The Re:Mark: Primark Goes Live
Written by Anna Rickards
This week I'm handing you over to our Social Media Manager, Anna, who tells us all about her newest social media obsession and why we'll all be watching Primark Live in 2017.
We all have that one friend: y'know, the one who shows up in the most perfect Primark buy at an amazing price every week – the friend that shops like a ninja and always seems to know when there’s a fresh delivery arriving, making you worry you might be missing out on all the best stuff.
As much as we’d all love to say our sweetest shopping scores were due to natural talent, a lot of the time it’s a combination of luck and determination. But what if I told you there’s another way to stay ahead of the game and make sure you’re always in the know? We already showcase our top picks on our Instagram, Facebook and Youtube channels – but now I have a new secret weapon. Here comes: Primark Live, the latest hack to make sure you know what’s hot and in-store that very second.
Ever spied your dream jacket in your fave Youtuber’s Primark haul, only to lose out to your bestie who got to the store first? Then this is for you! I’m already a huge fan of Snapchat, but now my team and I will be broadcasting on Facebook and Instagram too. Join us every week as we hand over the Primark keys to our expert fashion team, as well as our #squad of incredible influencer talent. We’ll be inviting them to stream their buys live from our Primark vlogging pod, sharing the 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 $1200 of gift cards and prizes to our viewers to celebrate our new fave 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 psyched 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 advice, plus home décor inspo and lots 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 even step into the store – making you the most savvy, switched-on shopper around. Just expect your friends and fam to ask for your top hacks next time they head to Primark!
Want it, see it, buy it!
