CASE STUDY: USING SOCIAL WALL FOR YALARI SYDNEY DINNER EVENT
Yalari is a not-for-profit organisation that offers quality, secondary education scholarships at leading Australian boarding schools for Indigenous children from regional, rural and remote communities.
Yalari hosted its 9th Annual Fundraising Dinner at the Doltone House, Hyde Park Sydney. The aim of the event was to catch-up with their supporters and to let everyone know about what’s been happening over the past year.
The Yalari team wanted to use Social Media to engage and interact with the attendees and display these social media posts on the projectors in the function room.
As a result, we provided a custom solution that allowed the Yalari team to quickly update announcements from their mobile phones onto the projector as well as display their Social Wall with custom branding.
Our solution offering consisted of using two of our products: Social Wall and AdvertiseMe.TV. The Social Wall product was used to display their Social Media posts from Facebook and Twitter and also posts using the Twitter hashtag #YalariSD16. So when an attendee used the hashtag #YalariSD16 in their twitter post, it will automatically display on the Social Wall. Here’s a few screenshots of the solution:
The Yalari team was able to include some branding into the Social Wall page, by adding a custom header at the top of the page and a custom announcement at the bottom. Here’s a screenshot of the AdvertiseMe.TV dashboard:
Overall, we received positive feedback from using Social Wall at this event and the client was impressed with our services as we made ourselves available to make last minute changes before and during the actual event. We were more than happy to be involved with this great initiate and event.
“I contacted the team at Social Wall to run a Social Wall for the Yalari charity dinners. The team was very friendly, professional and passionate about helping us at any time of day. The night of the charity dinners, the support team was on-hand to troubleshoot any technical issues. Afterwards, in the aim of continuous improvement, the team made suggestions to improve and customise the Social Wall platform for the next charity dinner. The Social Wall was an interesting addition to the dinner events. It added colour and fun to the event. I highly recommend the team at Social Wall, particularly Marco and look forward to working with them again.” – Emmanuelle
