  • Our investigation began in five countries – the US, the UK, Saudi Arabia, Russia and China …
  • Our investigation began in five countries – the US, the UK, Saudi Arabia, Russia and China …
  • Here we’ve taken ad spend estimates from Ipsos’ own ad ex services, data from our Brand Puls study, and worked with industry estimates to provide a comparative picture. This is 2011 data, and we will be updating this year, but it provides a good indicator of overall trendsIn that there is enormous growth potential for digital ad spend both online and on mobile. So a 360 degree approach to brand and communications across touch points is increasingly important
  • In our research, we wanted to go beyond how people use their screens to learn instead how they relate to them. And if they relate differently to each of the screens. We did this by exploring the relationship with the screens through the lens of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung’s archetypes. This would help determine whether distinct personalities were attached to each device. And whether those personalities were universal across geographies and age demographics. According to Jung, archetypes are innate universal psychic dispositions that provide a platform upon which experience will emerge.  If the screens are universally seen as archetypes, they are not a tabula rasa or blank slate on which cxtnt is consumed, but bring to the content their own specific characteristics. That means that on each screen there will be an archetypal subtext to the conversation in which we hope to engage. We learned that screens are not personality agnostic. They are not objective transmitters of content, and in fact, consumers have unique and deeply psychological relationships with each one.
  • Let’s look at each of them in turn.First, TV
  • The TV is seen as both an “everyman” and “the jester.” Think of Homer Simpson or the actor Steve Carell. In the “everyman” role, it’s a regular guy or gal, like part of the family; everyone is comfortable around him. For many, TV enjoys the close relationship one would have with a childhood friend. “All (my) family members would have dinner, watch TV (usually it is the news hour), discuss and share the information from news and our daily activities” --Consumer from China TV also has the entertaining characteristics of the jester. It’s chatty and interesting; it’s done a lot of stuff and will tell you all about it.
  • When people are here, they are open and often passive. It is a one-way relationship and they expect to be entertained. As a result, this is a great place to tell stories. Consumers will go where you take them; they’re willing to explore and discover. They are open to feel something, and to form a close emotional bond.
  • The computer
  • The PC is the sage…someone to learn from, someone to look up to…much like the relationship with an older sibling. It’s smart. Think of the way Einstein has always been portrayed. “It would be very very clever because it can answer practically anything…male…very confident…and would provide you with advice with lots of different answers.” --UK consumer“Ateacher, or a frank, honest brother.”-- Consumer from China Computers provide a feeling of support beyond what TV (a friend) can provide. “Someone who could provide you with almost any type of knowledge that you wanted at almost any minute. It would be someone who would be great to have on your side and be around because they would be extremely resourceful.” -- US consumer The relationship with the computer is more dynamic. It is a two-way relationship in which the user engages in order used to get advice and information. The sage helps the user build personal equity and self-esteem. This combination of support, learning and information, as well as the harder, more competitive edge it give the user, makes for an entirely different level of interaction with this screen compared to the TV. Communication makes them smarter, better able to cope, giving them an edge.
  • There is an expectation that this device has the intrinsic properties of the sage archetype … it will make you smarter, better… you will see a net improvement, you will be challenged.
  • As we drill down into the data we see some interesting trends emerging, looking at online properties by category we can see some trends which characterise the market for digital content in MENA and to some extent differentiate it from other regions. The importance of video (subject to less censorship perhaps), online Forums in particular in KSA, content for women and we’re seeing e-commerce on the rise
  • Mobile
  • The mobile is the most personal device, it’s the most intimate and it’s always there. It is the Marilyn Monroe of screens. It embodies the characteristics of a lover…both the feelings of intimacy and the demands imposed by a relationship of intense closeness. And considering that 77% of the world’s population owns a mobile phone, well, we’re nearly all Cassanovas. “I would prefer internet on a phone.  He's easier to talk to and understand, plus he's there for you wherever and whenever you need him.” --US consumer There’s a real sense that, like a new lover, it has the freshness of a relationship that has only just begun and, if things go well, there’s a whole world out there to explore… still evolving. “Sunny and generous…willing to explore…full of potential.” --Consumer from China “Not yet fully fledged but funny and useful.” --Consumer from Russia
  • On mobile, the rules are personal, they differ person to person… and they have BOUNDRIES.
  • The mobile is the most personal device, it’s the most intimate and it’s always there. It is the Marilyn Monroe of screens. It embodies the characteristics of a lover…both the feelings of intimacy and the demands imposed by a relationship of intense closeness. And considering that 77% of the world’s population owns a mobile phone, well, we’re nearly all Cassanovas. “I would prefer internet on a phone.  He's easier to talk to and understand, plus he's there for you wherever and whenever you need him.” --US consumer There’s a real sense that, like a new lover, it has the freshness of a relationship that has only just begun and, if things go well, there’s a whole world out there to explore… still evolving. “Sunny and generous…willing to explore…full of potential.” --Consumer from China “Not yet fully fledged but funny and useful.” --Consumer from Russia
  • It’s not just internet on the desktopMobile and smartphone usage is growing at an incredible rate, and is set to be the connected device of choice across the region...Already the case in Saudi ArabiaBack to our UK benchmark the penetration of mobile internet in the region is already the same as UK…

  • The tablet
  • The Tablet is all powerful, it can go anywhere and do anything. It amazes, surprises and is a constant source of wonder.
  • This is where magic can happen. It is new and in a very short time has shown its awesome power, scope and range…and its growth and capabilities are geometric
  • It’s actually very interesting when we start to look at how usage compares across iPads and iPhones...the tablet versus smartphone. What we found is that engagement levels were similar across the two devices with the overall time spent reading The Economist being just under an hour and a half per week. However, tablet readers tended to gorge when reading on this device with fewer, yet longer, reading sessions. Whereas, iPhone users tended to snack at their magazine content, with close to twice as many readership sessions in a given week on average.
  • We have met and become acquainted with the 4 screens that populate our lives.  We have learned that they are not blank, but embedded with the personality characteristics of universal archetypes. TV…everyman and the jester……The old, reliable friend – people relax, lower their guard, they don’t think too deeply…it’s a powerful screen Computers….the sage….like an older sibling – something to learn from, share and compete withMobile…The new lover. Full of possibilities but everything has to be exactly rightTablets…. a wizard whose power is being revealed Embedded with these universally accepted archetypes, these screens form the infrastructure upon which our commercial content arrives.----This is the world we live in today. Content in single and multiple streams …from the same or different sources are competing simultaneously for share of hearts and minds.Will it change over time…of course it will, as will the strength and perhaps the nature of screen-specific relationships.  What won’t change is our continued need to understand and remain sensitive to these relationships. That will remain critical.
