I Want Me Some of That User-Generated Content Thingamabobber

fam_circ_brickfish.jpg

Before we get into this story, let's make sure everyone is on the same page regarding User-Generated Content. Thanks to Brickfish, which just launched a User-Generated Content campaign for Family Circle and eBay, we have this handy explanation.

"The campaign relies on User-Generated Content [get that??? USER-GENERATED CONTENT!] to reach women across the Web. Brickfish campaigns are designed to spark the creation of brand-focused UGC [that's USER-GENERATED CONTENT, by the way] such as blogs, images, video and audio. Brickfish's content sharing tools enable anyone to view and review submissions, vote on their favorites, and share them with friends and peers using email, Instant Message and postings on hundreds of social networking sites including Facebook, MySpace and many more [get that" MANY MORE!!!]. Brickfish campaigns become extremely viral [that's VIRAL, people! VIRAL! VIRAL is cool!] using a peer-to-peer marketing approach."

Isn't USER-GENERATED CONTENT cool? Neat, huh?

Anyway...oh wait...you want to know what the USER-GENERATED CONTENT thing is? OK. It's called the Family Circle-eBay Mother-Daughter Wardrobe Challenge. That's right, people. It's all about the celebration of mothers and daughters sharing clothes. In most cases, that's really not such a good idea but, apparently, there are, in fact, mothers and daughters out there who do this sort of thing. According to the Mother-Daughter Wardrobe Challenge, there's at least ten of them.

USER-GENERATED CONTENT, people! It's the new, new thing!! You've got to try it!!

User-Generated Content is peer-to-peer viral marketing. Who wouldn't be attracted by such carefully-crafted MBAspeak?

Hey mad kidz, get the 411 on UGC, a P2P way to be kewl!

It's just painful. Like listening to your parents trying to use your vernacular.

Omega Watch–Show Men Masculine, Embody Lady Elegant.

Omega Seamaster De Ville, was an early “waterproof” watch,
with automatic movement and date, in 14k gold. The forerunner
of Omega was founded at La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland in 1848
by 23-year-old Louis Brandt, who assembled key-wound precision
pocket watches from parts supplied by local craftsmen. He sold
his watches from Italy to Scandinavia by way of England, his
chief market. After Louis Brandt’s death in 1879, his two sons
Louis-Paul and César, troubled by irregular deliveries of questionable
quality, abandoned the unsatisfactory assembly workshop system in favour
of in-house manufacturing and total production control. Due to the greater
supply of manpower, communications and energy in Biel, the enterprise moved
into a small factory in January 1880, then bought the entire building in
December. Two years later the company moved into a converted spinning-factory
in the Gurzelen district of Biel, where headquarters are still situated today.
Their first series-produced calibres, Labrador and Gurzelen, as well as the
famous Omega calibre of 1894, would ensure the brand’s marketing success.
Louis-Paul and César Brandt both died in 1903, leaving one of Switzerland’
s largest watch companies — with 240,000 watches produced annually and
employing 800 people — in the hands of four young people, the oldest of
whom, Paul-Emile Brandt, was not yet 24. Brandt was the great architect
and builder of Omega. His influence would be felt over the next half-century.
The economic difficulties brought on by the First World War would lead him to
work actively from 1925 toward the union of Omega and Tissot, then to their
merger in 1930 within the group SSIH, Geneva. Under his leadership, and from
1955 that of Joseph Reiser, the SSIH Group continued to grow and multiply,
absorbing or creating some fifty companies. By the seventies, SSIH had become
Switzerland’s number one producer of finished watches and number three in the world.

Weakened by the severe monetary crisis and recession of 1975 to 1980, SSIH was
bailed out by the banks in 1981. During this period, Seiko expressed interest
in acquiring Omega, but nothing came out of the talks. Switzerland’s other
watchmaking giant Allgemeine Schweizerische Uhrenindustrie AG (ASUAG),
principal manufacturer of ébauches (unfinished movements produced for a range of
other Swiss watch assemblers) and owner of the Longines and Rado watch brands,
was similarly saved a year later. After drastic financial cleansing and a restructuring
of the two groups’ R&D and production operations at the ETA complex in Granges, the
two giants merged in 1983 to form the Holding ASUAG-SSIH. In 1985 the holding company
was taken over by a group of private investors under the strategy and leadership of
Nicolas Hayek. Immediately renamed SMH, Société suisse de Microélectronique et d’
Horlogerie, the new group achieved rapid growth and success to become today’s top
watch producer in the world. Named Swatch Group in 1998, it now includes Blancpain
and Breguet. Omega remains one of its most prestigious brands.
Replica Omega Watch is also very popular today with its fashionable design amd lower
price. Many people like to wear Replica Omega Watches for it showes their status and
elegant and handsome appearance. When a man wear Omega Replica Watch, he will be more
masculine and when a lady wear, it will be more attractive than wearing other ornaments.
Of cource, one of the most attractive reasons is that the price is much lower than the real
ones. After all, not everyone can afford the whopping price of the authentic watches. And
then the replica one is a very good choice.
