5 New Facebook Reactions that will Make Brands Focus Well into Content Marketing


How a simple emoji can help your content marketing strategy

The digital world is a fast paced community. One day you are trending, the next you are out. Last 24 February 2016, Facebook officially made their Facebook Reactions button available globally. Aside from the usual “like” button, they also added “love”, “haha”, “wow”, “sad”, and “angry” button options in order for the audience to give their precise feeling to shared posts that they see and read on their feed.
Is your content marketing strategy working? With the new Facebook Reactions feature, brands can now gauge and foresee their standing in the market based on their fans direct reactions. Receiving a “love” reaction will somewhat occur that the brand is doing well in catering their loyal fans. The “haha” and “wow” are also two positive reactions that will either determine if the fans are amazed or entertained with the content. Lastly, the “sad” and “angry” emojis are, perhaps, the least reactions a brand would want to receive; however, it will connote a difference if the published post is really depressing, or the brand is not well-focused to their fans.

Establish Your Brand with the Help of Facebook Reactions Feature

No matter what reaction a brand gets on their social media campaigns and engagement posts, they should accept it and see these reactions as good feedback in utilizing their brand’s mission and goals. Plus, they will be able to respond accordingly not only to their fans but also to their content marketing strategy. Brands will be able to know if they should alter their current social media theme and content or not.

Social Media Strategy to Gain On and Connect with Chinese Users


The market in China and the Philippines are significantly different in many aspects even for their economies and local industries. In the face of digital revolution, the difference in the digital market between two of these regions can be observed through a quick look of China’s condition. For brands who want to expand their operations in China, it’s important to take into consideration how volatile the Chinese market can be and how Chinese users are as unpredictable.

It’s better to apply your social media strategy to the users on WeChat and Weibo and other social platforms.

Digital Marketing in China

As you all well know, digital marketing scene of China is far more different than most markets throughout the globe. There are no Facebook, no Twitter and even Google inside the vast country. No internet user has the access to these social media and internet platforms because they are prohibited by the government. This injunction gave way for Chinese social media platforms a great head start and eventually grew into massive social networks that span all throughout the land. It’s better to apply your social media strategy to the hundreds of millions of users on WeChat and Weibo and other social platforms.

Social Environment and Culture

For international brands that yearn to get a piece of the Chinese market, they still need to use digital marketing platforms like WeChat. But even with securing an official account with these apps, setting off a campaign will likely spell into disaster without taking into consideration the diverse culture of China. To make it more complicated, some social platforms and mobile apps are not as open as you would expect. Brands cannot just spread their mobile or video marketing content to all the users. Conversations in apps like WeChat happen in private; even Weibo gets some censorship from time to time.

Brands need to work hard into setting a connection to Chinese consumers but remember, in mobile marketing, it doesn’t happen overnight. Businesses have to find a way to establish an intimate connection with the audience and drive them to a one-on-one conversation. It is only then that you can call your video marketing or social media strategy a success. Eventually, you may now use integrated marketing and initiate O2O campaigns to drive in more store traffic.

Key Functions that Chinese Users Prefer to Use

Because of the absence of other social marketing platforms, the Chinese users have their own set of preferred means to connect with brands. Through word of mouth, consumers are spreading messages throughout their network to endorse products and just refer them to other brands. Social media strategy of brands are centered on this fact. Through WeChat, the millions of consumers in China carry out their purchases through mobile. QR codes can become very handy with brands because of its various functions for daily use. It allows a whole new set of means to engage fans.

Indeed, tapping into the large market of China may become hard on brands well-known outside the country. But with our digital agency in the Philippines, IH Digital Philippines, we can guide you into establishing a foothold in the social market through WeChat – the biggest mobile social platform in mainland China.

Through huge events that promote the brand’s powerful message, backed by a variety of international and local celebrities, Louis Vuitton Series 2 succeeded in raising brand awareness among consumers and ultimately propelling their already established standing among the inundated industry of luxury brands. The successful social media strategy promoted WeChat sharing on people’s social networks and amplified people’s knowledge of their new products, while creating a different kind of virtual experience – this only leads to more people visiting their live event in Beijing.


Now we see here another good example of employing a simple yet powerful marketing communications tool, QR Codes! Consumers and other users were reached by the brand with content marketing tactics to entice them in seeing the exhibition rather than looking at updates online. They also serve visitors a special treat through games. This allowed people to scan different codes and let them answer a variety of questions while being completely immersed in the exhibition.


The brand continues to gain positive recognition throughout China, since launching its WeChat campaign in October 2014. Our social media agency in Singapore managed The Shilla Duty Free Singapore’s WeChat account and made use of WeChat’s features and video marketing to increase the brand’s number of followers.

Naver Marketing : Naver Blogs and the Power of Naver Search

digital-marketing-korea-digital-agency-singaporeKoreans search online for almost everything. This consumer trend is greatly significant for marketers if they want to attempt Digital Marketing in Korea.

Naver Search: What does “Search” mean to Koreans?

A Korean professional working in Seoul is going to meet his friend after work, in Gangnam, the center of Seoul. And unconsciously he searches “Good restaurants in Gangnam”, and reads through the reviews that Korean bloggers have posted on their blogs.

Meanwhile, another Korean professional is interested to buy a luggage for her first overseas trip during her long holiday. She has no time for offline shopping, so she has decided to buy one online. The first thing she did was to search “durable luggage recommendations”. On the search result appeared a list of pretty luggage, where she found her “right one” and bought it.

Koreans search online for almost everything – shopping, food, product reviews and travel ideas, to name a few, basically because Koreans tend to review pros and cons before purchasing almost anything. This unique Korean consumer trend is greatly significant that brand marketers in Korea should not take a second though about taking this into consideration when targeting the Korean market.

Korean consumers search relevant keywords online and recognize the brands that appear often on the search results. This leads to the “Zero/One moment of truth”.

It is therefore significant for marketers to consider Naver Marketing, which covers Naver Search, Naver Blog and Naver Blog Management with the aim of effective Korea Marketing.

Naver Search: A service that goes together with Blog Management

Naver Search aims to provide more convenient, precise and faster search results. Naver analyzes Naver users’ online search environment and patterns to be able to offer optimized search results.

Recently, to counter DAUM’s new Kakao Search Service – a mobile-optimized search service – Naver launched Multimedia Search followed by Regional Search, Tag Search and Real-time Search. The launch of these new search services by Naver was interpreted as a sign that Naver is building mobile-friendly search environment, responding to overall change of online search behavior – from PC search to mobile search.

Blog Management: Paying Attention to Personalized Information, Consumer Behavior, and Consumers’ Interest

Korean consumers search relevant keywords online and recognize the brands that appear often on the search results

Naver is now on its track to change from desktop search to mobile search. Desktop search offers broad information as compared to mobile search, which provides more customized information.

At this juncture, customer behavior patterns should be contain deeper, more human and quality analyses, rather than the classic consumer analysis which measures by demographic ways in the past such as age, gender, occupation and the like. Although these basic information are still vital, there are more quality information and data that can lead to better optimization of digital marketing korea actions.

The Search Ads trend, in the same way, did not remain constant. Not long ago, it was enough with simply setting a specific duration that the Ads will run online. Today, however, Search Ads target specified people via RTB (Real-Time Bidding).

When it comes to Blog Management, focusing on blog content itself is essential to make blog visitors – who visited the blog through relevantkeywords search – stay longer on the blog. This will only be possible when a blog is filled with high-quality content. How will you do this without making your blog flood with focus keywords? Three things: 1. Understand the content plan; 2. Mention specific keywords with clear verbs or action such as “travelling in Manila for vacation”; and 3. Mention the keywords frequently but not to the point of destroying your piece. Remember, quality content with relevant keywords always win the search.

Whether your office is located inside or outside Korea, you can market your products and services to the Korean market through Naver blog.
