How do Japanese seniors use the mobile internet?
This is a PDF based deck created for LinkedIn. It covers research from the Mobile Society Research Institute, a part of telco NTT DoCoMo, looking at how those in their sixties and seventies access the Internet.
I wanted to present the research with my own conclusions on LinkedIn as part of my networking efforts. The basic process I went through was:
- Convert the data prepared by MSRI into Apple Number spreadsheets. This made the numbers easier to look at and understand
- Create the Keynote file from a template. I had to adapt the chart templates to fit the data, including settling on the blue/red convention for male/female distinctions in the data. Each chart also has a simple text conclusion
- I sourced extra data from MSRI that provided additional context. Some of this wasn't used, although it helped frame my assessment and conclusions
- I formed my own conclusions about the data, what it was telling us and how it might influence our future decisions in supplying services to Japanese seniors
- After finalizing the design, it was exported to a PDF file and uploaded to LinkedIn, shared with a brief summary.
The images below are the full deck. Alternatively, you can view the LinkedIn post and how the carousel appears.
Sorry, not available
The LinkedIn carousels take flack from some quarters, but I think they're a useful tool when used correctly. Setting up a template and creating carousels becomes a relatively quick process. Gathering the data, building the PDF and getting it posted took me a little over two hours. Not bad for 4,000 impressions, a few likes and some leads.
