Service Hero Or A Marketing Fail

by Mohd in Bla Bla Bla, Kuwait

Few weeks ago we got invited by service hero to help them promote their survey. Probably you have heard about them and how they try to collect customers opinions through their survey measuring service quality across different sectors and industries in K-Town. Everything was smooth and great until Service Hero decided to come up with a so called competition to motivate bloggers in promoting them and there is nothing wrong with that unless you are just making something out of plane air and trying to promote it & under estimating blogger’s mind. So here is their so called prizes they are offering for the blogger who will deliver the the highest number of direct link to them.

1- Having an active role in the community and driving readers to express their opinions in the Service Hero survey.

2- Announcing the winning blogger through Service Hero’s social media accounts to gain more readers.
3- Attending the service hero ceremony and having a chance to meet companies senior executives.

 

Did you get what i mean by their so called competition ? If not well lets go through each prize they are offering and analyse it.

1- Having an active role in the community and driving readers to express their opinions in the Service Hero survey, actually all bloggers are doing that already since the day they started blogging and even before Service Hero existed plus we are doing it for free & I dont consider blogging a business.

2- Announcing the winning blogger through Service Hero’s social media accounts to gain more readers, Who ever follows their social media accounts are either interested in their service and not interested in reading or just came to know them through another social media website (Blog, website, Forum or even newspapers) which basically means they read blogs, forums and they know about blogs already.

3- Attending the service hero ceremony and having a chance to meet companies senior executives, well 90% of bloggers already met them or at least the executives who totally understand the importance of social media or have means to communicate with them, so again and again its not a prize plus we all know that during these ceremonies no one remembers who is who  and the executives did only attend to have award.

When they sent the email I tried to ignore it coz it but I couldnt help giving them a piece of my mind & I was so glad they accept constructive criticism,  & they replied to my email trying to elaborate on something that already didnt make sense, just to make thing clear I DONT WANT a materialistic prize nor any blogger does I would prefer if they offer a prize for they people helping them in their survey.

We are not competing in their so called competition & I actually did advice them to hire some marketing expert coz they definitely need one & to never under estimate bloggers or people in general. It totally burns my mind & I tried to find Marketing For Dummies in some libraries so i may send it to them as a gift from Q8 Blend but i couldnt find it so please Service Hero if you find the book above buy it & READ it. Im not a marketing expert & you all know Im an engineer but I can notice marketing fail when i see one.

Finally Im giving them the stamp below till further notice.

 

What do you think guys ? plz share your opinion down below.

Mr DoucheBag

Mr DoucheBag

This person is not a stranger to all of us, we all have seen those buffed up guys walking around malls & gyms with their skinny baby size T-shirts. To think of it most of them r actually on steroids to be buffed up like that. I wont deny that some of them worked all their lives to achieve this kind of body type but to be honest those guys wont be bragging all the time about their muscles and how handsome they r or even how many girls r chasing them because they fell in love so deeply with their unique and perfect physic.

So i found this perfect song to dedicate to all of those Romeos on steroids. Its says all on behalf of me 🙂 and they r every where not only here in Q8 & all have the same personality 😉

 

 

Too bad those dummies wont understand it but there is always google translate one click aways

Star Academy

by Mohd in Music, TV

Star Academy

فازت المصرية نسمة محجوب بلقب “ستار أكاديمي” في موسمه الثامن متفوقة على مواطنها أحمد عزت والسورية سارة فرح في الحلقة النهائية للبرنامج الشهير. وحصدت نسمة 48.37% من أصوات الجمهور وحل أحمدثانيا برصيد 29.80% من الأصوات وفي المركز الثالث جاءت فرح برصيد 21.83%.
وخالفت نسمة التوقعات التي رجحت كفة فرح بعد تأهل أحمد للنهائي، إذ كان معجبو فرح ينتظرون تشتت الأصوات المصرية بين أحمد ونسمة لصالح نجمتهم السورية.

وأحيت الفنانة نجوى كرم الحلقة الأخيرة من البرنامج العربي الشهير الذي تبثه قناةLBC

 

I dont believe that Star Academy is still going on!!!!

I remember the first season when it started 8 years ago and we actually thought that a star is gonna be born, even people who were not into music much watched it coz i think it was the first reality shows back then. We all enjoyed watching them on their daily lives and fights and of course their romance adventures. That was 8 years and if u come to think of it since then NO star have been born or graduated from what they call Academy only young singers who then turn to acting or introducing programs & failing after that. If the main idea behind the program or Academy fails why they r still making it !?

Should we blame the people for voting to the wrong singer ??
