Wildstyle Network auf der INREACH 2017

Wenn Unternehmen Influencer Marketing betreiben, geht es häufig um Likes, Comments, Shares oder Link-Clicks. Kennzahlen wie diese sollen aufzeigen wie gut ein Post und damit die entsprechende Kampagne performt. Die Marketing-Formel dahinter: Je größer der Influencer, desto mehr Engagement und desto erfolgreicher die Kampagne. Scheinbar! Denn ein einfaches Herzchen unter einen Post sagt erst einmal wenig darüber aus, ob sich der Nutzer auch wirklich mit dem Inhalt, dem beworbenen Produkt oder der Brand auseinandergesetzt hat oder wie eine Marke in der Zielgruppe auf lange Sicht wahrgenommen wird.

Dating Apps Suck! ING DiBa Now Reinvented DatING.

Dating and dating apps are the app spam these days.
ING DiBa reinvented they way you use dating apps. Embedded in people’s banking behavior, this app here finds you the perfect partner that matches your banking behaviour. What a great value proposition!

Especially when you downloaded apps that pretend to find you the partner for life. With most of them you end up in paying with credits for fake profiles.
We think this needs a revolution. And we’re glad that the German ING DiBa jumped on this train and reinvented dating with an own app.

Enjoy watching it!

We’re Beta Girls And Women In The Creative Business

We’re far away from being alpha women in business here at Wildstyle Network. It’s because there’s no alpha behavior nor a subordination in our entire international team. Although we all know it’s an alpha world in business. With men dominating and shaping the role of woman in classic advertising, transport, technology, politics and so many other branches.

The reason why we did a series called #WomanInCreativeBusiness is that we strongly believe that the creative industry can shape and change women’s image like no other industry. Our female members of the team also agree that we don’t simply do business but have fun in what we creating each day, what we’re achieving as a team every day.

So please find these real-agency-life images taken by Wildstyle Network’s designer Anne during idea-findings, in our Atelier and the general work at the desk. All done in a day, all natural.
