Social media + lady parts = awkward situation
I work in social media. I’m interested in it and how it works for a lot of brands. To engage with customers on a personal level, try and fix customer issues as well as informing them with really great information. Being a consumer myself, if I follow a brand e.g. Topshop, I want all the updates and I want answers when I ask about clothes in my size. It can be a good tool.
Recently I’ve been watching the new campaign for FemFresh (a product that’s meant to scent your down-stairs in a PH neutral way) and I’m watching it unfold online. A new Facebook page and a new marketing scheme is on the go, and I’m not sure what I think of it yet. But what I do know is, people aren’t really taking to it.
Observations so far:
- People clearly don’t like the product.
- People are getting defensive, they think vajayjay’s don’t need sprucing
- The marketing campaign is a little degrading
- They are pissing people off by calling it our ‘noo-noo’ and ‘froo-froo’
- They using VERY cutesy language. This is NOT getting on good terms with feminists
- It’s making girls paranoid about fixing a problem that essentially isn’t there
- People are probably buying the product secretly so why would they ‘like’ the page?
- It’s mostly MEN commenting on the page – what?
