How to drive traffic with a crazy challenge or outlandish stunt


online-business-drive-traffic-crazy-claimsOne way to build up a great following fast is to do something just a little crazy.

If you’ve ever watched a reality TV show such as Amazing Race or Survivor, then you know what a draw it can be to attempt something just a little crazy. Millions of people tune in each and every week to see which team will survive (or not) in Amazing Race and what new catastrophes will befall the cast of Survivor.

In fact, this is a tried and true marketing technique that companies have been using for more than a century and you can easily do something similar in your business.

There are many examples, but consider this stunt in 1954.  A.W. Fawcett, Guinness’ Managing Director, came up with the idea of dropping 50,000 sealed Guinness bottles into the ocean, each one of them sealed with a message which asked the finder to tear off a part of the message and return it to Guinness.

Maybe you don’t think of yourself as a marketer or don’t like promoting yourself or even your content.

You might be an introvert.

Yet you need to get your message out there.

You might have heard about the power of video to elicit a reaction. On social media, for example, there’s quite a bit of research about the value of video to get “likes” and shares.

Before I explain ways you can use video even if you aren’t comfortable with promotion, let me give you some statistics.

Why you should be using video
