In a bid to promote digital marketing to entrepreneurs in Cagayan de Oro, Directories Philippines Corporation through its e-Yellow Pages arm recently gathered CDO businesses in a two-day forum held last February 6 – 7, 2014 at the function room of Mesa Restaurant in Centrio Mall.
The event was attended by representatives from various Cagayan de Oro companies including Primavera Residences, the multi-awarded mixed-use condominium complex built in uptown CDO.
The Philippine digital landscape
The forum stressed the importance of digital media in today’s business environment, citing the following significant facts about Filipino consumers on the web:
- 45% of filipinos use the internet
- 33.6M access the web via desktop
- 27.8M Facebook users
- 8.1M mobile internet users
- Average time spent on the internet: 21.5 hours per week
- 81% of Filipino internet users use search engines
For a company’s presence to be felt in the internet, businesses must capitalize on these data and create an effective digital marketing plan.
Mindanao’s first multi-awarded green building
Ms. Cheryll Barriga, the General Manager of Primavera Residences, also spoke during the event about the 10-storey twin towers in uptown CDO.
“Primavera Residences, which takes inspiration from the natural ventilation scheme of a termite mound, has been lauded for its unique design. The cross-ventilation system creates constant air circulation and integrates passive cooling techniques with on-site production of renewable energy,” says Ms. Barriga.
“These features, together with its prime uptown location and proven real estate appreciation of more than 10% per annum makes the property a very valuable investment,” she added.
