By achieving more than 20 million views, not only have we proved the reach of the network but we’ve also demonstrated the ability to engage moms.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 14, 2010
TouchStorm, a leader in online digital video, today announced that the Howdini video series developed for its client, Betty Crocker, has now surpassed 20 million views via the TouchStorm Editorial Network. The video series, which features professional cake baker Liv Hansen, author of Little Cakes from the Whimsical Bakehouse, and host Laurie Gelman, former host of Canada’s most popular daytime talk show “The Mom Show,” provides moms with a how-to guide to making a multitude of themed children’s birthday cakes.
TouchStorm works with brands to create online editorial video — not advertising — that help visually guide consumers as they search the web for information on a variety of topics. After conducting in-depth research via Search Revelator™, a proprietary TouchStorm tool, the company identified that Betty Crocker’s target consumers were searching online for information on cakes, and more specifically, children’s birthday cakes. To reach these consumers online, TouchStorm worked with Betty Crocker to develop a series of HD-quality videos on how to make a variety of specialty cakes for children’s birthday parties, including princess, train and dinosaur themed cakes aligning with the most popular consumer searches.
“Betty Crocker was one first large brand’s to test the power of the TouchStorm Editorial Network,” said Alison Provost, CEO and Chairman of TouchStorm. “By achieving more than 20 million views, not only have we proved the reach of the network but we’ve also demonstrated the ability to engage moms by providing them relevant information in a helpful, how-to manner, ultimately creating new customers and brand fans for Betty Crocker.”
