How Digital Life used word-of-mouth marketing to reach out to friends of fans for its campaign at Comex2011

Organisation’s Name: Digital Life
Facebook Page:
Event: Comex2011
Registration Date: 29 August 2011 – 04 September 2011
Event Date: 01 September 2011 – 04 September 2011

Digital Life had a booth at Comex2011 and wanted to reward fans with access to exclusive Digital Life contest and freebies during the four-day consumer show.

How does it work?

Step 1– Fans hear about the upcoming event on Digital Life Fan Page.

Step 2 – They register their mobile number to get on the guest list, which creates a wall post for their friends to see.

Step 3 – On the day of the event, guests go to the venue and give their mobile number to a clerk at the Digital Life booth. The clerk enters the number into a PC application to check that the guest is registered, which causes a second status update to appear on friends’ news feeds, advertising a future event.


On the first day of announcing fan benefits at Comex2011, Digital Life received a total of 213 registrations, which published the same number of stories for friends to see.

Digital Life continued the registration and check-in throughout the four days of Comex2011, resulting in a total of 402 stories published on the fans’ walls. Taggo automatically links all wall posts to Facebook Sponsored Stories ads to increase impressions among friends. This resulted in both the wall posts and ads creating a total of 814,205 impressions among friends of fans and generated 504 clicks from friends. At the end of Comex2011, Digital Life acquired 1487 new fans.

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 …
