Live Web Broadcast A Success!

I’ve been a little quiet here on my blog lately, much of the reason is my time is being eating up with the new venture I spoke about this in a previous post well I just want to update on the happenings with that website.

We broadcasted the St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2008 live on the homepage of the site and it was a huge success. We had viewers watching live from the U.S.A, Australia, New Zealand, U.K, Germany, France, Spain, Poland, India, Canada & Ireland. although the live stream was 43mins long I edited the stream down to 9:50secs for the main parts which you can view below.

We have posted 39 news articles including photos in less than 5 weeks and continue to post daily. The Online Video section of the site is proving very popular. Traffic to the site has increased by an average of 30% each week, which we are more than pleased. We are also getting local business interest in sponsored advertising so I will have to work on that strategy next!

That’s all for now…. short note: I have a nice “Band/Musicians” template module in the making which I will post up here for free download soon.
