Apple Card: launch date in Oman

By announcing Apple Card, the company has made its first step into financial services with a numberless credit card which CEO Tim Cook calls the most significant change to card payments in 50 years.

Apple announced Monday (25) that it's launching a new credit card made for the iPhone. The card, which is both a digital card in the Wallet app and a physical MasterCard which offered in collaboration with Goldman Sachs. According to Apple, this new credit card meant to be easier to use and understand than most conventional credit cards. The card carries some fascinating benefits, like no late fees, no annual fees, no international fees, no over-limit fees, and a daily rewards program.

Users are able to get an apple card by signing up on their iPhone in the Apple Wallet app and get a digital card that they can use anywhere Apple Pay is accepted “within minutes.” Customers will also be able to track purchases, check balances, and see when their bill is due right from the app. According to apple; When you want to see how much you’re spending, there’s no need to log in to a separate website or app. Your totals are laid out for you in the Wallet app, by the week or by month.

They say the card makes it easy to spot trends in your spending as the spending categories are clearly highlighted with colors, so you can decide if you want to change them.

The tangible version of the Apple Card's design is what you would expect from Apple, the minimalism, debossed Apple logo, etched titanium slice, it immediately looks different and it takes a good security step by displaying only your name, without a card or CVV number. So all of that authorization information is stored directly in the Apple Wallet app.

This topic of this latest issue of Apple is very much trending at the moment around the world and it will be released to the market this summer. There's a good percentage of Apple loyal customers in Oman who are looking forward to this new payment method.


Al Aktham Restaurant Launches the first-ever Meter Grill Platter in Oman

Mirrors as a brand consultant always seeks to improve partners’ growth. In one of our weekly meetings with Al Aktham Restaurant, we suggested coming up with a unique idea to make a buzz in the market. So after a few rounds of brainstorming sessions, we proposed launching a new item which is a 1 Meter long grill platter.  We then explained to the client that this can possibly create a hype among the people. We started with creative designs while the client ordered to manufacture a wooden 1M long plate.

 

Al Alaktham Restaurant has almost 30 years experience in the market and prepared a mouthwatering grill spread. 

 

 

Finally, we launched the campaign on digital space. The sales and interaction with the campaign so far are more than the expectations. The demand is high not only for dining orders but also for deliveries. We faced some challenges because of delivery demands such as companies asking to deliver the platter to their offices and we were informed that setting up the platter at the companys’ premises excited the employees. They further said the staff of the companies applauded after the setup was done. With the success of this campaign, our client managed to boost their monthly revenue. The campaign is ongoing and the photos of the 1M grill have been shared virally all over social media.

 

 


Teachers day 2019

Some of us forget to appreciate the smallest things in life and even the biggest ones such as who provided so much knowledge to help us growing up. In the daily hustle and bustle of life we unintentionally leave out important stuff that should be celebrated without fail – like our teachers.

 

This is the video that we have done for Caribou Coffee in 2018 for the “Teachers Day”. Please let us know what you think in the comment section or DM us right away. Wanna make awesome videos? Get in touch!

How will Oman welcome WhatsApp new updated version with limiting message forwarding for 5 times?

Now you will no longer be able to forward WhatsApp messages to more than 5 times. Announcement from WhatsApp on Monday 21st January 2019 said it was restricting worldwide how many times any given message can be forwarded from 20 to 5.

Spreading of Mendacious campaigns and fake stories on WhatsApp has become a big problem around the world. Unlike other social media channels like Twitter and Facebook, WhatsApp messages are private and encrypted. Hence it’s very difficult to track the origin of the message.

WhatsApp spokesman said, “We’ll continue to listen to user feedback about their experience, and over time, look for new ways of addressing viral content.”

Countries like Oman with a fewer number of social problems may be affected by this release negatively as friends and groups are restricted to forward their messages. WhatsApp is already playing a major role in the communication system in Oman, not only among friends but within companies.  Due to it’s fast and convenience many companies in Oman are using WhatsApp as a communication method. So we will have to wait and see how the local market will adapt to this new version.

The company will release an update with forwarding limit, first to Android devices and then to IOS devices accordingly. Oman is expected the new release in near future.
