Friday Fun: Everyone Needs A Best Friend

03/08/2007

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.

Best_friends_max_the_dog_and_tab_the_cat_3Friday Fun wraps up a week that began with a post, Social Media Networking, about how to make friends online and ends with the importance of Best Friends complements of Max, my Westie pup and his best friend Tab the Cat.

Max and Tab romp and run and wrestle as seven year old Lindsay (Tag's person) tells their story. It's a feel good watch that I hope you enjoy and brings a smile to the start of a wonderful weekend.

This one is special for Max's fans .. especially Wayne Hurlbert and his sweet mom in Canada, Alf Nucifora who insisted Max would be perfect for me, and Donna Lyons-Miller (GourmetStation) her husband Jeff and the Royals who take such good care of him when I'm On The Road.

Now the marketer comes out .. let's spin this with a little experiment. I don't know about you but I am really curious to understand how those little YouTube videos bubble up. Is it the number of views? The voting?  I can't even pull this video up in a category search. I have not a clue how anyone found it.

Any help you can give to a viral or wom pass along to encourage people to view the video  http://youtube.com/watch?v=WWT6y1K7y9A would be appreciated. Periodically I'll post updated stats. Let's make Max a featured YouTube Favorite!

Today Venus trines Saturn which is good for being objective and practical in business matters. This is a good week to take the opportunity to be alone and contemplate your business strategies. What are your goals? What is working and what isn’t working?

Enjoy your week. Take time out of your busy schedule to relax and smell the coffee.

This made my day. I've seen Max play with other dogs - a normal behavior one could say. But the cat....that is so Maxie. He's such a precious boy. Not a bad bone in his body. Go Max go!

You were right, Olivia loved it! We tried the Share button but could not pass along...

Barb - I just tried the "share" and it worked for me.

What a wonderful surprise for my Mom! She just loved the video of Max and his friend. She was also flattered to be mentioned on your blog. She is now an even bigger fan of Maxie than ever! Thank you for brightening her day so much.

Toby,

I now have Max and Tab over at my blog. And I linked to you, as well. Hope we make them famous.

I LOVE the video! Max and Tab are a riot! They look like they're having such fun - the video is great!

Have a super weekend!

Hi

I enjoy visiting your site.

Are you up for a meme? I've tagged you at my blog. The meme is called "Are You Talking to Me?" and explores who you blog for, and who your audience is. I found it an interesting topic to reflect on.

If you want to take on the meme, come over and check it out.

Thanks for a great blog.

All the best.

Hi Toby --

Cute video. I'm a dog-lover, and I passed it along to a few friends who also love animals.

The marketing question you pose is a good one, and I don't have the answer either. How do you find a video on YouTube, or as a marketer, how do you get people to view it?
I have a couple of clients who are starting to ask about putting stuff on YouTube, since it's been talked about so much. Putting something on the site is easy, but getting people to see it is the challenge.

You have a good weekend too. Regards.

I found your blog from BlogHer and I've been enjoying it, especially since I have a Westie too. :)

Toby-

Thanks for the reply. I’ve been reading the Diva Marketing Blog for several months now. You always have great topics and interviews. I would actually venture to say that your blog is what pushed me over the edge to dive headfirst into the blogosphere and start something of my own. Thanks for the nudge. ;)

Also, how strange is it that you also own a Jetta? That has still got me tickled. Who would have thought?
