Friday Fun: Three For One Marketing Strategies

01/26/2007

Friday Fun is Diva Marketing's virtual happy hour from cosmos to Jack to lemonade. A waiting for the weekend 'playground' time to be sophisticated-silly. Or sometimes just plain silly.

Today's Friday Fun is Three For One. Girlfriend, so much fun and so little time!

One For One - Ever wonder who is writing all these blogs? 2000bloggers2_1Wonder no more. Tino Buntic is creating a mosaic of 2000 Bloggers' faces. A. B. C. and X.Y. Z bloggers all together in one photo.

Des Walsh, Thinking Home Business is a few people away. On 2000 Bloggers I am fourth row from the bottom third in - thus far. My 'neighbors' are: stage right  Thomas Paine ( a British guy living in Moscow) stage left Jozjozjoz (an Asian American gal); top Juhan suku-uutiset (a guy from Finland); bottom Claudino (a guy from Romania).

Sidebar: Thanks for the photo Des <wink>!

A fun way to add yet another dimension to social networking .. and a very clever project that is sure to lift Tino's traffic. Hope it doesn't blow his server. If you want to add your photo drop a comment.

Two for Three - For my friends in MA brrr! I hear it's wicked cold. Ripple Effects Interactive and Pennsylvania Tourism Office once again have created an interactive website to play around in while we wait for Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction of an early or late spring.  Not much social media stuff going on but on Feb 2 you can watch, via a webcam, to see if the little groundhog will or will not see his shadow.

Three for Three - Ck_mousekateerAs this story goes, Drew McLellan was inspired by his vacation to Disney World to create an innovative Disney style eight-part series - "Marketing Lessons from Walt".  Creative CK suggested that he spin the "lessons" Disney style in to a formal, transferable format (PDF)and she'd volunteered to help get the buzz going. The deal she crafted: Her very own Disney Micky Mouse ears! Gotta love it .. bloggers helping bloggers.

business astrology for fun -
from The Astro Divas Paula Dare & Donna Page

 OK ladies, today is a fabulous day for shopping. With the Moon in Taurus and a strong Saturn, bargains on high priced quality items are piled high; consider it your own personal treasure trove to pick through. The only caution with the Moon in Taurus is you just might want to buy it all.

Mix pleasure with business on Saturday or Sunday, the planets support establishing trust and friendship in business relationships.  Launch a new project on Tuesday or Wednesday, the stars are in alignment for success. Now if you haven’t got your blog out into cyber sphere (gasp! Say it’s not true) have it set to go on Wednesday.

You are exactly right -- bloggers helping bloggers is something we all can value and contribute to.

It's clearly one of the more powerful elements of social media -- stripping away the competitive edge and instead helping us all be better together.

Thanks for the link and for sharing the story with your community.

Hey Diva: Thanks for promoting Drew's great series and the real story of bloggers helping bloggers. You teach me a lot on this goal--you should know that.

And I just love being on your blog all ear'd up! Can't wait to see you at Blogher

To be wicked cold it would have to warm up a little-it's brutal here! Phil-stay in the hole!

Drew and CK - pleasure to pass along an innovative and fun marketing approach.

CK - will you be wearing your ears at BlogHer?

Polli - thought you might catch the Boston 'wicked' remark ;-)
