Once again, I attended Web Wednesday Singapore 20.0 last evening (Wed, 28th Oct 09), which was held again at Home Club, the same venue as the previous Web Wednesday Singapore 19.0 (18.0 too!). Today’s speaker is from the local internet scene – Clemen Chiang, ‘Chief Evangelist’ and one of the founders of Cozycot.com, the #1 Women’s Site in Singapore awarded by Hitwise for 3 straight years in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
CozyCot.com features beauty, fashion, gourmet, mom, wedding, reviews and forums. It attracts over 17,000 forum threads, with over 1.6 million postings to date and more than 500,000 visitors per month.
Clemen Chiang shared with us “The 5 Critical Success Factors for a Women’s Site”.
#1. Secret Agent Double O
#2. Scaling The Cloud
#3. Socialize Networking
#4. Sampling Samples
#5. The Holy Grail
Apologize for the dark photos. 😛
#2. Scaling The Cloud – Clemen shared with the audience that Cozycot.com is using Amazon’s cloud solution. He also mentioned that there were 2 Amazon folks who flew to Singapore to attend this event. I didn’t managed to catch-up with them. 🙁
Attentive audience listening to the presentation. At some point of the presentation, Clemen also shared with us that we could get a free sample of a packaged beauty product from Cozycot.com by just sharing with our name cards with his team of ladies after the presentation. I forgot to do so. 🙁
Also, during this session, I also didn’t take as much photos as I was actively engaged in different conversation with other new and regular attendees. Good networking session!
I understand that the last Web Wednesday Singapore for the year will be on Wednesday 25th of November from 6:30-8:30pm – Craig Snyder from Akamai will be previewing Akamai’s ‘State of the Internet’ report. If anyone is interested, please log the date into your calendar! Or if you want, you can contact me and we’ll attend together. See you folks!
