Digital Strategy data - Digital Intelligence October 2013

New global research shows brand leaders see the switch to digital marketing now "a matter of survival", and reputation management (thanks to attacks through social media) now more of a risk to brands than an unstable economy or competitors.

Google created more controversy this month, with its new "endorsement ads" placing people's faces next to products they have '+1'ed, and breaking an 8-year promise with huge banner ads appearing on its search results.

In ecommerce, Amazon tested its own PayPal-style buttons, as battles with eBay heat up. And if you're looking for the best value paid media, new data suggests Facebook ads could be 18 times more effective on iPhones than Androids.

Digital Strategy data - Digital Intelligence September 2013

The digital skills gap is back in the spotlight after a US study showed most marketers lacked knowledge and confidence - a massive gap that confirms new platforms and approaches are putting budgets at risk.

Several big changes came from Google as they push brands towards paid search by removing some of the free insights. We can show you the workarounds, but marketing with organic search will take a bit more thinking time from now on.

- Mobile: New iPhones, fingerprint ID, Android partners with Kit Kat, and former mobile kings Nokia and Blackberry get sold as the market restructures - big implications for mobile strategies for content and services.

- Social: Pinterest and Instagram begin their first forays into paid ad space, and Twitter announced its long-awaited flotation plans after buying MoPub (we're expecting a mobile ad exchange announcement next).

- Consumers: Think power is shifting to the giants? Then look at our story about one unhappy BA passenger who used 'Promoted Tweets' to complain about his service on a flight!
