Do you remember my small article about the mini-tripod Gorillapod? Yesterday in an update I wrote that I have created a Flickr group called Gorillapod Love.
One of the announcements I made was to send an email to Joby, the manufacturer, to show off my links. The reaction was lightning fast; 10% off all products until the end of 2006!
Wow! What a fast reaction of the Gorillapod manufacturer Joby because of the creation of the Flickr group. Melissa Burns from Joby shot this email at me:
“I have looked through your articles and websites on the Gorillapod. You have a lot of rich content and wonderful photos. I especially enjoyed the Gorillapod Love Flickr group. In honor of this group, we have created a special Coupon Code for you and your online friends called “GorillapodLOVE”. If you enter that code (all one word, no quotes) into the Coupon Code field on the www.Joby.com checkout screen, you and your friends will receive 10% off on all Joby products until the end of this year. Please feel free to advertise this on your sites!”
Remember to send mails when setting links: 10 Tips for More Blog Traffic
If linking to somebody always send them an email about your new link and how to find the link. If it fits your niche always ask them to actively inform you by mail if they have something interesting for you to blog about. That way you will build up your network.
Even with 10% off Joby will make a nice profit on this little high quality plastic gadget. But somebody at Joby did for sure read something about viral marketing and the power of blogs 🙂
