GetCraft’s Malaysia Digital & Content Marketing Report 2018 reveals that marketers are investing more on digital this year than in 2017.
This is not surprising, considering that Malaysia is unstoppably growing as a digital economy, with some two-thirds of its 32 million-strong population now online.
This rapidly expanding digital community is also the target market for brands, who want to tap into the driving force behind the Malaysian economic upturn.
Yet there are still symptoms of reluctance to invest in digital. We attribute this partly to the fact that many of the marketers we surveyed also admit that they are still unclear on digital strategies.
The main challenges Malaysian marketers face in doing digital marketing include establishing and sustaining engagement; skills and resources gaps; and budget restraints.
