2020 now looms ahead of us, emerging from over the long-term planning horizon. For years marketers have envisaged 2020 as a distant realm where consumers are empowered, companies responsive and new technologies like virtual reality and the Internet of Things ubiquitous. Now it isn't actually far off, less than three years. Marketers therefore need to stop imagining 2020 as some distant concept, and start planning for it as business reality.
To help you construct your plan, we've put together this list of 20 marketing stats showing what the state of the market will be in various areas, from search to social to VR, will be in 2020. These predictions can then help you decide where to allocate resources and spot possible opportunities for your business.
For those interested in the success factors for planning an integrated marketing strategy for 2020, we've created a guide to help you do just that, and it's free for all members.
