Differentiation in the category: As in the coming future, all the brands will try to maximize their gain on internet marketing. They will try to connect to the customers and keep themselves differentiated from others in the same category. At the same time they should be talking similar and relevant to the product category to be noticed by the prospects. Therefore the style of communication will play an important role in near future.

Engagement verses Conversion: The focus will increase on conversions through engagement and association with the prospects. How to drive these prospects into consumers can be an important differentiating factor for a brand.
