  • AirAsia is well-known for having an active presence in social media and blogging, to forge a close relationship with customers. Unlike any other corporate blogs, the folks there put themselves into the shoes of a typical blogger, publishing journals of their culture and working lives. I would say it looks more like a personal blog, with the use of rich multimedia such as photos and videos. What’s interesting is that they give their readers the opportunity to submit guest posts, and encourage them to write about their experiences on trips to countries they have recently been to. This type of informal style of corporate blogging can easily gain “sticky” readers, who will likely become potential customers.

  • Background The Blendtec© “Will it Blend?” series of viral videos started when then-new Marketing Director George Wright found out that CEO Tom Dickson and the R&D team had a practice of blending up wooden boards to test product toughness. Wright had an idea to shoot video of the operation and post it online. He invested under $100 in supplies and convinced Dickson to blend up other things on camera. 186 videos later, Blendtec’s retail sales are up a reported 700 percent, its YouTube site has 200,000+ subscribers, and it has been featured on major mainstream media outlets like The Today Show, The Tonight Show, The History Channel, The Wall Street Journal and others. Among awards, Blendtec has won a bronze Clio in 2008 (Interactive category) for their interactive efforts.
