The Ashy Bines Empire’s Social Media Presence

Ashy Bines has strong social media presence that benefits both her business and the companies she endorses. Through creating collaborations with brands and promoting products on her social media platforms she effectively provides a larger audience for the brands she supports and piques her audiences interest as she supplies them with discount codes.

Clean Treat Factory

Ashy Bines has collaborated with another fitness guru, Charlie de Haas to create the Real Treat Mix in various flavours that Ashy makes. Ashy promotes the various health sweets through her Youtube channel reality TV show where she and one of her ‘squad’ members  create the treats.

 

The Real Treat Mix is heavily advertised through the social media platform, Snapchat.  Ashy is a constant user of the application, and uses it to promote her limited edition Real Treat Mix. By using the Snapchat application to promote the Real Treats it creates interaction with her followers as they are able to see the process of the recipe.

Her Facebook platform advertises when there is a restock of the products and any girls that follow Ashy can ask questions and gain access to the products first.

Bye Bye Bloat Tea

The product of Bye Bye Bloat Tea was created by Ashy Bines in collaboration with Charlie de Haas who founded the Clean Treats Factory. The makers of the tea claims that it reduces bloating and is advertised by Ashy on snapchat every night as she shows how to make it and talks about the benefits.

On the website there is an explanation of what the ingredients are and what the tea will do for the consumer’s digestive system. “We’ve created a unique blend of digestive assistant herbs; fennel licorice and peppermint to help ease pain of digestive discomfort and wave bye bye to the bloat” (Clean Treats Factory, 2017).

Morlife Greens Powder and how it came to be Ashy’s ‘go to product’ was advertised on her Snapchat story as she discussed her likes and dislikes about the other greens powders in existence. The evaluation of some greens powders informed her Snapchat following of things they should look for when buying one of the products that was mentioned.

By popular demand Ashy created a video with a Naturopath, Sandy Ross who works for Morlife. Together they discussed the benefits and showed the audience how to make up the shake with the greens powder. By addressing frequently asked questions through a piece of social media content, they educated and entertained the audience while promoting the brand itself.

Ashy Bines successfully advertises multiple projects through her social media forums which include; Facebook, Instagram and, her major platform, Snapchat (ashybines1). The platforms provide her with opportunities to connect with her followers and market brands she’s involved with.

The Release of the 28 Day Booty Challenge
After completing her Booty Tour in 2016 Ashy Bines released her 28 Day Booty Challenge program to her social media following for no profit. The girls who joined the program within the access dates also gained access to the forum that was created by Steve Evans, Ashy Bines’ husband.


The program comes as an app that you install on your phone and requires a login that you create when you register for the program. The program contains a guide to choosing your desired goal which will determine the diet plan that you follow. By releasing the application to her following for no price the program increased in popularity and also widened her audience for her next program, Ashy Bines Squad Tour which began in Sydney on the 26th of March.

Samantha Leonard is one of the members of Ashy Bines’ squad and owns a company that  sells lip balms that won’t irritate anyone with sensitive skin called, Breeze Balm. Ashy features it in her snapchats and talks about how it can be used to sooth rashes and bites as well as moisturising lips.

As I attended two of the Booty Tour events I was able to purchase Breeze Balm, having used it on a regular basis I found that it’s a soothing formula that also relieves irritation when applied to a a mosquito bite or eczema.

Bondi Sands

Bondi Sands is a major brand that Ashy released a special video for which entails her tanning routine. Their brand is the main sponsor of the Squad World Tour and gave every participant in the Booty Tour a bottle of dark tan foam.
As a participant in the tour you receive a bottle in the goodie bag you are given once entering the event, along with other discount codes which I was able to take full advantage of when attending the events.

In 2016, Ashy launched her tour around Australia and New Zealand which promoted her new fitness program, 28 Day Booty Challenge. After attending two of the live workouts I can honestly say that Ashy Bines is an amazing  entrepreneur that cares about her followers and their well being.

The workouts were lively and energetic with her coaching a maximum of 4000 women at the Sydney tour. I myself got to experience the first Booty Tour stop on the Gold Coast, where she lives. The experience was amazing and Ashy and two of her best friends, Sammy Leo and Gretty Rose, rose to the occasion and coached the 1500 of us to the finish with funny banter and encouragement.

Ashy Bine’s Facebook Page

Ashy Bines made Squad to encourage girls to motivate each other with their diets and exercises. Until the 22nd of March the application for the Squad program was only offered to those who purchased tickets for her world wide tour. On Wednesday the 22nd she announced on her social media pages that she will be letting girls worldwide access the application for two weeks for free, which is a major promotional use of social media.

Her friend and business partner, Gretty Rose also has a clothing line called, Gretty Rose The Label, which launches with new styles every week on Thursday at 5:pm (QLD time)  and always manages to sell out of the clothing.

Gretty Rose the Label was promoted by Ashy Bines on her reality TV show, Raw and also on her snapchat (ashybines1).

As Gretty Rose is a part of Ashy’s Squad, her company was supported by Ashy Bines fully and her followers got behind the fashion line.
The style is designed by Gretty and channels a hippy, bohemian looked with beautiful fabrics imported from overseas.

 

 

 

A major announcement was made in the new year of 2017 with Ashy Bines declaring a new project, Toned by Ashy Bines. Her active wear line launched on the 16/03 and gained traffic of over 5000 girls trying to get their hands on Ashy’s exclusive line of clothing.

The active wear range’s first release was promoted on all her social media channels with promotional video’s, images of the line and posts about the launch date.

Ten Tips to Travel; Southeast Asia

10. Know your exchange rates

Knowing exchange rates of your countries money value compared to your intended destination very important; leading to successfully bartering down a great souvenir or being ripped off.

Exchange rates can be hard to figure out so I would recommend a currency converter; quickly calculating the worth of the foreign currency to your own currency which can be found here.

9. Accomodation in social hubs

Airbnb is an accomodation service in which people are able to rent out their houses to tourists in unique spots in the country they live in. Most Airbnb houses are cheaper than the average hotel and offer home appliances that hotels don’t such as; ovens, laundry machines, fire places and sometimes transport.

Airbnb encourages travellers to not just go there, ‘live there‘.

Book your accomodation at Airbnb

8. The Do’s and Don’ts

As Southeast Asian countries are conservative and generally follow Buddhism tourists who are travelling to rural areas should be advised to dress in a non provocative way as it may attract negative attention if they show inappropriate amounts of flesh.

Customs are to be respected; one custom in particular is paying money with two hands and receiving change with two hands. This shows that you respect your transaction and are thankful for the service you’ve been provided with.

“Although people in Southeast Asia are extremely tolerant and forgiving and blessed with a gentle religion and an easygoing approach to life, visitors would do well to observe proper social customs to avoid embarrassment and misunderstanding.”

7. What is it worth?

Bartering is a verbal exchange of the price that the customer is willing to pay for a object with the shop keeper’s preferred price of sale. The objects for sale are usually placed at a higher price than they are willing to sell it for; this is why it is important to know the exchange rates.

Typically, to get a good deal, start at 50% of the price propositioned and you will usually end up at paying 70% of the price. Just remember that if bartering in South East Asia the price is a lot less than what you would pay in a western country and they are living in a third world country that needs the money.

Some useful bartering tips can be found on this website.

6. Getting around

There are many means of transport in South East Asia ranging from aeroplanes to trains to tuk tuks.

For long range travel the train system is a cheap option that gives you a local experience. The train from Hue to Hanoi is a beautiful trip through the Vietnamese countryside with the highest ticket price at $57.00.

For a fast, cheap and cultural transport experience around the local area – a tuk tuk is the way to go.

5. The must see’s

There are many websites with ‘must see attractions’ in South East Asia but this website was the best in my opinion.

I myself would recommend seeing Ta Prohm, the tree temple in Cambodia where nature has taken over the architecture built in the 12th Century.

4. Exciting Cuisine

To get an insight into asian culture a lot of food must be consumed. Morning Glory is an amazing restaurant in Hoi An described as excellent by over 5,000 consumer’s.

3. Speaking to, not at

Screen Shot 2017-03-23 at 2.51.22 pm

Most people of Asian descent know basic English because it is the common tongue in the current society. When communicating with people who are local to the foreign country you are traveling in, be direct and respectful and understand you are a visitor in their country.

2. Spiritual Existence

There are different festivals celebrated throughout South East Asia as there are different religions followed, although the main religion is buddhism.

Chinese New Year is a major celebration that occurs all across South East Asia for 15 days with the most recommended place to celebrate being in Hanoi, Vietnam

A great way to gain a unforgettable experience in another country is to contribute and aid the community in some way. This can be done through charities like the Tabitha Foundation and Sail Vega both of which take volunteers.

A short video produced by the Australian International School in Singapore shows a charitable group working on an orphanage in Vietnam.

Social Media’s Influence on Published Works

Loung wrote this memoir in 2001, sharing her experience caught in the Khmer Rouge and the horrors she and her family went through. Other memoir’s about the Khmer Rouge like; ‘Year Zero’ by Seng Ty and ‘Stay Alive My Son’ by Pin Thay also tell personal stories about the Khmer Rouge and inspire their audience with the bravery of the author’s.

Though all of these memoir’s are incredible pieces of work, Loung Ung’s book was chosen by Angelina Jolie for it’s confronting story. Ung’s book has been flooded with attention on social media and the movie adaptation will premiere later in 2017.
