How To Have A Digital Hit

Over to you

Question time was brought to life as Catchbox, the world’s first throwable audience microphone bounced around the room. To our surprise we learnt that the content alone did not make a hit. The ancillary products from tweets to teasers make up a staggering large percentage of the production. More so than in any other media channel. 

How To Have A Digital Hit

Sam & Jays take-away points;

  • What is a digital hit?… and why do you want one?
  • The usual rules don’t apply!
  • But then… some do.
  • Looks don’t matter. LOL’s do!
  • But it’s brilliant… That’s not good enough!!!
  • Narrative Arc? Ain’t nobody got time for that?

Thank you Sam & Jay and all those that attended. We must also thank our friends at Edition Digital, Faber & Faber and Colourbolt who filled the Creative Corner goody bags to the brim.
