The study also reveals:

  • The difference between those digital advertisers that achieved the greatest reach and those which are not so widely seen but are relatively more motivating can be quite huge in certain countries; Lenovo, Apple, Sony, adidas, KFC and Samsung are ‘punching above their weight’, topping the ranking in persuasiveness in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand respectively, despite not achieving the greatest visibility through digital media.
  • Recommendations from friends and family, and online consumer reviews are perceived as more trustworthy than mass media advertising via TV, radio and print media.
  • Relatively new advertising media like virtual worlds, video games and mobile SMS are not gaining a lot of visibility yet with consumers, but more importantly, are perceived as relatively less trustworthy as well.

The study comprises more than 3,000 internet users, aged 15 to 39, who have seen advertisements via digital media in the following key Asian markets: China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand with recruitment and interviewing via fully managed online access panels.

The study asked respondents on following key areas:

  • which brands they had seen advertised via digital media
  • via which digital channels they had seen advertising
  • whether seeing the advertisements increased their interest in the brand
  • trust levels in different digital channels
