The Re:Mark: Primark Goes Live
Written by Anna Rickards
This week I hand over to our Social Media Manager, Anna, who talks us through her newest social media obsession and why we should all be watching Primark Live in 2017.
We all have that one friend, you know the one that appears in the most perfect Primark purchase at an amazing price on a weekly basis; the friend that shops like a ninja and always seems to know when there’s a fresh delivery arriving, leaving you anxious that you might be missing out on all the best stuff.
As much as we’d all love to claim that our most prized shopping victories were all up to natural talent, a lot of the time it’s a combination of luck and determination. However, what if I told you that there’s another way to get ahead of the game and make sure you’re always in the know? We already showcase our top picks over on our Instagram, Facebook and Youtube channels, but now I have a new secret weapon. Enter: Primark Live, the latest hack to ensure you know what’s hot and in store that very second.
If you’ve ever spied your dream jacket on your favourite Youtuber’s Primark Haul only to miss out to your best friend who got to store at the speed of light, then this is for you. I’m already a huge fan of Snapchat, but now myself and my team will be broadcasting over on Facebook and Instagram too. Join us as we hand over the Primark keys to our expert fashion team, as well as our squad of incredible influencer talent, on a weekly basis. We’ll be inviting them to stream their purchases live from our Primark vlogging pod, sharing that moment we all love… the unbagging of a real life haul.
Want a taste of what’s to come? Well, back in December (it seems so long ago!) I kicked off the new series with Primark Live - a Facebook Christmas special: five episodes of fun, festivities and giveaways where we gifted over £1000 worth of vouchers and prizes to our viewers and celebrated our new favourite social media addiction. While it’s always scary hitting that ‘Go Live’ button (no filter! No delete option!!) it’s easier with friends, and we had the wonderful Dizzy Brunette, Maddie Bruce, Sabrina from A Little Obsessed and Elle Next Door dropping in to keep us company. Not to mention the dream team of Primark stylists and buyers all keen to show you their seasonal must-haves!
So if you missed out don’t worry, there’s going to be so much more to come. You can also expect style and beauty advise, as well as home interiors inspiration and many more special guests. I literally can’t wait!
All you have to do is follow us on Instagram and Facebook and make sure you have the alerts switched on so you never miss a thing. You’ll be able to make your wish list before you’ve even stepped into the store, making you the most savvy, switched-on shopper around. Just expect all your friends and family to be asking for your top tips next time they make a trip to Primark!
Want it, see it, buy it!
