In addition to the latest news coverage, NewsWatch provides public service announcements. On location interviews are a common feature, as well as video news releases. NewsWatch also frequently features non-profit awareness campaigns, and participates in marketing campaigns.
Saygus, a smartphone manufacturer, hired NewsWatch to participate in a marketing campaign, as they promoted their new smartphone line. NewsWatch produced and aired reviews, and traveled for the smartphone launch to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. NewsWatch filmed and produced segments of the launch and promoted the corresponding Indiegogo campaign, an international crowdfunding resource.
As a result of the campaign, Saygus met their funding goal, and exceeded expectations by over 300,000 dollars. Tim Rush, Vice President of Saygus, was quick to credit NewsWatch for their successful campaign. According to Rush, NewsWatch was able to provide Saygus with worldwide coverage in a professional video that delivered just the right message to the perfect audience. He highly recommends Newswatch as an “extremely professional, competent organization.” Rush goes on to compliment NewsWatch for being able to recognize the needs of the company and the consumer, and being able to connect the two.
