Does anyone know what "Content" is anymore?

Is it just key words? Programmatic RTB? Are content brands dying as content becomes ubiquitous? Do consumers want to pay for "curated content" (ie content brands) What is the value of content? Only what an advertiser pays for it? Is UGC "content"? Is native advertising "content"? Can Google call itself a publisher? Can Amazon? Has "media planning" become oxymoronic? What is "media?" WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING? Help me find out!

Mutual Collaboration between Brand-Digital Company-Outlet for Digital-to-Sales

The hardest part for FMCG (especially for really fast-impulsive product) is to see any significant correlation between Digital Investment and Sales. Most of digital assets and investment seems to be a "complimentary" in nowadays marketing. Since we can do a lot of thing to create experience in shopping behavior in Indonesia (and i believe also in the world), we can excite the part of it to give WOW experiential shopping behavior that necessary for customer. To collaborate among KPIs of us. There are a lot of challenge : 1. Moms are the number 1 of decision making in shopping, yet they (in Indonesia) still lack in digital-culture 2. low involvement product's biggest challenge, to engage with customer that also create sales (impulsive) without touching any price down. 3. and many more.. Challenge accepted? :)

Why Don't We Have The "Oreo of Advertising" Yet in Indonesia?

Are our consumer that functional or are we just too afraid to create an awareness-driving advertising execution to be remembered for decades to come? We have all the brains and tools, so what are the things that prevent us from executing campaigns like Oreo's Dunk in The Dark, P&G's Thank You Mom, Coca Cola's #AmericaIsBeautiful, Volvo's Van Damme Epic Split, Dove's Beauty Sketch, and even Cardstore's #WorldsToughestJob? Most of all, what are the things we need to create more Indonesia's best-in-class ads?

Real reasons : Why mobile advertising is not transparent ?

Ad campaigns on mobile media, are opaque. Not only do advertisers not know nuances & insights generated from campaigns, they are also in the dark regarding basic details like the media that was purchased to run the campaign. How can this be changed ? Why brands should demand transparency of data ?

It connects the industry to the government, educates marketers and gives them tools and standards to follow. These activities have led to growth in revenues for the industry, and just as importantly, they have led to a growth in maturity and acceptance.

How can brands tap on experience innovation to win customer's heart?

Isn't a great product the best marketing of all? So why do brands often pay more emphasis on marketing their product than innovating the product itself? Marketing can attract the spotlight but it doesn’t take long for customers to discover if a product is worth their time and money. How do we put the focus back to the customers' needs and create experience innovation on your product / services? How can we win their hearts for a long term rather that win their bucks for a short term?

Do you think e-commerce was created for FMCG products?

As you might know, e-commerce emerge and evolving here in Indonesia. E-commerce in Indonesia is very unique - you can find them on websites, forums, even social media! Anyone of you perhaps had bought something online. What did you buy? Gadget, imported clothes, limited watch, second-hand car, or even a Persian cat? What about these products that are not "unique" and you can find it everywhere - milk, detergent, diapers, ketchup, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste - have you purchase it online? Is e-commerce was created for FMCG products given the condition that you can find those products in all minimarket (Alfamart, Indomaret, 7Eleven, etc) at every corner of the street?
