About this Report
This is the latest update to our Innovation Report, which features 23 new entries. The report is an ongoing guide to all that is original and pioneering in the world of e-commerce and online marketing.
The report is a distillation of ideas and suggestions provided by digital marketing experts as well as innovative developments spotted by the Econsultancy content team.
Focusing on cutting-edge digital marketing tactics and strategies, the report looks at examples of innovation that clearly add value for consumers and help them achieve their goals more effectively. Rather than citing 'technology for technology's sake', we are looking for inventive and pioneering approaches to online marketing.
Innovation - an approach, idea, practice or technology which holds out the promise of being a smarter, better way of doing things. Not just new for the sake of being new, but a fresh take on solving a particular challenge or improving on the norm.
- Ashley Friedlein, CEO and Co-founder, Econsultancy
