2015 Predictions for Global Marketers

~by Merry Law, President of WorldVu LLC

All predictions are based on the experiences and the personal and professional environment of the person predicting. For me, this includes international work with addresses and personal data and with postal operators internationally. Any predictions are no more than guesswork on the most probable trends for the next year. Here are mine for 2015.

1. The economic recovery will continue in the U.S. but remain uneven in the rest of the world. In the U.S., the recovery will be uneven between regions and industries. Government revenues will lag and, hence, infrastructure improvements will be slow or neglected. Uncertainty in international relations will retard growth, particularly in Europe.

2. International growth in e-commerce will continue, with more use of mobile devices for all types of access. There will be a move to m-commerce and m-marketing as separate specialties. The development of systems to support the movement of smaller packages around the world will lag and be a break on the growth of this commerce.

3. "The Cloud" will continue to grow, with more companies moving to Cloud storage, Cloud computing, and Cloud file-sharing. A cautionary note to this is data protection and security. As more access is available the security risks increase.

  • Under Construction
  • ~by Katie Favreau & Jennifer Martell, Executive Directors of Cosmetics and Beauty AKA Global-Z Co-Morale Officers

    I write this after 2014 has come to a close.

    This year marked some rather formidable undertakings here at Global-Z and your friendly neighborhood Co-Morale Officers were here to help make it happen. We had never before attempted a construction project of this magnitude. At the beginning, we had a vague idea of what we were trying to accomplish with a general idea of how we wanted things to turn out and limited means to reach our goal. We formed our plan, making good use of our vast knowledge base and impressive multi-tasking skills.

  • A Tourist Takes The 'Red Pill'
  • ~by Dave Donlon, Vermont Native and close friend of Global-Z

    The opposite of living in Vermont during tourist season is living on the Canary Islands (The Canaries). While The Canaries may seem similar to Vermont (isolated and removed from massive urban areas), they are mostly everything Vermont isn't - surrounded entirely by water and blessed with locals who are undaunted by tourists.
