5 Content Marketing Predictions for 2017

I’m not going to sugarcoat it: According to these experts, 2017 might be a little scary for us marketers. Rand Fishkin, founder and wizard of Moz, says, “In 2017, content marketing is going to be even more challenging than it is today.2”
“There’ll be fewer winners with much bigger jackpots,” says Larry Kim, founder of Wordstream. I stopped listening and started crying after “fewer winners.”
Let’s ignore those two comments for a second and get into things we can do something about.

1. Brands Will Get More Creative With Format

Content marketing has mainly been about blogging, ebooks, and other written content types that generate email subscribers. These strategies continue to prevail, but brands will need to be more creative with their content’s formats to break through the noise.
Visual content will become more important as search engines get better at reading and analyzing images to determine what your website is about. More gifs—yay!

2. Messaging Will Become More Niche

With more new entrants into the saturated pool of content marketing in 2017, we need to stop going high-level and start getting down to the nitty-gritty.
For example, rather than writing a blog post about “how to attract customers online,” you’re better off writing about “how to attract returning customers through Facebook Ads.” Scratching the surface of an over-discussed topic won’t help you stand out. Why should people read your post instead of thousands of others? Serve a niche audience, and go deep into the rabbit hole.

3. Video Will Reign Supreme

We love videos. That’s why we started this series. Marketers agree that videos bring the highest ROI, and we’re doing more of it. According to Syndacast, 74 percent of all traffic will be video in 20173.
Social video platforms like Facebook are riding the tide and optimizing feeds to improve the viewing experience. Having more videos also improves SEO, as Google—which owns YouTube—favors them in search results. So get your cameras out and start filming.

4. Content Marketing Will Outshine Traditional Advertising

We already know brands are spending more on content marketing than advertising. This trend is likely to continue in 2017.
In fact, Sam from HubSpot predicts that this trend will lead publications that generate leads with content marketing to buy out those monetizing with ads. Content marketing is more cost-effective than other forms of marketing, such as ads, and companies are getting better at attributing dollar value to content marketing properly.
Looks like we’re gonna keep our jobs for a little longer, content marketers.

5. Consistent Engagement Will Prove Vital

Content marketers have gotten good at acquisition, but we’re not very focused on retention. In 2017, we’ll need to shift our focus to driving growth within existing audiences—like measuring daily or weekly active users to ensure consistent engagement until conversion. Instead of just bringing you to this blog post, we should optimize it so that you engage, subscribe, and keep coming back.
So there you have it. In 2017, content marketing is going to be alive and thriving, but more work, more challenging, and harder to get results.

I suppose we just have to be real smart about it. See what I did there?

The advantages of renting a car on a holiday

It's almost time for you take a holiday and after settling on all the major details, you're still not quite sure whether or not you want to add the additional expense of a car rental. The purpose here is to go over some of the advantages of renting a car on a holiday that might help you make a more informed decision. 

First of all, one of the biggest advantages in renting any type of vehicle on a holiday is the matter of convenience. If you secure your vehicle rental before you set out, you have the advantage of traveling to your holiday destination at your own pace. You aren't tied to train, plain or bus schedules that at times can leave you utterly frustrated.

On the hand, you may wait until you arrive. The advantage here is that you won't be tied to hotel transportation or to the local taxi service. Once again, you have the ability to set your own pace and enjoy your holiday destination at your leisure. Another one of the advantages of renting a car on a holiday is that in recent years, many of the rental fleet vehicles, although not all, come with an on board global positioning system (GPS).

Think about the peace of mind knowing that if you want to explore or venture away from the mainstream of activities, you won't have to worry about getting lost and trying to find your way back from unfamiliar territory. Do you like to shop while on holiday?

Wouldn't it be nice to have a vehicle at your disposal so you don't have to lug packages back to your lodgings?

I'm sure there are many other scenarios that you can think of where the advantages of renting a car on a holiday far outweigh the extra expense.

The Most Popular Cars in Use by Rental Car Companies Today

The easiest way to deal with the most popular cars in use by rental car companies today is to break it down just as the rental car companies do. That is, by size of the rental vehicle such as compact, full size and so forth. What made this just a bit difficult was the fact that each major car rental agency had different fleets to offer the consumer.
So with that in mind let's take a look at the popular rentals by size.
Compact Cars:
The ‪#‎toyotayaris‬, The ‪#‎Mitsubishilancer‬ and the ‪#‎nissansunny‬ seem to be the choice of those who want a smaller car. These are ideal for driving in crowded cities where parking may be at a premium.
Economy Class:
The ‪#‎hondacivic‬, The ‪#‎VWJetta‬ and the ‪#‎toyotacorolla‬ seem to be the choice of those who want a economic car. These are ideal for driving inter cities or short ‪#‎family‬ ‪#‎trip‬.
Standard Class:
The ‪#‎VWPassat‬ is the hands down winner in the standard class followed by the ‪#‎camary‬ ‪#‎accord‬ ‪#‎altima‬. Each vehicle can fit a family of 5 comfortably and is designed with many creature comforts to make driving either one a very pleasurable experience.
Luxury Class:
The ‪#‎Audi‬ and the ‪#‎BMW‬ come out on top in the luxury car field followed by the ‪#‎Chrysler300c‬. All 3 offer a luxurious interior with many amenities to satisfy even the most discriminating tastes.
Sport Utilities:
In this category the most popular ‪#‎dodge‬ ‪#‎charger‬ and ‪#‎challenger‬ . Plenty of room in all 3 and rugged enough to handle even the toughest roads!
Now granted, you may disagree with this list of the most popular cars in use by rental car companies today based on your own experience but you have to remember that it was taken as an industry wide overview.
