Bithub and Harness Digital Marketing Bring Social Media Hubs To Events
How many events do you attend? If you live in Southern Illinois, you could attend up to 2 major events each month. Events such as the John A Logan Hunting and Fishing Days, Concerts Sponsored by Black Diamond Harley Davidson, Fundraisers, or one of the biggest and well attended events, The Hospice of Southern Illinois Red Carpet Gala are only a sample of some of the major events in our area.
The Hospice Red Carpet Gala is held every January at the Williamson County Pavilion. The theme for this year’s gala was Late Night TV. It is very fitting that the theme would go along with the debut of a new technology service offered by BitHub and Harness Digital Marketing. Both companies offer a unique experience that integrates social media and interaction at events. As we spend more time on our phones taking selfies and videos, we don’t always get the opportunity to connect with others at a major events. BitHub offers the opportunity to get people ENGAGED and INTERACTIVE through streaming content from various social media websites.
During the Hospice of Southern Illinois Red Carpet Gala, participants were encouraged to take photos and post them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with the hashtag #BeBurgundy. Their unique and intuitive service allows a paid subscriber to pre approve content to a HUB (streaming website feed) for participants to share their experiences on TV’s and large LED Screens. BitHub offers free “public” hubs, but they can not be filtered for such things as profanity or nudity (I highly recommend paying for the service if you use it live). Along with the interaction among the attendees, we promoted the sponsors on the hub to give them thanks and get them in front of potential customers.
Along with having access to the live HUB, we worked closely with one of their graphic designers, Skyler Taylor, to create a webpage that reflected the theme of the night (Late Night TV). The team of developers and our point of contact, Mihael Konjevic, were on hand to make sure the mobile version of the website would allow us to approve content from our iPhone and Android devices.
We were excited to partner with Paula Strozak at BitHub and provide a unique social media experience for everyone at the Hospice of Southern Illinois Red Carpet Gala.
