Brandlive Selected by Best Buy and GoPro to Launch Product from VidCon 2015
Top consumer electronics retailer and brand make innovative use of web-based live interactive video platform
PORTLAND, Ore. — August 11, 2015 — Brandlive, a web-based live video + social + eCommerce platform that brands and retailers use for product training, marketing and eCommerce events, was selected by Best Buy and GoPro to host a live product launch from the VidCon 2015 conference.
The live broadcast featured the founders of the production company Corridor Digital, who shoots many of their videos on GoPro cameras, and Jamie Reese, GoPro’s Mass Market Trainer. The focus of the event was on the new GoPro HERO4 Session camera.
This was Best Buy’s first live interactive video event and they agreed to go with the Brandlive platform after researching various solutions.
“The Brandlive platform had all of the features we were looking for to support the focus on GoPro’s exciting new product and interaction between the on-camera hosts and the digital audience,” said Josh Arnold, Best Buy’s Event Marketing Manager.
The type of events that can be conducted on the Brandlive platform create a new omni-channel consumer touchpoint to retailers like Best Buy, helping to bridge the brand experience gap that exists between physical stores and online stores, bringing components of each together in a new type of digital experience.
“This type of innovative partnership between a brand and a retailer represents one of our core tenants, which is to bring product experts and endorsers together with digital audiences to conduct authentic interactions. When product experts can connect directly to audiences on any device, there’s no need for marketing messages to stand between a brand’s products and the consumer,” said Fritz Brumder, CEO of Brandlive.
