Skateboard supersite The Berrics sees 150% lift in live event viewers with Ooyala
Friday, December 8, 2017
The Berrics has the most awarded skateboard site in the world. In 2007, professional skateboarders Steve Berra and Eric Koston opened a massive skateboard park in an industrial area near downtown Los Angeles. They named this first-of-its-kind park after themselves (BERa + eRIC) and it’s been a mecca for avid skateboarders ever since. On TheBerrics.com, fans can watch a steady stream of skateboarding videos: from trick feats to skater profiles, to original series and just about everything in between. If it’s interesting to their legion of skateboard followers, there’s a video for it.
What’s next? If you’re TheBerrics.com, the answer is adding live video and shareable content with Ooyala to maximize engagement. Our new case study shows how The Berrics:
