Now, as year-end lists have tweeted and shared during the past few days, there is a greater chance to see what 2015 holds for digital media, especially for businesses driving messaging and sales through online strategy.
For our final column, we’re shifting to think about 2015 and the latest technology, players and politics influencing our strategy for the New Year:

It also wins with customers by engaging them in their daily life and experiences.
