Home » Digital Marketing » Latest Data for Proposal and Planning

As recently some of you have asked me about the general data of the Digital Vietnam market but must be the freshest to put in your proposals, planning, report for meeting customers or presenting to the boss.

Who usually roam the digital groups will probably find that those information is shared a lot but slightly scattered and easy to get drifted away. I did gather all of those in a place here, if you find it necessary to refer to have the data as well as to understand more about the digital picture in Vietnam.

Some criteria used when I add the below recommendations are:

  1. The studies are conducted by large companies or by who specialized in the field they do
  2. These are the latest, most recent data (2015 – 2016)
  3. These data have a full legimate source

However, you should be noted that:

  1. These studies are not exactly accurate data, you need to rely on your knowledge and experience or self-cross-check with other sources to verify.
  2. If you use data to add to the proposal, it should also be customized for the customer, not everyone is interested in the general information such as the number of mobile users or the usage duration of a mobile user. Information should only be included when it’s relevant, not for decorating.
  3. The research and search for this material are not so difficult. You just only have to think of the keywords you need to find and go to Google or sites like Slideshare, there are myriads of things there for you.
  4. Be sure to look carefully at who posted the research / report and the information is. Does he/she cite the source of the information? Do the research refer to the research method and involve the number of sample used?
  5. In addition to these general data, you will also need specific data of each industry to help your proposal or plan be more complete,
