  14. 14. Mistakes & MissedOpportunities● The time of the event was too short, and too late in the day - it got dark very quickly and was hard to see the chalk● Missed opportunity to include influencers (Fronts coaches, Hockey Players, Teachers)● Too long deciding on idea for the flashmob● Didnt use sidewalk chalk● Traditional media would have optimized potential to reach a different audience
  15. 15. Channel Choice● Too many channels were used● More time was needed before the event to establish more followers and potentially build a community● Should have chosen a few channels to work over and focused advertising on those and encouraged usage● Came to the conclusion that traditional media is needed in order to connect with such a large audience.
  16. 16. Content● Each channel had relatively same content, but some could have used content curation more● Only Instagram, Twitter, and Google + kept the audience updated during the event● Facebook was considered a "hub" but only included content that was shared. There should have been unique content such as other examples of flashmobs● YouTube was successful in uploading their videos that kept users engaged and the event at top of mind.
  17. 17. CMOST● Maximized CMOST● SlideShare was sent across Facebook and Twitter● Instagram and Twitter went hand in hand● There should have been more sharing via Facebook● Integration with traditional media would have exposed the event more to the community● Too many platforms resulted in other networks being under utilized (Pinterest)● Engagement with specific communities such as Fronts Fans would have benefited overall
  18. 18. Recommendations● Decide on event details sooner, had a last minute idea change● Launch channels prior to event and for a longer period of time in order to establish a community and build more followers● Choose fewer channels to avoid overwhelming viewers and encourage focus on only a few● Incorporate traditional channels to engage more target markets● Email influencers to invite them to the event and include the Fronts team
