2012 Mobile Future in Focus


Title: Future in Focus
Type: Study Report
Author: ComScore
Opt-In: Yes

2011 was a pivotal year for the mobile industry, marked by the
dramatic rise of smartphones in the mainstream, the burgeoning of tablets and other web-enabled connected devices, and a cultural shift toward cross-platform digital media consumption. With mobile becoming an increasing part of comprehensive digital marketing strategies, it becomes more important than ever to understand how the current trends are shaping the mobile environment, with an eye to what lies ahead for 2012.

This report examines the mobile and connected device landscape across the mobile markets measured by comScore – primarily the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan, and Canada – through an exploration of dominant themes in smartphone adoption growth, mobile media use in areas such as social networking and retail, platform ecosystem dynamics, and shifts in multi-device digital media consumption.

The Next Evolution: Store 3.0™ (By Deloitte)


Title: Store 3.0
Type: Survey Report
Author: Deloitte
Opt-In: No

Traditional retailers are finding it harder to keep pace with evolving consumer attitudes and expectations — and may not have time to catch up. They have come to a crossroads where they need to rethink how they can transform their stores, strategies, and operating models into a store of tomorrow — a Store 3.0™ — to attract the loyalty and larger share of wallet of customers.

Deloitte conducted a survey in September 2011 of 39 retail executives to understand how they are adapting their brick-and-mortar stores to a next-generation format. The survey results show that few retailers are leading the transformation to a Store 3.0™ environment. Many are grappling with how to create a well-integrated future store strategy — one that is attuned to the needs and expectations of the evolving consumer, brings the right technology into the physical space, and can deliver a highly satisfying experience. Plus, retailers are unsure about the roles and responsibilities of their sales associates in this new environment.

We believe that retailers who combine the best of both retail worlds — the sensory experience of a brick-and-mortar store with convenient access to extensive online information — can gain the upper hand in an intensely competitive environment.

Digital Britain: the truth about how we live today through technology (by Dare)


Title: Digital Britain
Type: Book
Author: Dare
Opt-In: Yes (Pay with a Tweet)

Men rule the web. Gaming’s for geeks. Women aren’t interested in tech. iTunes is the most popular music player. Those with the most followers on Twitter have the most
influence. The iPad is mostly used on the go. Right? Wrong. Our collective knowledge about how people live today through technology is so tangled up by satisfying yet shallow soundbites, lazy research and the biased rhetoric of specialists, it’s hard to know what people really do today.
How do they talk, watch, listen, read, play games, socialise, research and buy in today’s increasingly digital world? How does this differ between the sexes and generations? If your brand is going to connect with consumers in the digital age, you need better answers to questions like these.

This report is the start of that. By drawing together quality research from hundreds of different referenced sources it paints a picture of current media and technology consumption and how that might develop in the future. It should make you more knowledgeable. It should give you the arsenal to fight for strategies and creative solutions that go against tired convention. But it should also flag up when you’re in
danger of jumping on a bandwagon and wasting your precious marketing budget.

In short, this report should help you unpick the truth from the myth.

FOMO: Fear Of Missing Out (by JWT Intelligence)


Title: Fear of Missing Out
Type: Trend Research
Author: JWT Intelligence
Opt-In: Yes

We’ve always had a fear of missing out—that our peers are doing, in the know about or in possession of more or something better than us—but today it’s exploding with the onset of real-time, location-based and social media tools.

This trend report, which updates our May 2011 report with new quantitative and qualitative data, explores the FOMO phenomenon. We identify which cohort is most prone to FOMO and how they respond to it, spotlight how FOMO is manifesting in the zeitgeist, and look at the wide-ranging potential for brands seeking to tap into FOMO.

In addition to desk research, we interviewed experts and influencers in technology and academia, and conducted a survey in the U.S. and the U.K. using SONAR™, JWT’s proprietary online tool. The survey polled 1,270 adults aged 18-plus and 110 teens from Jan. 19-24.

The company behind the brand: in reputation we trust (by Weber Shandwick)

reputation we trust

Title: In reputation we trust
Type: Research Report
Author: Weber Shandwick
Opt-In: No

As consumers around the world have greater online access to a brand’s lineage, the influence of the brand “parent” or company behind the brand matters even more. In this uncertain climate, consumers expect more from leading companies and have no trouble boycotting those that fail to live up to new standards. At the same time, leaders need to know how to do business in an environment where consumers are not just purchasing their products or services on their own merits, but are also shopping by company reputation. The mounting convergence of brand and corporate reputation revealed in our study ushers in a new era of marketing communications.
As thought leaders in the reputation field, global public relations firm Weber Shandwick and its research arm, KRC Research, conducted an online survey among both consumers and executives to answer the frequently-raised question from corporate officers about how brand and reputation are evolving in this new see-thru, nowhere to hide world. The research aims to help marketing and communications executives adjust to what we foresee as a tectonic shift in communicating the voice of the “enterprise” to key stakeholders.

The research was conducted in October and November 2011 among 1,375 consumers (ages 18+) and 575 senior executives in companies with revenue of $500 million or more. Respondents were located in four key markets: two developed markets (the U.S. and U.K.) and two emerging markets (China and Brazil).

Talking, Texting, Poking and Dating (by Ericsson) [English]


Title: How teenagers are using technology in their social lives
Type: Research Report
Author: Ericsson
Opt-In: No

How do teenagers prefer to communicate and socialize with each other? At Ericsson, we think their behavior has important implications for the future of devices and technology. In 2011, Ericsson ConsumerLab carried out research into what those implications will be.

The research focused on US teenagers aged between 13 and 17. The quantitative part of the research consisted of almost 2,000 online surveys, and involved a representative sample of 20 million people between 13 and 17 years of age. The research took place between June and November
2011. The qualitative element of the research consisted of two
parts. In the first, one-hour-long interviews were conducted with 32 respondents from Long Island, New York. Following this, 12 of the teenagers were selected for two-hour-long interviews. The survey sample was selected to be representative of the entire US, and the behavior
reported is similar to that in many other countries. This brochure presents some initial findings of the research.

The New Influence (by Porter Novelli) [ENG]


Title: The New Influence
Type: White Paper
Author: Porter Novelli
Opt-In: No

The explosion of social media and digital technology has created a whole new world of influence. You can “like” brands and products on Facebook and share them with your friends. You can look up what your friends and family wear on sites like TheFind and solicit on-the-spot feedback about a product or service from the masses before making a purchase. And mobile technology enables all of us to tap into these credible resources—the “opinion of people like me”—precisely at the moment of influence.

But how do marketers determine who has the influence that matters, and what do they do with that information? Is it possible to harness the power of our supercharged ability
to solicit and share opinions about products, services and brands? And can it be done authentically and credibly?
Quite simply, many marketers are asking themselves, “Who has the influence now? How do I find them, and how do I activate them to benefit my brand or company?”In this issue of Intelligent Dialogue, leading digital experts will answer these questions and more.
