Lost in [marketing] opportunity

Purtroppo non è andata molto bene ai geniali creatori dell’esplosivo video di fontane di Diet Coke e Mentos.

Infatti, nonostante il video sia diventato virale (è stato visto ben 4.1 milioni di volte), ha fatto guadagnare ai due creatori solamente 25.000 $.

I due si sono andati a lamentarsi con Business Week  del fatto che copie non autorizzate sono finite illegalmente su YouTube e Google Video negando loro ulteriori guadagni garantiti invece da Revver. Come potete vedere sopra, anche io ho linkato a YouTube e non a Revver (sorry but Wordpress non supporta fonti diverse da Google Video e YouTube.

Jackie Huba su Church of the customer blog li bacchetta, giustamente, affermando che invece di lamentarsi dovrebbero cavalcare (o meglio avrebbero dovuto) l’onda di questo successo incredibile creato dal nulla.

Si sono focalizzati solamente su come “far soldi” con quel video e non hanno pensato su come fruttare la visibilità che avevano creato. Classico esempio di marketing miopia che si basa sul “prendi i soldi e scappa“.

Forse erano un pò a digiuno di marketing e hanno ignorato che:

YouTube, Google Video, Revver and other video sharing sites act as fast-moving distribution networks world wide for advertising. With the right content, they are the digital equivalent of dropping Mentos into a liter of Diet Coke. Videos on them are the new 30-second ads. It’s content designed toward a marketing means.

Mah…sbagliando s’impara. Noi, guardando loro sbagliare, l’abbiamo fatto!

    I have seen a lot of useful factors on your web-site about computers.
    However, I’ve the thoughts and opinions that netbooks are still not nearly powerful adequately to be a sensible choice if you often do projects that require a lot of power, for instance video touch-ups. But for world-wide-web surfing, microsoft word processing, and most other prevalent computer functions they are just fine, provided you cannot mind the small screen size. Many thanks for sharing your opinions.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    But think about if you added some great photos or
    videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics
    and videos, this site could undeniably be one of the greatest in
    its field. Excellent blog!

    What you said was very logical. However, consider this, what if you were to
    write a killer headline? I ain’t saying your content isn’t
    solid, however suppose you added a title to maybe grab
    people’s attention? I mean Lost in [marketing] opportunity | [Marketing] Departure lounge is a little vanilla. You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article titles to get viewers interested.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab people excited
    about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

    and it holds biggest importance for your B2B online marketing
    strategy. I don’t know if that qualifies me as an Internet

    look professional then you need your own webhosting with your own domain name.

    You don’t need to go to the beach for this favorite treat.
    When we try to muscle through with just conviction as our army
    we’re doing it the hard way. It was well known that oats were grown, stored, milled and packaged with wheat products
    are were typically very contaminated with gluten.
