Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) December 03, 2013

No matter the industry you’re in, the marketing landscape is always evolving. Five years ago, Facebook hadn’t yet hit 100 million users - a far cry from the 5 billion the company boasts today. Twitter was still seen as a place to share what you had for breakfast that morning - but since then it has become a powerful social tool that can mobilize the masses to share important (and not so important) news and information. And iPads only came onto the scene in 2010.

Given the major changes in technology that leads to a shift in how people consume content, be it information, entertainment or commercial - it’s no surprise that brands have to change their approach to marketing in order to reach their ideal audience.

To help brands understand what has changed and where we’re headed, Uberflip’s latest infographic offers a recap of the top marketing trends of 2013. Content marketing, multiplatform audiences, changes in search engine marketing and the rise of native advertising are just some of the topics covered in this retrospective.

“While some brands get it - there are so many that don’t. They’re relying on old tactics, interruption marketing and costly traditional channels that aren’t yielding results,” says Hana Abaza, Uberflip’s Director of Marketing. “In order to be prepared for the opportunities and challenges to come, marketers need to be aware of today’s marketing trends and tactics and how it will affect their brands.”
