AssistNZ was recently contacted in regards to the promotion of the event “Christchurch Earthquake Benefit Concert”, which unfortunately was ultimately cancelled. We would like to clarify that AssistNZ did not take on the offered role of running a Twitter feed for the event, as this falls outside the scope of the advisory and consultant services that AssistNZ offers.
One of our consultants did however agreed
to help out in a personal capacity, on a voluntary basis, and set up and ran a
Twitter feed about the event, as well as creating pages for the event on
MySpace, YouTube and Soundcloud.Good work Jess, see more here.
A substantial public response was received over these channels, and they proved particularly useful for coordinating with artists and performers. It was great to see how quickly people got the word out and the enthusiasm with which artists contacted us with information, tracks to add to playlists and all the other support that was received.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to
the sponsors and all of the many people who volunteered their time and efforts
to help on this project, and it is with great regret that we heard the news
from the promoters that the event had to be cancelled.
