As part of the Mynewsdesk Favbrand campaign, "Red Man" (or what we
call the Mynewsdesk follower") had been going around the streets of
Singapore to get people talking about their favourite brands. What
better way to get the conversation going, than to visit the hippest
place with the happiest people on a Friday night! On 16 November, Red
Man, together with Mynewsdesk Red team, arrived at Clarke Quay on week 1
of the campaign. Despite a heavy downpour, the rain magically stopped
right before the Red Team headed out.
The weather did not seem to have dampened the mood of those who came to wind down and celebrate the start of the weekend. Many of them were thrilled and intrigued at the sight of a man parading in the red morph suit. He walked around with the "Hello, my name is" board, attracting much stares and giggles from the diners at many alfresco joints.
Upon getting their attention,
Red Man and the team approached them to ask about their favourite
brands. Those who gave their inputs and took a photograph with the Red
Man stood a chance to win Clarke Quay dining vouchers or iPad mini! They
simply have to share their picture on Facebook profile and garner as
many likes as possible. To our delight, we discovered a few interesting
favourite brands like: Pampers, Durex, SK II, Boy London, just to name a few.
The Favbrand campaign is aimed to create conversations around brands, and some buzz around Mynewsdesk. In the same way, Mynewsdesk is a PR and brand engagement platform; brands can use Mynewsdesk to generate conversations around them. This campaign was also an opportunity for Mynewsdesk to step out of the digital realm to engage in real conversations with people.
We must say, we were really glad with the responses we received from the crowd that night! A few staff and owners of the restaurants and bars also participated enthusiastically. With a variety of joints and cuisines that Clarke Quay had to offer, it was a night spent with warm and sporting people of many different nationalities. The lively atmosphere at Clarke Quay made the night!
We would like to thank all those who took part that night for contributing towards the fun.
The Favbrand Campaign started on 10 November, and more than 355 entries have been submitted online, and by participants we met, from Raffles Place, Tanjong Pagar, Clarke Quay, Orchard and Marina Bay Sands.
