We live in a culture that’s obsessed with the celebrity. From tabloids to reality TV, we’re fascinated by the lifestyles of the rich and famous. And now, with social media and live video, we can feel more connected to them than ever.
Which is why Katy Perry’s video campaign for the release of her upcoming album was so brilliant.
Capitalizing on her audience’s desire to learn everything about her, Katy livestreamed her life for 4 straight days on YouTube. Fans got to watch her eat, sleep, sing, and hang out with other celebrities during her livestream, Witness World Wide.
And like any good video marketing team, her editors cut down the highlights of the livestream into sharable, bite-sized videos.
So if you want to learn more about why Katy Perry’s video marketing stunt was so successful, plus news from Foot Locker, Snap, Twitter, and more, you won’t want to miss out on this podcast episode!
