The Girl Power Pink That Is Taking Over Social Media!

March 23, 2017

Want to know why today, pink colour palletes are taking over social media! Some may call it millennial pink & it’s not going away anytime soon.

You can call it Tumblr Pink. Girl Power Pink. Even feminist Pink! One of Pantone’s colour  references for the shade is – Pink Flambe! Whatever you may consider it to be, it’s hear to stay and I can tell you why!

Let’s take it back a little. When you were a little girl, pink is the first colour that most girls identify with. Some may say it represents the signature Barbie, girly girls and the ‘typical’ idealistic ideas and connotation of a female. Fast forward to 2016 the feminine shade is bigger than the infamous Barbie doll. The tone has now evolved to hold a whole new meaning to PINK.

Girl Power Pink

What does ‘Millenial Pink’ mean in 2017?

The girl you think that cares about looking pretty – she can run a business, wear 5’inch heels, give birth to some babies and make a house a home, basically women are the foundations to life. However we are not perfect but we matter and basically we are the bomb.com! The millennial pink shade is taking the traditional consensus gender role and flipping it on it’s head – owning its power with a new depth of influence.

In 2016 it was called the Tumblr pink according to @NY Mag and has since developed into a palette of tones that we have never seen before, even though we have, it’s just the meaning is something completely different now!

Some of your favourite fashion brand as embracing this shade espeacially with SS17 collections. Brands such as Zara, Topshop and sme your favourite designers by the likes of: Rihanna Fenty x Puma, Valentino, Balenciaga and Celine are all hot on Pink.

It makes you think from a marketing perspective how powerful colour Influences trends, culture, brand relevance and even buying behaviour.

Want To Get Into Digital Fashion Marketing – Meet Tasha Antwi

March 12, 2017

From studying digital marketing in University and having an idea that digital fashion was the future. To Now Working with Bottega Veneta, Ralph Lauren and even Blackberry.

Meet Tasha Antwi.

Get to know how SEO content, blogger outreach and influencer marketing is a #GirlBoss career!

Digital Fashion Marketing

What is your job role?

Organic Performance Team Lead & Digital PR

What does that entail?

I’m the lead on 4 accounts, providing SEO consultation on on-site and off-site SEO and content marketing. I work on overall SEO and content marketing strategy, blogger outreach and publications.

I’m also looking after the new Digital PR offering due to launch this year. This will involve upscaling influencer marketing, and identifying grass-root influencers.

What big brands can you share that you have had the pleasure of working with?

Early on in my career I had the pleasure of working with big brands such as Bottega Veneta, Ralph Lauren, Mr Porter, Barbour, New Look, Kurt Geiger, BlackBerry and much more!

How did you get into the industry?

I actually came across SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) while doing my dissertation at university, which was all about online advertising in fashion. At the time, I knew I wanted to work in marketing, working with big fashion brands and digitally.

Back then SEO, and ranking highly in Google, became a big thing as ranking highly in Google but you in the position to drive the most traffic to your website.

As a marketer what do you think is the gem to propel you to success?

Working for a data led digital marketing agency, it’s been exciting to see how data can be used in such a clever way to formulate marketing strategies. Being proactive in learning and becoming an expert in this ‘new idea’, testing it and showing results is what makes you stand out. Especially when it comes to Digital Marketing. 

In the industry do you look up to any other women in your field? If no, do you think there is a lack of e.g. female CMO’s, female creative marketers and female mentors?

One person I look up to in the industry is Jenny Thompson who is the Head of Data and Advanced Analytics at Forward 3D. She is the most down to earth person I’ve ever met, and is soo smart and compelling.

I do feel there is a lack of women in senior management positions, especially women of colour. Unfortunately when it comes to tech and digital marketing, we just don’t get enough women of colour applying for roles!

What is the most rewarding campaign or achievable win that you are most proud of?

Ralph Lauren, I was proud to be a part of the Abbey Road campaign, promoting the launch of their 60’s inspired AW14 collection. I was in charge of inviting influencers to the event, and designing and creating additional content around the collection – to outreach and gain placements online.

Who/what is your greatest teacher?

My greatest teacher would be my faith. Being a Christian is what makes me who I am, and is the foundation of all my values. Values that shine through at work, which I hope one day also inspires people. Matthew 19:26 “But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

What is your most valuable lesson?

One of the most valuable lessons I learned from my dad. He was a man full of regret about the things he didn’t get to achieve in his life, due to various situations. He taught me to always take chances, what’s the worst that could happen?!

You can fail but then you would be at peace knowing you tried that thing you always wanted to do.

Now thats a Marketing Girl Boss!!

Why Inclusive marketing should be on your agenda in 2017!

March 5, 2017

Are we finally seeing inclusive marketing to the industry – I’ll let you be the judge!

With the breakthrough of young creatives taking the internet into their own hands and creating their own channels to produce original content. We now have our friends and friends of friends acquiring the same amount followers, impact and even engagement comapred to some of your favourite brands. Upon analysis a first thought is; yes finally we don’t need to be a model, celebrity or a known person to seen or heard, you can just be yourself!

But with new ground-breaking campaigns by the likes of L’Oréal Paris and Nike, they have infused a marketing strategy that will open the minds of traditional marketers. That is called Inclusive Marketing!

What is Inclusive Marketing?

Inclusive marketing is simply marketing that doesn’t target one demographic and doesn’t rely on the traditional stereotypes we set up of ourselves and other people.

Why Inclusive marketing should be on your agenda in 2017!

Traditional marketing strategy is centred on demographics as it relates to the products or service in question. For example, A Gucci customer could be seen as demographically: White, middle class, male or female, who works In the city. However what about the young black girl who loves luxury fashion or the millennial Asian entrepreneur who mixes high end and high street fashion.

Demographics is a 2D way to breakdown people and things to make singular. In 2017 with the voice of your customers in your Instagram comments, Snap chats, YouTube reviews and on Twitter who are fearless twitter finger consumers ready to be heard at their digression in less than 40 characters. It will be highly isolating to bench-mark people against old fashioned stereotypes and statistics based on race, gender, religion and class. Yes they play a factor but are not the substance of your customer and justify a brands report to back their marginalised marketing campaign attempts.  

Why Inclusive marketing should be on your agenda in 2017!

Sportswear giant Nike launched a culturally rich, empowering campaign that pays homage to Middle Eastern athletes and explores the challenges young Arab women aspiring to a professional sporting career may face. Yes, there are achingly cool close-ups of the signature Nike swoosh but this bold campaign goes far beyond selling hi-tech breathable sportswear, it delivers the region’s spirit and millennial outlook on what it is to be a Nike woman in the Middle East circa now.

Now that’s inclusive and powerful, go Nike!

Life Of A Marketing GirlTips and Take away:

  • Accommodate diversity as an imperative strategy guideline, for a cross global execution
  • Show sensitivity, less face value gratification and more emotive touch points as communications tools
  • Don’t lose focus on your target audience, however still consider other groups within your business development and follow through to activation launch.
  • Change the game – Change the way people think. Inclusive marketing should be strategy in ALL marketing teams. It should be heightened to fit the needs and wants of your business product and service and not be dismissed.
