It’s TRU: Bench, Nike and Adidas are top brands for Filipino teens
Many people buy clothes on bazarre, tiangge, and even on ukay ukay for cheap price of clothes. Many people said that buying cheap price clothes can make a big difference from buying expensive and branded clothes. But do we know if this clothes can make us feel comfortable and cannot affect our health. There are facts that clothes from ukay ukay especially, are second hand clothes or are already used clothes. But my mom told me that clothes from ukay ukay are also branded clothes but are already used but still can be reused by just putting tawas to prevent bad odor and chlorine/zonrox (its a brand name) to take away stains.
But still there is no doubt, even many bazarre, tiangge and ukay ukay popping out everywhere, Students still prefer to choose and buy branded products especially clothes.
Let me give you some fashion trend for Spring season:
Even as the fall 2012 shows currently take place, my focus remains on spring 2012 fashion trends. I prefer to start my spring shopping right after the holiday season in January. By that time, I’m longing for warmer weather, longer days, and more sunshine. With spring fast approaching, it’s time to focus on key pieces to update my wardrobe.
So what’s on my radar? I’m currently stocking up on: pastel tops and lightweight sweaters in shades of mint and peach, floral trousers, and neon accessories. So what’s on the radar of fashion industry professionals? According to fashion forecasting firm WGSN, here are the 10 items you should be stocking up on for spring 2012:
1. the parka - a key piece for the sportswear trend, as seen at Michael Kors and Acne. 2. the waterfall jacket - a new twist on outerwear spotted on the runways at Preen and Givenchy. 3. the 1950s shirtwaister dress - Jen Kao and Margaret Howell sent ladylike and figure-flattering versions down the runway. Accentuated waists are key to this look. 4. the 1960s dress - think minimalism and A-line, as done by Dolce & Gabbana and Holly Fulton. 5. the peplum dress - the Duchess of Cambridge helped to bring peplums into the spotlight, and they’re popping up on tops, skirts, and dresses. Cushnie et Ochs, Vera Wang, and Jason Wu are prime examples of how to incorporate the waist-defining trend. 6. the dirndl skirt - a very retro shape with a nod to the 1950s, as seen at Jonathan Saunders. 7. the printed, tailored trouser - Zara, J. Crew, and Anthropologie have plenty of options this season, especially floral versions. Erdem’s floral pair is my top pick. 8. the long, high-waisted pencil skirt - the key length hits below the knees, as seen at Lanvin. Remember to pair with a leg-lengthening shoe for the most flattering effect. 9. the sports tank top - whether embellished, color blocked, or made of mesh, it’s an indication that the Olympics are near. Isabel Marant and Peter Pilotto showed sporty and scuba references.
10. the tribal top - it’s colorful, with embellished necklines or hand knit fabrications, as seen at Burberry or Jen Kao.

Photoshop is a way to put or remove something on the picture, you can also change a lot on the picture. In a good way, doing photoshop on a certain picture can make the result more beautiful rather than the original. But in the negative way, doing photoshop on a picture especially with no permission from the owner can be a crime.
To remind everyone of us, again and again, the use of new technology can good or bad depend upon the person using it. We are in the new world, many can happen in just a click of a finger. Someone may be in danger if we use it in an illegal way.
When we hear the name Paul Soriano, the first thing comes into our minds is the boyfriend of the celebrity/tv host Toni Gonzaga. But he is not just her boyfriend, he is a film and tv commercial director.
Being a director that has hectic schedules and a boyfriend of an artist like Toni they never forget to have an ample time for each other. Like that, Paul never forget to take his discipline of advertising and the the ethics of advertising.
Paul Soriano is a best example of a good advertiser, inspite of busy schedules he still manage and remember his learning’s from his studies.
Advertising is the best way to promote a certain product. Companies make tag lines in order their consumers can remember their product/s. The more unique the tag line, the more the consumers can remember the product. And Greenwich gave their consumers the cheesy tag line ever.
But first what is Greenwich? Greenwich is Philippines’ favorite pizza chain, giving you a scrumptious blend of exciting pizza and pasta innovations, all prepared for the comfort of the Filipino taste. You can have a taste of pizza with your friends, and family. That’s the best Greenwich can give you.
Greenwich gives the very popular tagline - “Sobrang Chessy”. That gives the televiewers and the consumers the mind of their product. This cheesy campaign is not about the way a guy tell sweet lines to a girl but the pizza. The pizza which has an overloaded cheeses on it. The best thing on this campaign is the endorser, John Loyd Cruz. John Lloyd say his lines in a very cheesy way. That can relate to the pizza he is endorsing.

AD/PR Case 6: Reality Bites - Back-to-basics still the best for shoppers
We all know that we, Filipinos have high sense of taste in fashion, food and even on high tech gadgets. We spent lots of money just to buy the best of the best, but we still have the thinking of saving money. Shopping while saving money at the same time getting the good quality of things we buy.
Retail consists of the sale of physical goods or merchandise from a fixed location, such as a department store, boutique or kiosk, or by mall, in small or individual lots for direct consumption by the purchaser.Retailing may include subordinated services, such as delivery. Purchasers may be individuals or businesses. In commerce, a “retailer” buys goods or products in large quantities from manufacturers or importers, either directly or through a wholesaler, and then sells smaller quantities to the end-user. Retail establishments are often called shops or stores. Retailers are at the end of the supply chain. Manufacturing marketers see the process of retailing as a necessary part of their overall distribution strategy. The term “retailer” is also applied where a service provider services the needs of a large number of individuals, such as a public utility, like electric power.
Now we can buy at the same time less effort, but using internet. Companies even an individual uses networking sites in selling a product in a low cost but but has a good quality product especially on buying bulk products.
Here are some tips in shopping:
Tip 1: Make the Store Your Last Choice Most people’s default response is to go to a store anytime they need something, but that’s not the only way to obtain a needed item. Ask yourself these questions:
Can I get it for free? If you don’t need something right away, and you usually don’t, it’s worth searching on community ad sites like Craigslist or Kijiji, signing up with some local Freecycle groups, and asking around to see if anyone you know is getting rid of whatever you want.
Can I borrow it? This tactic can be a great money-saver for any item that you use infrequently or will only need to use once. For example, if you only need to use a drill once a year when you change apartments and have to reinstall your curtain rods, you can get by with borrowing a drill from someone else. Many home improvement stores even have tools you can rent. Likewise, instead of spending money on the newest bestseller novel that you will probably only read once, head down to your local library and see if you can borrow the book.
Tip 2: Negotiate When Possible Some prices are set in stone, and it’s a waste of time trying to negotiate with someone who won’t budge. However, when you think there’s some wiggle room, consider these strategies:
Can I negotiate a lower price? While you probably can’t negotiate the price on many items, like new DVDs or a package of gum, there are plenty of situations where you can negotiate, even in a retail store. For example, if an item is cosmetically damaged, a store may be willing to offer a small discount because that blemished items tend to be more difficult to sell. If a salesperson wants you to buy a bunch of extras with a new computer or cell phone plan, ask for a discount - the salesperson they may be allowed to offer discounts in order to close the deal on big-ticket purchases. Of course, if you’re buying an item from a private party, you can always negotiate. Also, you probably already know not to automatically pay the sticker price on a car or house, because negotiation is standard practice on these major purchases and the sticker price is generally higher than the real amount the seller will accept.
Can I barter? Barter can be difficult because many people are not accustomed to doing it and it’s hard to find someone who wants the service or goods you have to offer in exchange for the what another person is selling. If you have some valuable products or services to offer, however, and you’re purchasing from a private party, it’s worth asking. Even if the other party isn’t willing to barter for the entire item, he or she may be willing to at least reduce the price in exchange for an hour of your expertise.
Tip 3: Time Your Purchase If you wait to purchase something until you really need it, you’re likely to pay the sticker price, but with a little advanced planning, you can save big bucks.
Will this item go on sale? If you want an electronic good, you will probably have to wait patiently after it is introduced - a sale will emerge once a newer model comes out or the regular price will drop as supply increases and demand drops. As new items become more popular, even if they don’t officially go on sale, you may be able to get a good deal on eBay. Certain everyday items, like groceries, toiletries and cosmetics, will always go on sale sooner or later, providing an opportunity for you to stock up when your favorite brands are priced at a discount. For anyone who doesn’t closely follow the latest fashion trends, clothes are best purchased during end-of-season sales, even if it means you don’t get much use out of them until the following year. Might there be a coupon for this item somewhere? Combine sales with coupons, and you’ll save even more. For the internet-savvy, eBay can be a great source of coupons, such as 10 buy-one-get-one-free coupons (abbreviated B1G1 in eBay lingo) of your favorite deodorant. The coupons might cost you $2.50 total including postage, but if you use all 10 of them, your net savings on a $3 stick of deodorant will be at least $27.50 plus tax. If you have time to look through a few pages of content, then sites that offer free printable coupons, like Coupons.com could be a good option for you too.
When shopping online, search for the store’s name plus “coupon code” before making a purchase. Many sites will advertise coupon codes to help give consumers a break. Sometimes you’ll enter coupon codes to no avail, but sometimes you’ll get lucky and get some savings like $5 off shipping fees or 20% off your entire purchase. It’s always worth taking a few minutes to look.
Can I get a better price somewhere else? It’s usually a bad idea to buy an item at the first place you see it because it’s very likely it is cheaper somewhere else. For expensive purchases where you have a lot to gain by comparing prices, and for situations, like online shopping, where it’s extremely easy to compare prices, the savings you’ll achieve are worth the extra time and effort. However, if you don’t stand to save much or are likely to waste a lot of time, gas and money by shopping around, don’t bother. If you’re pressed for time, you can avoid shopping around altogether by making a habit of doing all of your shopping at stores that regularly offer bargain prices, and you’ll be confident that you’re already getting a good deal. (To learn more about this ancient art of buying and selling, see From Barter To Banknotes.)
Tip 4: Substitute If the item you want to buy doesn’t quite fit into your budget, think about similar but less expensive alternatives.
Is there something that doesn’t cost as much, but does the job I need it to? Figuring out the real reason behind a pending purchase can help you brainstorm ways to achieve the same result more affordably. For example, if you’re worried about being bored during a long flight, you may want to buy a $125 spare battery for your laptop so you can get some work done. In this case, your main concern isn’t really getting more work done, but rather finding a way to occupy your time. Instead of buying that extra battery, you could use your laptop on the most energy-efficient setting until the battery runs out, and then spend the rest of the flight reading a library book.
Do I really want this? Wish lists can go a long way toward preventing impulse buying. By keeping a never-ending wish list, a person is less likely to buy items that have not been contemplated for at least a month, which provides sufficient time to decide whether the item is a necessity or just a want.
If the mere prospect of saving money isn’t enough incentive, consider the opportunity cost of buying an item. Maybe that new suit or purse isn’t worth it when you could use the money toward going on a vacation.
Tip 5: Expand Your Shopping Universe If you normally head straight to your favorite website, specialty store, or the mall when you need to buy something, consider these other shopping options that can save you a great deal of money:
Is someone personally selling what I need? Garage sales, moving sales and estate sales tend to offer all types of merchandise at much lower than retail prices. You are most likely to benefit from this type of shopping experience for items that are not necessarily needed right away. For example, goods like canning jars, dishes or a jewelry organizer. This can also apply to more practical goods as well. However, don’t expect to find absolutely everything at these sales, but do check them out from time to time to add value to your shopping budget.
Does it make sense to buy this item in bulk? Consider big box discounters as a source for the same products you normally buy at more expensive, specialized stores. You may not have ever thought of the drugstore as a specialty store, but when you start comparing their regular prices to those of discount stores like Target and Costco, you might change your mind. Even on inexpensive items like shampoo and toothpaste, drugstore prices can be significantly higher. As an added bonus, you can knock out several visits to smaller stores with one visit to a big box store, which also saves you time. But keep in mind that it doesn’t always make sense to buy in bulk. Stores like Costco and Sam’s Club charge annual membership fees that can easily offset your annual savings, and many people can’t use up an extra-large container of pretzels before they get stale. Checkout Time The ideas presented in this article might seem excessively frugal to some, but when you cut costs in lots of little ways, you can achieve big savings without making big sacrifices. Even thinking about how to save money on relatively minor purchases, like cans of soda or packs of gum, can result in significant savings when you buy these items habitually. It doesn’t take much time or energy to get into the habit of considering your purchases more carefully. You may not always make the choice that will save you the most money, and instead opt for convenience, but at least you will have made a conscious and well-informed decision toward that purchase.
We are now on the modern world. New technologies came out. And the biggest technology is the computer. The most portable way to surf, chat, explore and to discover different things in the world. Nowadays, ‘Internet’ has been a big use to people especially to advertisers. Companies make their own website in order to advertise their companies mission, vision, goal, products, achievements and the company itself. And since advertising websites are for advertising purposes it sometimes create WEB TRAFFICKING, in order for them to know the popularity of their website.
Here is a definition of WEB TRAFFICKING or INTERNET TRAFFICKING:
> Internet trafficking is basically a way of manipulating the search engines so that all of the traffic a website receive is independent. Internet trafficking is a way to also “trap” the traffic and send it to a specific location in where you want it to go. Search engine optimization (SEO) is a form of independent traffic building but it is not the whole topic in itself. There is no one set way to build independent traffic but if you can follow these principles and tips, you should do just fine. Being honest with you, the search engines think that we as independent internet marketers “NEED” them, but they better think again. I don’t have to be number one or be on the first page to steady pull in over six figures a month. You see, since the ranking of a website highly depends on content and links, building “quality” links going back to your site is another form of internet trafficking.
The biggest and best way to get independent traffic to your sites is to write a lot of articles that are highly optimized (keyword rich). Write the articles and implement them in your sites and your blogs just this one. The articles you write will work overtime in your favor in terms of rankings and traffic simultaneously. There is no one that knows your expertise and craft better than you do so all you have to do is write about it on the internet and the rest will be history. The money will follow.
The amount of traffic seen by a web site is a measure of its popularity. By analyzing the statistics of visitors it is possible to see shortcomings of the site and look to improve those areas. It is also possible to increase (or, in some cases decrease) the popularity of a site and the number of people that visit it.

AD/PR Case 4: Smart Ads - New Interactive Advertising Trend
Selling online products is a big trend now especially on social networking site like Facebook. In this way the advertiser and the consumer will have a good interaction relationship with each other. And that is a good choice for the advertisers but using online transactions can also make bad results. Because some users used networking sites (to be specific- Facebook) just to have money by fooling other people. So, if we are going to used this sites make sure we are going to used it in a good way.
AD-PR CASE # 3: FroYo and the Tickle in Our Taste Buds
We love desserts! Ice creams, cakes and even chocolates. And now we have this healthy and surely loved by consumers- Frozen Yogurt. It is healthy because it contains milk. It also contains nutrients that make us in a full diet. And surely loved by people because it has different flavors like strawberry. You can also put whatever toppings you want to add. People love new! and this kind of product really had a bid demand to its consumers.
AD/PR Case 2: The Future of Facebook Marketing Campaigns
We all know that we are on the modern world. There are new gadgets that can help us to do things in a better ways. Technology is one of the most convenient way. Facebook is an example. In Facebook we can find and add friends from different places. We can also find news from our favorite artist (fan page). We can chat and now we can see our chat mates through web cam. And truly Facebook became a huge trend. Having this kind of campaign is a big advantage to advertisers for people wants to get in, they patronize such social networking site like this.
AD/PR Case 1: Green-Minded Buyers - Indian and Chinese consumers more environmentally conscious than Western consumers, says MPG survey.
We all know that each one of us want the best for ourselves and for our family. So it is not a bad thing to choose the environmental friendly products. it is not only good for us. In having a environmental friendly products we can protect our Mother Earth from ultra violet rays. And mostly, it is better to choose the products made in our own country rather than imported.
