Digital Strategy data - Digital Intelligence May 2013

With smartphones bridging the gap between physical and digital worlds, this month we take an in-depth look at how marketers can ensure their offline calls-to-action drive maximum mobile interaction.

As mobile habits change, marketers have to pick their channels wisely. Android is now catching Apple in terms of user engagement, while chat apps are now more popular than texts as people switch to WhatsApp, iMessage and BBM to avoid hefty mobile bills.

In the display sector, Yahoo's new army of Tumblr bloggers gives it an extra 120 million daily impressions to sell targeted interest-based ads through its network- time for Google to be worried?

May also saw Facebook muscle in on YouTube's territory with plans for video ads, while Twitter's Vine videos are getting people sharing in droves- with savvy brands making smart use of the 6-second format.

Alongside a myriad of product launches at its developer conference, Google got tough on search spam with Penguin 2.0, while a 5-year feud between Interflora and M&S ended with a landmark ruling against bidding on trademarked terms in AdWords.

To round off the month, we have a special video report featuring Harper Reed, the genius behind the Obama 2012 campaign, and what marketers can learn from his 'micro-listening' techniques that helped win the US election.
