Yesterday out of boredom I searched #kuwait on Instagram and I hope I never did. All the pics were mostly out of Google, Cheap Ads, Food or texagram ( a stupid app for sharing Notes on Instagram ). Instagram gained a huge number of Kuwaitis since it launched and I won’t be exaggerating if I assume that more people are using it than Twitter nowadays. Twitter became a feed for sharing Instagram pics, with the huge amount of instagrams out there I thought that by searching #kuwait I would have been indulged by some awesome local pics but to my disappointment now I know anyone abroad searching for some images that represent Kuwait he will have a hard time finding a decent one.
Everywhere in Kuwait there is someone either posing for an Instagram pic or holding his mobile in a weird position trying hard to get the perfect short, not to mention all of those teens walking around in malls holding their DSLRs. All of the pervious observation and I would expect finding some decent pics when searching about Kuwait.
Of course I know no one would care about saving our country’s hash tag on Instagram by posting good pics, am I the only one who noticed this !!!
Would you even care about saving #kuwait???
Finally the day all of u and even us here at Q8 Blend been waiting for, the crush it seminar with Gary. The importance of social media and how u can brand ur self in order to grow ur business the key to all of that can be summarized in some points but of course no matter how i can describe it u need to read the book and should have attended the seminar so u may take full benefit of the knowledge to build and grow ur business.
well of course u need to have a good product or a service and then u start ur social media journey. In order to gain more customers and beat or actually CRUSH ur competitors simply u need to care more about ur customers, build a relationship between ur followers and ur company, dont be afraid of showing them that u r a human with all ur political views and hobbies or even music passion just lets ur clients feel they r dealing with a human not just a machine. Dont just promote ur product or service, search the net on what do people care about or what issues they r facing related to ur business and start engaging with them, solve their problem make them feel that they matter to u even if they r not ur customers sooner or later people will come to u & they r gonna be loyal customers and those r the people who will support ur business and help it grow more . So many companies spend a huge amount of money on TV commercials and printed adds while most customers or user r more into one to one service and dealing with humans rather than just reading of hearing an old fashion commercial.
People send more time on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr & many other social websites other than wasting their time watching commercials on TV or in the newspapers. All in all i cant tell how awesome gary was and how much useful info he gave to the one who attended the seminar and im so glad that we even had a private seminar ( Blogger & Gary ) in the morning before the official seminar began.
Finally i would like to thank Hind Al Naheth, Khalid Al Zanki & all the Sponsors of Crush It Seminar.
BTW during the break Zain & ElectroZan held a simple competition if i may call it so and gave a way some pretty good stuff for the attendees & i won with Zain i wont say what i got & all i can say for now that its Sensational ;) Special thank to Zain.
Last Thursday We were invited to join the Crush It challenge sponsored by Burgan Bank, Zain, Cinescap, HighPro & Cinemagic.
Many blogger talked about Gary Vaynerchuk who is considered to be the social media Godfather u may click Here to read more details about gary & his best selling book. If u own a business and u wanna know how to work the social media, to attract customers and to be successful then “Crushing it” is ur key.
The seminar started with Hind Al-Naheth who is the most famous female figure in the social media in K-Town followed by Khalid Alzanki explaining what is the main concept behind crush it & why he wanted to start the crush it challenge. One problem so many businesses here in Q8 r facing is how to benefit from social media and what’s the right way to interact with their clients through social media.
Making a successful business is not only about selling ur product and making profit but its about maintaining ur customer so he/she may buy more and more of ur products which should increase ur revenue and here where the “Crush it” strategy strikes again.
i will stop here and wont say more coz more surprises r coming in the way, but all i can say is start by reading the Book it will give u a clear idea of what u r capable of through scial media. finally “Crush It” is the book im reading for our Ramadan challenge.
Special Thank goes to Hind Al-Naheth for the invitation & Burgan Bank for the Gift Card
With all the hip surrounding the Google+ App for the iPhone I downloaded the app to discover that it’s one of the worst apps in the app store. It lags a lot, unresponsive & it does not have anything new to add. I think it’s just a cheap scam from a developer to make money using Google’s name.
All of u should know one important thing, App 4 Google+ is not developed by Google it’s by a developer called Simone Morellato. The app does not do anything except directing u to Google+ mobile site which u can easily access by going to this link on ur iPhone or iPad http://m.google.com/plus
So dont waste ur money buying it when u can access it on ur browser.
