  • AMS/UK/SCA/APAC
  • Online connectivity – and mobile online connectivity – continues to sweep across Asia at lightening speed (generating the kind of statistics you’ll see overleaf). But for most Asians, the online revolution isn’t about tech for tech’s sake: it’s about lifestyle maximization. Now, more consumers than ever are turning to the online space to cram in more value, information, social connection, productivity – and more downright fun – into every working, spare and stolen moment of their day.
  • So what consumer need or value is leading to us DIGITALLY CRAMMING – cramming in more online on our mobiles, in one moment and or in one interface
  • Firstly – this. Cities. Urban consumers live in stimulating and even overstimultaing environments – megacities, full of choices, activities, events, people and we are greedy we want to truly do it all and fit it all in both offline as well as online.
  • But we are // Time pressed: Committed to work, family, friends. Pulled in all directions and want to maximize every minute we have and will embrace whatever helps us do that
  • Our megacities are great for stimulation but they also are overpopulated and overpacked, and we spend a lot of downtime and waiting time like this in traffic
  • /Or waiting in line and we are not ok with wasting this time!/ Time killers: In Asia’s MAXIMUM CITIES, consumers spend more and more time waiting in lines, stuck in traffic and commuting – making smart, wireless devices essential for filling spare moments with more productivity or fun. Welcome to the age of nomophobia (no mobile phone phobia).
  • So in comes the smartphone, that allows us to experience all this, manage all those tasks timetables and schedules, and offers us online and social media kill time for those long queues and commutes in traffic or on the train. It allows us to multitask and manage our time better so we can cram even more in basically.
  • And itmeanswe are nowtheultimateparallelprocessorsDRIVING THIS TREND1 –// Parellel processing: For many consumers, digital multitasking is the norm. Half of Shanghai’s consumers engage in multiscreen media consumption (on mobile, PC, or both) while watching TV (Nielsen, May 2012).
  • And we are going to now demand a lot more from our hardware - our devices – we want them feature crammed to allow is to do, see and be more in one virtual place.We want them to have even more features to allow us to// Featurecramming: Determined to make the most of every moment, more consumers are embracing devices and digital tools thatare crammed with multiple features, allowing them to do, see and be more in one (virtual) place.This is Google meets Apple in one phone, notice the iPhone look but an android interface.
  • And we are going to expect more from our software – our apps and sites and our content and data to adapt to allow us to cram betterWe are going to expect it to be byte size enough to allow us to cram in every spare MOBILE MINUTE OR MOMENT, we are going to expect it to help us as Asians cram take offline cultural activities and allows us to cram them in online and on-the-go CULTURE CRAMMING, and we are going to expect not just e-commerce, but aggregated, mega commerce so we have more choice under one roof online as much as we do in a megamall offline and finally we are going to expect commerce be more seamless and social and buy where the conversatioms and reviews already are.And that’s where a lot of you come in, as entrepreneurs, startups, telcos, VCs and more.
  • Lets start with mobile moments
  • Small byte size digital formats – you need to shrink formats to allow people to indulge in your offering for a few minutes at a time, digital quickies or a digital snack
  • We have seen a glut of these happening already with QR and Ars and you know othe-rs ;)
  • Piloted in Cebu, Philippines, publisher InnoPub Media’s QR code project allows smartphone users to access historical information at heritage sites. Users scan the QR markers posted at key heritage sites to access content about the site, including history and opening hours. In collaboration with the Department of Tourism, local bloggers and journalists, the QR code tagging project plans to expand into other provinces.Link: http://innopub.com/
  • Made internationally famous by Psy’s hit song Gangnam Style, Korea’s fashionable Gangnam-gu district unveiled QR codes embedded in its pavements in January 2013. Eight square QR codes measuring two feet across allow passersby and tourists to access useful information viatheir smartphones, including local maps, shopping areas and restaurant information in English, Japanese and Chinese.Link: http://global.gangnam.go.kr/globalIndex.do?lang=en
  • October 2012 saw Chinese etailer Yihaodian announce plans to ‘open’ 1,000 3D augmented reality grocery stores across Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Shenzhen.

  • In March 2013, Korean marketing agency CJ Entertainment and Cheil Worldwide Korea launched a range of wifi-enabled movie posters in Seoul, to promote the Korean movie ‘Berlin’. Installed close to public bus stops or busy streets, the posters were encased behind plastic and embedded with a transmitter that emitted a wifi signal. Via their smart devices, passers-by could select the movie poster’s network (alsothe name of the film) to be connected to exclusive movie content such as trailers, clips, actor interviews, as well as book film tickets on-line.Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyLUCHe8Nuk
  • Launched in South Korea in June 2012, Live Sports Broadcast is a smartphone app developed by online television portal PandoraTV in conjunction with food delivery service Delivery Nation.

  • In January 2013, the China-based chat app Tencent WeChat beta-tested updated features, including multi-user voice chat rooms, voice reminders and song search functionality.

  • Of course we all know Google Circles, and how buzzed Google+ was because of it.
  • Everyme - launched April 2012 in the US. Nothing you post on EveryMe is public; the site doesn’t even offer the user this option.
