Social Media Topshop loves social media Itâ€™s a beautiful thing to be able to interact with customers and to listen to their opinions about the brand and products, advertise to the targeted audience for nearly nothing but have a chance to build up brand around a more intimate customer experience. Topshop is using social media in the right way during these years. The main target group of Topshop is young people and people who love fashion, especially British style. They have their own facebook page, twitter account. And they actively post all kinds of promotions and new collections in a very fashionable and attractive way. Topshop on Youtube, they post make up tutorials about new make up, dressing style. Those videos show how to make simple and beautiful looks with products from Topshop and provide the customers more information about how to use their products. Topshop send newsletters regularly to inform customers about the latest collection, sales, trends and fashion tips. Personally, I like this brand a lot, since Topshop is taking care of their target group and know what exactly the target groups want. There are so many things we could learn from Topshop to make the brand more vividly with customers and satisfied the needs and wants of customers.
Cheap Monday wins worst social media usage award. Itâ€™s not often that such a large and loved brand fails to embrace the business end of social media. Enter Cheap Monday. Their website appears to support Twitter, Facebook, Delicious and StumbleUpon, but only two of those four link you through to a proper function. When you click on Twitter, you are not brought to a Cheap Monday Twitter handle, but are brought to a Twitter page where a Cheap Monday tweet is pre-written in your feed. Cheap Monday is an excellent brand with pieces we want and price points we can actually afford; it is pity that the company is so behind on the social media trend.

Community Building Running a community around my brand is essential for companies who want to keep good contacts with customers and get involved in the online conversation with all the people. Basically, it will start work with find my target group through existing social media like Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube to get contacts with all the customers. There are three ways might be good to hold a community successfully. 1. Customer focus A community is all about individuals and their thinking and ideas should be taken care of. As a community who is responsible to run a community, he needs to listen what the customers is talking about, what they want. And of course, try to inform all the members though different social medial channels. It is important to let all the members and customers know where you are, who you are and what do you do. 2. Brand reputation The main reason to keep all the members stay in the community and attract more people is to create the brand reputation. We should hold regularly small prize for the members to encourage them continually to stay in the community and use word of mouth to spread the community by all the members who had good experience within the community and also the brand fans who always accept the brand to help to promote it. 3. Traffic Internet brings a lot of traffic. In order to have as much traffic as the community can, we should keep promote the community actively. And also, use the traditional communication media channels like Facebook, twitter, blog and any other forms to inform all the customers about the community. The good example of community could be Tripadvisor. TripAdvisor.com is the worldâ€™s largest travel site that assists customers in gathering travel information, posting reviews and opinions of travel related content and engaging in interactive travel forums. The website services are free to users, who provide most of the content. This is available for different countries and languages. They have an interesting slogan â€˜get the truth, then goâ€™ that shows us clearly that the high trustiness and reputation they have. Since this website is made by the travels who shares their own experiences. All the commands on the website are made by the normal people around the world; this is a big reason that more and more people like to read the commands from previous visitors who are not for adverting or any economic use, purely for personal use. Now, Tripadvisor have its apps available for smart phones and also Ipad.

Workfield experience Creative Amsterdam 11-13 May!
I was so gald that I had chance to go to creative Amsterdam this year. Creative Amsterdam is an three days event of creative industry with creative companies and individuals. It is a very good opportunity for all the creative people to share experience and exchange ideas. I think I have learned a lot during the event and I met a lot of amazing people from creative industry. I joined few lectures. The speekers are from different working area in creative industry. Such as Photographer Pieter Henket who was photographer of the most famouse singer Lady Gaga and he achived a big success in NEW YORK. He showed us some works he did and shared his experience with creative industry and how he built up his working career. During the Animation lecture, the speaker worked with the film Ice Age 1-3 and Despicable Me which are my favorite films. I even watched the the clip he made which did not show in the movie. And I also met Duncan Stutterheim who is one of the founder of my dream company ID&T. All in all, this event is great and I really loved it! Hope you also had same feeling. If u still wanna to know more about it, please check their website.
