Valeska Jacques, Co-Founder of Rivvid

Meet Valeska Jacques. Valeska is Co-Founder of Rivvid, a unique video trivia platform that allows anyplayer to convert any YouTube video into trivia. Rivvid has been featured on Channel 10 news,ESPN Deportes, and local magazines. So far, brands such as Southland Mall, Teeccino, Zoo Miami, XMA (Extreme Martial Arts), and many local small businesses have started using video trivia to create “share-worthy” content and leverage it for cause related marketing. Valeska’s literacy and Don’t Text and Drive video trivia campaigns have captured sponsors such as Purina Mills, State Farm, and many local businesses to advocate the cause.

In 2007, she launched the Miami Beach Technology Council in Miami Beach and served 4 years on the Board of Directors for the National Association of Women Business Owners in Miami. Currently she serves on the board for the President’s Assembly national organization of the National Association of Women Business Owners and sits on the Communications Committee for NAWBO’s Los Angeles chapter. In 2011, she moved her family to Los Angeles, California to spearhead Rivvid’s product launch.

Chris here. Learn more about what Rivvid is doing with companies in the social gaming universe at our April 24 panel. I’m interested in what the gaming demographics are for her clients as well as effectiveness of trivia games online. I’ve always wanted to battle it out in a sci-fi trivia game. Maybe I can find one that’ll suit my needs. Some questions I’d like to know:

1. What sort of companies has Rivvid been working with lately?

2. How does Rivvid (or their clients) integrate this kind of gaming campaign into the clients’ existing marketing plan? OR do they? (Is this a one-off?)

3. What have you seen work that you can share as a best practice?

4. I won 580 points on the Line Dancing video trivia. What can I redeem those points for?

Get your questions ready for Valeska and the panel when we head to ING DIRECT Cafe LA on Tuesday evening, April 24!
