  4. 4. A few days ago, I was chatting with a former colleague in San Francisco, California - he worksin the planning department of a prominent advertising agency in Lagos, and was vacationing in the US for the summer. Naturally, the gist had revolved around current events and trends in the Nigerian media and advertising industry, especially given the country's poor representation at the recently concluded 57th Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival. He revealed how his agency was still trying to come to terms with successfully integrating digital offerings in their brand proposals to clients. the mindset franklinozekhome e! paper
  5. 5. franklinozekhome e! paper
  6. 6. Marketers were not excited by their 'digital recommendations', and sublimely told the agency to stick to what they knew best - strategic implementation that focused on the utilization of traditional media channels - TV, print, radio, and in-store media. One client in particular, had explained their position was borne out of a research that was conducted recently; to gauge the impact of digital advertising on consumers, and that only a fraction of the target people in the research poll had reacted to online advertising. Fewer still had gone on to purchase a product or recommend it based on digital influences. franklinozekhome e! paper
  7. 7. "BeStupid," a Print-Outdoor-Web Campaign wasCreatedbyAnomalyNew York. franklinozekhome e! paper
  8. 8. I had probed further to understand what the issues were, and was shocked to find out that in this time and age of prosumers, conversations, engagement, social interactivism, and digital ecosystems, some agencies and clients still don't get it. The blame went to the agencies because they were supposed to act as change agents for marketers, consumers, and the industry, and yet, they were proffering outdated digital models, and exporting platforms and concepts that [had become 'old news' once they were used by the originators] were not resonating with consumers in the Nigerian market. franklinozekhome e! paper

  10. 10. They have to understand that in the industrialized world, and supposedly digitally developed countries, agencies and marketers were still trying to cut their teeth in this space. The digital world is continually evolving, and moving at a pace faster than we are at understanding digital natives. franklinozekhome e! paper ” “

  25. 25. Nike+iPhoneApp franklinozekhome e! paper
  26. 26. The digital world permeates consumers' lives, but they never think of it as technology - it's just another tool of convenience. So rather than viewing it as 'new media' and a vehicle to fire messages at the consumer, we use it to service a need. As we move from passive one-way communications to a two-way conversation, we give our consumer a voice by listening, sharing, and co-creating and, above all, by enabling meaningful solutions. “ ” franklinozekhome e! paper Stefan Olander,Global Director of Brand Connections, Nike
  27. 27. The whole idea of interactivism and utilization of digital media stems from the notion of offering real value and meaning to people's lives for a longer period of time, by creating 'tangible and real assets that transcends mediums to an engaging platform that people are eager to own. – Tom Himpe franklinozekhome e! paper

  43. 43. franklinozekhome e! paper http://www.fiat.co.uk/ecoDrive We can see from these case studies [including worksresearched in the past year from agencies in Johannesburg, London, Paris, Miami, Hong Kong, Brussels and Sydney, Australia, and ongoing conversations had with some marketers - Nokia, VW, Charles Schwab, HP] that we have not yet scratched the surface. Digital Planning goes beyond planners who get it sitting down in an intelligent hub, crafting proposals and partnering with media vendors that have purchased rights to already existing digital models, and packaging them as innovative, ground-breaking concepts for clients. If we are going to proffer brand engagement ideas and digital solutions as a basis for achieving set objectives, agencies must work in tandem with clients, content providers, trendspotters, marketing technologists and social media curators to create original + integrated concepts that reflect their total understanding of the business segment, and the consumers with whom they are trying to make a connection.

  45. 45. "The next great media company won't have a website; it will be all spokes and no hub. It will exist as a constellation of connected apps and widgets that live inside other sites and offer a full experience plus access to your social graph and robust community features.” next on digital franklinozekhome e! paper
