Next: 2009 In 2008 we saw many exciting trends and products emerge that created a wealth of new opportunities for marketers to reach consumers in engaging and measurable ways The year also saw potentially game-changing product launches that while they may not present immediate marketing opportunities will certainly have an impact on the way we reach consumers online in the future Some game-changers in 2008: Apple releases the iPhone 3G and opens the App Store to third party developers – over 10 million apps are downloaded over the first weekend YouTube becomes the second largest search engine by volume and announces its search ad platform Twitter gains traction adds more users and inspires collective debate Each year brings about a wealth of opportunities and challenges and 2009 will be no exception Below are some of the trends that we foresee happening across the media and marketing landscape in 2009 Online Media Measurement We entered 2008 with much uncertainty Newspaper headlines screamed of global recession and everyone wondered just how deep the mortgage crisis rabbit hole would be We approach 2009 with far more certainty We are fairly certain that for at least the first half of 2009 it will be a challenging year for many businesses For marketers it will mean greater pressure for accountability and return on investment But the good news is that this pressure will be a catalyst for innovation and adoption of new techniques for media measurement in 2009 Already many sources are predicting that search spending will increase or at least stay stable due to its measurable and efficient pay-per-click auction model Most advertisers who measure their ROI through online sales are already harnessing search However we see clicks-to-bricks and campaigns that drive other forms of offline transactions picking up momentum and turning to search This is a result of marketers looking for more efficient and measurable ways to drive offline transactions as well as the fine-tuning of some online-to-offline measurement models While display advertising has undergone increased scrutiny of late we expect that display geared toward direct response goals will continue to gain acceptance — especially by marketers who focus on search as their primary online tactic to drive direct response goals Increased adoption of performance-based display comes as a direct result of innovations in attribution reporting a method of tracking online sales that removes the risk of counting a single sale more than once and marketers gaining comfort with the value of the view-thru Just a few weeks ago comScore’s chairman sent a letter to advertisers citing some statistics based on their analysis of the view-thru Display ad campaigns are delivering a 46% lift in site visitation a 38% lift in trademark search queries a 27% lift in e-commerce and a 17% lift in offline sales 360i has also conducted research on behalf of its clients that quantifies the lift in sales as a result of the view-thru and answers the questions “How do we know these transactions took place because people truly noticed the ad Aren’t many of them from people who would show up at my site anyway” In our studies so far we’ve found that the answer is “No” – display advertising does drive people to a marketer’s site who may not have visited otherwise With all this pressure for greater accountability we expect to see more demand to know how various media are working together to achieve an overarching goal Dashboard interfaces will evolve and incorporate multiple media outlets This will allow media strategists to better evaluate how shifts in media dollars across different channels and tactical changes within channels impact results Finally we expect to see shifts around strategies for developing brand awareness With increased focus on below the line marketing initiatives that more directly fuel purchase decisions there will be increased scrutiny and caution around traditional methods for developing brand awareness and consideration Advertisers will further adopt opportunities around online video because it replicates everything that we love about the way that the sight sound and motion of television commercials can generate excitement in consumers without the buying downsides of high cost waste and lost viewership In addition as more networks and publishers segment user generated video content from premium professionally developed content advertisers will become more comfortable taking advantage of the unique opportunities online video affords Social Marketing Over the past year social media hit its stride Facebook surpassed MySpace in worldwide users and is nearing supremacy in the US In addition Twitter survived its technical difficulties this summer to emerge as the uncontested winner of microblogging and Barack Obama schooled marketers (and John McCain) by successfully using social media as a linchpin of his grassroots campaign Marketers have many opportunities to reach and engage across the social landscape It’s incumbent on smart marketers to listen to what their target users are saying online and build customized programs that are very much tied to the platform experience where these users are aggregating These experiences can be promoted by smart targeted advertising on many of these social networks to raise awareness driving more engagement and pass-along Equally important is the ability to develop measurement tools to ensure that even the most creative idea is actually successful in achieving marketing goals But make no mistake — advertising on social networks does not constitute a social marketing strategy In 2009 social media will primarily be impacted by trends around portability Here’s how it will play out: Social networks hit the road Mobile users especially under age 30 are already hooked on social sites and applications Location-based features will improve there will be a shakeout among the burgeoning mobile-specific social networks and devices will better accommodate popular social network features Social activities move beyond the networks Facebook Connect is an indicator of what’s in store for digital media Any site can enable Connect so users can log in with their Facebook accounts rather than registering for that specific site Connect allows users to easily see how their friends are engaging with that site while sharing updates back on Facebook The mothership of Facebook is still an important piece of it but now one’s network can travel across the Web Publishers and marketers will find new ways to engage users as this develops Social media come together A handful of social media sites ‘talk’ to each other now For instance one can set their latest Twitter update as their Facebook status This is going to come together in new ways including through dashboards where users can manage multiple social media sites and aggregate their friends’ social updates Some things won’t change with social media marketing namely best practices: First figure out what your goals are for using social media (One suggestion: tap social media to listen to what consumers are saying about you your competitors and your field) Next tailor the execution to the platform (a friend on MySpace is not the same as a fan on Facebook) These and other best practices will hold true no matter what new platforms or trends emerge Search Engine Optimization It’s been 10 years since Google stormed onto the scene and it’s a perfect time to look ahead to 2009 and what’s in store for natural search engine marketing Universal Search means optimizing all of a brand’s assets across the Web For much of the last 10 years the field of SEO was dominated by creation and manipulation of HTML files that pander to Google’s PageRank algorithm and breaking into the Top 10 list for any given keyword Now thanks to improving technology standards and bandwidth the world’s non-HTML or pre-HTML data — such as books video and local listings — are becoming increasingly more important in natural search The age of the Top 10 keyword list is gradually being encroached upon by thumbnail pictures and maps as evidenced by Google’s move to Universal Search in May 2007 All of this means that the well-understood “best practices” of SEO are being reexamined and there are likely published media assets that marketers should consider optimizing much as they would their text-based assets As this trend continues towards optimizing all types of media across the Web the question becomes “How influential will the HTML framework that wraps and presents these new data-types continue to be — especially since Google’s key indicator of relevancy is tied to the ‘hypertext’ of HTML Will data feeds and reputation systems start to make PageRank irrelevant” For years Google has been examining a combination of on-page and off-page factors to determine relevancy Overwhelmingly these factors have resided in the HTML code but we increasingly see Google looking inside file types such as Flash and PDF files And now that the audio-track of video will likely be added to the list of searchable on-page data the volume of searchable Web content will dramatically increase again But what about how Google uses link love to determine the best content Video does not yet have a widely embraced way to link to other video meaning that Google must still use HTML links to determine the best videos to serve in search Therefore PageRank and many of the underlying principles of SEO are safe for one more year but marketers should begin to think about SEO and their digital assets more holistically New devices change the rules quickly We see new initiatives every day with game-changing potential for SEO The iPhone and its copycats are one clear example These devices didn’t have to work with HTML although it helps their appeal and adoption immensely that they do work with HTML As time proceeds platforms like the iPhone continue to demonstrate that their reliance on HTML is optional as evidenced by the built-in YouTube application on the iPhone that serves video without a Web browser with its own search functionality So how will search be able to assign relevancy to content such as video outside the PageRank system The clues reside in proprietary databases containing view-stats comments votes and the like which are increasingly tying into search through data feeds We’ve already seen this occur with local search where link love is less important We can expect to see this extend to every specialized form of content that should be in search but doesn’t have established HTML links pointing to them Social media and UGC improve online visibility for your brand Finally no discussion of what’s in store for SEO in 2009 is complete without acknowledging the massive amounts of new data being poured into the Internet with social media and user generated content Bloggers will continue blogging bolstered by digital identities that travel with them to many sites through OpenID Facebook is making increasing amounts of their non-private data accessible to Google This social media chatter may not garner the big links that capture Top 10 positions on the best keywords but it will fill-in all the remaining space which is just as important And while this new content in the social graph about your brand may not directly affect the SEO of your site it does create thousands of new potential points of entry into your site which can also be optimized Mobile 2009 is destined to be the year of mobile again Over the past decade each year has had its milestones In 2006 mobile messaging revenues in North America reached $10 billion for the first time according to eMarketer In 2007 US consumers sent over 25 billion text messages each month and US mobile search users topped the 10 billion mark (according to CTIA and comScore respectively) This past year saw the launch of Apple’s iPhone 3G and its App Store and the first Google Android handset along with integrated campaigns incorporating mobile display video couponing and other channels So really there’s no single “year of mobile” but rather a series of firsts that continue to push the medium forward So what’s coming in 2009 Here are four areas that will gain momentum: Device wars heat up In 2008 the iPhone (with service from AT&T) set the bar AT&T won’t have a monopoly on smart phones though as every other carrier and handset maker is trying to compete to provide the best mobile Web experience Google Android will help but it’s still only as good as the devices running it As a greater percentage of mobile devices sold can access a more robust and speedier version of the mobile Web the opportunities for reaching these users will multiply Mobile search queries diversify Nielsen Mobile has reported that most mobile searching in 2008 has been for information local listings or direct navigation This should diversify much more in 2009 as the ease of searching and increased expectations from users will allow for more variety Mobile commerce will benefit from this – Papa John’s has already reported $1 million in mobile Web sales this year Mobile search technologies diversify How will people search in 2009 The options seem endless Google and Yahoo are investing more heavily in voice search which takes advantage of mobile devices Amazon released an iPhone application that lets users take photos of products in stores email them and receive links to those products on Amazoncom for comparison shopping QR code experimentation continues Text searches from major search engines may be the default but it’s not always the easiest most efficient way to search from mobile devices Location-based services hit home In years past location-based services (LBS) were discussed in terms of the marketer idealizing many new forms of ad targeting In 2008 the consumer came first especially through iPhone applications that could pinpoint local restaurants nearby friends and other useful local information In 2009 expect marketers to build LBS into mobile sites and applications that create value for users beyond just ad targeting Behavioral Targeting After a flurry of acquisitions around behavioral technologies over the past two years 2009 may shape up to be the year when networks finally integrate behavioral offerings and become “platforms” The platform of our future So what’s the difference between a network and a platform Network is a word that is often used in our industry and one that has lost some meaning over the years This is especially true when the word “network” is preceded by some type of modifier like Behavioral Contextual Vertical etc But how do you define “networks” like Yahoo and MSN Yahoo is a collection of sites (primarily their own) and they offer behavioral targeting as one option to reach their network’s audience That doesn’t make Yahoo a behavioral network – it just means that they offer behavioral targeting as one of many targeting options So what is a platform A platform is a suite of advertising products and services — including network services – that are integrated into one package to create more efficiency for the buyer Google is an example of a platform Do you want to target text ads to users but then also target display and video ads to that same user You can do that all through one Google account AOL has attempted to move in this direction with Platform A MSN created AdCenter years ago Yahoo will launch APT in 2009 The goal of the platform is to make your media buying a more holistic exercise So instead of buying a Behavioral Network you would buy display ads on one of the larger platforms and behavioral might be one of your many targeting options In 2009 as the bigger players in the space finesse the integration of their product offerings and centralize under “platforms” terms like “Behavioral Network” will further lose their meaning Complimentary services that were sold separately in the past such as rich media/dynamic creative search contextual network behavioral on-site behavioral video etc will be packaged and sold together as part of a suite of services If done correctly this will create efficiencies for marketers and more robust cross-platform sales opportunities for the companies who they buy media from 360i’s

capture consumer interest and drive customer loyalty through social media can provide material returns Making those investments now can provide your brand with a leg up on the competition The year ahead will bring many challenges and importantly many opportunities for marketers to develop deeper connections with their customers and better measure the impact of their marketing efforts As always

this POV and see which opportunities might help you take your digital marketing program further in 2009Written by Harish Damodaran | New Delhi | Updated: June 1 2017 5:02 am High global prices in turn helped boost the competitiveness of India’s farm exports that grew from just over $ 75 billion in 2003-04 to $ 432 billion in 2013-14 Top News Falling exports and rising imports — this has been the story of the country’s agricultural trade over the last three years notwithstanding the Narendra Modi government’s ambitious Make in India initiative Between 2013-14 and 2016-17 India’s exports of agricultural commodities have dipped from $432 billion to $338 billion even as imports have climbed from $155 billion to $256 billion (see table) The resultant trade surplus — the country has always been a net exporter in farm products — has narrowed down from $277 billion to a mere $82 billion over this period The above adverse movement of $195 billion courtesy both reduced exports and increased imports has mainly had to do with global prices The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation’s Food Price Index (FPI; base period 2002-04=100) soared from an average of 977 in 2003 to 2299 in 2011 The index fell subsequently but remained well above 200 levels even in the next three years: 2133 in 2012 2098 in 2013 and 2018 in 2014 High global prices in turn helped boost the competitiveness of India’s farm exports that grew from just over $ 75 billion in 2003-04 to $ 432 billion in 2013-14 The surge significantly wasn’t powered by the items making up the country’s traditional agri-export basket: Coffee tea spices cashew tobacco marine products oil meals etc While these did grow the real drivers however were commodities not as high-profile or major foreign exchange earners before the start of the century We can single out five such dynamic “non-traditional” export items: Buffalo meat guar-gum raw cotton basmati rice and maize (corn) The story of buffalo meat – India emerging from nowhere to become the world’s No 1 beef exporter displacing Brazil – is well known A fourteen-fold jump in exports from $341 million to $48 billion in the span of a decade owed itself to both rising global prices (especially during 2009-14) and modern integrated slaughterhouses that could process and supply a relatively cheaper product (buffalo meat sells at a discount to regular cattle beef) to low- and middle-income developing countries in Southeast Asia West Asia and North Africa No less spectacular a tale is guar-gum whose exports shot up from a measly $1105 million in 2003-04 to — hold your breath — $39 billion in 2012-13 The underlying stimulus here was the shale boom in the US The said gum extracted from the seeds of guar or cluster bean (a hardy legume crop grown mostly in Rajasthan) is used as a thickening agent in the fracking fluid injected into shale rock formations at high-pressure to create cracks and allow gas/oil to flow through them As hydrocarbon drilling services firms like Halliburton Schlumberger and Baker Hughes began stockpiling guar-gum during the boom its prices and exports from India also spiralled The last decade saw India also emerge as the world’s largest exporter of rice (ahead of Thailand and Vietnam) and No 2 in cotton (after US) Equally amazing was corn In 2000-01 the country hardly shipped out 32500 tonnes of this feed grain worth $597 million By 2012-13 these numbers had touched 479 million tonnes and $131 billion respectively with the Kosi-Seemanchal belt of Bihar and Odisha’s Nabarangpur district becoming major sourcing centres for multinational traders despatching the grain to Indonesia Malaysia and Vietnam via Kakinada and Visakhapatnam ports In all the three commodities exports were also enabled by production-boosting technology — Bt transgenics in cotton high-yielding single-cross hybrids in maize and the blockbuster Pusa-1121 basmati variety in rice But all this is now history The end of the decade-long global commodity boom has also engendered a collapse of India’s agri-exports In 2016-17 guar-gum exports were valued at only $467 million Oil-meals likewise brought in barely $800 million compared to $3 billion-plus in 2012-13 while cotton exports have shrunk 62 per cent over their 2011-12 high of $43 billion Annual corn shipments too are down to around $150 million These can be primary attributed to international prices: At their peak corn and soyabean futures at the Chicago Board of Trade quoted at $849 and $1794 per bushel on August 10 2012 and September 4 2012 respectively whereas they are currently trading at $367 and $913 per bushel The ruling benchmark Cotlook ‘A’ Index price of 8720 cents a pound is a fraction of its corresponding all-time-high of 244 cents on March 8 2011 But it isn’t exports alone Declining global prices have also pushed up imports and made the latter cheaper This can be seen for instance in wheat where India has turned from an exporter to the tune of $193 billion in 2012-13 and $157 billion in 2013-14 to an importer of $127 billion during the fiscal gone by Even more striking is soybean In 2012-13 the country exported soybean meal valued at Rs 1415597 crore as against the corresponding Rs 761105 crore imports of soya oil By 2015-16 however meal shipments had plunged to Rs 151169 crore whereas soyabean oil imports had spurted to Rs 1941901 crore Thus from a net exporter of Rs 654492 crore India became a net importer of Rs 1790732 crore in respect of this commodity complex The ultimate cost of the external terms of trade turning unfavourable — the latest FPI reading of 168 for April 2017 is well below the record 238 reached in February 2011 — is being borne by the farmer Domestic soybean prices in the last three years have come down from Rs 4000-4500 to Rs 2500-3000 per quintal levels At the height of the shale boom spot prices of guar-seed in Jodhpur scaled an unprecedented Rs 30432 per quintal on March 21 2012 The same rates today are in the region of Rs 3450 The global bull run in agri-commodities no doubt benefited farmers in India One proof of it is tractor sales which rose from 190 lakh units in 2003-04 to 634 lakh units in 2013-14 But as boom has given way to bust the resultant impact has been seen in sales plummeting to 494 lakh units in 2015-16 before recovering somewhat to 583 lakh last year Without a turnaround in international commodity prices doubling of farm incomes and Make in India (more exports less imports) vis-à-vis agriculture might remain elusive goals For all
