Was this TI (The Illusion)? Probably.
Good use of money to generate traffic? Maybe.
Was it ridiculous? Yes.
Was it fun? Absolutely!
You may have received a card from a naked girl wearing only body paint in downtown Chicago. Maybe you didn’t. Either way you found yourself here.
This is 100% pure shameless marketing. Many websites that talk about promotion give excellent tips on how to use other online tools. These are all great methods, and these blogs give great advice. Now, it can be great connecting with people in these ways, but they lack something. An element is missing. Pure fun! Pure awesome! Umph! Whatever you want to call it!
Do something different. Do something fun. Be Innovative. There are a million different ways to generate traffic. Some ways are more enjoyable than others. I have a Twitter & Facebook account. I am on StumbleUpon, & Delicious. Yet, good old fashioned “pirate marketing” can be just as effective, (and a whole lot more fun)!!!
Now, I’m not advocating everyone hire a bunch a naked models to slap on their logo in body paint. I am advocating using “pirate marketing” techniques where both you (and your readers) are amused and entertained. Use “on the ground” techniques or internet methods, as long as they’re fun and creative.
If you don’t like the content of my blog, that’s ok. I just hope you enjoyed seeing something different on your lunch break today.
