Business trends change frequently and fiercely, and business owners need to keep their fingers on the pulse – to identify both opportunities and threats to their business.
A really interesting blurb at Inc.com talks through some key trend changes that could impact many businesses in 2013. Look out for them:
- Reverse outsourcing – as the name suggests, this is the trend of companies bringing back outsourced jobs to home soil.
- Reputation management looks to gain momentum as companies will look to protect their brands against online commentary.
- HTML5 will replace Flash.
- Other trends include the end of the fax machine, and the decline of email marketing.
