Calder Bateman Curated

Each week, we curate a collection of news/articles that caught our eye and may have implications on the industries our work touches – digital/social media, marketing, PR/communications, advertising and more.

Here are just some stories that got our attention this week.

Advertising trends to watch for in 2017
Advertising through persuasion is over. Advertising through participation is in. The Internet continues to outpace all media in advertising spend and doesn’t appear to be slowing down. It’s no wonder the top trends for advertising in 2017 revolve around this platform. Senior Media Strategist Nicole walks us through where she sees advertising and media heading in 2017.
