Beware the Facebook Xmas Gift Voucher scam!


Tis the season… and whilst we are distracted, strung out and looking for a few extra dollars to splurge on Christmas Gifts, one company is really taking advantage.. Posing as Australian retailer JB Hi FI, they are asking people to click a link and “like” their gift voucher giveaway, which has a counter on how many vouchers remain to be given away. A message is then posted to the persons wall that includes a link to the fake offer and the words “Thank You” which the user has had to type in to “enter the competition” making it look like a genuine competition.

This is a classic example of  how a compelling offer can go viral… the lure of a limited number of high value (but not too high) and a time limit is extremely appealing to users.

We aren’t sure what the implications are of clicking this link, however we encourage all of our readers to attempt to “unlike” the page and remove the comment from your Facebook profile to prevent the further spread of this scam.

Topshop lands in Australia and uses Social Media to engage


Its not like that they actually need to, but Topshop are heavily promoting their long waited arrival in Australia by using Social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

The mega fashion retailer is opening its doors on Thursday to the general public, but in the meantime are offering passes to its opening party on Wednesday night, the hottest ticket in town, via a “treasure hunt” using Facebook and Twitter.

The retailer known for it’s fast fashion appeals to women 18-35 and is using social networking to promote its arrival in Melbourne (Sydney and Perth to come in 2012) by reaching out to their customers where they hang out online… facebook and twitter! They are also leveraging “influencers” by inviting fashion bloggers and online personalities to the launch on Wednesday rather than just traditional “A listers” A great lesson for small businesses in “fishing where your fish are” and being relevant and contextual when speaking to their audience.

Great new stats from Social Media dude Jeff Bullas with some insights into who the 800 million Facebook users and 200 million Twitter users actually are and what they are doing on the site.

Interesting insights worth considering when thinking about  how you interact with your customers via social networks.

Skeletons in your closet? Reputation Management 101

Skeletons in your closet? Reputation Management 101


Got something to hide? Consider shutting down your social networking profiles and batterning down the hatches, because there IS such a thing as bad publicity and it doesn’t discriminate.

You might not be a high profile sports person who has a public life for people to air their dirty laundry about you and your personal life, to hundreds and potentially thousands of people via the web but you do have a reputation to protect.
Consider what impact someone with intent (and not the honourable kind) may do to your reputation… think about how this will impact on future relationships and  employment opportunities.

Emily works with a number of brands and organisations in educating its staff and representatives on how social media and reputation management can both enhance and cripple a business and their own personal brand. From television personalities, to professional sports people and CEO’s the strategies remain the same…. there IS such thing as bad publicity and unlike traditional media, social media isn’t forgotten when the newspaper is used to line the budgie cage at the end of the day.

Understanding the basics of reputation management and how social media can effect your personal brand is a must for all members of your organisation and having a plan in place to avoid these situations is a must. Emily’s workshops are designed for high profile individuals who are exposed to the media and cover off the basics right through to worst case scenario.

whether or not your staff or representatives are willingly engaging in social media or not, they need to be aware of the risks and how to avoid potentially damaging scenarios. All workshops are tailored to your business and attendees requirements.

For more information and to book your workshop please visit www.emilydoig.com or contact the studio on  9016 0717
