Trend 1:

Social creates glass walls

Trend 1: Social creates glass walls

The culture of your organization if more important than ever because your philosophy is reflected via social media. Investment in your employees translates into happier customers, which ultimately becomes an arm of your marketing team. Consumers can tell when they aren’t seeing the authentic side and will search for the truth.

Focus on employees,then customers,

then finally investors.#companyculture #chesktalk #sxsw


Social media is about enhancing human capital.

#deathofmktg #sxsw @townsendyoung

Product. Customer. “Happiness.”Then marketing & PR.

You gotta get the first 3 right and the rest will come.

Trend 2:

Doing good is good business

Trend 2: Doing good is good business

Social good initiatives need to be at the core of your business. You can no longer use a brand identifier to reflect your philanthropic commitments. Brands that embrace social change and instill at the heart of their business will come out ahead.

empowers people.”– @davidjoneshavas#sxsw #ageofdamage

than profitability.”– @davidjoneshavas

Trend 3:

Data + insights


Page 7: Cake SXSW Recap

Trend 3: Data + insights

There’s more data than ever, but a business had to marry these findings with human insight. We still can’t dictate when a piece of content will go “viral” but we can begin to understand what content resonates with audiences and brief teams better on what type of message and when is the best time to distribute.

Data does not replace insight.#sofunny #sxsw


Be passionate about the market you want to address. Don’t allow others

to tell you who your consumer is.#gogosxsw #sxsw


No matter how big data gets,

it’s still all about the story.wp.me/p2KcSg-4hA

Trend 4:

From badges to utility


Page 9: Cake SXSW Recap

Trend 4: From badges to utility

Gamification and fan counts are being replaced by social data helping consumers have better experiences. Consumers are looking for how a social platform can help make intelligent recommendations and ultimately tangible rewards that can be used offline.

How to describe @foursquare “The best of what’s nearby”- friends, deals, cool spots.

It’s not aboutgaming mechanics.

“Badges to provide real life incentives?” Yes! My health insurance company should give me a discount

for checking into the gym.#futuremap #sxsw

Trend 5:

Tell me a story


Page 11: Cake SXSW Recap

Trend 5: Tell me a story

From Vine to Timehop to Storify, consumers are looking for ways to bring their experiences to life and to tell richer stories. With the ability to curate content from a variety of sources and from years past, consumers are beginning to create a linear story vs. just a post.

Timehop is the beststorytelling app out now.

Relationship facilitation


Page 13: Cake SXSW Recap

Trend 6: Relationship facilitation

Social discovery isn’t just about experiences and brick and mortar stores—there’s an influx of services that use your interest graph to discover compatible friends.The dating scene is the best example, with online dating sites exploding. Consumers are also viewing their online profiles as an opportunity to learn how to optimize content, be it LinkedIn or OkCupid.

Trend 7:

Too much tech


Page 15: Cake SXSW Recap

Trend 7: Too much tech

Consumers are inundated with technology and we’ve started to see a backlash against being “always on”. Services that help curate information and brands that time messaging to go out at the most relevant occasions are the most appealing. There’s also a trend toward analog goods and services, consumers seeking out tangible/permanent products that have a nostalgic throwback.

As tech makes your life easier, it also provides more ways to be annoyed.

Trend 8:

From platforms to gadgets

Trend 8: From platforms to gadgets

The big shiny toys everyone was talking about weren’t platforms this year but actual products. 3D printing was the star of opening remarks and featured at almost every social function, the announcement of the 3D scanner and Google glasses were the envy-inducing accessory.

How many of you remember the first record you bought? Now, how many of you remember the first album you

downloaded?#EmbracingAnalog #sxsw


Learning about so many uses for#3Dprinting but my favorite is

making prosthetics for kids. #sxsw #openingremarks


Report: Google Glass was theclear winner of SXSWi buzz

Trend 9:

Twitter is the savior for traditional broadcast

Trend 9:Twitter is the savior for traditional broadcast

The amount of consumers engaging on Twitter during live events are growing exponentially each year. Consumers are again tuning into live TV programing to avoid spoilers and to join the global conversation. And the appeal of integration into events/programing is encouraging fans to flock to social to deepen connections.

Trend 10:

Memes are the new celebrity


Page 21: Cake SXSW Recap

Trend 10:Memes are the new celebrity

The biggest draw of SXSW…grumpy cat. The meme generated 3,000 tweets over three days and the line to see her at the Mashable House was hours long. Internet memes are surpassing traditional celebrity in their popularity and are definitely here to stay.

The line outside Mashable House to meet @RealGrumpyCat is insane!
