Monday 12th November 2012: Hi, Mhairi here! Today is a great day to start my Mallzee intern diary because it’s all happening on Twitter; we’re starting our very own Twitter chat at 8pm (fingers crossed). We came up with this idea in a group brainstorm session when looking at the marketing plan for the next month.
We want the first chat to be quite simple and are proposing the topic of Autumn/Winter trends to see how it goes. To get it started we have contacted some of our blogger network, inviting them to join in. We have had quite a bit of positive feedback, so here’s hoping that our blogger friends are excited as us. It’s quite exciting and there is a definite buzz about the office; we are all coming up with last minute ideas on how to make sure the chat is a success. I will continue this blog after the chat…
The chat has just finished and it went really well; there was lots of discussion about A/W trends, so if anyone who joined in is reading this, thanks! As a special thank you to everyone who joined in we added in a link and an exclusive discount code for Urban Outfitters at the end of the chat, which everyone seemed really happy about. We’ve had loads of comments saying how much people had enjoyed the chat and how they can’t wait for next week.
It was great getting such positive feedback from everyone and knowing that people were enjoying chatting to others who also love fashion. We will be making the chat a weekly thing now, so join in tonight at 8pm with #shoppingrevolution.
My time at work today has mostly centred round the chat and making sure we get it right. It’s a great way to keep up blogger relationships and speak to others who are interested in fashion, and I would love to get #shoppingrevolution trending worldwide. I know it’s ambitious, but if there is anything that I have learned in my time at Mallzee, it’s that if you don’t aim high there is no point in aiming at all!
Mhairi and her fellow Mallzee intern Laura will be guest blogging for Scotcampus.com all week. Find out more about Mallzee at Mallzee.com and join in their Twitter chat tonight, using #shoppingrevolution.
