Attempting to assist to promote the generosity & worthy cause behind the Christchurch Earthquake Benefit Concert at ASB Showgrounds, 11am-10pm - 1st April, 2011

Being brought into this project at a relatively late in the piece in the capacity of what has been termed, Social Media Coordinator. Being that this event blossomed on Facebook, the event coordinators understood its potential. This excert from Stuff.co.nz (2/3/11) came long before my introduction to the project on the 14th March. 

And a Facebook group – created by event organiser John Paul Moss – which started last Tuesday now has more than 13,000 people set to attend a benefit concert at at ASB Showgrounds on April 1 . If you would like to get involved in this event, email johnpaulmoss@yahoo.co.nz or search on Facebook for Christchurch Earthquake Benefit Concert – AUCKLAND.      (http://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/local-news/auckland-city-harbour-news/4718246/Auckland-concerts-raise-funds-for-Canterbury)

I was originally asked to come on board to 'run the twitter feed' but to be honest, being built of A Facebook Event Page, this concert was always going to spread best through social & traditional medias together. We are finding the YouTube Channel & playlist recently set up is seeing some traffic,  that starts with our new TV Campaign video then two sample tracks by each of the artists... its far to say its gonna be a long list...  Considering the context of the music industry, we are also finding a lot of artists use MySpace and have registered a profile there as well as on SoundCloud. 




Did pretty well we thought.... 

Also established... Sound Cloud Account ... Twitter (@CHCHconcert) and Facebook community page to enable us to reply to posts on the Facebook event as the title holder...
