5. The How of Why Mobile (Presented by Avinash Pareek, Strategy & Communications Planning Director of Maxus Indonesia)
The growth of mobile as an advertising medium is largely dependent on the content that marketers will create. Audiences are looking for exclusive, convenient and original content. The need is to understand human truth and innovate content accordingly. This is a continuous journey of content creation as the threat of audience boredom is always around. Hence marketers will have to work on a new currency of 'share of attention'. Together with content, technological innovations will play a major role. We need to build more 'creative engineers' to keep audiences interested and hooked on to the medium. If we will be able to bring these opportunities in action, then the big numbers of mobile will become relevant.
