Two-thirds of Asian businesses (66%) plan to increase their digital marketing budgets over the next 12 months, according to new research from Econsultancy and Campaign Asia-Pacific.
In comparison, just 19% of companies plan to increase their offline budgets in the same time period.
Furthermore, companies surveyed as part of the State of Digital Marketing in Asia 2013 Report are spending an average of 29% of their total marketing budgets on digital, a slight increase from 26% in the 2012 survey.
However, agency respondents included in the report paint a different picture, estimating that their clients spend just less than a quarter (23%) of their total budget on digital.
If you run a digital agency, especially one that designs and builds websites, then what better way of showing off your talents than to build a wonderful website for your own company?
In the past couple of years many agencies have rebuilt and relaunched their websites using HTML5 and CSS3. The results can be eye-opening, highly engaging, and built to work on all kinds of devices.
It's not all good news though. Sometimes the use of HTML5 can be downright annoying: just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. Does it matter that some of these websites take half a minute to load? Personally I think fast loading times really matter, but I've heard arguments that people are prepared to wait for certain types of website. You can decide for yourself.
At any rate, there is plenty to admire here, and perhaps there is an acceptable trade off between optimal usability and the overall user / brand experience. Certainly it's always interesting to watch web design evolve, and agencies are naturally inclined to push the boundaries.
The following examples show what can be achieved, and mercifully not all of them are addicted to loading icons. Tuck in and see what you think.
During YouTube’s Geek Week, I saw this article announcing Batman as the superhero most popular on YouTube.
This appealed to me. I like lists and graphs, I like Batman, and I like YouTube. So I thought I’d write a throw away post and try to delight you with some other YouTube rankings and trends.
Back in June 2012 Tumblr creator David Karp and his team publicly announced a more focused attempt at getting advertising on people’s dashboards.
One of the first brands to trial the paid service was Adidas, however it is definitely not the best as proven by the low amount of ‘re-posts’ it receives.
A lot has been written about brands as publishers. Let's face it, to get it right requires planning, investment and the operational agility to react in real-time to breaking news as it happens.
However, the returns can be more than worth it, as a growing list of examples shows.
Becoming a ‘brand newsroom’ isn’t just a trend amongst the big companies either. Whilst there are plenty of big consumer brand examples, smaller brands, B2B companies, non-profits, and public sector organisations are also aligning their marketing and communications plans around content creation and social media.
If you are wondering if you should take the plunge, or have already jumped, the five tips below will help you get the most out of your strategy.
For the first time in Asia, the great and the good of the Malaysian and APAC digital marketing community gathered in Kuala Lumpur recently for the inaugral Future Of Digital Marketing (FODM) Malaysia conference.
The talks echoed a key theme articulated by MDeC chief executive officer Datuk Badlisham Ghazali, that "the next wave of economic growth will come from the knowledge-based economy, with digital technology as a key driver of progress”.
Here are just some of the highlights from an excellent conference.
This session will be a feast of everything new. We'll touch on future TV, digital out of home, and the multiscreen experience. Anything you want to talk about, we will! Come join us to discuss the future of marketing and how it'll affect what you do and when you do it.
Update - unfortunately we suffered Google+ connectivity issues during this session, and were forced to cut the hangout short-we've posted the first part of the session here, and will post a follow up post with more detail soon.

It’s a case of déjà vu. A decade ago the rise in popularity of Flash steered many web designers down the wrong path. It wasn’t the fault of the technology, but of the people using the technology. Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. I'm all for innovation, but innovation should not be regressive.
Make no bones about it, HTML5 design is a massive, musty elephant in the room, and it is about to charge. In its path lies a flailing, unarmed Jakob Nielsen, backed up with legions of user experience professionals, who are gently sobbing. GoDaddy CEO Bob Parsons, the noted elephant slayer, is nowhere to be seen.
So, below are some examples of user experience badness. The irony is that I spotted many of these examples in posts like this one, dedicated to ‘fresh HTML5 design inspiration’. For the purposes of clarity I am not pointing the finger of blame at HTML5 itself, but the 'HTML5 design' themes seen on lots of sites which suffer from the issues outlined below.
Last week saw the release of Econsultancy’s State of Digital Marketing in Australia report, where the current environment is closely analysed to understand what’s happening, where focus is being placed and how this is affecting marketing activity.
In line with this, ExactTarget’s Inspired Marketing Predictions recently compiled various opinions from industry experts, of which many echo the research findings.
The digital scene across the Asia-Pacific region is already booming, but industry experts are also predicting that APAC businesses will begin to rethink their current digital plans this year, finding alternative ways to enhance their online offerings to better appeal to consumers.
But what else is expected to happen across the region this year?
At the end of 2012, we saw record numbers in online shopping over the holidays and that is only going to increase as our ecommerce experiences improve.
This will only happen if we increase personalisation and make our shopping experience more relevant.
Also as we increase to use new devices in our day to day lives, those retailers and companies who ensure their sites and shopping experiences extend into tablets and mobiles will be ahead.
This year may see more of this especially when it comes specifically to tablets.
Our latest Quarterly Digital Intelligence Briefing: Digital Trends for 2013, produced in association with Adobe, looks at what marketers see as the most important trends in the next 12 months.
