Using Real-Time Media To Drive Real Results

Last week we hosted #SoRightLive, our first-ever live video webcast featuring RadioShack products and people.  Powered by Twitter, Facebook, and Ustream, the event included 5 broadcast segments showcasing “So Right” gifts: from smartphones and RC cars to headphones and DIY tech kits.  All segments were hosted by RadioShack’s own Ricky Cadden, Paige Guyton, Danny Ramirez and Lauren Kushnerick and we built out a full set at the Dallas Omni Hotel.  The video below has some must-see highlights.

 

Why is this news? Glad you asked. This combination of real people showcasing technology using social media delivered the following results:

  1. 80 million global impressions (30M U.S.)
  2. 550 total hours of video viewed with 2K streamed views.
  3. Average viewing time per user: 20 minutes
  4. 4% engagement rate on Twitter
  5. 20+ bloggers, influencers and experts participated in the on-site studio event

#SoRightLive was an experiment for all of us and there are several learnings we’ll apply to future episodes.  Since being tasked with launching the interactive practice at RadioShack my goal has been to humanize the brand and ensure our consumer communications had just as much heart as muscle.  Traditional media like TV, radio, print and direct mail play a vital role in the consumer’s path to purchase and our goal as interactive marketers is to close the loop with media, messaging and motives that builds trust.  It’s a word we don’t use enough considering it ultimately decides how, where and when consumer’s spend their money.

Thanks to everyone for their hard work on delivering with excellence today while moving the needle for tomorrow.  More to come. Get ready 2012.

Would love to hear from other digital marketers and influencers on their experience with live events. What role can it play in driving real conversations?

  29. Brazilian Hair

    Painful waxing and tedious shaving are things of the past when it comes to removing unsightly hair.
    Brazilian laser hair removal is today’s more popular treatment, used by both women and
    men, for getting rid of unwanted hair. Easy, convenient and considerably less
    painful than traditional methods, Brazilian laser hair removal offers patients a wide range of options and costs.
    The words ” bikini wax ” automatically sends a shudder
    down our spines. It’s always painful , often pricey and can potentially lead to STIs But this hair removal treatment
    is how we avoid having a Miranda Brazilian moment when Samantha calls her out for sunbathing with a “hairy bush.”

    Blondes have always managed to garner a whole lot
    of attention to them selves. This same attention is replicated affordable brazilian hair extensions even when
    it comes to blonde wigs. Amidst the numerous hues available in wigs,

    Starting from 48 hours after the wax, moisturise and exfoliate
    the waxed area regularly to reduce the risk of ingrown hairs, using suitable products that are
    not too heavily fragranced. If any irritation has occurred, antiseptic cream can help.
    Dead sea salt used as bath salts can also
    help prevent infection as can anti-bacterial shower gels.
    Soothing lotions and gels, especially those containing products such as tea-tree
    oil, aloe vera and witch-hazel can also alleviate irritation.

    The “Brazilian” has prompted many below-the-belt beauty trends including “Vajazzling,” a temporary crystal tattoo placed in the bikini area (See ” What is Vajazzling “) and Vatooing, temporary ink tattoos for the nether regions.

    This method is effective in the way that it provides the best
    solution to remove hair when compared to other conventional methods.
    It leaves the skin soft, clean and free from unwanted hair It also doesn’t allow
    coming up of hair for at least 2 to 3 weeks. Because hair is pulled out from the roots,
    it stops repeating hair growth frequently and helps in reducing the
    growth of hair over a period of time. or one of the
