twenty-two. in love. student. Blogging about: Marketing, TV, & my life.
There are so many types of ways to measure if a company is getting enough out of social media. Fans, Followers, Likes, etc. can be used, but are they actually important? Mashable explored some social metrics that actually matter and will prove that social media has a place in a business. I tweeted this article already, but I loved it so much I wanted to add my own thoughts on!
originally from my other blog: sharkmates:
I’m not sure if any of you have ever seen the show Fashion Star, but it’s pretty interesting. I was flipping through the channels last Friday night due to 1) Boredom & 2) lack of brain activity due to finals.
Anyway, this show Fashion Star, is about a bunch of designers who want to get their designs into big name stores a la Macy’s, Express & Sak’s. Okay, okay sounds like any old reality competition show, however they add an extra twist! I believe the final prize is having an exclusive deal with one (or maybe all?) of the brands. But, each week there is a fashion show, and the buyers from each store bid on the clothes if they like the design. If they win the bidding war, the clothes are then automatically up for sale on the store’s website.
I’ve been away for the past few months blogging on sharkmates, but I’ll be transitioning back to this blog for the time being. Hopefully things will be settling down as I get ready to graduate (!!!) and i’ll have more free time to blog about some of my favorite things: marketing, life, TV, etc. Check back in the next few days/weeks/months for new posts!
