Ad agency abandons website for Twitter presence

A few weeks ago, a Swedish ad agency moved its website to Facebook and, before that, another agency based their web presence entirely on Youtube. Now, another agency has decided to ditch its website and establish its online presence elsewhere - this time on Twitter.

Each section of their Twitter "website" has a separate Twitter account such as @kchtk_Clients and @kchtk_Contact. The Tweets, from all accounts, make up the content and provide points of contact.

While U.S. ad agency BooneOakley.com's move to host their website on YouTube was both informative and engaging, and Grey Stockholm's website move to Facebook makes great use of a social media space where 100's of millions congregate, Kamchatka's Twitter website feels disjointed and confusing.

Another downside is the requirement to Follow multiple accounts for one agency, guaranteed to put off many Twitter users.

Kamchatka appears to be relying on their potential customers being active Twitter users. This move, while creative and innovative, will seriously limit their potential audience compared with the awareness a multi-channel approach would achieve. At the time of writing the @kchtk_Tweets account has the most Followers at 154.

    If you move your company to Facebook they technically own your database, and lets assume now they let you use their plaform for free. Its not too hard to imagine that someday you will be charged to use your data that they own. Sorry, too many eggs in one basket. Not down with this idea.
