You can probably imagine just how much fun it’s been for the Travel Channel and Evoca teams to cook up an easy way for fans of Bizarre Foods to use Evoca to share their own “bizarre foods” stories with Andrew Zimmern and hear other adventuresome gourmets around the world. It’s now as easy as picking up the phone and dialing 1-877-57-FOODS to tell your story and then listen in online. The Travel Channel team just might pick your gastronomic tale to play online! Here’s the scoop about this highly popular Travel Channel series that you can catch any night: “Unmasking an aspect of dining out that will make you think twice before ordering off the menu, and utilizing his knowledge of all things edible, Andrew Zimmern is on a quest to find the world’s most bizarre foods. Andrew knows that one man’s poison is another’s delicacy but he isn’t afraid to poke a little fun at the local fare or himself. Our energetic food-a-holic infiltrates markets and restaurants taking viewers behind the scenes to savor the local cuisine – even if that means chewing on eggs with legs, gulping down a beating frog heart or polishing off a lamb’s eyeball. Andrew is game for anything and knows the most interesting food is found closest to the source. So whether he’s chasing down large water rodents in the Louisiana bayou, fishing for piranha in the Amazon or flushing out cave bats in Malaysia, you can be sure the guy with the iron stomach will dish up the unimaginable.”
It’s very special when we can work closely with “the home team” and that’s just what happened when we helped the renowned Savannah Music Festival (SMF), Georgia’s largest musical arts festival, to connect with its audiences that travel to Savannah from around the state, country, and world. Using our Phone-to-Web technology, SMF has been inviting its audience members to record their experiences online.
We teamed up with SMF to increase audience participation and build online community by enabling anyone attending SMF events to tell the world about their experiences at the Festival simply by picking up their phone. By dialing 912-330-4254 audience members can create voice recordings that appear on the Savannah Music Festival website during the event and throughout the year. The program is part of the Festival’s interactive marketing initiatives, allowing concert-goers to voice their experiences and opinions.
“From our past experience, we find that word-of-mouth is a terrific way to build audiences,” remarked Ryan McMaken, Public Relations Manager for the Savannah Music Festival. “When word-of-mouth extends to the Internet, we are reaching thousands of potential new audience members. This program also gives us another very user-friendly way of collecting patrons’ thoughts about our productions.”
Evoca delivers its digital media services to a wide range of users including organizations that run performing and visual arts events, television programs, and radio shows that are heard around the world. Now this jewel in Savannah’s crown can benefit from the reach of the Internet.
