Pinpoint Marketing RaceOption Review and SOCIAL Engine Optimization - building on mobile, location, sensory and diverse data technologies to accurately target you at your most receptive.Adverts dotting the sides of our screens and positioned as banners on pages are no surprise to us - quickly we've learnt to largely ignore them. Adverts disguised as cleverly positioned posts from our friends - entertaining, enlightening, captivating in their ingenious designs... infiltrating our social networks, pinpointing our needs with alarming accuracy and stimulating us into sharing them with our friends... 2014 will see the rise of directly targeted marketing. Created for social sharing, such advertising will blend with peer posts and leverage the trust you have in your network by way of enticing you into to a sale. It's scary. If you're selling something you need to know how the power of such promotion works if you intend to retain your market share. Your search field will narrow as analytics get "better" at giving you what they think you want. Search Engine Optimization matters but SOCIAL Engine Optimization will matter more in 2014. "Mean Green" (selfish shockers we thought we'd all out grown) - giving rise to an environmental agenda of growing economic interest as viable business models emerge.A friend of mine's 19 year old daughter asked for a real fur scarf for Christmas. I've been a vegetarian for 27 years - and an active feminist all my live - what I mean is I live to expect equality between men and women and give nature my full respect. We have had all of these debates endlessly; the environment, equality, poverty etc. - "Green" - as this colour has come to mean. I predict 2014 will sadly shed light on selfish acts we thought we'd outgrown with regards to disrespecting minority groups and disadvantaged individuals as well abusing nature and the environment. Such behaviour, seemingly unacceptable a few years ago will go relatively unreported and openly tolerated throughout the year.
