Millennials in the Asia Pacific are expected to have an estimated US$6 trillion in disposable income by 2020, says a 2016 report by research consultancy firm Accenture. Couple that high spending power with the fact that millennials represent more than 45 percent of the region’s population, then it’s no wonder that businesses are rethinking how they can capture this age group. Terry Goh, director of the Malaysian branch of KyoChon, the fried chicken chain that hails from Korea, says the way to go is social media and digital marketing. “There is no other way to see it. Traditional marketing just doesn’t work anymore,” he points out. Goh took on his role at KyoChon Malaysia in 2014. He says that even back then, the plan was to use digital marketing because the restaurant chain “didn’t have the funds for marketing on print, TV, and radio.” “We used Facebook at launch,” he shares. “We also had an Instagram account, but for the first couple of years, it only had about 1,000 followers.”

Article | March 16, 2020

As the Netflix Original library becomes an increasingly big part of the Netflix overall lineup, we believe that it’s time Netflix started branding its Netflix Originals. Below, we’ll hopefully make the case as to why it should happen and possibly how to do it. We’re writing this in the wake of a huge influx of new streaming services that are operated by big corporations that have multiple labels. We’re also doing it a week after FX on Hulu launches. The issue with this is probably an issue you’ve seen online. “All Netflix Originals are crap” or “all Netflix originals are foreign”. When you think of HBO (one of Warner Medias brands) you know roughly what you’re in for. Top budget series with quality. If you think of Cartoon Network, you know what you’re in for. Likewise, if you mention The CW, you know it’s going to be a lower budget than Warner’s HBO output.
