The Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming more important for consumers and, consequently, marketers.
The internet of things presents big opportunities for a number of industries, ranging from healthcare to beauty. This is largely due to growing innovation in tech, with IHS Market predicting that the number of connected devices worldwide will reach 125 billion by 2030.
One of the most exciting opportunities comes from a marketing perspective, as the internet of things allows brands to go above and beyond traditional customer experience to anticipate needs, and to become truly embedded in the consumer’s world.
Data becomes more valuable when you share it.
