We should all fly the flag, sing the national anthem with pride, learn the Diski Dance and celebrate Football Fridays.“Bring along your Diski Dance moves, as well as your knowledge about all things football. Most of all though, bring all your uniquely South African passion and energy.”The People’s Bus provided an interactive 10-minute tour including Fifa World Cup team facts and trivia, foosball table fun and a mini cinema showing unforgettable moments from previous tournaments. On exiting the bus, good luck messages that will be posted on the Brand South Africa and Bafana Bafana websites can be added to the bus message board.About the International Marketing Council of South Africa (Brand South Africa)The International Marketing Council of South Africa (IMC) was established in August 2002 to help create a positive and compelling brand image for South Africa. At that time, the world was unsure about what to think of South Africa, with many different messages being sent out by various sources. These did very little to build the country’s brand and it was evident that to attract tourism and investment there was a need to co-ordinate marketing initiatives to make them more effective.This led to the creation of the IMC, whose main objective is the marketing of South Africa through the Brand South Africa campaign. There are many benefits to having a consolidated brand image, with the most important being that a consistent Brand South Africa message creates strategic advantages in terms of trade and tourism for the country in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts At its Honeycomb event in Mountain View today, Google announced the availability of the long-awaited Android Market website: market.android.com.The aim of the site is to make finding apps easier, something that has long frustrated Android users. Before today, Android users have had to find and download apps solely via their mobile devices, an experience that pales compared to the browsing and sharing abilities offered by iTunes and its associated website.The Android Market website makes finding apps much simpler: there are categories down the left hand side, separate tabs for paid and free apps, as well as a search features, something that was oddly missing from the search engine giant’s previous app marketplace.
