The Campaign


Radio 1 ran a charity campaign in 2016 with the goal of getting their listeners to pledge their time to charities as volunteers. Their message was simple, “As a society we face lots of challenges, which can sometimes seem impossible to sort out. But if a lot of us do a little, we can make a difference. Just a few hours of your time can change the life of someone in need”. The goal was to reach 1 Million Hours of time pledged.


Listeners were encouraged to sign up to donate their time to various partner charities and then Tweet about their involvement along with the #1MillionHours hashtag.  As a surprise they, could then be selected to receive a personalised ‘Thank You’ message from a Radio 1 DJ.


How It Worked

@BBCR1’s social media team logs into the online EchoMany Platform Dashboard, which links into their official Twitter account via API

Tweets with the #1MillionHours hashtag are automatically pulled through to the dashboard via live-stream or advanced search.

@BBCR1’s social media team hand selects which Tweets they want to receive a personalised reply, and generate their EchoMany video live and in real time

Each video is dynamically personalised with the users’ profile picture, @Handle, name and Tweet – then EchoMany automatically sends the video from the platform dashboard as a native Twitter reply.
