My Social Media Week GIF Reactions

This past week on Social was one for the books! Let me get straight into it.

1. When you want to start a relationship with a new blogger and he/she is not into your brand and makes it known via a few harsh tweets on Twitter.

50 Shades Of Don’t Give Me Mixed Signals

love animated GIF

This is not a 50 Shades Of Grey movie review, it’s my life at present moment. My current battle with mixed signals.

I finally found myself  breaking away from my old status of thinking that i am not for relationships, that commitment is not for me and that i thrive being a free being. I have allowed myself to get soaked in by beautiful smiles, funny text conversations, cute name-calling like baby and love, long hours on the phone and sky rocket phone bills – all only to be left with just that! I feel like roles got reversed and i am being treated with the short stick. This might be a serious case of ambivalence but i just don’t know if i am a fan of it at this new stage of my life especially when it is coming from three directions.

Now don’t get me wrong, i must be super confused or not myself to even be writing all of this, It’s not like me to get into such things and to catch feelings.  I am usually the one to play it cool, not text that often and leave you wondering what the deal is. Well, the past month has not been the case. Its rare that i come across a beautiful being with a mind to match. Someone i could grow with, encourage and show wholehearted actions to. Someone that could be worth all the time invested. I thought i had that x3. Then it got me thinking, girls these days have stepped up their game- they’re smart. Girls are starting to date like men and i don’t know how to feel about that.

I use to be an advocate of giving Mixed Signals and i use to preach my 8 Mixed Signal tips below to my friends:

1. It prevents you from appearing needy, clingy, or “too available.”

2. When a girl can’t figure you out, you have the upper hand and power in the relationship.

3. She’ll begin to work harder to attract you, which creates more “investment” on her part.

4. No girl wants an “easy catch”

5. Girls are addicted to drama.  Sending mixed signals provides her the drama she craves.

6. When she’s not sure where she stands with you, she anticipates seeing you more.

7. It makes her assume that you have other options. And we all know girls want what other girls want.

8. When a girl isn’t sure how you feel about her she thinks about you more.

Man, the roles switched up. These mixed signals are turning me off and I think what this is, is that i caught feelings. Shit!

Top 5 Super Bowl ads 2015!

It is no lie that the Super Bowl ads attract just as many viewers as the actual games at Super Bowl itself. I personally love watching these commercials, so here is my top 5!

1. I loved this ad! It is inspirational and emotive at the same time! Brilliantly done.

Dodge- Dodge Wisdom

2. This commercial from Super Bowl new-comer Mophie is definitely a front runner.

Mophie- Game Day

3.  The Reebok ad is just a creative expression of what it means to want more. To want to become better. Be more Human is great campaign. Good job guys!

My Social Media Week In GIFs

This past Social Media week i had was one for the books, i tell you. I have experienced joy, hate and sabotage all in one week.

So let me break it down for you.

1. When it’s a day before your first big event of the year and you have three of your (Fly-in) guests cancel on you due to illness and you are left to fill the spots or else the whole event will be in shambles.

2. Then life shows you that everything will be okay and you manage to fill up those spots in a matter of 2 hours.

3. Me when everyone pitched up. #FullHouse 24/24

4. Then it started. I had to deal with tons of these.

5. First event of the year. A new objective to create new relationships. Many more events to come. I am sorry you had FOMO but DM’ing and messaging other people to sabotage me and trash talking about me on forums is not great for your media relations. How do you think that makes me feel? How does that make you look? Calm Down!

sad animated GIF

6. Oh, but wait. On a lighter note, i received amazing feedback from the event and a great day on social with 744 tweets sent out with the hashtag!

WHEN A CLIENT GIVES ME PERMISSION TO BAN AN ANNOYING USER ON FACEBOOK.

7. When Facebook introduced “Translate”  to the Facebook Mobile App.

#FordFusionLaunch in Cape Town

I know, i know, i have not been updating as regularly but trust me, i have been so busy. Busy with cool stuff like the Ford Fusion launch i just recently did. The launch took me a few months to get together and it was hard work from start to finish. I also spent two months doing the pre-launch campaign called #FusionStandOut, a full 360′ Digital campaign that included, YouTube mastheads, engagement ads and heavy social media promotion on the new smart features that the Ford Fusion has. The campaign has been working well with increasing brand awareness as well as positioning the Ford Fusion as a flagship vehicle with endless Tech.

So back to the launch. I had my events hat on did my thing! It went off really well, no big issues and overall positive reception from all media in attendance. The hashtag for the launch was #FordFusionLaunch, a little long i know but it worked in terms of letting South Africa know that Ford Fusion is here and it’s the launch. A  promoted trend of the hashtag backed up by good content and live tweets from media from the launch made for a great Social Media day for me and for Ford.

Here is a look at the launch.
