Before i answer the Question: What makes both Nuffnang and Hapee First Class? As what I've witnessed and see this logic based on my research and experience over the years:
Nuffnang is an Asia-Pacific blog advertising community. That supports and enhances blogger's skills as well as growth in various channels/means. It gives us the opportunity to learn, earn and network with other blogger's, readers to advertisers. Hapee is a world class Filipino brand that supplies good products like toothpaste and expands not only in the Philippines. But also to its foriegn neighboring countries. For quite a long period of time. Competing very nicely with prestigious like Colgate-Palmolive, Procter and Gamble and other world class brands.
Facts about First Class:
Generally speaking first class meant for me is that you have taste, when you think about the brand it first come up to you're mind naturally, not ordinary, premiere and world class.
I can see that Nuffnang and Hapee are First class. Because its not only growing to our country but also to foreign country as well. Like if you consider yourself an Athlete and you are not winning national competition and engaging or winning from other foreign athletes. Meaning to say your not 1st class or world class. Same thing to business if your not growing in your neighboring countries meaning to say your not first class. You need to win your customers/consumers/clients both local and international. Like what hapee and nuffnang do they expand and promotes advocacy's, useful product and good service. And that's the essence of first class meaning to say you're globally accepted. Because of good reputation, useful product and services as well as good advocacy.
