San Diego (PRWEB) August 6, 2007
Digitaria, a full-service digital marketing and technology firm, today revealed details of the Saturday Night Live (SNL) Web site redesign. The new site (http://www.nbc.com/Saturday_Night_Live) features significantly improved design and usability, and searchable archives from more than 30 seasons of the show's history.
"We're incredibly lucky to have amazing content from 'SNL' as a starting point," said Vivi Zigler, Executive Vice President, NBC Digital Entertainment and New Media. "Our site is devoted to giving users the best possible entertainment experience and the 'SNL' features are great examples of that. Digitaria designed a great site that fans will love."
Saturday Night Live needed a Web site that would capture the spirit of the late-night comedy showcase, by extending laughs, surprises and performances to its online visitors, while ultimately increasing advertising sales performance. In addition, SNL aimed to gain insight into site activity and user behavior, and to promote a forum for user generated content and user feedback. SNL selected Digitaria for its long standing relationship with NBC Universal, and its ability to provide all aspects of the Web site redesign - from design to analytics.
Since the Web site launch in June 2006, SNL has carefully tracked site traffic and has measured a positive return on investment. "The number of television viewers that visit Web sites to collect information, is continually on the rise," said Digitaria CEO, Daniel Khabie. "By studying the online behavior of those viewers, Digitaria was able to deliver a successful relaunch that increased SNL site activity, and therefore advertising revenues, resulting in more than 100 percent ROI in less than six months."
Saturday Night Live was recognized as a 2007 Webby Award Nominee in the Television Web Site category.
