Since Datavideo uploaded its products to the IABM BaM Shop Window™ back in August 2019, they have received 5,599 individual searches. They also gained 54 end-users visiting their website with the intention to purchase products. “We’ve received around 1,000 searches each month which is a great amount of exposure,” Lin added.

Part of the success of the BaM Shop Window™ has been down to the implementation of IABM’s Global Engaged Partner Program. This new initiative for users of broadcast & media technology is designed to foster collaboration and engagement across all sides of the industry. End-Users can apply to join this complimentary scheme to receive benefits such as access to business intelligence reports and IABM events. The GEP program has proved to be a great way of getting the message out about the BaM Shop Window™, which has helped many end-users to narrow their searches for suitable products.

IABM will continue to develop the BaM Shop Window™ in 2020, with the aim of further establishing it as the ‘go-to’ destination for end-users in the industry. It will also be enhanced from a supplier’s perspective, with plans for downloadable data-analytics already in motion. Members of IABM will be able to get valuable insights on how their products are performing on the BaM Shop Window™, which will include the number of searches and clicks on every product.
