I visited 2 advertising agency last week, one was Hill Holiday and the other one was Vaynermedia. Hill Holiday is doing more creating advertisement on print and digital and Vaynermedia is focusing on social media selling.
It was awesome! It amazed me!
I go to Hill Holiday on Monday because of my copywriting class. We met in their pantry and have about an hour of their copywriters teaching us the real world works. I was socked at the time I step in the pantry because he typical offices in Hong Kong are small but with many people. Hill Holiday’s pantry is already bigger than most of the small offices in Hong Kong. After the lesson, someone took us to have a tour of the office. The first thing she said was it has only 1 level. At that moment I thought it might be a small area with couple rooms that’s it. But when I walked through the whole level, it was big with many rooms and open space. I also saw a yoga ball and stuff. Every employees has at least 2 laptop and I saw most of them were writing an email and the other laptop was watching movie. It is so free and fabulous to work in such a environment! And I heard that they have a alcohol party every week.
I went to Vaynermedia on last Thursday because my friend were asking for feedback and investment of their CEO Gary Vaynerchuk. I wasn’t plan to go with my friend at first but my friend kept asking me so I went there. It was my pleasure to meet Gary kind of by accidentally. That was my first time to see a real meeting with business person. The meeting was quick but I learnt something. Meanwhile, Vaynermedia basically has the same style as Hill Holiday, it seems free. I saw yoga ball and basketballs.
I hope I have the chance to work in those kind of advertising agency one day!
Here is video which Gary talks about social media for sells nowadays.
