Debbie HamiltonName and shame the business. We don't need agencies like this. They don't just taint the Durban project, they taint all of us who do digital marketing in South Africa
#ilovedurbansharksWell Done Avilash Aniruth, Co-Founder of I Love Durban and CEO of Carver Media. No surprises there.
Equally well done to his wife, ICT entrepreneur of the year award recipient, Praneetha Aniruth who is also the Co-Founder of the I Love Brand.
Just when you thought it was safe in the water - yet more sharks in durban.
iConsultantEveryone forgets that anyone can purchase Twitter followers for any Twitter account.
I wouldn't be surprised if competing agencies bought the followers in order to make the primary agency look bad. This might sound like a conspiracy theory but I know at least two campaigns where this has happened.
telling the truthThere were no competing agencies. They were apparently the only agency registered as a supplier of social media to eThekwini. Wonder what happened to our application??
Charis ApelgrenA social media campaign at a cost of R500,000 for 10 days?
The campaign involved two Facebook status updates a week, uploading three pictures on Facebook a week, sending a bulk e-mail (I wonder why I missed this one), tweeting with the hashtag #weloveDurban, uploading YouTube videos, uploading 20 images to Instagram and advertising on the website (what was the CPM rate?).
I have run campaigns for clients and R500,000 is too much.
