DB: 请问什么是ITTIZ？企业为什么会选择您呢？What is ITTIZ and why should businesses choose you?
At the core of ITTIZ are a group of people who are passionate about technology, creativity, design and the future. We have all come from different industries and different experiences to offer creativity to companies located in Shenzhen. We think that ideas can really transform industries and we are here to make that happen. Our rapid growth and high retention rate with clients has been due to the fact that we analyse entire business models and look at companies wholeheartedly before moving forward with any of the projects. This builds a certain amount of trust between the client which provides a long-lasting relationship. Basically, we become the marketing department of the company. Whether they want social media, design, video production, crowdfunding, or even commercial quality motion graphics, they end up using ITTIZ for the majority of these needs.
DB: ITTIZ营销团队为在线销售产品提供了有效的解决方案，但您认为最大的问题是什么？The ITTIZ team provide the solutions to effectively market products online, but what do you identify as the biggest problems?
We have had the pleasure of dealing with some amazing companies here in Shenzhen. A large majority understand that aesthetics (Branding & Design) are as important as the product itself. We have met other clients who are interested in short term gain and are not brand focused, but product focused. One of the biggest problems for us is trying to convince Chinese companies regarding how to market, brand and design their products for Western markets. What works in China does not necessarily work overseas.
DB: 最近有很多人在谈论您“掌控美国”的病毒式营销活动。这场活动的目的是什么？你觉得它成功了吗？There has been a lot of talk recently about your “Take over America” viral marketing campaign. What was the aim of the campaign and do you feel it was successful?
We feel that we need to showcase our creative ability from time to time by doing viral marketing stunts. The aim of the campaign was to creatively portray to Chinese companies that we can help them “Take Over” the American market. The campaign has been incredibly successful and we were featured on the home pages of many large publications. Not only that, but the envelopes have resulted in a large amount of interest and a few deals which we have already been closed.
DB: 这场运动是大胆的，存在着人们看不到的喜剧风险。请问人们是否有像您希望的那样做出回应？The campaign was daring and there was the risk that people would not see the comedic side. Did people respond as you hoped?
It’s very difficult to anticipate public response when launching a campaign. A lot of people did see the comedic aspect of the campaign, while a few others were not happy with the aggressive nature of the idea. Overall, the reception was good. We tend to not focus on the negative responses as us trying to deal with the negative responses would only make matters worse. It’s best to let these things play out on their own.
DB: 每种形式的社交媒体都有丰富的内容形式，以致于很难被注意到。请问如何使产品脱颖而出？There is an abundance of content on every form of social media which makes it hard to be noticed. How do you make a product stand out?
我们是以设计为主的公司。如果在社交媒体方面，我们的重点则以内容方面为主。 因为视频能获得最高的参与度，所以最近我们一直向其过渡。 最终，我们的内容应该为关注者提供经验，知识，或者某种情绪上的反应。 我们试图制作内容，让人们对产品有所了解。如果我们能做到这一点，观看它的人就会记住它。
We are primarily a design focused company. When it comes to social media, we focus heavily on the content generation aspect. Recently we have been transitioning more towards videos as they receive the highest amount of engagement. At the end of the day, the content should provide the followers with either an experience, knowledge or some sort of an emotional response. We try to make content that makes people feel something about the products. If we can do that, the people viewing it will remember it.
DB: 在社交媒体时代，潮流和营销策略在不断变化。请问您如何确保你的团队在比赛中领先？In the age of social media, trends and marketing tactics are constantly changing. How do you make sure your team stay ahead of the game?
Tactics and trends will always keep changing but the one thing that does not change is the human capacity for feeling and emotion. The ideas are what matter and not the platforms through which they are distributed. We always try to make the audience feel something and I feel that has resulted in a lot of success for us, not only for social media, but design, video production and campaigns.
DB: 与其他公司不同，ITTIZ要求与客户建立长期合作关系。 请问您为什么认为这很重要？Unlike other companies, ITTIZ claims to create long term relationships with your clients. Why do you feel this is important?
最后，ITTIZ试图通过整体定位，品牌设计和设计来解决公司所面临的问题，所以我们不会销售预制产品。 我们总是会先从客户那里了解他们到底有什么问题，并制定一个计划来帮助他们解决问题。 例如，如果客户端有一个非常糟糕的网站，并且想要做社交媒体，那么我们首先会修复网站，以确保网速处于最佳的状态。 我们在整体机制方面的经验有助于确保我们能最大限度地利用客户的资金。
At the end of the day, ITTIZ tries to solve the problems that the company is having with its overall positioning, branding and design and so we never sell pre-made products. We always start fresh with the client to see exactly what issues they have and create a plan that can help them solve the issues. For example, if a client has a really bad website and wants to do social media, we would first fix the website to make sure that traffic is converting in the most optimum way possible. Our experience with the overall mechanism helps to make sure that we are making the best use of the client’s funds.
DB: 请问您如何看待未来的ITTIZ？Where do you see ITTIZ in the future?
自从我们开设办公室的第一天起，我们一直在快速成长。 在我们成立的第一个月内，就拥有了客户。我们的工作需求量很大，因为我们需要不断为我们的服务添加不同的创意产品，帮助科技公司更好地向公众呈现创新。 我们感觉到中国与20世纪80年代的日本经历着同样的过渡，同样是从以制造业为中心到成为创新的领导者。 如果我们能够帮助一些这样的公司解决一些创造性问题，那么将可以加快转型。
We have been growing quite quickly since the first day that we opened our office. We had clients within the first month of our inception. We feel there is a large demand for what we do. We are going to keep adding different creative products to our services and helping technology companies to better portray their innovations to the public. We feel that China is in a similar to position to Japan in the 1980’s, where they went from a manufacturing hub to the leader of innovation. We believe that China is going through the same transition. If we can help with some of the creative issues with some of these companies, we can expedite that transition.
