Our Mother’s Day event make a tremendous impact on media
Ozge Canevi, Corporate Communication Manager, attended the meeting on behalf of Altinyildiz Classics holding the Most Successful Social Media Usage Award in the Retail Sun Awards. Canevi said, “Social media has reached so important a point in reaching the consumer. Social media is a difficult area for a menswear company. However, if you own your job with love, creative and sustainable ideas automatically come up. For instance, we had so special an event on the Mother’s Day and asked the people by what name they were registered in their mothers’ telephones. There was an incredible interaction. We received so different replies. We observed that those who said “Oglusum” were the majority. And we named the project “Oglusum” among us.
