'Free' is key to every marketing campaign in Singapore | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it
Free is the magic word in Singapore for any marketing campaign. If you use it you can promote anything. I love Raffles Place in Singapore’s CBD as it’s always a hive of marketing activity. There are always a plethora of brands trying to capture the attention of busy business executives who are dashing around. You soon learn that “free” is the only message that truly works to achieve this objective.

Justine Sacco AIDS tweet gets her fired from IAC

Justine Sacco AIDS tweet gets her fired from IAC | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

Her tin-eared tweet — “Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding. I’m white!” — earned seemingly universal condemnation before her plane had even landed, even spawning a trending hashtag #HasJustineLandedYet. IAC, the Barry Diller-owned company that runs Web properties such as Match.com and the Daily Beast, swiftly fired Sacco, who has since issued her own apology.
