Viral Marketing – John Smeaton

Posted on: July 2, 2007

Sometimes you’ve gotta love the web.

On Friday I got pissed in Glasgow. On Saturday I picked my car up and on the way home heard about the heroics of one man at Glasgow Airport – John Smeaton.

Little did I know that my viral marketing brain was running low on power. If I had I would have bought JohnSmeaton.com. Unfortunately someone has made it already!

They’ve got links from god knows where, including here, they’re on the BBC website – a site where most people seek out links as if it was DMOZ four years ago.

Well done to John and If I ever meet ‘BAA’s answer to Jack Bauer’ I’ll buy him a pint.

So viral marketing to get links, good curve if you can find it, even better if you can find a hot topic and get it all up and running asap.

John Smeaton Update

Following on from the John Smetaon affect I got some people to do some testing. They had a look at what you would get from a link from the johnsmeaton.comwebsite. One guy got over 1,500 hits to his website from it in under two days! He normally gets thirty to the site.
