Encompassing the latest trends, stats and news on the mobile and online marketing landscape of SA, these videos are informative and of interest to all digital marketing enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and company owners.

McCarthy's presentation brought the picture of digital media into the unique South African context. For marketers, it is about realising that digital and traditional media are both necessary in getting brand messages across effectively.

Morrissey cast an optimistic eye on South Africa's digital landscape, pointing to the fact that it is the third fastest growing internet population in the world. Consulting an array of graphs, he pointed to the reality of sustainable market growth in this thriving arena.

Goldstuck commented on the ever-increasing growth of smartphone usage in South Africa. With Android continuing to lead the pack in this key emerging market, he presented some strong viewpoints on the correlation between the growth of the local internet economy and the price of data.
