8) What are some of your top tips to brands for running campaigns? How do you maintain authenticity?

In running a campaign, I believe it is important for a brand or any organisation to have a “Before, During, After” plan. This is to know what needs to be prepared, what’s the goal of the campaign, and what’s the outcome of it all.

Firstly in ‘Before’ plan, the purpose of the campaign being held must be concise and it has to have a goal which then would drive the organisation to achieve it.

In ‘During’, specifically on the day of the campaign, I would emphasize more on ‘team-leading’ as it requires more physicality than theory & planning. Therefore making the ‘Before’ plan the most important part as it clears out every aspects of roles of what needs to be done on the day of the campaign.

‘After’ is where the results of all the hard work would be evaluated whether it has bear fruit or otherwise, in which all the analysis and statistics from the outcome of the campaign would be significant for an upcoming campaign in the future.

Lastly, I strongly believe authenticity are kept by practicing traditions and staying true in itself. In this situation, authenticity of a brand are seen unique as it differs from other competitors by having a particular trademark in its materials, designs, and overall aesthetics. Therefore, only by altering what’s within those aspects can we maintain authenticity.

9) What would your advice be on the importance of quality and original content?

In creating a creative multimedia content, it is important to not perceive it as an assignment that would simply burdens your mindset to finish it. Instead, take it as an opportunity to explore and try new things, perhaps by promoting the brand by doing new trends in the internet.

Realistically, there would be no potential customers if they weren’t in urgent need of the product. Therefore, formal promotional video would simply be pointless to those who views it without initial intention of purchasing the product.

The point being made here is that the importance of creating a quality and original content is also the answer to attract potential and targeted customers. As aforementioned, only by doing fresh ideas of creative content can the brand or organization attracts the eyes of viewers. To illustrate the statement, creating a current trend of 15-seconds Tiktok “clothes haul” video would have a higher engagement than a 2-minutes corporate promotional video. In addition to that, a shorter video would be easier to commercialized in various social networks.

10) What do you like best about partnering with brands?

The opportunity to work with amazing brands! I’m forever grateful with this opportunity because this collaborating thingy has always been passion and now I’m still trying to turn my passion into a profession.
