Catering for specific events BumeBox have a respectable list of diverse clients including Ebay.com, Marc Jacobs, Universal Sports, Dethrone and many more. Each of the online events carried out for these clients have resulted in massive spikes in social media ROI. One of the more recent events was Ebay.com’s Valentine’s Day party focusing on Ebay’s online retail and shopping for that day. Passionate fans talked to Ebay about Ebay, allowing them to participate in interactive conversations regarding the perfect Valentine’s Day gifts available on Ebay’s extensive site. The numbers alone were staggering with 9,300 tweets generating more than 14.2 million social impressions. In essence, Ebay.com’s site was viewed more than 14.2 million times during the online event held by BumeBox, creating a staggering marketing reach for Ebay, with each participant tweeting an average of 9 times. Other clients have seen their online revenue jump to 250% and 3000% month to month for a very credible online ROI due to the BumeBox platform.
While BumeBox’s past events have covered everything from online retail to fashion houses and sporting events, the sheer diversity of their past clients means that their platform is robust and flexible enough to cater to any business’s events regardless of field or industry. Mother’s day may still be rather far off, but there is always something going on online and if they manage to hook up a major electronics expo for an online explosion of social media they may be able to expand their own reach even further.
