TRAVELLING TO BANGKOK, THAILAND

In today’s vlog, Tass is travelling to Bangkok, Thailand with his girlfriend for a much-needed holiday, we decide to take you on the journey and show you some of the behind the scenes. After travelling all over the world with our clients and on Business Development, Tass embarks on for some relaxation and downtime, this time without camera man Nick, how will he survive :')

At the same time, Socially Powerful are in the middle of a lot of major projects and recruiting for new employees. As a start-up business, we need to be smart with where we invest our money and who we invest our money in. With no investment or venture capitalist backing, every penny counts and we need to deploy it in the most effective way possible. 

Arriving in Bangkok you really feel the pace of the city, the vibe of the people and the culture of the communities in the city, which changes from day to night.

WORKING WITH PEOPLE YOU LOVE

Working with people you love is one of the most important factors when starting a business. These are people you’ll spend most of your time with, so why would you want to surround yourself with and build a business with people you don’t get on with and don’t like?! Don’t think about the money and the rewards, think about your life and doing what makes you happy. If you start a business just for the money, you’re in the wrong game and you’ll fail.

We aso talk about selling and marketing on social media being the most effective channel to get products in front of audiences at the right time, in the right market and in the right way. It’s the final part of the vlogs with Julius Dein and he’s about to pull the most epic prank on his grandma. We take you behind the scenes of the final preparation, the prank itself and then meeting his grandma who we have a really interesting chat with.

THINGS NEVER GO TO PLAN

It’s our first day and vlog back in London, after the trip around the world and we are thrust straight into the action, with a zombie apocalypse prank with the renowned Internet Prankster, Julius Dein. We take you behind the scenes and show you the scale of film production on some of the campaigns we do.

The creative behind the video is that Julius would be pranking his grandmother with a zombie apocalypse, that involved zombies, gunfire, artillery and a load of military.

Due to the circumstances of a terrorist attack happening the previous day, we had to rethink our plans and there were some very last-minute unavoidable changes. The Police said no to any gunfire and weaponry on set. Things never go 100% to plan, but this was a situation we had to manage properly from the production side and the client side. In the vlog Tass goes through how we managed the client and their expectations of what’s now possible.

This is the first part of the day, so tune in on Tuesday to see what happens next and the prank that was pulled on Julius grandma.

THE FINAL HURDLE

Our trip and travelling around the world ENDS TODAY! The final hurdle, it all comes down to this and the big push for the product launch in Barcelona with all the influencers in attendance. 

Xenia Tchoumitcheva, Mariano Di Vaio, Toni Mahfud, Unbox Therapy are all involved in this global launch for our client, with a lot of time pressure and last minute changes, we manage to pull it off. 

After a huge trip around the world, there has been a lot to learn, understand and so much experience that we gained. We're now on the way back to London, to get stuck in back in the office, ready for the big move and all of the other campaigns we are working on. Just two guys, travelling around the world, chasing the dream - WHAT A TRIP!

We're excited to show more of what we get up to on a daily and weekly basis, let the journey continue as we take things to the next level and introduce YouTube to more of the Socially Powerful Team.

 

ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!

As Tass and Nick’s epic three week worldwide journey draws to a close, their biggest challenge is still ahead. This is the day of the product launch event, with all the influencers in Barcelona and anything can happen.

The influencers need to be briefed on their activities for the day and all the while the client is still waiting for the Unbox Therapy’s video to review before it’s immediate release.

With difficult time constraints and a continually changing schedule, the pair must persevere in order to complete the job.

CAN YOU LEARN HOW TO BECOME AN INFLUENCER?!

We’re back with a vlog in Barcelona with Mariano Di Viao and Xenia Tchoumitcheva, staying at the W Hotel. We had a pretty frustrating stay at the W Hotel, anything that could go wrong, went wrong. Blocked cards, no internet and unhelpful staff!

Barcelona is a great city, there is so much to see, spectacular architecture, history and culture. We had an action packed first day with photoshoots all over the city with Xenia during the day…. then as night rolled we headed out with Mariano around Barcelona for a photoshoot under the city lights.

All the preparation is complete; the hard work is done and tomorrow we are ready for the product launch. Lots of stress and little sleep for the past few weeks, is now FINALLY worth it.

An interesting topic arises with Xenia; can you learn how to be an influencer? Can you copy what everyone else is doing? How far will that take you in terms of growing your audience and own brand? Share your opinions below.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA EXPERTS

Whilst in Toronto we have a call with the BBC to discuss Influencer Marketing and Social Media Marketing. An interesting topic emerges about “Social Media Experts” and it’s something of a hot topic in the industry now. Can you be a “Social Media Expert?” Do they exist? The answer is no, you can’t. Social Media is always evolving and changing, you’re always learning, you can never truly master something that isn’t a finished article. There are people who call themselves “Social Media Experts” and if you come across one, ask them what they have done to warrant the title.

We pick up the customised unboxing experience for the launch of a new mobile phone with Unbox Therapy who’s creating a video for his YouTube Channel….and we crash the drone. Whilst on the way to the airport, we talk to Jennifer Chareunvong about her life and what she’s currently doing in her life. She’s a professional fighter, with the determination to get to the top of the game and it’s interesting to hear her POV on Ronda Rousey and the UFC.

Next stop, Barcelona and one of the biggest Mobile Phone launches of 2017.

THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED

In today's vlog, we talk about the revolution of agency business from broadcast era and into the social era whilst flying from Shenzhen to Shanghai in China. Brands are spending too much money on traditional advertising (TV, Billboards etc) and not enough on social media. Where are people spending their time and giving their attention to in the modern day, why aren’t more brands shifting their marketing spend? By now, we are sure you all know our views and thoughts on the matter ;) !

While in Shanghai, Nick meets up with some local skateboarders for a session and captures some of the cities landscape with a drone. The reason we are in Shanghai is to catch the bullet train to Beijing, unfortunately – our timings let us down and we miss the train, which means we must spend another night in Shanghai. Fingers crossed we can make the next one in the morning otherwise we’ll miss our meetings!
