The show follows a fairy warrior named Bloom as she enrolls at Alfea College to train and hone her skills. The series uses a serial format that has an ongoing storyline, with individual story arcs comprising each season. It premiered on 28 Januarybecoming a ratings success in Italy and on Nickelodeon networks internationally.
Iginio Straffi initially outlined the show's plot to last three seasons. He chose to continue the story for a fourth season in Around this time, Winx Club ' s popularity attracted the attention of the American media company Viacomowner of Nickelodeon. Production on the fifth, sixth, and seventh seasons was divided between Rainbow and Nickelodeon Animation Studio. Beginning inepisodes of Winx Club have been jointly written with Nickelodeon's American team.
Nickelodeon's writers aim to make the series multicultural and appealing toward viewers from different countries. InStraffi commented on his near-decade of collaboration with Nickelodeon, saying that "the know-how of Rainbow and the know-how of Nickelodeon are very complementary; the sensibilities of the Americans, with our European touch.
The series was subject to budget cuts induring its seventh season. The 3D computer-generated segments and Hollywood voice actors were deemed too costly to keep using. The seventh season eventually premiered on Nickelodeon's worldwide channels in After a four-year hiatus, an eighth season premiered in At Straffi's decision, this season was retooled for a preschool target audience. Most of the show's longtime crew members were not called back to work on season 8, and Nickelodeon's team moved to a consultant role.
Straffi stepped away from the series at this time, shifting his focus to live-action projects. The series follows the adventures of a group of girls known as the Winx, students and later graduates at the Alfea College for Fairies, who turn into fairies to fight villains. The team consists of Bloomthe red-haired leader with flame-based powers; Stellathe fairy of the Sun; Florathe fairy of nature; Tecnathe fairy of technology; Musathe fairy of music; and Aishathe fairy of waves. Unlike their female counterparts, the Specialists do not have magical powers and instead train how to fight using laser weapons.
The Winx and Specialists' most frequent adversaries are a trio of witches named the Trix: IcyDarcyand Stormyall of whom are former students of the Cloud Tower school. Winx Club is set in a vast universe that has several dimensions. Most episodes take place in the Magic Dimension, which is closed off to ordinary people and inhabited by creatures from European mythology like fairies, witches, and monsters. The capital of this world is the city of Magix—which is located on the planet of the same name—where the three main magic schools are situated.
The concept of fairy magic in the series is presented in the form of magical transformations, that fairies receive by performing certain actions.The eighth season of the animated television series Winx Club aired from 15 April to 17 Septemberconsisting of 26 episodes. Beginning with this season, the series was heavily retooled to appeal to a younger target audience. He shifted his concentration to other work with Nickelodeon, including Club 57as well as a live-action adaptation of Winx Club aimed at an older audience.
InStraffi explained his reasoning for gradually lowering the series' intended demographic:. The Winx Club notices that some of the stars in the sky are disappearing. They determine that the return of Valtor is linked to this strange occurrence. The fairies travel to Lumenia, the Magic Dimension's brightest star and the light source for Stella's home planet of Solaria.
Lumenia's queen gives them the power of Cosmix to protect the magical universe's billions of stars. Along the way, the Winx also meet Twinkly; a helpful golden creature who powers the very core of Lumenia. The Winx find that the only way to sneak into Valtor's palace and recapture the primary stars is to disguise themselves as the Trix.
In the ultimate battle of the cosmos, Icy works with the Winx; she gives one of the primary stars to Bloom and they all successfully recover the billions of stars and the Wishing Star itself. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

This is particularly the case when brands use influencers to amplify their own material. Often this relationship has been built up gradually, perhaps with a few comments on a blog or sharing an influencer's social media posts. Some brands try to speed the process up by providing incentives to influencers to help them out. This has traditionally been through some form of barter. For instance, brands often provide free products to influencers who review their products.
Influencers have become savvier of late, however. Many have signed up to influencer platforms and actively work with brands.
As brands can see the worth in this process, they are beginning to pay influencers - with real money, not barter. We believe that this process will accelerate this year. Micro-influencers will always be much cheaper than celebrity influencers, and because they identify so well with their target audience, they will often be more effective for a brand. Although agencies have started to add influencer marketing to their mix, they have been comparatively slow to endorse it.
This is probably because of the relatively organic way that influencer marketing has evolved. It is often small businesses or teams working company social media accounts in-house who experiment with using influencers to promote their products. Of course, agencies have always had involvement with celebrity endorsements, so many have dipped into influencer marketing involving celebrity influencers.
A few specialist influencer marketing agencies, such as IMA and Mediakix have lead the way, though, and as influencer marketing evolves more mainstream agencies will include influencer marketing in their full-service offerings. This will continue through 2017, with agencies working more with platforms to have a roster of influencer talent available for brands to work with.
This is another reason why we expect there to be a movement towards standard pay rates over the coming year rather than simple barter transactions. There seem to be new social media networks built every year. Some thrive, some like Tsu shrink away and eventually die. As bandwidths have improved, more and more social media users have had the opportunity to share visual media. Older networks, like Facebook and Twitter, have had to adapt to become more visual. Source: mediakixOther social media networks that specialize in sharing images and videos have thrived.
In the case of video, YouTube remains dominant (although Facebook has greatly pushed its video content).
