Topical for the season – viral marketing

Check out the following url:

http://blog.wired.com/business/2008/12/welcome-to-the.html

JC Penny have masterminded an enormous campaign based on the usual premise that men can't buy presents for their wives / partners.  This video has placed on over 90 different video sharing sites with some 1.7 million views.  Way beyond expectations and mainly driven by the community. 

However it can go seriously wrong if you get the message wrong..... Johnson and Johnson pulled and add earlier this month that left the target market found the ad condescending. 

Why did one work and not the other - who really knows, with viral marketing the worst thing is that nobody has a comment about your advert.

Anyway I have no idea what to buy my wife for christmas - so some good suggestion would be welcome......

Creating a buzz through off–line and on–line marketing

Just been to a session on PR and on-line marketing, strange you might say - this is James speaking now.  Well it was very good and left a few thought sin my mind on how can a small business really exploit the use of effective PR.

The session talked about ensureing you post press releases to the correct sites, and take into consideration that sites like digg and stumbleupon do not tend to list press releases.  So you might say whats the point.

With the number of journalists dramatically declineing the on-line world is seeing a major uptake in what is cllaed the 'mom' blogger.  this is someone who reads an on-line press release then creates an on-line blog post linking through to the release.  This has a knock effect - it spreads the word and also enables digg and the various related services to pick up the article.

What can we as small business learn from this..... well, when you have a press release, place it on your site and then wirte about in your press release and if your site is working well you should start to see some traction.  If your article or release ends up on digg or starts to get a mention from other bloggers, let the world know by creating posts about where you appear and what people are saying.

More to come on how to blog effectively for you business, but those session are later in the conference.

By the way, it's cold and snowing in Chicago.


Keywords and domain names a way to win position

CEO from moniker.com has just presented on the use of keyword terms for identifying domain names to purchase.

This uses the idea of capturing traffic that users will search for and then pass them to either a focused site that identifies your core brand or 301 redirect to your main site. It can create a much better position in that competitors have to then use pay per click to rank higher as the keyword focused domain name with provide a higher rank. Examples are Johnson and Johnson own baby.com, Barnes & Noble own books.com. Two phrases that users would type in.

The speakers also went onto registering miss spelt keywords as domain names for example Microsoft own microsft.com a common typing error. The speaker suggested thinking of keywords and misspelt words and then use a domain registration company to see if your competitors have registered the domain names.

Obviously this can get very expensive so think about where it fits in win your online objectives as you should identify the benefits of registering multiple domains. 

Another quick tip from this session register domains for a long period of time this identifies to he search engine that you intend being around for a while, it shows some level of longevity.

Thinking about this the idea of domain names that have keywords does not really provide a clear advantage to search rankings acording to google and various other on-line sources, the principle works on people typing keywords into the search bar or browser bar guessing at sites that may exist and then the site will / should appear top listing into the searhc results.
