App Review : SodaCard App

One of the hottest new apps on the Hong Kong market is the SodaCard app. SodaCard is a rewards company that works with different restaurants and establishments around Hong Kong that provides rewards to customers based on their visits to each place. All Soda cards and the app are complimentary and are designed to be used at affiliated establishments to provide loyalty rewards. The customer receives points per check in with the app which provides location based services for checking in. The rewards are different at each establishment and being able to cash out the rewards is different as well.
For instance, if the customers have checked in and received a certain amount of points, there are different rewards with each establishment and a different reward system. Notably, it is easy to understand that with the more points collected the bigger the reward. For instance, Hokkaido Dairy Farm, whom is a restaurant member of the SodaCard App, offers milk teas, lunch sets and snacks as their rewards. It is to be noted that the SodaCard app only requires customers to check in at the establishments and does not require purchases.
The SodaCard app has checkin points available near a point of sale where the customers are encouraged to take a physical card or use their phone app to take a picture. Both foreign and local establishments have decided to get this app and help contribute to their business as well as the entire Hong Kong F&B market. The Soda app has been developed to drive brand loyalty and awareness in the region and it seems to be a success so far.
The SodaCard team created a sleek and sexy Soda app that keeps the customer engaged and visually pleased. The app is easy to access and streamlined so there is no questioning when it comes navigation. The app is delivered in Chinese or English and the app design is flawless in either language.

營銷專家六招助你在 Social Media 大展拳腳

有人說成功的銷售員是開路先鋒,需要不斷挖空心思尋覓新的銷售途徑,還要快人一步到達「藍海」,直達第一個金銀島。九十年代互聯網興起,電子商貿成為低成本、零租金的銷售途徑,蔚然成風,炙手可熱。時至今天,能瘋魔全球、讓各行各業爭相涉獵、成為百家必爭之地的又是什麼?

虛擬世界聚人氣
所謂書中自有黃金屋,那麼「面書」當中是否埋著更大的金礦?做生意講人脈、銷售講人脈、市場推廣也講人脈。自從社交平台冒起,開啟了源源不絕、取之不盡用之不竭的人脈源。
無論在 Facebook、微博、Linked-in 以至四方八面的網誌及討論區,都可認識數之不盡的新朋友,又可讓無窮無盡的人認識自己,不費分文推廣自己品牌、成為眾人偶像、擁有大班追隨著。
如夢似幻的社交平台,對銷售人員來說是驚是喜還是一瞬即逝的泡沫?這些得來不費功夫的人脈有何效用?懂得回答這個問題的人不多。比方說,大家只要在 Facebook 搜尋一些商業機構的專頁,便高下立見。有些公司在網頁內放新聞稿,無人有興趣來;有些甚少更新,被別人放了不相關的宣傳內容也不自覺,也管不著去「清雜草」。這些專頁意義何在?是否名存實亡?
綜觀全球最成功的 Facebook 專頁,每星期至少登刊三至四則新資訊,內容並非硬銷、直銷及千篇一律的產品宣傳,反而會為讀者帶來新知識、啟發或驚喜,還不時透過大眾關心的調查,或饒富趣味的遊戲與讀者保持互動,粉絲人數與日俱增。社交平台的作用是交朋友和分享生活趣味,內容自然要引起大眾興趣。
營銷的使命
社交平台營銷戰,有很多人只著眼於成效與回報。例如多增一個粉絲是否能多賣一件產品或股價多升一點?抱著為利是圖的心態,根本無法在社交平台扎根,更遑論建立穩健的橋頭堡。致勝之道在於雙贏:吸引粉絲的同時,務必考慮給粉絲帶來什麼價值。假如透過專頁提供實用資訊、教育和生活知識,讓大家得到幫助和啟發。
社交平台的人脈既來自虛擬世界,自然有爆破一天。千方百計、處心積累在社交平台積累絲紛及瀏覽量,並以這些數字定成敗。但當平台停止運作或倒閉,人氣豈不毀於一旦?
因此,社交平台的營銷之道在於當下互動與交流。這一刻能吸引大眾注意,帶來創優增值的體驗,就是一種成就。這種成就並非決取於商業成果,而在於為大眾甚至網上世界帶來的貢獻。唯有抱持這種心態,才能真正打開互聯網的銷售網絡,跨越任何平台建立備受愛戴的品牌。
專家送上 6 招實戰祕訣
1. 設身處地 – 別只看建立專頁的目的,要多想網民喜歡這個專頁的原因。以一家資訊保安公司為例,粉絲希望見到的並非公司的新訊息、委任了哪位要員或得到什麼業界殊榮,而是有關病毒、黑客及安全威脅的新情報,以至化解資訊危機的實用貼士。
2. 結合時代 – 貼文內容別孤芳自賞,要切合時代趨勢和熱門話題,才能引起大眾共鳴、得到廣泛轉載;合適的話可以自行轉載至其他專頁或群組,只要題材適用,自然不會吃閉門羹。
3. 爭取互動 – 除了單方面貼文,不妨與粉絲多作互動。例如搞個小調查或選舉,讓大家盡抒己見。這樣一方面讓大家「玩得盡興」,一方面可以多了解粉絲們的喜好和偏愛,以便設計未來貼文的題材。
4. 禮上往來 – 搞Social Media最重要是Incentive。有人會舉行網上比賽或問題遊戲送出小禮品,也有人會提供實用貼士和新知,以增加粉絲持續瀏覽和追看的興趣。粉絲沒有責任要常常捧場,有內容、有驚喜自然不乏支持者。
5. 帶領潮流 – 網上世界爭分奪秒,今天的新知,明天或許已變成舊聞。重要是跳出框架開闊思維,不斷涉獵別人未觸及的範圍及題材,快人一步帶來意想不到的驚喜。
6. 不斷變化 – 網上世界屬多媒體領域,別只管用文字表達內容,可多用影像和視像。據統計,字數愈少的貼文愈能吸引人。只要恰如其分,一幅貼題和創新的圖片可能獲得喜出望外的回應及點擊率。多花心思、多作嘗試自然能夠不斷進步。
