New Trends - Digital first marketing

Marks and Spencer is a well-known brand in the UK but it has sometimes been seen as the ‘older generation’s’ store. Indeed M&S has been working to change this perception over the past few years with more modern and chic ranges of clothes and homeware and affordable food like ‘Dine in for £10’. Now they are looking to connect even more with their customers by rolling out advertising campaigns online, before print and television.

Case Study: Making mobile advertising work for your business

In recent statistics gathered by accounting firm PwC, UK internet users spend an average of one-in-seven online minutes accessing their social networks. According to the most recent IAB digital ad spend figures, social ad budgets have increased 53% in the last year, creating an online spend of over £3bn. One of the main reasons for such an increase is the rise in use of mobile technology – smart phones and tablets, enabling users to access their accounts anywhere. 

What does this mean for advertisers? It means that one of the major channels for getting your message out there is via the realm of the social networking world. Increasing your online spend is the first step to taking advantage of these users but it not the only thing you need to be aware of. Mobile advertising is continuing to grow and a proactive business will invest in utilising social media on mobiles.
