As technology and the internet evolve and develop, so do marketing strategies. Digital marketing has grown massively over the last few years, especially with the emergence of social media and blog marketing, and influencers are playing a bigger role in marketing than ever. The way we use the internet is changing, and e-commerce marketing looks set to change in 2017 to keep up.

Video

It’s thought that by the year 2019, 80% of internet usage will be video.

[re]CodeCommerce & #InclusionSV: time to team up
