The new web marketing year

There are lots of predictions floating around about 2013 but one thing is certain -- it will move quickly for web marketers. Bloggers are properly looking ahead. HubSpot published a comprehensive list of 16 important resolutions covering multiple areas of web marketing. Smart Insights focused on social media with what they see as five key social priorities. Facebook will continue to awkwardly monetize and Inside Facebook analyzed how Facebook marketing may change course in 2013. Looking at SEM, Practical Ecommerce sees an increased emphasis on paid product listings as well as new opportunities from a Facebook marketplace.

On the user design front Hongkiat published an extensive list of 20 hot design trends, leading with responsive design and retina display support. Design Reviver agreed with most of the list and added 'Skeuomorphism', which is the technique favored by Apple in which online items look a lot like the offline versions that they are trying to replace.

Certainly a fun but busy year ahead. Stay connected!
