Faced with a fragmented media landscape, Unilever has to find a way to reach what it coins the “Unreachables” – the “have lots” and “have nots.”
In Southeast Asia areas such as Thailand and Indonesia, large portions of consumers have low income and little access to electricity, let alone television.
Meanwhile, the “have lots” are spoiled for media choice, avoid ads, and are platform agnostic.
So to reach the unreachables, Unilever sees mobile as key, Rudratej Singh, South Asia Unilever exec tells ClickZ.
Watch this video interview as the vice president for HPC and Foods Marketing Operations explains why Unilever spends almost one billion in digital ad dollars in Asia using mobile as one of its competitive drivers to engage the rural and media-savvy audiences in brand building and loyalty efforts.
The CPG also shares how it builds its digital capabilities in the region through a Unilever Media Lab, a substantial “experimentation fund”, and strategic partnerships.
Rudratej Singh, vice president, South Asia, HPC and Foods Marketing Operations at Unilever gave his keynote address on Beyond traditional – Reach, Engage, and Transform at SES Singapore on Dec 3.
A believer of content is king, he ended his keynote with this quote:
“We don’t have 30 seconds to be interrupted, but we have 30 minutes to hear a great story.”
For better or worse, Google My Business (GMB) and Knowledge Graph (KG) are transforming mobile local search. It pays to watch the areas of innovation, such as hotels, restaurants and movies as these signal Google’s intentions.
Click-through rates for a business website fall with its position in organic search results. But what is the effect when organic results are pushed further and further off screen by paid ads, Google My Business listings and Knowledge Graph?
