3 Bad Marketing Habits and How You Can Do Better

The worst thing about bad habits is that, oftentimes, you aren’t even aware that you have them. This is perhaps never truer than when it comes to bad marketing habits. Bad marketing habits go unrecognized in many companies, with most of them having the same bad habits. Here are some of the most common bad habits in marketing, with tips on how you can change your ways.

Technology in Cars

Many people already use their smartphones for a variety of applications. In just about any situation, the phone has “an app for that.” The process of technology convergence is an ever-increasing reality in today’s society. It is also being applied to our vehicles. Some newer models now have constant Wi-Fi access for communication, directions, safety and internal diagnostics.  

Advancing Technology

Gone are the days of analog gauges for speed, rpm, oil level, and water temperatures. Instead, the smart cars of today feature a fully-interactive digital dash board that can offer the driver and passengers a wide variety of options with simple touch-screen or verbal commands.

Taking long trips with the kids can now be a breeze with so many choices of entertainment available.

Will Anonymous Apps Become the Future?

More than ever before, people are sharing their personal lives on the internet. From social networks like Facebook and Twitter, to photo sharing sites like Instagram and Flickr, people are actively sharing anything and everything, all under their real names. From publishing the details of a pregnancy, to issuing a political manifesto, the public rules for social sharing have changed. 

Perhaps as a result of all this public sharing, a new trend of anonymous social networks has sprung up. This new wave of apps promises anonymity for people who want to participate, and yet keep their privacy intact.
