Bite-sized Friday: Ads, an award and one bad video

By July 18, 2008 No Comments

Who needs a movie?

If you have a website, video content can dramatically improve your conversions. Here are a few testimonial videos that we’ve produced for Gene Juarez Academy.

The following video is a self-promo for a small video production company, and it’s so bad, it’s downright entertaining. In fact, it’s been viewed more than 832,000 times and has a 4.5/5 rating.

I’m not sure if this classifies as a viral video because I haven’t been able to determine if it’s real or not. If it isn’t, consider me duped.

Don’t worry, Sharon and Fred do not work with Outsource Marketing.

App advertising on the iPhone

I bought the first version of the iPhone within a week of its release and wasn’t sure if I’d upgrade to the new 3G when it came out. But someone pocketed my iPhone when I left it on a counter at a restaurant, so I was forced to buy the new 3G.

It’s all it’s cracked up to be, and more. Part of that more, I was surprised to find, was advertising in iPhone apps. It’s not overly intrusive, but it’s there.

An award we’re proud to win

Outsource Marketing selected a Best Workplace for Recycling

We’ve been told we’d win our fair share awards if we’d just take the time to submit our work to the awards shows. I guess we’re just a little indifferent—it’s great PR, but when we share our portfolio, it gets the job done.

An award we are proud to receive is from King County, recognizing Outsource Marketing as a Best Workplace for Recycling for 2008.

One of the smartest things we’ve done was develop an internal “Green Pact” and set out to green our company. We started in 2006, and won the award in 2007 as well.

It’s easy.

It’s fun.

And it’s the right thing to do.

Try it. You’ll like it.
