They spend a few hours each day getting in touch with their friends, family or even strangers sharing some interesting topics. A lot of discussions are raised regarding products or brands they find interesting to talk about, either good or bad conversation.
Brand monitoring is an essential task for companies. It is happening when people talked about our brands, it is always behind our backs and chances to find out about it, is very low or impossible at all. (more…)
Love makes the world go round. Internet makes the world go flat. Customers make the business go live.
Trying to build a good brand is not easy. Some rely on the offline marketing like, advertising, events, road shows, etc. which will cost a couple of pocketful of diamonds. As the web technology grows, we have another media to market our products. However, one of the marketing focuses is about getting new customers or maintaining the available ones.

Have you ever imagine to have unlimited marketer everywhere? There are 2 types of marketer I’d like to define, inbound and outbound marketer.

Ada pendapat yang mengatakan bahwa blog hanyalah sebuah trend sesaat. Pendapat ini didukung dengan berbagai data statistik dari berbagai resource seperti Blogspot, Wordpress dan sebagainya. Apabila kita lihat data-data tersebut, memang menunjukkan grafik penurunan. Tapi apabila kita telaah lebih jauh, data-data tersebut diambil dari berbagai media blogging gratis yang kebanyakan dipakai untuk menulis jurnal atau buku harian pribadi. Jurnal ini sekarang berpindah ke berbagai social media lainnya seperti Facebook dan Twitter. Saya lebih suka mengatakan pemakaiannya sekarang ter-filter dari pada trend sesaat. (more…)

Marketing and promotion are essential for consumer brand. We can find their consistent approach to various medias from a simple flyers, print ads, TV commercial to events or roadshows in a frequent timing. These conventional approaches are targeted to relevant consumers a brand try to sell the products to.

Though it can be seen ‘everywhere’ offline (noticed or unnoticed) but however, it can’t be seen anytime when a customer needs such information.

Living in a hectic work schedule has also helped changed the way people access information. Once we heard of some hot topics, we are not going to wait until newspaper updated the news and read it the day after. Turning on the TV to follow the news is almost impossible too, since we are in the office. What we can do is find the computer, open up the browser and go to the news portal to read or watch. (more…)

In order to run a successful online campaign, conceptual strategy and planning are required. It can’t be done in a day or two. Continual efforts and investment in research and technology are tailored to direct the campaign running in the right path. (more…)
Many companies have made their profile online these days. Not just companies, but the impact of internet technologies have also allowed any individual being online. From a blog to social media like Facebook Twitter and YouTube. Why I mentioned these are simply because internet has infected our daily life like virus. Most of us can’t even live without connecting online.
In Indonesia, we have experienced fast growth in active users, mostly by mobile users. Based on a survey by Internet World Statistic, internet users in Indonesia has grown to 1000% in the last eight years from year 2000 – 2008. I’m keen on getting the 2009 statistic research as I believe it should be the fastest compare to years before. And rest assured, this percentage will increase vastly in years to come. (more…)
