Goals

Rugby World Cup content carrier Universal Sports anticipated heavy tweet activity around the 3rd largest sporting event in the world. Their goal was to figure out a way to make millions of tweets meaningful to the individual rugby fan. 

Execution

BumeBox powered an onsite experience that allowed RWC fans to quickly connect to team relevant content and fan tweet conversation. Bumebox created a database of terms related to various competing teams, players, coaches, hashtags, etc. and created a team-centric experience. BumeBox also incorporated event relevant real-time information such as a live scoreboard, trending teams, and breaking news. This experience linked through to Universal Sports video subscription service which exceeded their sales goals. 

On the heels of our first ever #eBayChat earlier this week, I’m excited to see that we have another Twitter first coming next week. On Monday, November 21, eBay will be hosting it’s first “Holiday Twitter Party” (#eBayHoliday) at ebay.com/holidayparty
