Netizen For Youth

The marketers also must know the composition of netizens who turns predominantly two main layers of users, namely young people and women. Marketeers research shows, the majority of netizens are young. The most active of these groups to access social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, while women become highly consumptive Internet users.

On this, Hermawan Kartajaya (marketing expert and also the President MarkPlus & Co) tried confirm to a woman who happened to be in a forum with last week. The woman was Olga Lydia who is also an artist.

To Olga, Herman asked habits of women when angry or stressed.

This is an interesting phenomenon for marketers, especially Indonesia is the second largest Facebook users in the world. Unsparing, 27 million Facebook accounts exist in Indonesia.



Indonesia's Most Favorite Netizen Brand

Character netizen "liquid" and horizontal demanding marketers not enough just to use conventional marketing strategies. New Wave also needed steps to be able to "Connect!" With them. If all this more marketers targeting them from a distance, then kinidi New Wave era, your brand must be present and live in parallel with them. Brand characters in the era of New Wave should be able to connect to the community wherever they are.

Netizens are not monolithic profile provides opportunities for marketers to identify the type of Netizens roughly where it is most suited to the character of the brand or company. Marketers must also be able to determine what marketing strategies are most appropriate to approach them in order to brand or company acceptable horizontally. The presence of social media, such as Twitter Faceebook and makes the world more noisy due to the chirp of the netizens, so the marketers need a sixth sense to be able to capture the desires and their anxieties. Then what should be done by marketers? Gali and understand them continue.

As has been frequently discussed by Marketeers, In the world of marketing, reading anxiety, desire and dreams of our customers is very important. Why? Because the anxieties and desires of the consumer is the number one source of knowledge for innovation! Anxieties, desires, and dreams are hard to come out of the mouth of consumers directly.

You can only read from the movements and their behavior.

Fortunately we had arrived in the New Wave era. With Web 2.0 Internet technology backed by the power of social media, consumer insight more easily caught! And sophisticated, in the online world, these insights come out directly from the consumer booms that circulate on blogs, on Twitter, on their Facebook status. All of which can be tracked by you, and also of course your competitors.

Internet world is like a well filled with anxieties and desires of the Netizen. Marketers can explore and gain rich insight, by way of a low budget but high impact. The Netizen research in Indonesia, in addition to digging attitude and behavior and profiling of the Netizen, we are also looking for some brand which has been the brand of choice for Netizens. With a total number of 45 brands in 45 categories, the brand is the choice number one by the Netizen this is a brand that understands.

Based on the survey results netizens this year, MarkPlus Insight found 32 brand choice Netizen Indonesia. Quantitative research conducted on 2161 Internet users aged 15-64 years who come from social classes A, B, and C (having a family routine spending at least $ 1 million) and spread in eleven cities in Indonesia (Jakarta, Bodetabek, Bandung, Semarang, Surabaya , Medan, Palembang, Pekanbaru, Denpasar, Banjarmasin, and Makassar). Data collection was conducted using face to face interview with the sampling method of multi-stage random sampling.

The categories of the brand include:

Cellular operators, Laptop, Tablet PC, Computer Monitor, Camera, Game Console, TV, Home Theatre, Radio, airconditioning rooms, Washing Machine, Car, Motorcycle, Car Audio, Credit Card, Television, Magazine, Tabloid, Newspaper (Region Jakarta ), Radio (Region Jakarta), Portal News, Instant Coffee, Soft Drink, Multivitamin, Insurance / Health, Taxi (Jakarta), Mobile, Vehicle Insurance, Logistics, Airlines

To become independent and positifi Netizen, we need to master the technology, not the technology mastered. To compete and be part of the world community (world society) we need to communicate. Globalization can not be resisted, there is prepared. The influx of expatriates as human resources and foreign products into the country is part of globalization. Inevitably, both human resources and product Indonesia Indonesia should be able to compete globally, and to borrow a phrase Friedman, is flat (flat). Mastery of technology is the main road.

Information and Communication Technology becomes very important in knitting global excellence of the nation-state. Not only BASED GDP. But also we are trying to save future generations from the real consumerism and has always been a place to throw the product, as the market and be seen like a big piece of pie tarts and divided by the developed countries. We will see, with the application of technology and embrace the vision of netizens, is a clear foundation for the nation to rise up and go forward. Abroad, the media as a fifth column has been turned into a media (social). Twitter revolution in Moldova one of them. or Obama victory that utilize Facebook and Twitter. The case also Iran, Libya and the Middle East are also independently, society makes social movements via social networks in order to establish a step toward change.

Independence of the nation is the future and there is no future for this country. Without self-reliance in the field of information and communication technologies, Indonesia will always be the consumer and never regain authority in the international arena if there is no balance at the same time differentiating factor between Indonesia and other countries that -maaf actually small when compared to Indonesia. Effective leadership, independence and consistency to whatever his name Vision 2020 or 2045 (100 years of Indonesian independence) please, if leaders do not want to be pressed by the leaders of other nations and change the "way of life" is the nation that has to be determined in blood scratches itself, is absolute requirement.

If so, it should, in the next 20 years, once again if the direction is correct, other countries for Indonesia is really small both in terms of demographic and political side. No threat nothing for this great nation. Stay tuned for episode Sriwijaya and Majapahit in a dozen years. The time is not so long, man!
