Home and Garden Television (HGTV) might not be your typical Silicon Valley start-up of high-tech powerhouse but as all media converges many traditional channles linke CNN, ESPN and HBO are getting heavily involved with bloggers and tech influencers.
Some interesting "planters" at the HGTV party house at SXSW
I had a chance to catch up with Vikki Neil, Senior VP & GM of Interactive Marketing for Scripps Networks, and discuss her strategy for the network’s first-ever SXSW event. The company practices what it preaches and renovated an old bar from top to bottom and from inside out just for this conference. They’ll be using the space to host nightly parties and concerts throughout the Interactive and Music festivals in Austin.
In this short video, Vickie explains her strategy and how it ties into the launch of a new HGTV digital property.
