How do brands works with social media influencers? How do you choose the right influencers for your brand?
By now, you would be familiar with the ongoing saga involving Xiaxue, Gushcloud, and SMRT Feedback Ltd (an online vigilante Facebook account).

Social media is a double-edged sword.
Put to good use, it can be a salve for humanity’s woes.

Content marketing is the new marketing silver bullet. Everybody is talking about it.
How do we create great content that sizzles (not fizzles)? More importantly, how do we keep the pipeline full while sustaining customer relationships through content?
By now, many would have noticed that our genteel northern neighbour has been creating a mini “social revolution” on YouTube. Its videos have generated such virality that they are being talked about all over the world.
