@Theashes phenomenon @Theashes phenomenon Document Transcript

  • A Twitter phenomenon@theashes
    It all started with a tweet
    @theashes is a real life, tangible example of the power of social media
  • @theashes
    It began for @theashes when she received thousands of tweets from cricket fans during the Brisbane Ashes Test.
    Off the back of her response of “I’m not a freaking cricket match”, an online conversation #gettheashestotheashes was started
    One Small Planet’s tweet centre pushed this conversation along
    She has now a following of around 14,000
    We brought in @LJLoch of Republic PR who channelled the tsunami of global media interest across Australia, the UK, the US, India and South Africa, co-ordinating live cross after live cross
    Now, for example, from one tweet @theashes can generate nearly 20,000 impressions
  • @theashes
    One Small Planet picked up on the call to #BringTheAshestoTheAshes
    …we then coordinated:
    QANTAS @QantasAirways to bring her to Australia
    Travelscene American Express @travelsceneaus for a hotel
    Vodafone @Vodafone_au to provide a phone
    Ford @FordCastleHill to provide local transport in a Ford Fiesta
    Harts Pub @HartsPub to put on a backyard cricket match and a BBQ
    Holy Cow @SailingAus for a tour on Sydney Harbour
