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…

Those Who Gamble Online Have Poorest Control - NCG Survey In 2012

Singapore will soon exempt local operators, Singapore Pools and Turf Club, from online gambling ban and the sites will be ready in November 2016.

Ministry of Home Affairs explained that a complete ban on remote gambling drives demand and activities underground, and may create larger incentives for criminal syndicates to target Singapore."

Yet in a 2012 survey by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCG) found that those who gamble online have the poorest control.

For those who indulged in online gambling, 30.4% said they gambled for a longer period than they planned to, 33.3% gambled with more money than they planned and 29.2% gambled more frequently they planned to. 
Will launching the online gambling sites be like opening a Pandora Box that will create more issues in the future?

A Very Small Chicken Or An Oversized Popcorn Chicken?

Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Singapore Facebook Page recently received a complaint of the size of the chicken being served at KFC.

Barnabas Ng took a photo of his chicken from KFC which showed it to be almost the size of the KFC small container. It also looked like a an oversize popcorn chicken.

Wrote Barnabas,

"Hi KFC, is this your new standard size for a chicken? I order 3 piece meal and 2 pieces including this so called original recipe chicken is smaller than the size of the cap of ur small mash potato.

Have you guys try to cut cost so much that you are offering half a size chicken pieces for a full price meal? It is just getting from bad to worse"

KFC Singapore did reply to Barnabas for him to PM his mobile number but Barnabas has yet to receive any calls from KFC Singapore, as of this posting.

Maybe chickens are also shrinking with the current climate change?
