Week 5 post 2

Knowing more about the customer will help with planning for efficient advertising. The target market/psychographic for direct sales of pesticide free Hass Avocados would be to either males or females, over the age of 18. It would have to be someone who is health conscious and/or athletic, who is looking to spend some money on quality food products that are hand grown in California. Their income would need to be over $50,000 a year. It doesn't matter if they are single or married, have children, or an education. Race or religion is not a factor either. It is a health and taste preference and if they have the affordability, they would buy them. The saying, we are what we eat matters to this target market. They want to eat as healthy as possible so they have a healthy mind and body. They are strong believers of super foods and the Environmental Working Group's Clean 15 with Avocados being #1 on that list. They believe that healthy fats are important and needed in our daily diet. And above all that, they love California Avocados because they taste way better than any others out there. They want hand grown avocados from a small family farm where they know hard work has been put into growing them.  They may not know of all the work involved in growing them, but they do value the consistent taste ours will bring. This target market might not live in California.

Week1 My template

I chose this theme because I like cosmetics. I often watch videos on how younger women apply certain cosmetics so I can learn how to use them properly and look my best. Because they can be very expensive, I have to be careful not to go overboard on how much I spend. I thought it would be fun to start reviewing what I use so that maybe I can get some followers, sponsors and maybe some free products!

This theme explains a lot about me just by looking at it. The soft colors of the theme are nice, the brush, glittery nail polish and eye shadow stand out. I like the black background and uniformity because it looks like a web site not just a blog.

I've never written a blog, never even read a blog so I'm not really sure what I'm in for. All I know is that it sounds like fun and I hope it turns out great. I look forward to expanding my knowledge on this so I can use this technology over and over.

Week 2 Overview of Social Media

1. In my opinion I think Snapchat and Twitter are geared toward personal use. Snapchat has a variety of features where the user uploads their face and applies things like silly ears, mouths and voices with short videos and disappears quickly. Also, you can create stories with short 6 second snippet videos combined together but again are short lived as they go away in a day. Twitter blasts out a message sent by an individual. These would not be very effective for business advertising.

2. Facebook, Instagram and Youtube are effective means of advertising for businesses.
Facebook can get likes and followers so each ad that gets created can show up in a customer news feed repeatedly. Facebook can also have an attached website and you can place an order or contact the business in its built in messenger app to ask questions and get answers fairly quick.
Instagram is simple and more straight forward. You can share a picture with comments attached and get followers likes and comments. You ca…

Blog Post Week 3 Part 1

I have experienced many difficulties communicating with businesses. Using social media can sometimes make it easier to get noticed and get the problem solved. It just depends if companies  have good social media presence or don't.  For example, United Airlines is inconsistent with how they choose to respond. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't, where other companies will respond every time. Complaining via social media usually means you have to have social media knowledge to begin with to know how to tag your posts correctly so they can become visible to the public with hashtags.

I had a bad experience when Cold Stone Creamery closed early one night as I was walking in and they told me I had to leave because they were closed and their posted hours of operation showed them as still being open. I got mad and wrote the company to complain using Twitter. They responded and a few days after that, I received a letter in the mail offering me a free ice cream of my choice and an a…
