Campaign Title: Digital Life Fan Club 842 check-in fans generated 1,851,231 impressions, 1,574 clickthroughs and 1,567 new fans in just four days at IT Show 2012
Launch Date: 07 March 2012

Most social media agencies will tell brands to get on the social media bandwagon to engage fans at events; they often do it with no clear way to identify fans. Some resort to using social mobile tools like Foursquare to engage fans. Such methods often do not generate the desired results.

Take Lenovo for an example. At Sitex 2010, Lenovo launched a Foursquare campaign and predicted they could achieve a minimum of 30 check-ins a day. During the four day event, they only received a total of 16 check-ins (

At the recent IT Show 2012, Digital Life too wanted to reward their Facebook fans by launching their Facebook Fan Club.  Registered fans were reward with Digital Life premiums, discount vouchers and a chance to participate in their lucky draw at the IT Show 2012.

How does it work?

Prior to the IT Show, Digital Life posted a QR code in their weekly issue to get readers to register as fan club members. Then, during the IT Show, fans visited the Digital Life booth and told the counter staff their mobile numbers. The staff entered it into the Taggo POS application to check the fan in. Once identified as a fan, the staff gave the fan club benefits.

What were the results?

1,624 readers scanned the QR code oriented in Digital Life prior to the IT Show.

In just four days of The IT Show, 842 fans checked in at the Digital Life booth to enjoy their fan benefits. The stories published by each check-in generated a total of 1,851,231 story impressions, entirely among friends, and a total of 1,669 friends clicked on the check-in story to learn more about the Digital Life Facebook Page.

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?
