This study investigates trends of advertising in Indonesia's digital publishers. There has been a marked shift in advertising forms which has changed the business of digital publishers in the country. Digital publishers in Indonesia started about 18 years ago, when Detik.com first went online. To support the publishing, they needed advertisers. They had been using what we now call ‘conventional’ advertising, consisting of banners and pop-up advertising placement. However, as the number of digital publishers keeps growing in Indonesia, this type of advertising is slowly being left behind by the publishers. In order to compete with each other, they needed to create something new in order to advertise, that would both attract the advertisers and their consumers. This was when the concept of ‘native’ advertising started to rise.
This case study seeks to analyze the marketing trends that companies can use to their advantage, and which to solidly avoid, unless done with laser precision. It should provide insight into the perceptions that consumers place upon a company, and how upsetting those perceptions can lead to alienation and isolation.
It focuses particularly on attempts by established companies and institutions to establish or re-establish meaningful communications.
