Predictions for 2017 and beyond

2017 & BeyondAre you looking for predictions for 2017

This post is now a regular annual feature of my blog – the top future predictions beyond the next year and for as far as we care to predict.

I’ve been tracking and updating these for 3 years now. It’s very interesting to see how predictions for the future, from 3 years ago, are happening faster, or slower, than anticipated – proving that we cannot really predict all that accurately.

This year I’m changing things a little as this list is becoming a bit of a monster. Instead of one huge list of all predictions (which might be interpreted as spam by search engines and website hosting), I’ll be rolling out a number of specific articles each with a number of predictions around a main theme.

There are a great number of predictions for 2017 and beyond and they come from a variety of sources. They’ll cover very diverse topics, but that all in some way relate to digital marketing and advertising.


2015 is in fact the last article I put together at the beginning of the New Year as it reviews what actually happened this year. Watch for it in the first week of January 2016.
