Didn’t 2016 seem to fly by? Before we rush headlong into 2017, let’s look back at some of the notable IT stories from the year we’re leaving behind.
- Windows 10 – the powerful operating system released in 2015 – finally came into its own. Remember that support for Window 7 will end in April. And, by now, XP should be just a memory.
- Mobile continued to dominate. The end result? Responsive web design is more important than ever. Responsive design allows your site to adapt to the size of the viewer’s screen whether it’s a phone, laptop or desktop. Going forward, every successful business will need a responsive web site.
- Social media marketing proved its worth. Did you know that social media marketing has a 100% higher lead-to-close rate than outbound marketing? Or, that 84% of B2B marketers use social media in some form? No matter what you sell or who you sell it to, using social media as a marketing tool is a wise choice.
Next week – we’ll look at some challenges that emerged in 2016. Meanwhile, remember to call us to review your end of the year needs and plans for 2017.
