EIMS 2019: Cutting-edge Digital Marketing

When it comes to digital marketing, it’s a given that you’re constantly looking for new digital marketing tips, tricks and tools to get better results for your business, I know I have. That is why I was looking forward to one of the biggest Digital Marketing Summits in Asia, Exabytes Internet Marketing Summit, better known as EIMS 2019.

EIMS 2019 exhibitions

With over 30 exhibitions from various industries, workshops and panel discussions, the EIMS was definitely a day full of learning and engaging. For a first-timer like me, I found it to be really interesting since I got a chance to talk to some of the speakers and ask their views on the industry and its rapid evolution.

EIMS 2019 Exabytes CEO Chan Kee Siak

One thing that was constantly mentioned by our CEO, Chan Kee Siak during the launch was how we as digital marketers should always provide a platform to be more connected, be it with the customers or other brands. He also said “Focus on creating stories that connect the people and their surroundings. Always make sure to liven up the content so that the machine and the humans like it”. As a content creator this really resonated to me because, by the end of the day, it really is about what interest the audience or solves their problem.

EIMS 2019 Panel Discussion

EIMS 2019 also proved to be a great platform for people from different industries and backgrounds to mingle around and network seamlessly. With over 1000+ attendees who share a common passion for digital marketing and innovation, I personally had a lot of stimulating conversations that helped me see other possibilities and discuss new ideas.

EIMS 2019 Storytelling on Digital

The workshops and panel discussions were conducted from 9.30am to 5.30pm covering many areas of digital marketing. The main topic this year was Storytelling in the Digital World. The 4 aspects that were focused on are:

      • Mobile – EIMS offered workshops discussing how you can offer the best experience to the users while narrating your business stories to them.
      • Trends – At the rate that trends are evolving, it can be hard to keep up but with the help of other industry experts who were speakers, I got a broader perspective on how you can keep up with the latest digital marketing tips & trends and cater to the audience better. 
      • Content – From Karamjit Singh, Founder & CEO of Digital News Asia to Sharmeen Looi, Co-founder of Shopback Malaysia, the panel discussions during EIMS offered many tips on how you can create better content that attracts the customers and want them to read more. 
      • Video – Undeniably one of the most engaging ways to put forth your brand story, we were joined by Meredith Wallace, Business Development Lead of Google where she discussed what are some of the best ways to do storytelling via Youtube and video ads.

EIMS 2019 Storytelling for marketing

Throughout the event, the thing that stood out for me is how when given an opportunity to learn and interact, we all dive head fast and are willing to gain more knowledge. There are many more digital marketing tips and tricks that I learned in EIMS that might come in handy for you when you’re planning to start on storytelling and content writing, so look forward to them in the near future!
