Moms in social media phenomenon. Do we engage them enough?

As we know that mom is the key influencer and decision maker in purchasing most of product in our home. As a family caretaker, she ensure she gives the best for her family.For that, she collects information, sees the ad in TV, browses via website, asks peer recomendation in Blackberry Group, and accesses facebook through their mobile that she always carry on her palm.Moms continue to increase their social media usage. Moms between 18- to 34-years-old were not only more likely to be on social sites, they also spent considerably more time on Facebook than the general population—24% more time on desktop, and factoring in mobile, young moms spent 260% more time than the average user. Now, 8.8 mio moms has their facebook account, it's penetrating 35% of total Urban Household. Such a huge reach number compared to print, outdoor, and radio combined.We also already agreed that the role for TV is for gaining massive awareness and social media for engagement, building brand love through time. We gain more insight from social media, we convey the message and education that we cannot deliver via 30sec TVC (or sometimes 15sec), we engage and discuss with them in social media. But is it enough? are we efffective and efficient enough utilizing this new and emerging media? How about if we create super successful social media campaign (like Old Spice & Dove Sketch campaign) designed specially for mom, dedicated for mom in Indonesia? Let's discuss! :)

However, what needs to happen for it to gain traction in the marketplace?

It takes us about 2 years to train a fresh graduate in the skills required to face the existing challenges. This is a minimum cost of about US$ 20K per person and a loss of 2 years. What if we could pick up a fresher who has been trained by industry experts with real life examples and case studies. A person who is ready to help you face todays’ challenges a person who is future ready.

Wearable tech: opportunity in consumer insights

Google Glass just arrived & more wearable techs are coming soon.I believe there's a huge opportunity to utilize such devices for collecting more insights from consumers (ie. consumer behavior study using biometric watch, retail display eye-tracking, product usability test, etc). What other opportunities can it bring in terms of insights data collection?

Is Social Business, Good Business?

 By adding a ‘cause’ or ‘mission’ component to your digital campaign does it help drive engagement? Is recruitment easier when your company has a strong CSR programme? At the point of sale will consumers actively choose brands with a strong green/social presence over one that doesn’t? And should all brands adopt their own particular cause/mission to align with?Speaking with my cynical marketer hat on, I’m interested to hear your thoughts, stories and studies, as to whether social marketing is smart marketing, or whether its something that simply should be left for the hippies to champion.

Positioning Indonesia on the Global Stage

Indonesia is known to be Asia's Best Kept Secret. Everyone agrees that we need more promotion for the country, yet every promotional activity undertaken by the government or sponsors is ineffective or has very low impact. As a result, we continue to remain a hidden jewel, and it is likely that Indonesia will stay an Asian powerhouse that is waiting to emerge as a significant player on the global stage. The reality is, "Indonesia On The Move" could very easily remain  "Indonesia in Waiting" for longer than we desire.What are the hidden challenges we face? What are the unique, creative and effective out of the box approaches we can take to put Indonesia on the podium it deserves. After all, having the 4th largest  population in the world and a functioning modern democracy, Indonesia has the potential to have the 4th largest GDP in the world...Join us to discuss your ideas, and lets set the stage on fire with ideas that can work.....

Are we driving ourselves to failure when leveraging on trends?

As marketing and communication practitioners, we always want to be ahead - either creating the trends or bandwagoning on the existing ones. On the latter, more often than not, brands and advertisers have the tendency or tempted not to lose the branding, make it a bit prominent, etc. which at the end lose the social insight on why these trends or content or the so-called-memes (harlem shake, rage comics, kiyomi/gwiyomi) became contagious in the first place.The question is, when it comes to the attempt on creating social buzz or conversation, should we compromise on branding? Should we stressed more into what interest people? Should we let loose our branding, in the hope of people will connect it themselves with our brands? Or it shouldn't be a compromise at all? If it's not, what is the best way to do it?I have some thoughts and would love to know yours :)

Native Advertising ? The future or just another small dent in the universe

The discussion or definition of native advertising is still on debate in many end but the evolution does not stop and is it advertorial? are we trying to trick the audience/consumer?Do we need to build a standard around it?Is this going to be the future or just another format of reaching the consumer?

In this age of intense digital Innovation, are clients using agencies the right way?

Now while the bread and butter of agencies work will always be to launch campaigns that help reposition a brand, drive sales, raise awareness about a new product, etc.In this age of intense Indonesian Internet growth, by doing the above, are clients using agencies in the most efficient way? Are we helping them achieve long-term commercial success or just helping the brand team feel warm and fuzzy?If like me, you think its the latter, how can we go overcome this?

Media Neutrality. Why content and ideas are becoming the foundation of today's marketing

We've heard it all and know it too well; radical changes in behavior and media consumption, TV and print viewership on the decline, digital, social and mobile is on the rise, clutterness, wrong recalls, insane media inflation rate, etc etc. Yet we're still racking up crazy bills on TV and print because most of us are still stuck in a one size fits all marketing & media approach.Things are changing and the Silver Bullet is no longer doing its magic. How do we make marketing to be relevant again in this hyper competitive era? Why people, ideas and content should be on the cornerstone of things? What are the challenges? Would love to hear your stories and have a great discussion.
