About:

Quiénes Somos

Falabella is one of the largest department stores in Chile and the most important in South America with a presence in Argentina, Perú and Colombia.  It was funded back in 1889 by Salvatore Falabella when he opened a tailoring store.

During the 60s, Falabella started to expand in Santiago and Concepción in Chile. Twenty years later, the store expanded even more when it launched its CMR Falabella, its own credit card, with the objective to offer a more flexible way to pay for its customers.

That is how for over 100 years it has been compromise to improve the quality of life of the Chilean people.

(5) Analysis

A. General

(A.1) Background: Inviting green background (color of the logo) that incorporates graphics and effects. Their webpage is also part of the background design.

(A.2) Avatar: Use their logo.
(A.4) Transparency: Using the initials of the people who write the tweets could add another touch of transparency.
(A.5) Bio Link: Not available on Twitter, but it is available on their website.

B. Tweets

(B.1) Replies: They reply to questions or suggestions.
(B.2) ReTweets: They have not used RT yet, but it needs to be considered that they just start to tweet two months ago.
(B.3) DM requests: They have used the DM, for example their first tweet was to respond a DM

(B.4) Hashtags: They have not used the hashtag up to date, but it needs to be considered that they just start to tweet two months ago.
(B.5) Favorite tweets: They currently do not have favorite tweets.
(B.6) The fact that they answer to DMs shows that they are open to a true conversation, however most of their tweets are marketing messages with good offers or advertisement.

C. Questions/Suggestions
(C.1) The fact that they answer the questions of their customers shows that they are open to a true conversation. Their tone is casual. They could enhance their conversation tone by adding a hello, have a nice day, it is raining today, etc. They only have a couple of tweets that start with good morning and few with hello, the rest start with an invitation to buy or to announce their offers.

E. Conclusion

FalabellaOnline in Chile implemented Twitter as a tool for their sales online only and they can pick it up at the local store.  It is a good way to encourage the online purchasing. Latino America is behind on the online sales, due to lack of trust of online security.
