Businesses across the world are still feeling the effects of the recession pulling at their purse strings, which means turning to new ways to market their products.
Jumping on the social media band wagon is high street retailer, GAP. They have chosen to avoid traditional television advertising for its new line and are marketing their ‘Born to Fit’ range on the global networking site, Facebook.
They are hoping the new line of denim wear will reach more consumers through this medium than on TV. The campaign will feature banner ads placed on blogs to state what each page is there to do. The banners have been placed on a lifestyle and entertainment website called popsugar.com and they have titled the journal ‘Born to Strategise.’
Alongside the campaign, GAP, will also be using more traditional marketing methods such as cinema, print and outdoor ads, the purpose of these though is to send consumers to the Facebook page. On the page they have cleverly placed a video of Gap’s fit engineer – Rada Shadick, explaining the inspiration behind the ‘Born to Fit’ range.
More and more consumers are turning to social media for day to day things like finding out the latest headlines and what’s new from manufacturers – the bonus for consumers is that people are able to immediately comment on a product or news story thus giving a positive or negative review. As we discussed in our earlier post, Find a Fortune on Facebook, companies like GAP are starting to abandon their large scale television ads in favour of social media.
Knowing that their peers will be there to assist in their decision making is a comforting thought for consumers, so for a company to get on their right side is highly important in this day and age as one negative comment posted on a social network site could be very damaging.
With recent studies showing that online advertising is just as effective as television it is perhaps understandable that more companies are heading online. Experts in the online marketing sphere have recently suggested that it is necessary for digital advertisers to harness the power of social networking as it offers great campaign opportunities and will inevitably boost the profile of a company.
The Drum Network has launched a new initiative called ‘Create Britain’ which aims to show the world that Great Britain is still an awesomely creative marketplace, despite Brexit.
Create Britain is an online interactive map that invites businesses from the creative industry to contribute a short video to claim their own pin on the map that links to their video clip. The video clips need to answer one question: ‘What makes British creativity so great?’.
When we think of reality headsets, our immediate thoughts go to viewing the world in a virtual reality (VR) from wherever we are in the world. Whether that be your own living room, office or business, VR headsets allow you to transport yourself into a completely different environment and immerse yourself in that world.
This is what makes HoloLens different.
