders. In a recent interview, Joe gives answers to major challenges marketers face and discusses the future of the content marketing.
