Digital Marketing is spreading fast in South East Asia and many locals as well as global companies are realising that the majority of the population are above global average when it comes to consumption of digital and social media. Few companies manage to succeed in the digital space, but opportunities are there.
Many companies fail to leverage the digital space despite big budgets, as they lose track of the underlying data. Analytics might just be the most important aspect of digital marketing. It's what makes digital marketing uniquely different from traditional marketing and , in the right hands, analytics is a great business intelligence tool.
In this session, presenters will use case studies and examples from experience to guide an insightful debate on the best possible use of the digital marketing to promote brands and push products.
Presenters of this event have extensive knowledge on digital space from having found and built many of the leading digital companies across APAC. These include Groupon (ASIA), ZALORA (SEA), The Iconic (AU) and many others.
