Website Launch Success

Wed, 24 Aug 2011

This past week saw the launch of a new skatinginbc website. The design and layout was created by Red Rocket and the staff of the BC Section office. We tried to have a unique, clean and stylish look while designing clear and easy navigation. Although we had a few minor glitches on the weekend with the site going down as a result of the activity, overall the performance was very strong. Here are the important numbers showing the activity:

 

> 17,000 visits

> 5.3% social media referrals – anything above 2.5% is considered good. 

Live Streaming a big hit!!!

Wed, 24 Aug 2011

The live streaming of BC SummerSkate once again drew excellent numbers. We streamed both rinks which added to the complication of the operation and manpower required, but with the help of Steve Muff (BC Director of Development) it all worked beautifully. We had four cameramen to work those long hours covering every skater. Peter Lang, Rob Woodley, Jesse Sturdy all former skaters and now coaches and Neal Melancon. Thank you for all your great work.
