Why mobile marketing is important for Indonesian? Here are some of the latest facts about mobile users in Indonesia.


Social marketing agency We Are Social released a set of report, collating data from numerous sources on the latest digital numbers around the world.

Here’s what the country looks like in numbers:

  • 50% web page view came from Mobile

When we talk about marketing is not complete if we don’t shout little bit about advertising. Because advertising is one of the marketing tools. Then, what is the future of mobile advertising?


The Future Of Mobile Advertising.

Last, but not least, there is still advertising to be done on mobile devices — and lots of it. In fact, according to eMarketermobile ad spend will top $100 billion worldwide by 2016.


The biggest issue is that mobile devices are considered so personal, the first thing we see when we wake up and the last thing we put down before sleep, that most attempts to “sell” feel that much more intrusive to customers.


Combine that with the ever-shrinking platform on the screen, and it becomes very difficult to be successful in delivering a message.


There is another whole column to be written on this topic, but a few quick tips to consider are:  1) tap into paid social as suggested earlier, and 2) definitely leverage native advertising and in-app advertising as ways to reach target customers. More importantly, think about taking more of an educational approach versus one that is more sales.
