  27. 27. So what does this allmean for marketers?• Digital is an emerging media in Kenya• Prepare for an explosion of activity as quality access opens up latent demand• It will become more representative of the population, and is being driven by mobile access – ensure mobile part of your digital engagement strategy• Go mobile first. Consumers are expecting growth in online activities to still come largely from mobile, although expect browsing-related activities to gain a foothold on the PC.• Engaging consumers in the digital arena is not the same as traditional marketing and broadcast media – its much more complex• Understand different segments using the internet and engage with them according to their needs
  28. 28. Some final thoughts…• It’s all about ICE – Communication/social, information, and Entertainment in Kenya• Work on strategies to gain permission to enter the consumer social space• Consumers link to brands to get more information. Ensure your brand page meets this need• Enable on-line banking, browsing and purchasing, paying bills, watching TV and listening to radio online• Get into the game early…
