Guide: Digital Engagement Trends Marketers Must Consider in 2014

January came and went rather quickly, and as marketers, that means we have less than 11 months left to accomplish what we’ve set out to do in 2014. Are you on the right track?
In an effort to forecast the 2014 business landscape, Mark Gehman, Director of Perficient’s Sitecore practice, prepared a guide that emphasizes underlying business currents, technical innovations and operational cultures. The guide, Digital Engagement Trends Marketers Must Consider in 2014, first explores several dimensions that form the foundation of his predictions, and then details the trends he expects to see this year. These dimensions, or catalysts per se, include demand, context, behavior and duration. The described catalysts address the need for operational leverage provided by a well delivered customer engagement strategy, and the predictions that follow are based on this theme.
