How Christabel_SMM got her groove…

I started the and Christabel_SMM fan page to help Andrew Peters increase traffic to the site using Facebook.

I took this opportunity to volunteer my service as it gave me a chance to experience the advantages of Facebook fanpage over Facebook groups.

A lot can be learned from the last month of activities.

Fan growth is not immediate

Setting up a fanpage is fast and easy, but getting fans may take a longer process.

From this graph, you noticed that it took awhile for fans to join Christabel_SMM fanpage. The first week or so was quite slow with only 14 members. It took lots of interaction to increase the fan base.

I am still trying to determine twhat caused the spike of fans on June 18. Is it because the online show has started and many were trying to find out about Christabel?

As of writing this post, the number Christabel_SMM fans stands at 371 and this was after I threw out the challenge to fans to get more fans to join this fan page in order to beat the other contestants in fanpage standing.

Fanpage is about interaction and contribution

Interaction with the fans as the admin of the fanpage also help to increase the fan count.

One of the contestants, Evelyn_SMM was leading the fanpage race, but the lack of interaction between her admin and her fans resulted in comparative more fan growth then Christabel_SMM fanpage.

Reward your fans

I have been trying my best to get something from the organisers to reward the fans of Christabel_SMM but their responds have been very slow.

If you are looking to create a fanpage, reward your fans occasionally. You could run a simple contest or a short quiz to get the interaction going.

I hope that the organisers will be smart and quick enough to do something that to reward the fans as the fans deserve it for supporting Christabel_SMM.

Remember, the tipping point of a successful social media campaign  is about how you interact with your audience.

If you are thinking of just using social media to push content down, you are not going to get much success in the long run.

You may be popular and you might get quick and sudden spikes in fans, but most important is to keep your fans returning and aim for constant growth.


Hey great post laid out in a very understandable manner.
Your point about "long term goal" VS "short term goal" makes a lot more sense with this case study.

Why is Ramly Burger banned in Singapore?

Yahoo Singapore ran an article of the Ramly Burger by highlighting that it is ban in Singapore.

Yet, the writer from Makansutra failed to address the most important issue of why the Ramly meat patty is banned in Singapore.

A search online easily did highlight that the famous Malaysian meat patty is banned by the AVA but didn't go into details.

Wrote Arlina Arshad for The Straits Times in January 2004,

"But the importing of beef and beef products from Malaysia is not permitted, said theAgri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA).

Selling and supplying them without a permit is also an offence, and offenders can befined as much as $50,000 or jailed two years, or both, said the AVA."

In May of the same year, another article highlighted that a man was even charged in court for "smuggling" the Ramly burger in 2004.

"The AVA said that meat products processed in Malaysian food factories which it had notapproved were banned here.Suzali was yesterday jailed for four month…

Did She Run Or Did She "Just Fake It" For Adidas?

Andrea Chong, a Adidas appointed influencer, posted a photo of herself in the middle of the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2015 and captioned how she was "all smiles" during the run.

Unfortunately for Andrea or the PR agency, one of her readers checked her bib number #75148  at the Marathon's website only to find it to belonging to somebody else.

That somebody else is Kuvin Kuar, a intern at Edelman PR and the bib number had a status "DNF" or did not finished.

This raised the first red flag as one of the rules stated that "A Participants is strictly not allowed to transfer his or her race entry to another party".

This cascaded into perceptions that Andrea herself did not even start or complete the race and was only "planted" by Adidas or the PR agency, Edelman PR, to look pretty in the marathon.

Marketing Magazine noted that Adidas declined to comment about the incident which lead to further speculation that Andrea was possibly just …

Kudos To Huawei 2 Year Warranty For P9 Series

When it comes to smartphones, I think I am jinxed.

For my history of owning smartphones, every time it comes close to the end of the two year contract with my mobile service provider. This time round, it happened to my Huawei P9.

All of a sudden, the LCD screen sort of decolourised. I thought it was a temporary issue but the decolourisation lasted for a few hours. Then the nightmare began.

The touchscreen couldn't be touched. This made it the smartphone a brick.

I thought the Huawei P9 only had one year of warrant. With my contract ending in mid-year, I thought I would have to wait it out till the contract ended and allowed me to buy a new phone under a contract.

Luckily, a friend reminded me that the phone came with a 2 year warranty.

So I decided to go to the Huawei service center, right smack in the center of the city, to see if my phone is under warranty and if Huawei would honour their 2 year warranty.

Thankfully, Huawei isn't as popular as the Samsungs or Apples, and the …
