DEMOGRAPHICS + ECONOMICS + TECHNOLOGY The Perfect Digital Storm report series provides key insights on Southeast Asiaʼs fast-growing digital markets, best practices, and where the opportunities are for growth. " " The series is based on the premise that a “perfect digital storm” of economic, demographic and technological forces are transforming the region into a connected base of 600 million consumers, creating unprecedented opportunities for digital disruption across industries, and across cultures. " " Southeast Asia is seeing a rise in digital innovations from start-ups and brands who are discovering the opportunity gaps, and racing to fill them. Their early efforts are best described as game-changing. Yet the challenges are enormous given the regionʼs diverse range of religions, cultures, laws, and digital readiness. " " Each report contains clear, comprehensive digital, social, and mobile data from a single country in the region. Trends and areas of opportunity are outlined and derived from a range of diverse sources. " " " 2 THE CONVERGENCE OF DIGITAL, SOCIAL ! AND MOBILE IN THE PHILIPPINES ! !

" Tigercub Digitalʼs first report in the series covers the Philippines, one of Southeast Asiaʼs fastest-growing economies. Upcoming reports will include Indonesia, Thailand, and other ASEAN nations." " The Philippines is one of Southeast Asiaʼs most promising digital markets. Between 2008 and 2012, internet penetration in the country grew by nearly 500%, more than any other country in the region, according to the ITU. Over that same time period, device ownership and usage of virtually all online services grew dramatically. " " Add together young demographics, a growing of the middle class and a “mobile-first” culture, and the potential of the digital storm becomes apparent." !

As with its regional neighbors, three mega-trends are impacting digital uptake in this fast-rising nation:" " Young Nation – Half the household population is younger than 23, making the Philippines one of the youngest in Asia. Considering youth is where many brand preferences are set, marketing initiatives implemented correctly here can drive strong ROI and customer lifetime value." " Booming Economy – Once considered the “sick man of Asia,” the Philippines posted economic growth rates in the past two years not seen since the 1950ʼs at 6.8% in 2012, and 7.2% in 2013." " Digital Enthusiasm – The Philippines has some of the highest social media usage rates globally, despite low broadband penetration. It also ranks as one of the worldʼs most engaged markets for mobile advertising, brand openness and Facebook use." " " " " "" " " " " " "" " " " " " " " " " YOUNG + BOOMING + DIGITAL 3 The growth of the Philippinesʼ digital markets are well-known. In recent years, theyʼve been widely discussed in news media outlets, industry reports, investment houses and other sources. Much of this information, however, remains highly fragmented, obscure and sometimes even incorrect." " To provide a current and comprehensive view of the Philippinesʼ digital, mobile and social landscapes, this report aggregates a wide range of verified data sources and presents it in an engaging, visually-rich format. " " The report also features a digital roadmap with actionable insights to help brands and startups “leverage the storm” with proven strategies and 
 best practices based on real world experience in
 the region." " " The report is divided into three sections:" " COUNTRY OVERVIEW: covers the basic top-level facts about the economic, demographic and technological trends unfolding in the Philippines.
 " HABITS AND ATTITUDES: provides extensive and current data on how people use digital, social and mobile technologies in the Philippines." " RECOMMENDATIONS: includes strategic initiatives and tactical efforts to grow awareness, build brand recognition and drive revenue through digital engagement.
