1o weeks ago my class was given the daunting task of having to write a weekly blog on a topic of our lecturer’s choice. At first I was a little apprehensive. I always wanted to give blogging a go, but did I really want to be blogging about Filter Bubbles or Mobile Apps?! I proved myself wrong!!!
I have learned so much from NTFM…..I’ve learned that I am addicted to Twitter, and Facebook has taken over my life..but, I’ve also learned that by 2015 mobile apps will have generated 37.5 million in revenue and there are no signs of it slowing down, 1 out of 8 minutes spent online is spent on Facebook, that Google takes into account 57 individual data points before serving you the results you searched for and that ASOS.com is top of the rankings for its all encompassing media presence.
I am also now a fan of Ted Talks! My lecturer is a BIG fan of them and every week we watched 2 or 3 based on the topic we were covering! At time the thought of watching a 20 minute talk on mobile marketing was enough to put us to sleep, and our lecturer admitted she “may have banged the Ted Talks drum a little too hard” but I’m glad she did!! I’ve seen how the simplest and smallest idea’s can be the most effective, they are the idea’s that spawn into something amazing! Here is one of my favourites..
Thanks to my NTFM module I now see that I can combine my passion for fashion and my love for social media and digital marketing, social media is in fact changing the face of the fashion industry. So, fingers crossed, this won’t be the last you’ll hear from me! It’s not goodbye…it’s see you later…..
