77 Block Rockin’ Digital Marketing Trends & Predictions links for 2015

So, its January 7th 2015 and everybody and their uncle has published predictions and Digital Marketing Trends for 2015. Some are general marketing trends, others are more focused on social media or content or eCommerce. Below we’ve collated 77 links from various diverse sources for your perusal in one place.

If like us you go through every link you will notice there is a pattern. The trend within the trends predictions seems to be

  1. Wearables – Smart watches to fitness trackers to smart clothes to smart glasses. We have not quite figured out how we will push marketing messages to these wearables much less run growth hacking campaigns to but they are definitely a common theme.
  2. Original video content – we all know how effective video content is these days but unique, good video is difficult to come by and produce. Whether its using your GoPro or mobile camera or hiring a fancy video production agency we all will be looking to produce more awesome video.
  3. NFC and Internet of Things keep popping up in a lot of the posts. Again, we think 2015 will be too soon for most marketers and growth hackers to figure out campaigns in these spaces. We reckon it will be a few more years before these technologies are ubiquitous enough to show up on marketing radars

Anyway, the 3 points above are what we took from the links below. Here are all 77 links for you to make up your own mind. If you know of any other good links with trends an predictions for 2015 please share via comments.
