The Big List: 2010 Marketing Predictions & Resolutions

Here we are, starting the second full week of 2010. Chances are good that you’ve already made your own marketing resolutions for the new year, or perhaps penned your own set of predictions for what 2010 will mean to online marketers. If so, you’re not alone; there’s been a lot of thinking about the new year amongst internet marketers.

Just like last year, I’ve been collecting links to as many articles as I could find that offer predictions and resolutions for 2010 to create the following big list. And you’re welcome to let me know what I missed down in the comments.

    Should we wonder about an industry where so many people rush into making predictions that will, for the most part, be wrong?

    On a side note, my CAPTCHA reads: imagined stumbled

    Could anything be more appropriate?

    Thanks for the extra links, folks – appreciate it. Michael, feel free to wonder about whatever you want. Seems pretty harmless to me to have some fun trying to look ahead and make predictions, but if that bothers you, no one’s forcing you to make your own or read what others have written, right?
