  33. 33. Implications ...1. Digital is the primary media channel throughout the world and is growing – as the mobile experience improves, digital is increasingly becoming mobile2. In emerging markets demand for comprehensive mobile offerings and advanced features is high due to limited infrastructure and low device ownership levels. In developed markets it is driven by greater consumer utility3. Limited smartphone penetration in emerging markets prevents ease of mobile internet access and restricts content uptake, however the introduction of low- cost smartphones will change the landscape dramatically – having brand content available will be key4. Harness the social explosion – social networking and social media have the ability to anchor digital strategies and provide a continual gateway to reach consumers5. Consumers are looking for experiences that match their needs and behaviours in the „now‟ society we live in – content that focuses on convenience and entertainment will hold strong potential to succeed 33
