SDNON Annual Summit Panelists Make Case for Brand Reputation Management in Digital Media Age

Published

on

Lagos, Nigeria

Leading PR experts and reputation managers at the 2021 annual summit of Society of Digital Newspaper Owners of Nigeria, SDNON, on Wednesday, December 1, addressed the benefits and challenges associated with the proliferation of media outlets occasioned by digitalization of the media, and its attendant effect on brand reputation.

Participants highlighted the critical role of digital media and innovative approaches to brand reputation management, in a session titled, ‘Corporate Brands, Reputation Management and the Place of Digital Media’. The event which was held at Ambience Café, Oba Akran Avenue, Ikeja, was hosted by Otunba Femi Davies, President of SDNON, while the panelist discussion was moderated by Israel Jaiye Opeyemi, chief consultant and CEO at Chain Reactions.

During his remark, Marketing Mix & Company Nigeria Limited CEO, Akin Adeoya noted that,

“The digital era is creating a new type of billionaire. The small entrepreneur who has mastered the art of creating brands with the…world wide web.

From training programs to cosmetic and beauty products to digital publications, travel and hospitality etc. there is no stopping the man and woman of ideas now.

“Corporate and political leaders can now take on big media enterprises without the fear of any backlash because they have grown the capacity to match them muscle for muscle. It’s a game of numbers. Before he was taken down and “muted”, Donald Trump had 88.7m people eating from his hands and lapping up every word he wrote on twitter! Today, Elon Musk can turn his nose at any PR agency or the CNN’s of this world. How does a corporate leader with half a dozen multi-billion-dollar brands take both PR and Media for granted? Digital media democratization. At the last count he speaks directly to 62.7m individuals! He runs a better and perhaps more efficient PR machine with his social media handles,” he noted.

 

While submitting, Adeoya also noted that traditional media are now endangered species, now playing catch up, in the advent of digital media. He also advised media outlets to create rate cards for editorials, reach out to brands, when they have promotional articles about them, as alternative to loose-end negotiations.

 

In his own address, Ramon Olanrewaju Nasir, the head, External and Media Relations of Africa’s global bank, United Bank for Africa, UBA, said,

“Every company, including financial institutions, lives on its reputation. A good reputation will impact the organization’s ROI. There is a need for an organization’s corporate identity, and what it is believed to stand for, to be in sync with the expectations of consumers and what the external stakeholders are. What financial institutions sell is perception.

“If you wake up to negative news about your financial institution, the first thing that comes to mind as a customer is if you want to keep banking with the institution or you want to withdraw your savings with them. In the digital age, the simple information that you put online resonates globally, and that is why reputation management is a fundamental part of PR these days.”

Chairman and Lead Consultant of TPT International, Tokunbo Modupe posited that,

“Digitalization is very good. It gives room for plurality, and proliferation of content creation, however, it also makes content sieving difficult; every single person that can afford a smartphone now is a publisher. Therefore, it makes brands vulnerable to almost everyone that can wean and push an opinion in public space. This is very difficult for crises mitigation.

“Digitalization is a requisite tool every efficient professional must be acquainted with. With digitization, I can now be in Lagos, and have meetings with clients in Singapore and other parts of the world, Realtime. However, the benefits, so also are the attendant challenges associated with it. It is therefore expedient, to continue to engage stakeholders in the sector for best practices. It is commendable that SDNON decided identify professionals to enable them set standards for best practices in digital media journalism.”

Broadcast Journalist Sulaiman Aledeh in his review, explained how digitalization helped by former employer at Channels TV made news dissemination brief, summarily and instant for social media.

The event was supported by UBA, Access Bank, TPT Int’l, Rite Foods, IDCL, and Ambience Café.

In his tribute, Coker extolled the virtues of his late grandmum, describing her as compassionate and an epitome of love that cared for all. He said Mama’s humility and selfless service to God and humanity were second to none.

According to him: “My special Grandmother, may you rest in the bosom of the lord till we see to part no more.

“These words felt like a dagger to the chest, knowing that you are gone. But I know you will never be forgotten. I know for a fact that I will never forget you and how much you’ve impacted my life. Not only that, but also the lives of every single person you came across. I know for a fact that you touched many lives. Little wonder you were adored so much and I know that they will all miss you to bits.

“You truly were a special, special woman! You may have passed on, but your memories are etched in my heart. In there you will always live on.

“As I write this piece, I do it with a lot of struggle. Losing you on that 23rd of September brought a pain that cut so deep! Thank you for your sacrifices, your care and concern, your love, compassion and everything that you have done for me. Wherever you are. I look back to when I was so little when you put me on your back to pound Jero while mum was at work and also attended to the neighbours who depended on you for so much because they were not lettered.

“You worked so hard and multi-tasked, doing so much at once yet perfectly, helping others. You were more like a rallying point for all the neighbours who all came to you for help, support and guidance. I guess it’s from you and Papa that my Mum and we the children learnt how to be passionate and dedicated to any course we embarked upon.

“You loved your children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren unconditionally. You were truly an epitome of love and taught us all how to effortlessly stand by others genuinely and selflessly. l am proud to have had you as my grandmother. Mama General, I will miss you sorely! I know it is important to be strong for others so as to advance your wonderful legacy.

“When I summoned up the courage to tell Fadekemi about your passing, after she asked about you repeatedly, I was shocked when she hugged me and said, I know my great grandma is resting in Heaven and GOD will look after her. Without a doubt, I know an angel spoke through her and I am certain that indeed you accomplished all that God sent you here to do and he has called you to be with Him.

“I am consoled by the fact that you are in a much better place!

“Love you Mama General. You truly were a treasure to all of us,” He penned.

The late Mrs. Tokunbo was born on 31st August, 1934
