1. Video ads on mobile
Video advertising on Mobile is seeing rapid growth. Video presents a great opportunity to quickly grab users attention and help them navigate from the video to a website or an app or a specific call to action. This will play an important role in the rise of video ads on mobile. The mobile video market has a potential to cross $10 billion USD by 2018. The market will see growth of mobile and smartphone based TV viewing apps which is another segment brands and digital marketers need to take notice while building a Digital advertising plan.
2. Virtual assistants on mobile
The biggest online and mobile players have invested in researching the user experience of Virtual assistants on the mobile. Google Now, Siri, Cortana etc.. will play an important role in guiding the user to the information they are looking for and create a potential to present targeted and personalised ads. Based on the user's usage and patterns, the assistants will be intuitive enough and direct the users to a target proactively. This is where Virtual assistant or personal assistant based advertising will play a crucial role in mobile advertising.
3. Mobile app indexing and SEO
Mobile apps have seen exponential growth over the past few years. Many Brands have moved from investing in Mobile optimization on their websites to building user friendly apps. Mobile apps present visual appeal, great enriching user experience and friendly user interaction. They are more functional and accessible. Mobile App indexing plays an important role in enhancing your visibility on mobile based search and increases your overall SEO on Google.

The collection and usage of such data and automated analytics combined with automated targeted advertising will the new future.
