Did You Know??? 4.0 (VIDEO)

November 28th, 2009

If you haven’t seen the “Did You Know” videos by now, you should definitely check them out — here is the one Sony did for their annual of meeting of executives in Rome. It currently has 2.5 million views on youtube. A new version is now online, this one by The Economist magazine. It is, perhaps, not as dramatic as the Sony one, but a few statistics certainly pop out. For example, more content has been uploaded on youtube in the past TWO MONTHS than if ABC, CBS, and NBC had been airing new content since 1948! We had to watch it twice to make sure we got it right. What this all tells us of course, is how radically different our world is, and how the WWW has simply revolutionized how businesses are built and millions are made.

Social Marketing: “The Domino Effect”

April 16th, 2009

If you haven’t heard already, Dominos Pizza had a little problem recently. A couple of idiot employees videotaped themselves making a pizza in, shall we say, a not so sanitary way. They posted the clip on youtube (which has since been removed). The story hit the viral speedway; soon five of the top 12 Google search results for Domino’s referred to the incident. A public relations nightmare. Suddenly, long-time customers were starting to question buying pizzas there.

Old-school companies are having to redefine how they communicate. Social — or viral – marketing is, well, spreading, and becoming perhaps the dominate or most powerful marketing force out there. As we suggested in our Easter post, a viral campaign should be a part of your long-term plans; and you should realize it’s not a one-way street.

Today’s Internet Biz Lesson: “The Easter Bunny Hates You”

April 11th, 2009

For Easter, we decided to post the hilarious violent Easter bunny video. Today’s lesson is that YouTube — or video in general —  is a great viral marketing tool. Can you think of a video you can create that would promote your product in a fun, exciting way, that would build the kind of buzz that money can’t buy. In other words, Adwords is not the only way to build traffic.

BTW, if you’d like to learn how to easily add video to your web pages, blogs, eBay auctions, etc, check this out.

Happy Easter from the www.richdogmillionaire.com gang

Did You Know???? (Video)

March 21st, 2009

Well, here goes: our first post with embedded video. This is an astonishing video that shows we do indeed live in “exponential times.” Amazing stuff. It took radio 38 years to reach a market audience of 50 million; it took TV 13 years — it took the internet 4 years and Facebook 2 years!…1 in 8 couples married last year met online…China will soon be the number #1 English-speaking country in the world…The top 10 in-demand jobs estimated for 2010 did not even exist in 2004…If MySpace were a country, it’d be the 5th-largest in the world (between Indonesia and Brazil)…

BTW, yes the opening titles of the video look like the type-style of our blog but it is a nice coincidence. Maybe it means we’re all connected in these “exponential times.”
