What Should Digital Marketers Closely Watch at CES 2015?
“The biggest trends from our perspective aren’t the hardware and appliances that are historically the big news at CES, but rather the data streams and insights their products leave for brands to mine. For example, smart homes and smart appliances are increasingly Web- and mobile-based, leaving us with clues to the consumer’s behavior providing not just the manufacturer with usage data but new categories like consumer packaged goods (CPG) brands an understanding of how a consumer is moving through their home and precision on product usage. This shift has CPG brands attending what has traditionally been a show for tech brands and geeks. Also, content remains the champion as appliances are back to the days of being a dumb appliance connected to the cloud – whether delivering Internet video like Dish’s new announcement of a live over-the-top (OTT) product, or the delivery of music content, to any device or appliance, which is why Havas and Universal Music Group have announced a partnership here at CES.
