  8. 8. Findings (3) <ul><li>Better-off of mobile medium over other existing media can be classified into 4 distinctive aspects: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ubiquitous access – mobile phones are everywhere </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>detailed user informatio n => enabling personalization of campaign and its messages </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>integrated respond channel – promoting rich interaction </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>personal channel – grabbing more attention with bigger impact. </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Findings (4) <ul><li>Effective mobile advertising campaigns: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ability to promote a campaign to be more interactive, and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>help building a long-lasting relationship with customers. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Mobile campaigns can be classified into 3: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Push campaigns, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pull campaigns, and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dialogue campaigns. </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Findings (5) <ul><li>In Cambodian context: </li></ul><ul><li>In 2000, statistics showed that: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>out of 5 telephone subscribers, there were more than 4 using mobile phones, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cambodia’s teledensity reached 1, meaning that among every 100 Cambodian people, there was one telephone subscriber. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>There are 3 mobile telecom companies: MobiTel, Samart and CamShin. </li></ul><ul><li>Today, th is mobile advertising trend is relatively slow and advertisements in form of SMS are mainly employed . </li></ul><ul><li>The existing approaches of mobile advertising are likely involved with : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>TV interaction campaigns : </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>SMS Voting </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>SMS Quiz etc. , and </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>other informational or entertaining services including : </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>sport result/score alert, </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>weather reports, </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>horoscope and </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>updating news etc. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Findings (6) <ul><li>Example 1 Example 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Two example of existing mobile campaigns in Cambodia: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>MobiTel promotional Valentine’s Day SMS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Caltex’s CoffePlus launching SMS advert. </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Findings (7) <ul><li>But today there are some obstacles in implementing mobile advertising. And from the 2 examples of mobile campaigns, these obstacles can be classified into 3 points: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Firstly, reluctance of telecom service providers in allowing advertising agencies to cooperate in implementing mobile advertising campaigns. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Secondly, limited mobile users’ personal information databases in telecom providers lead to failure in targeting specific groups of mobile users. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lastly, permissions from mobile users must be asked beforehand in order to avoid spamming and commit suicide of this infant mobile advertising industry. </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Findings ( 8 ) <ul><li>DEMO – Visual Demo of Kambuja News </li></ul>
  14. 14. Findings ( 9 ) <ul><li>Methodology: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A qualitative research conducted in a focus-group style, semi-structured interview of 10 university students in Phnom Penh whose age group is between 18 and 25. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>From this interview, a set of feedbacks can be generated and drawn as an evaluation on the demo. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Findings and e valuation on Demo : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>N one of them has ever heard of mobile magazine or Mobizines . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In general, the adverts are interesting and effective. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Users are likely to be more receptive to Mobizines ads than those in other advertising media. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>But they fear the risks of being spammed and information-overload. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>They will very appreciate if there is a possibility of applying personalization and customization into Mobizine. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>All in all, this Demo is successful in adapting adverts into Mobizine effectively. </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. Con clusions <ul><li>Mobile medium will play a new role as a part of advertising media mix in a multi-channel approach to reach target audience. </li></ul><ul><li>Though mobile technology imposes limitations to mobile handsets’ capabilities, mobile phone is now capable to play an important role a powerful mobile channel to deliver advertising messages to mobile users. </li></ul><ul><li>Spamming is one of the obstacles in implementing mobile campaigns. That’s why the c onsent from mobile users in agreeing to opt in into a certain kinds of advertising is a must in order to avoid spamming and information-overload. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Conclusions (2) <ul><li>In conclusion, mobile advertising will not be intrusive if : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>a pre-established consent from mobile users does exist , and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the users are interested in it with a sense of being offered with exclusive value added contents, services or incentives from mobile advert isement . </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Thus, mobile advertising will most probably be another new success story! </li></ul>
  17. 17. Conclusion s ( 3 ) <ul><li>Mobile advertising is making headway in Cambodia. It is also being accepted and welcomed by local advertising industry both companies and agencies and especially mobile phone users. </li></ul><ul><li>In Cambodian context, mobile advertising will enjoy a great prosperity unless the three following obstacles are solved: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mobile campaign is three-party business: cooperation among advertiser, advertising agency and telecom company, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Detailed mobile users’ information and proper management of the data, and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Consents from mobile users in order to avoid risks of spamming. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In conclusion, the Demo is somehow a successful case in adapting advertisements into a Mobizine. </li></ul><ul><li>However, there are still few weak points to be improved and some modifications need to be made . </li></ul>
