Luxury Watch Brand RAYMOND WEIL Launches an Unconventional Facebook Birthday Celebration to Connect Its Brand's Audiences and Honor the Power of the World's Largest Social Network

GENEVA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- Swiss luxury watch brand RAYMOND WEIL today announced that, in honor of Facebook's 9th birthday, it has redirected all of its corporate website traffic to its Facebook page. Acknowledging the shift in consumer behavior and consumption of social media, the gesture intends to acknowledge the power of Facebook to connect brands and fans with their larger social "hives." RAYMOND WEIL will do this by throwing an unconventional Facebook birthday celebration to create greater awareness, connection and buzz.

Throughout the day, RAYMOND WEIL's website traffic will be directed to the brand's Facebook page, which will share a special Happy Birthday Facebook message, providing consumers with a parallel of both companies' history since 2004.

The intent of the campaign is to connect individuals interested in or shopping for the brand or watches with a new way to engage and explore with RAYMOND WEIL. Those visitors who wish to discover the Swiss Luxury watch collection or access specific information about the brand will still be one click away from the dedicated Facebook Tabs such as the Watch Finder and Store Locator.

RAYMOND WEIL hopes that both its audience and Facebook will receive the well-gestured campaign with the good natured and social spirit that inspired the marketing move.

According to Alain Duchêne, Head of Digital for RAYMOND WEIL: "This campaign is meant to invite our whole community to join the conversation. RAYMOND WEIL embraced social media at an early stage because we believe in proximity and different ways to connect. It is part of who we are as one of the last truly independent family-run watch brands in Switzerland. SNS and Facebook in particular have changed the way we communicate and it makes sense for a luxury brand such as RAYMOND WEIL to dialogue in a straightforward, fun and closer manner with our consumer and followers."

Once the campaign is executed, the brand will review Facebook comments, actions and other points of audience feedback to measure its success.

According to David Scholberg, from KBSD Digital Intelligence, the international agency based in Geneva, Switzerland: "The metrics of this campaign are indeed of interest and always a key aspect in digital marketing, but the spirit of this particular campaign is a social drive from our teams leading to an engaging and original move."

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice.

In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
