What Does Facebook Opening Up Physical Stores Imply?

14 November 2018

2 mins read

With Facebook being caught up in the US Midterms Elections, you’d figured they will be too busy for any other shenanigans. You were wrong.

Despite having to put out fires all over the place, Facebook managed to launch 9 physical stores at Macy’s around the U.S., which will be opened until February 2019.

Why is the biggest digital marketing giant launching physical retails?

Despite this move, Facebook has clarified that they are not actually advocating physical retails or looking into one.

Every Facebook physical store contained products from small businesses, which have employed the advertising tools at either Facebook or Instagram. As a result, there were a wide variety of products from small businesses, including some rather peculiar ones as well.

The aim was to give small businesses a hand and provide them with a physical retail store, while Facebook covered the costs and decor. Facebook has always supported small brands in various ways, and it should not surprise anyone.

The surprising aspect is how they did it.

Facebook Marketplace and Facebook Advertising are some of the solutions they’ve developed for small businesses, and all of them are digital. With the exponential growth of ECommerce, Facebook utilising a physical store to help small brands is out-of-character for them.

What do these physical stores of Facebook imply?

Budget is what holding many eCommerce stores from having a physical store. If given a choice, small businesses would not mind having a physical store.

Physical stores are very helpful tools to have, and one of the key benefits is the boosting of brand profiles and reputation.

Having a physical store ensures the customers a contact point in the event of any issues, which puts their minds at ease. It also allows the experiencing of the products on a deeper and higher level, which a digital screen cannot afford.

Therefore, a physical store has many additional benefits for any brands and businesses looking to expand, making it a worthy investment.

Should brands be focusing on digital or outdoor?

If you have the budget to do so, outdoor marketing is an important and overlooked tactic to consider.

Our advice is to create a strategic marketing strategy that is consistent and connects with the audiences well, whether it is digital or outdoor.

The new-age marketing strategy should focus on utilising an omnichannel strategy – using multichannel to provide a seamless shopping experience.  In fact, some brands have already begun rolling out this specific strategy.

However, this requires proper planning and tailoring the experience in every channel that suits your brand and resonates with your audience.

 

Want to create a marketing strategy that is worthy of your brand?

Speak to our branding team that has experience in handling both outdoor and digital strategies. We’re confident that we will be able to create the right marketing strategy for your brand that is creative and effective.

5 Ways To Make Your Brand Crazy, Rich & Asian Like In The Movies

Think the box-office Crazy Rich Asians is sending the world into a frenzy? Well, good branding can, too! When the movie hit the shores of US, it smashed records for romantic-comedies in recent times. By the time Crazy Rich Asians premiered in Singapore, it was already generating hype for its unique setting and cast. One thing’s for sure, we all can agree that Newton Food Centre does not have the best satay in Singapore.

Based on a book written by Kevin Kwan, it depicts the story of a group of rich Asians in the setting of a grand wedding with dramatic twists and turns.

Crazy Rich Asians is a trailblazer in its cast and setting and received significant success in a predominantly Caucasian men industry.

But what has the success of a locally filmed movie got to do with your brand?

3 Ways To Direct Traffic With Voice Command

With an increasing amount of consumers using voice commands, brands have started to incorporate and cater to them.

The same applies to digital marketing as well.

But what has voice commands got to do with digital marketing?

(Don’t worry, we’ll get there)

Siri, Google Assistant and Alexa are some of the current in-use voice commands, but there could be a potential new player in voice command technology.

Facebook has begun testing voice commands in its Messenger platform earlier this month.

If and when it rolls out, voice commands would be a bonus supplementary feature, in addition to its Augmented Reality games.

With an increasing amount of development towards voice commands within digital and social media, what can brands do to adapt to this rising trend?

The answer is simple: Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).

Voice command technology often relies on traditional search engines to provide results to its users.

To start off, if your brand is not implementing SEO on your page (what are you doing?!), start now.

SEO can be tough, but a qualified professional can help make things easier.

The logical next step would be to optimise your page towards voice searches.

Yes, but how?

Facebook Ad Transparency and What It Means for You

After Facebook’s recent scandal with leaked user information and the US Election fiasco, the social media giants have decided to become more transparent with their platform. In early April, Facebook announced they were making ads transparent and marking political ads as special cases.

This has been a long time coming, given the chatter on Russian meddling since the US Elections fiasco ended 2 years ago.

How does this affect your business?

Ad transparency means anyone and everyone can now view all the ads you are running. This includes your target audience and unfortunately, your competition. The good news is that they can only see the content and the type of ad but nothing on the data and statistics that come with it.

So what should you do?
