A “Kodak” or “Instagram” in business – take your pickINQUIRER.net
MANILA, Philippines – Internet and mobile is as ubiquitous as pen and paper in our personal and business activities.
Even 4-year-old kids can operate an iPad or a cellphone with 92% of Filipinos owning a mobile phone. Most people do not write letters anymore, they send emails or text messages.
“Kodak” moments have been replaced by Facebook moments. The Philippines is ranked no. 1 in creating a profile on a new social network, no. 1 in sharing photos in a photo sharing website, no. 1 in watching videos online, no. 2 in uploading videos on a video sharing website, no. 2 worldwide in reading blogs, fourth in writing blogs and fifth in podcast downloads. Instagram, barely 2 year-old photo-sharing mobile apps company, was bought by Facebook for a cool $2 billion.
In all these fast-changing digital developments, what future do you see in your business and in your career? Will you be a “Kodak” that went bankrupt after more than 50 years of name-recall and brand leadership? Or will you be an “Instagram” that was bought out for a big sum in less than two years?
The 1st Cebu Digital Marketing Seminar-Workshop that started this Wednesday until Thursday at the University of San Carlos, Cebu City will give you the latest developments, trends and concepts on Internet and mobile marketing to help you avoid the “Kodak” pitfalls and prepare you for potential “Instagram” opportunities.
