Mazonai believe that the current market doesn't require direct brands to sell at every opportunity but to create awareness through social media interactions, the message gets through in a more discreet manner. By encouraging consumer interaction it allows a personal bond to be made with the brand and research has shown this is one of the most effective ways of creating brand loyalty.
Mazonai creates campaigns that allow the brands to be exposed and allows fun and pressure-free platforms for their clients to generate new customers and increase brand awareness.The brand are advocates of the face-to-face approach as they believe it can offer a more personalised customer experience. However, social media is an efficient tool to maintain and nurture the relationships built with customers following the buying experience.
