Another Example of How Social Media May Do for a Business

We have discussed several examples of how social media may do for a business in this blog before --- e.g. 4food and Mobile Food Truck (a Facebook video). This CNN video provides another successful example of using social media in mobile cupcake business. Even though this video does not reveal much new information, it shows the importance of tying every social media tool together. This is the way to build a brand with consistent messages and maximize the strengths of a variety of social media tools. Do you agree?

  1. This is a simple idea that was well implemented to get their name out there. Not only is their advertising free, it is real time advertising, meaning that rather than putting an add in the paper for the following week they are letting the customer know exactly where they will be at a moments notice. This is beneficial to the consumer to know immediately because they may forget about advertisements they read in the paper. Most people get twitter updates on there phone making it a friendly reminder to spend their money; especially if they are in the area when they get the twitter update.

  2. I've heard about this through food network. They have the whole "Truck Race" for foods and now a days i seem more travel trucks than actually sit downs. There's a truck called "waffle and dinges" and it was featured on food network for serving delicious Belgian waffles. The way they become so famous is because you have to catch them on the right time. They advertise through facebook and twitter because social media and technology plays a huge role in our lives today.

Yammer: A Social Networking Site Exclusively for the Workplace

Effective internal communications among employees are related to some desirable organizational outcomes, such as robust morale, a clear vision, low turnover, and high employee engagement. The question is what platform can serve the purpose. This ABC News video introduces “ Yammer ,” an exclusive internal communication tool for companies. A user must use a valid company e-mail address to sign up for an account. Once an account is validated, the user will be led to the company page that is pretty much like a Facebook page. The difference is that only the users whose e-mail addresses share the same domain can see the wall and communicate with each other. I have no question about whether Yammer could be a useful internal communication tool for companies, but I just wonder: how many social networking sites do people need for communication? Why people have to “create” so many platforms or channels for “effective communications”? To many people, Facebook is only for “friends,” whe

Can leisure and work-from-home demand stimulate extended-stay hotel growth beyond COVID-19?

The lodging industry is   struggling   to fill the empty rooms in 2020. For months, U.S. hotels are running at an occupancy of 50% or lower.     Not every segment   suffers the same impact from the pandemic, however. Demand for   home-sharing  facilities had already bounced back over the summer. Airbnb reported a higher booking than last year. Marriott’s home-sharing arm is also doing well, seeing a sevenfold increase in booking over last summer.     Similar to what a residential rental or home-sharing facility   offers , guestrooms in extended-stay hotels also feature a full-size kitchen or a kitchenette. Extended-stay hotels are designed for travelers who want to stay at a “home” when away from home.

Will restaurants of the future still need a dining room?

It does not seem the coronavirus is leaving us soon, although we have seen good   progress in developing the vaccine . In recent weeks, many places reported   a surge of new infected COVID-19 cases . Some even resumed   lockdowns   and the mask-mandate order, forcing restaurants to   shut down indoor dining   services again.     As a short-term remedy, restaurants immediately shifted their offering to   curbside pickup and delivery  services. Meanwhile, restaurants are testing new concepts to embrace the   contactless self-service  trend for the future. Here are some examples,     Chipotle opened its first digital-only restaurant     The new prototype, known as the   Chipotle Digital Kitchen , debut in Highland Falls, NY, earlier this month. Different from the traditional Chipotle restaurant, the Chipotle Digital Kitchen features:     A lobby designated for pickup services through off-premise orders.   A see-through kitchen, allowing customers to see, smell, and hear what is going on b
